I get that McHale is tinkering and trying to fit new toys together, but I can't pinpoint the rationale behind his minute allocation. Is he just trying to create chemistry with what will ultimately be our playoff rotation? Is it match-ups? Letting players get to 100%? Is it based on play in practice that fans can't see? It seems to me that Bev and Terry could be more effective if we lower their minute totals, allowing Canaan to get some PT. Does McHale simply have something against playing 3rd-string PGs (re: Brooks last year)? Aside from CF's standard "McHale Blows" mantra, I wanted to open this discussion to find any other rationales for McHale's minute allocation/ substitution methods. The minute allocations seem questionable: ATL: Bev (41M, -12), Terry (22M, -8), Johnson (9M, +5), Canaan (0M), Pap (17M, +1) POR: Bev (30M), Terry (14M), Schved (11M), Canaan/Pap (4M--blowout), MEM: Bev (35M, 5-12FG, +6), Terry (19M, 3-6FG, -2), Schved (7M, -2) Canaan/Pap (0M), Dorsey (10M) SAS (on a back to back): Bev (32M, 2-10FG, -7), Terry (17M, 0-4FG, +6), Canaan/Pap (0M) WAS: Bev(29M, 4-8FG, -21), Terry (19M, +20) Dorsey (19M, +23) Canaan/Pap (0M) Maybe this is too small of a sample size, but Canaan not getting PT deserves a discussion at least.
