Shumpert had some nice penetrate and dish passes to Amare. If we can get that from him consistently, I'd be a happy man.
And Fields isn't really a scorer.
With Shumpert and Douglas starting we wouldn't have anyone to score from the bench.
TD is a streaky shooter,when his shot is falling he can change the game.
Also it seems like he regressed on defense this year. He was never that bad.
Maybe people exploited his weaknesses this season.
