Kevin Durant is at the two so Love can be on the first team. Love is a top 3 player in the league along with lebron and durant so room will be made to get him on 1st team.
Is there a precedent for this (the "making room" theory)?
Also, Dragic was horrid in that game this week. You're right, he didn't have much help, but if he's a superstar as you say, then by definition, he should be able to win a game by himself. That's what superstars do (really, superstars are able to win complete playoff series single handedly given the right circumstances).
That was like a game 7 for Phoenix, and he played horrible transition defense, had head-scratching, costly turnovers, and shot an air-ball on a chance to cut a 4 point lead to 1 under 30 seconds left.
CP3 hasn't done much in the playoffs, but he would have shown up in that game if the roles were reversed.
