    We know that Alston wont be playing vs Denver and when Alston is not playing, we dont play well. Last time that we played denver, Billups killed us even with Alston. This time, we dont have him.

    If we start Brooks, Billups is going to eat us alive. He will post him up or just shoot in his face. Francis hasnt play till now, so I dont think that Adelman will even consider him. Brent Barry, he could be an option, but I think that T-Mac is better than him at running at the point. Barry should be in the bench. T-Mac is slow, but he can play point guard. Billups wont be able to kill him. Brooks could be the back-up for him.

    Starting line-up should be like this:
    PG: T-Mac
    SG: Ron Artest
    SF: Battier
    PF: Scola
    C: Yao

    Now that we have our three best sg/sf, we can do that line-up. If T-Mac doesnt work at the point, then, we can go to Brooks, but I know that wont work either. T-Mac is our best option at the point for that game.

    What do you guys think?

    we just might. brooks is too small to guard billups and will be a huge liablity on defense.

    we can put battier on billups (billups isn't as quick) and artest on melo. tracy can guard the SG.

    we'll see how creative adelman gets.

    Ya, defensively we can do that and offensively, T-Mac run the point. There s no way that we put Brooks on Billups.

    Yes Billups is not blazing quick, Battier will give him fit with his size. I can see that. But we have to wait and see what Adelman does, he maybe he will start Luther instead :eek:

    I have been saying he should start at PG for 2+ years.

    T-Mac for point forward!

    I seriously wouldn't mind this, as it doesn't look like he should be taking a lot of shots. We've seen in the last 2 games that he's still a fantastic passer. While his shot may be on and off, his court vision is always on.

    No way, I mean he can only play limited minutes right now. We will rely on him even more if he becomes the starting PG..

    Don't they start Anthony Carter though? You would play Brooks on Carter and McGrady or Artest on Billups. Then you would match Battier's minutes with JR Smith's.

    Pulled his hamstring. He's definitely a no-no for the Nuggets game and is day-to-day after that.

    I don't think Tmac wants to play PG role the whole game.
    I don't think Aldman wants that too.

    Bad knee = slowness, The game wont start this way, but it may end this way. Hopefullly our D can stop them so our offense can blow theem out early.

    We have yet to seen a T-Mac + Artest + Battier combo. And I think Denver will be a good observation for that. Only thing is Rafer is out. We never have all of our players healthy at the same time.

    So sad but true,so far this season,when one rocket comes back from the minor injury,another goes down and rest.

    I'd like to see T-mac/Artest/Batman combo.Hope it's gonna happen and won't let me down.I'm looking forward to it.
