Raptors Starters, rotation

If you had to change the starting 5, what would you change? Same with the rotation......and what happened to Casey's tight 8-9 man rotation?

My starting 5:

Lowry
Derozan
Anderson
Bargnani
Valanciunas

I might even start McGuire, I like his D and he can get to the rim and finish. This way our wings off the bench are Kleiza and Anderson who can actually shoot. Bury Fields on the bench!!

Bargnani, Calderon and Amir would be the key guys off the bench, with Kleiza, Lucas, Fields and McGuire given minutes in certain situations.

fields actually played alright this game. I'd still start fields over anderson and mcguire. those two you bring to exploit advantages, i.e a small sf bring on mcguire, a slow one, bring on anderson. fields is the de facto starter for now, and he's done what a SF should. his shot will drop, his mechanics are fine, just confidence now.

I'd be willing to sub Fields for Anderson pretty quickly though if that lineup needed more scoring punch.

Time for Bargs to go to the bench.

I think you could start different 3s at different times, and see what develops or doesn't and wait for that trade.

We are a defensive team..... Why would we have our best defensive player playing 5 mins a game? More game time = more experience = Better.... its that simple

Ed needs more minutes man, if Bargs plays like he did today, put that dude on the bench.

That would be a nice bench, Amir + Jose work really well together, Amir and Bargs looked great together last season went Bargs went Beastgnani.

I was really hoping Ross could become a defensive gem sooner rather than later, in which case I'd say firm up the perimeter D by using him rather than Jose at the 2, and maybe trade Jose and use Lucas in limited minutes instead.

starting line up is fine. Casey just can't go to the two pg line up in key situations.
Thought he did an awful job with the minutes in the second half.

Ed Davis was money early on in the 4th and he gets taken out?!??!?!!?
Aaron Gray playing the last 14 minutes of the game??? Come on...
I guess I can let the 2pg line up slide for the nets game since they went to a 2pg line up... but in that situation why not keep Demar at the 2 and exploit the nets with his new post skills?

Casey seems to be giving minutes based on reputation over good play, which is why you saw Bargs and Calderon down the stretch.

You guys want to bench Bargs after 2 games?

lol

Yes he's really supposed to get back to that first 15 game stretch form last season by being buried on the bench....good call...

It's 2 freaking games against 2 top EC teams... 1 of which was on the road mind you..

As you can see from my thoughts above, I would start using the 3 starter role as a try out to see who deserves it.

What is concerning me is that we are regressing with respect to getting some easy fast break points. I believe this may be one of the areas that Fields has shown ability in the past, but so far he has struggled in the season. This may be an area that Ross could help. I'm hoping to see him play soon to better assess what he will bring.
