    Rather see both squads at full strength? or put the bench guys in so we know no major injuries going into the season?

    I wonder how cheaply Ersan could be had now.

    Bucks have such a young talented front court with Larry Sanders, Jabari Parker, and John Henson (He has had lots of great games last season)

    Will starters see time or just scrubs for both teams?

    Not to mention with the cap going up so much in the next 2 years, will it effect our cap situation that much?

    Starters should get 8-10 minutes in the first quarter and then the bench mob the rest of the way. Have to make those hard cuts so might as well see what you have

    I bet Pop leaves one third of the squad home.

    Ummmmmm...I don't know. I think our first unit and rotations need to be clearly worked out before starting the regular season. Therefore, I'm in favor of playing it almost like a regular season game, so that when the regular season starts, we can get off to a great start.

    This teams still needs to find chemistry. We are not a veteran group that has played together many years and won championships like the Spurs have. Sure they can rest their starters, but I don't think we have the luxury. We need to be trying to build a championship.

    You can't worry about injuries at this point. They could just as easily happen in the first regular season game as they could in the last preseason game.

    Therefore, Rockets starters beat the Spurs bench 101-98.

    If it's our scrubs against their scrubs, we are losing by 50. 40 if Pop takes mercy on us.

    I think the 1st half will be played like a regular season game. Then the second half is for the people on the bubble or to iron out the bench rotation.
