I do worry about our guards though, we have been giving up big games to opposing PGs.

As for the no shows I posted at the beginning of the thread, thanks to all the capt. obviouses out there who pointed out those guys weren't likely playing anyways, a big round of 'd'oh' for you all, I just wanted to post notable eligible no shows.

I think one of your problems is lack of floor spacing when you put out your best defensive lineup (Joseph, Thompson, Anthony) vs. awful perimeter defense when Rautins and Heslip are out there.

I think the best lineup might be something like: C. Joseph, Rautins, K. Joseph, Thompson, and Nicholson. Is Jermaine Anderson the backup point guard or is it Devoe Joseph?

Carl English should have been called up. He's been one of the most prolific scorers in Spain the past few years.

Would have liked to see Vasquez playing but he's injured.....

Yep and his backup is recent Hawks' draftee Raul Neto.
