Default More changes coming to the Starting 5?

RAPTORS: Mike Ulmers Blog

“We’re thinking about it, just from the energy point of view,” he said. “We’ll wait and see about the health of our players.”

Could that mean a move to the bench for Turkoglu? In his last four games, the Raps big off-season acquisition has averaged eight points and just a little over four rebounds a night. Antoine Wright meanwhile, contributed 15 points and two rebounds against Utah.

What vexed Triano was the team’s lack of will.

“Our overall mindset has to be a bit tougher,” said Triano. “Last night, I can’t argue with the first couple of shots we took, a Bargnani 15-footer and Jose with a couple of wide open threes. But when we don’t make those, we seem to feel like we’re defeated.”

With a dozen games left, the Raptors have control of their own future. While the Chicago Bulls have returned starters Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose from injury, they remain two games behind Raptors.

Conversely, the 35-35 Raps can still move out of their eighth perch. They are one and a half games behind Miami and sixth-place Charlotte.

The Raptors have 12 games left, 11 after Friday’s date with the 47-25 Nuggets.

Jack meanwhile addressed the team at centre court at the end of Thursday’s practice.

“You have to have a short memory in games, and more importantly per possession,” he said later. “If they score, so what? Take the ball, run it down on them and the next time, make sure you don’t have the same breakdown.”

And as far next times go, Jack is hopeful of a cheerier time watching the team on video.

“Everybody is looking at the loss saying it looked bad,” he said. “It felt even worse.”

Moving Hedo to the bench would be GREAT. Hope it happens.

I would like to see Jack, Wright, Weems, Bosh and Bargs start.

Second unit Jose, Hedo, Derozen,Amir and Evans.

Jack,Bosh,Bargs,Hedo and Jose would all stiil get their minutes.

This would get Bosh and Bargs more focus on offence and the same could be said about Jose and Hedo. Hedo would be more of a set up guy with Jose being more of a shooter. Amir and Evans would just go crazy grabbing rebounds and kicking out to Jose and Hedo..DD would add some jump for alley oop passes from Jose.

As much as I hate Derozan being demoted for the other starters not doing their fucking jobs nightly, I'd go with this:

Jack, Jose
Wright, Demar
Turk, Sonny
Bosh, Amir
Bargs, Amir

No more Jose/Turk combo, and no more Evans. Amir not playing 20+ MPG is hurting us off the bench. Then we have a guy who we can put the other teams best player no matter if theyre a 1 2 or 3, and our bench is filled with energy guys who Jose plays well with.

I'm not a fan of taking DeMar out of the starting lineup for one reason & one reason only no lob dunks in the starting 5 & to me Lob dunks are important!

I think Hedo is going to the bench!!

I want this line up:

Jack/Jose
Derozan/Beli
Wright/Hedo
Bosh/Evans
AB/Amir

Yeah because lob dunks which happen once every 2 or 3 games win games :|.

Triano will resign as head coach before Hedo goes to the bench.

I believe Lob dunks & Dunking in general are important they kill the moral of your opposition, Just look at what happened on the first play of our last game?

& almost all the best wing players in this league can dunk off lob passes & on there own I do believe that your ability to dunk & dunk aften does change your team...I would rather have our team dunk more often then just take jump shots!

And at this point with all the losses I atleast want to get my money's worth & see a damn lob dunk from time to time!!!

Putting Wright in the starting line up won't make us win more games unless you plan on taking Hedo out! At least thats what I think!

& no DD what so ever? That aint gonna fly

Although I do think Beli should get some PT...I also think that using our deep roster is a good thing!! SCREW this tightening the lineup it hasn't worked & isn't working...Our team is built with 1 all-star & a bunch of average players that can sometimes have bad games so the bench needs to be explored to find the hot hand, like earlier in the season!

Start: Jose Demar Weems Bosh Bargs
Amir first big off the bench - young guns in action
Bench: Jack Hedo Wright Amir
Less time with both Hedo and Jose on the floor, more chances for set threes for Jack Wright and Bargs.
I wish there was time for Belli...

guys, HEDO WILL NOT BE BENCHED PERIOD. he's gonna take DD out of the starting lineup for either Wright or Weems, thats the only thing possible or unless he puts jack back in for jose.

i would have benched hedo LONGGGGGGGG time ago, but we all know politics wont allow that too happen especially with the playoffs around the corner.

I would like to see Amir Johnson start with Bosh and Bargnani. He would bring alot of the intangibles Marion brought last year with his ability to slash, play under the basket and rebound as well as defend with significant more quickness than Turk. That would give us at least one big who's not afraid to get dirty and aggressive in the defensive paint. He would take alot of the defending and rebounding onus off of Bosh and Bargs. Plus he would add a great deal of speed and get you some offensive putbacks which are so key when shots aren't falling.

Amir is not a SF. And he is perfect as a backup big man too. If not for Evans screwing up his minutes...
Let me iterate again, put Weems in starting lineup. That will improve D and get a lot of fast break points
