Depend's on what is needed, as long as I don't see that Jack & Caldy combo I'm happy.

We should only use the Jose+Jack combo against small lineups. I actually think it should be Jack+Whoever earns it

Lets see where jose's at in term of his return from injury. Until he shows he is 100% healthy and in the flow then use jack with whoever is playing well at the time, I like Beli but his shot is way too inconsistent, Demar is still wildly inconsistent and well Wright should be there for defense...

Jack/Weems or Derozan and Wright for defensive purposes.

Jose/Beli and Turk for offensive.

You know people who dont like that jack and caldi match up at the end. It actually was very affective lastnight, but when matching up with louis williams and A.I. that made the most sense, and i know calederon let a blow by late in the game was still playing decent defense throughout the game disregarding the slip. The jack/calderon project i think can be sucessful in certain plays, they both can take the ball of the bounce and cut the corner well.

It has worked well in closing the last two games, i think now that the teams chemistry is flowing better that the match up can pose a threath along side a mobile frontcourt of Bosh and bargs, along side a shooter and a dynamic player like Hedo.

I think it depends on the match up however Jose is the best ball handler on the team. Jack scares me when he dribbles in traffic and he gets so many balls deflected which latelly have not been turn overs. Both Jack and Jose are pretty close when it comes to d however every thing else Jose gets the nod.

Jose and wright. It depends on situation but a like this combo, but it does puts a lot pressure on the front court to provide scoring.

Uh, no it was not. Jose was getting burned time after time after time. We are lucky it was Philly we were playing against. If Jay tries that combo against Boston if it is a close game at that point or even if we have a lead we will lose and if you were watching the Orlando game that combo blew a double digit lead with help from shitty officiating.

We played there match up well. i aint the biggest fan of the combo but we were able to close out a win and get buckets when it counted and at the same time having a presence on the perimetre. and as you can tell Triano has done a good job with switching offense and defensive players late in the game.

Jose+Belli. Those two play good together. That would be our offensive line-up and then when we switch to defence afterwards it should change to Jack and Wright/Weems

id trust jack + demar more than jack + belli cause sometimes belli makes whack decisions. id say anything but jose + jack got to be the worst combo to finish games.

I think Jack and whoever is playin good that night. weems/wright/marco, whoever really, depends on the otherteam as well.

for example against orlando jack got destroyed by vince, not a good move.

but against phili jack could handle iverson with the height difference being less obvious.

I like weems in there too, he has made some clutch plays, great defender.
