Best defensive lineup late in games
 
8 second left in the game we're up 2 and need a stop as they inbound the ball. Who do you have on the floor?

just4_raps 10-30-2012 08:37 PM

Lowry
Ross (maybe? he's supposed to be defensive minded. we'll see how true that is)
McGuire
Amir
Val

carp 10-30-2012 08:44 PM

kyle, demar, McGuire, bargnani, jv.

AlexRaphael 10-30-2012 08:44 PM

Lowry or Lucas (depending on the opponent, because Lucas is defensive-minded,also)
Anderson or Fields
Dom McG
Amir or Bargnani (Andrea is a good 1 on 1 defender, while Amir is a good help defender)
JV or Gray (Gray maybe due to experience and size)

KoolAid 10-30-2012 08:46 PM

Lowry
Fields
McDonalds (haha aren't I punny)
Depends on opponent (I'd play Bargs vs Kevin love but Amir vs Blake)
Jo-Va

Lowry
Anderson
Fields or McGuire
Bargnani
Valanciunas

Although he's one of our best defenders...do you really see Casey putting in McGuire with 10 seconds left on the clock? It just occurred to me...I don't think you'll see any coach put in an end of the bench guy at the end of a close game.

My revised lineup:
Lowry
Ross
Fields
Bargs/Amir
Val

So a rookie playing 12mpg (a guess) guarding one of the toughest positions would be better than McGuire?

C is no longer one of the toughest positions due to the lack of actually good Cs and also Val will be starting so im assuming that means 20+ mpg

But yeah still very few good SGs and he's supposed to be defensive-minded...you're partly right though.

Agree to disagree I guess.

If Ross is in for defensive purposes late in games it would mean great things for this team because it would show he's impressing. I hope you're right.

Aamir 10-30-2012 10:31 PM

Lowry
Fields
McGuire
Amir
Val

KoolAid 10-30-2012 10:37 PM

Also it should be noted I put what I felt DC would put out, not necessarily the best lineup, but the most realistic.

Metallikid 10-30-2012 11:21 PM

For pure defence:

Lowry
Anderson
McGuire
Davis
Valanciunas

It's tough between Davis and Amir but I think Ed has the defensive edge.

Dario 10-31-2012 12:19 AM

Davis Mcquire Lowry Val AA

RAPMAN 10-31-2012 10:32 AM

Lowry, Anderson, Mcguire, Amir, Jonas
