really wish Gomes could of at least been capable of handling the starting role in limited mins we need Mo to step up big for bench scoring.

I was thinking it may be better to start Simmons and bring NY off the bench. But Vinny know's better than all of us.

Let's hope this does not mess up his rhythm. He has been playing great as of late. I am curious to see him try to D up Rudy Gay too. Lets go Clippers!!!

That was my worry about starting Young. That leaves our "hustle" bench as a skeleton crew. I still think Gomes could have helped in the starting unit. Mind you, in limited minutes. I trust Gomes playing Gay over Simmons. Simmons loves to foul when he can't keep up. This better work out cause Young tends suck when he starts.

I rather he come off the bench but I guess its worth a shot being up 1-0. Rudy Gay loves to shoot over smaller guys and heres hoping he doesnt get hot early if he does Simmons or Gomes will have to do a job...

And I would rather Gay have like 20 - 30 points as opposed to Zach Randolph or Gasol...if Gay gets 30 I dont think they win

I agree that Simmons should start so that Nick Young can still come off the bench to provide some much needed bench scoring.

Hopefully nick takes this as opportunity and show ppl he should be a starter and play well in offense and defense

Was just on Ralph's FB, and saw that he responded to someone's comment about the starting lineup...

Hmmmmm... My guess is either NY or DJ isn't starting.

Probably means Simmons is starting, makes sense as he has the size to guard Gay and ability to hit open shots. Young off the bench is MUCH better than Young starting, as we've seen in the few games he's started for us.

Make no mistake though, Young is going to get 30 min or more a game with Butler out, so whoever starts isn't a huge deal in the overall rotation.

Simmons is super slow though.

I wouldn't be surprised if DJ got benched.

Gomes is about 30% accurate in shoot around. Could it be he's done something we don't know about. It's odd for a guy to get zero minutes even at garbage time.

We have a 10 man rotation which is usual for the PO's

Haha, nice. Was thinking about how to express that quote while giving you some privacy. Love how Ralph is constantly communicating with fans on FB.
