Lawrence Frank likes 3-guard option
The Detroit News reports:
Necessity is often the mother of experimentation for an NBA coach, so Lawrence Frank wasn't exactly reinventing the wheel when he used a three-guard lineup in the fourth quarter Wednesday against the Celtics.
Rodney Stuckey was the attacker, Brandon Knight the steady hand, and Ben Gordon the finisher, hitting three 3-pointers to close out a 98-88 victory.
It's a dangerous lineup to use because defensively Gordon and Knight aren't big guards. Frank, however, won't rule out using it again.
"It's a little tougher (at times), but it's something we can do," Frank said. "Especially when BG's rolling and into the game on both ends. It gives you more options."
