We didn't lose to the Warriors because of our bench. The starters got run off the floor at the end of games. Yes, you need scoring off the bench. But you don't need an "instant offense" player like Melo or Jamal Crawford or Lou Williams (all of whom have never been to the NBA Finals) who can't play defense. You need a versatile bench. Yes, the Warriors won tonight. But the team with Carmelo lost. We won't miss him this year.
