    He's moody as a starter or as a reserve. It's a constant struggle to keep him engaged, no matter his role. That's not a good quality in a starter deep in the playoffs. You want to roll with guys you know will produce.

    So, you're saying Moe was tired in the first half as a starter, but totally rejuvenated in the second half as a reserve? Makes perfect sense.

    We will have to agree to disagree. disruption is disruption and can have waves. Hood isn't a for sure and I stand my ground that Stotts wanted hark and Aminus D with the starting unit more than he wanted it with the bench.
    Its not that I don't get your reasons why, I just think the timing is not good and its not a sure bet to be a better thing. It could just as easily have a negative impact, and Id prefer to ride what got us here. Matchups are matchups and in a series you have to adjust, like Stotts did. But this is a new matchup and I think you go back to square one.

    That's 100% what coaching is, or should be when done well. You make the difficult decisions based on the best likelihood of a positive outcome. Stottts coaches out of fear of being second guessed.
