Smaller lineup, pretty much

And a general homoeroticism for inexplicable Bargnani minutes

The big problem is that Rasho plays on offence too close to the basket, meaning Dwight can roam around and block shots to his heart's content.

The gameplan now is to put something who plays on the perimeter on him (Bosh, Bargnani) to pull him away from the basket.

In theory our gameplan makes sense, though in the regular season I believe Rasho was our best defender on Howard. Plus we are playing a lot of zone, and getting torched by open shooters, which makes no sense.

Comeon Benzo you're better than that.

We cant play Raptors basketball vs ORL with Rasho in the game because Howard can just roam and literally be the 2nd line of defence when Rasho is it. Theres no spacing when hes on the floor and he isnt making a big difference vs Dwight anyway. With the small/Bargnani at C lineup in it forces Dwight away from the basket or on Bosh which gives us a huge advantage as you can see with the 2nd-4th qtr scores in both games.

Hopefully now with the lineup change to start the fucking game we'll get off to a good start and drain them the restof the game.

Meh...Rasho does a good job on Howard....can hit an 18 foot jumper...worked more tha once in the regular season...

I have a feeling people maybe over thinking this thing.

If we're not going to play him, at least get him in there for some "Hack'a Howard" as well Humphries. Get in his head and bang him up a bit at least.

Again, you go hack a Howard you take away your advantage on offence since Humphries will screw up our spacing and Howard will play center field.

Why hack a Howard when the guy is shooting 70%?

First game was a fluke at the free throw line for him. He showed his true colours last game when he only shot 55% from the line. He'll be even less effective on the road in front of a loud ACC crowd. I'm not implying that Rasho and Humps getting alot of playing time, but make the best of the minimal time they do play.

Meh, I think we've been fine with him doing his thing, its stopping the other guys thats the problem. Its not like Dwights been getting many postup iso plays, hes just moving around from side to side and getting most of his pts off others penetration or ball swing where hes already 2 ft under the bucket. We played fine last game with the rotations and such after the first qtr. We just need to have EVERYONE rebound and take away the angles for the entry feed by possibly fronting him and having the weakside guy come over too
