We should start Baston tomorrow
In thinking about tomorrows matchup's, one thing we havent really had to deal with in the last 2 games without both Bargs and Bosh is a team with a traditional frontline. With KG and Perkins up front, we can't start JG anymore unless he finds a brain pre game and also learns how to box out a 7 foot 260 pound guy. So the question is, who starts at PF? We cant go small or one we'll get destroyed in the paint, so we either have to start Humphries, or Baston. Both make sense, but I like the Baston on KG and Rasho on Perkins combo better. I dont really trust Humphries on the boards vs Perkins(he hasnt shown all year really he can box out and get the boards, we've been outrebounded bigtime when he comes into games) and I think we'll be better defensively overall with the Baston/Rasho combo to start the game.

As long as Joey doesnt start, we shouldnt get manhandled in the first half anyway, I hope.

I dont' mind starting Baston but i'd rather try Rasho on KG first because KG will tear Baston a new one nasty style. The only guy on our team smart enough to defend KG is Rasho..the question is physically can he pull it off, but i've seen him shut down Dwight Howard last year so i'd be confident giving him the opportunity... then have Humpries spell Rasho.

I wonder if having Moon on KG would work - probably not, but really, what's our number 2 option, Humphries?

It's a lose-lose situation if you ask me, because whether Moon's on KG or Pierce, we're still screwed because one of those two will have a weaker defender covering them. Jamario stands a better chance of shutting down PP if you ask me. I'd keep him there. JMO

We have an defensive answer for allen in parker and delfino. We have an answer for pierce in Moon and maybe delfino. Our big problem is going to be Garnett. If Rasho, Baston, humpfrys managed to make a good denfense on him, we might not lose by more than 10.
