If Hedo misses the next game or more who would you want starting in his place? I would say that it would be Wright due to his experience.

Id go with Weems, stick someone very athletic onto Allen, try to make him work a bit at both ends. Weems postups on offense and constant back switching with him and Demar.

Boston loves to run backdoor screens with the 2 wings coming out of opposite sides. Derozan and Weems are athletic enough to combat that.

Weems is the most deserving imo.

I'd like to see Weems absorb the minutes but it will most likely be Antoine Wright getting the nod and that pains me.

Who knows, maybe this is the opportunity Wright needs to get off the shnide.

You'd think Beli would, but I don't think I'll ever wrap my head around some of the substitutions Jay makes.

I just know that at this point no Turkoglu means more Antoine Wright. Bleh.

My vote would be for Weems since he's consistent right now with his defense and can score and rebound some.

Belli's good in the 6th man role so I wouldn't move him....

I agree though that it'll prob. be Wright because he's a vet. In spite of the hate for him I think that he's getting closer to 100% now.... and that can only be a good thing.

Wright
I don't think it matters who starts, and I don't like changing too much
Marco, derozan and weems have settled into their roles, let them still ...

Wright. It doesn't matter that Weems has been playing better then Wright cuz Wright has more experience and that he might even get pulled early to put in Weems.

We could really use a Wright in mid season form. He's actually a sick baller, what's with you Toronto fans? It seems like you guys hate Wright

it makes sense to start wright so that he matches up against allen and i assume tony allen starts at sf for the celtics so demar should be able to handle him

I think Wright like Turk need the ball in his hands more; I'm not giving up on Wright yet because when he can play his game to his fullest strength its going to help Toronto a lot. I think what Wright need is a partner to feed him and know each other game like when he was in NJN last year with VC. Lets see if he can play at a different level if he is paired with Bosh?

DD starts SF and Belinelli starts SG. Demar has the size and the speed to play SF, and starting might raise Belli's confidence even more.

I answered Wright, hes most suitable in starting lneup.
But then I remembered Marco and Ray Allen have some history. Would love Belli to shut down Ray

Good point. Allen could just go to sleep on Wright
