    It is not an easy pick as to who should play the most minutes. Every minute counts when the game is closed

    At this point, each of the four has a huge weak point in their basketball skills.

    Faried can provide some more offensive value than Nene.
    Nene can provide some more defensive value than Faried
    Green has difficult time to guard best perimeter defender.
    Shumpert weak point is Shot selection and offensive efficiency.

    Faried and Green for sure. You need people that can get buckets and/or make tough shots.

    Shump only plays if Green isn't making any shots. Green is a liability on defense but as long as he can make shots it doesn't matter.

    Nene is way too slow to keep up, the few minutes he gave us in the WCF last year were painful.

    Green and Faried. I'd have Gary Clark ahead of Shump and Nene for this series.

    Faried and Green!

    We need all the defensive rebounds we can get and Faried can secure those boards.

    Greens ability to shoot and spread the floor is also key.

    Faried and Green at the same time against GS is a recipe for disaster defensively.

    Gerald crazy shooting would help a lot here, but will he ll be able to make them consistently without being a complete black hole on defense? Eh...maybe it's time for Shumpert but i still think Mike will give Gerald a chance and i'm ok with this.

    Faried over Nene in this series i'd say but i don't know, he was great in a game and terrible in another one...Kenneth really needs to be able to be at least decent on D, looked like trash against the Jazz.
