    If Melo ain't starting
    and
    We want EGO for the second Unit

    This kid looks like he should start over Ennis

    23 points lead. great defense.

    CP3 is smiling now having to play two guys because Melo sucks on defense

    Gary Clark showing up big on TNT and against the Warriors

    Meanwhile, Melo goes 0 for 11 against OKC

    THIS IS IT!!!!

    We're unstoppable now that MELO is gone

    THE STANK IS GONE

    He won't unless Ennis gets hurt . I like Clark ..... a lot . But Ennis is also playing well . No reason to shake things up

    MDA wants to stagger Clark and Tucker to start the game.

    And that's the right move, since Ennis can't play backup PF.

    Never as long as ennis is healthy. Clark isn't a wing. He's a stretch 4. He runs and moves like a big. My guess is he'll continue to play the backup 4 for the rest of the season. We still need a 3 and D guy to replace Ariza to fully go back to where we were a season ago.

    Clark reminds me so much of a gsw harrison Barnes especially once he starts hitting his 3 consistently

    But how does his contract even work? Do we have the option of signing him for the rest of the year?

    Hes good.

    I honestly think right at the end of his 45 days he will get a multi year contract. Within that will be a transition to starter.

    Similar to how long it took tucker to become starter.

    So, sub him out in the first wave with cp3 for Ennis and then bring him back in when you bench tucker.

    What's wrong with that?

    Rox just got their groove back and he's playing well so not any time soon and that's coming from someone who loves the kids game.

    I'm as big a Clark fan as anyone but how can you bench Ennis after this game? He was outstanding.

    he turns 24 tomorrow. he's a rookie, but he's not a kid. he's two years older than Chriss, who is in his fourth season.

    and his strength right now is defense, which is the most common reason rookies don't see a lot of playing time.

    No need to disrespect Ennis by starting Clark instead. Ennis is coming around. This game proved it, and Clark has moved up in the rotation. I'm more concerned about locking up Mr. Clark. Do it, Daryl!
