Given the defense and rebounding woes – I think coach should consider starting the three bigs – TK, JC and JG along with AP and KR. Perhaps a zone would help defend the 3-ball and protect the bigs from foul trouble (and fatigue).
I know this leaves minimal options for a 4/5 coming off the bench but – until we get healthy – our bigs ought to get used to playing 35+ minutes …
I’d love to see the 3 bigs, but I don’t know if it’s possible. They really are the only 3 true forwards right now. Looking back, it makes me wonder how it wasn’t such an issue last year. JGs health has to be the answer, I guess. CB was barely able to play, and the SC experiments at the 4 were – less than ideal.
To make matters worse, it seems that playing zone makes it more difficult to control the defensive glass. Another major headache so far.
