    Powell immediately followed that up beauty by tossing the ball out of bounds on the next end-of-quarter opportunity (3Q), and topped it off by fouling the 3pt shooter 40 feet from the basket with less than a second left to gift the Knicks 3 points. Holy moly. Nurse has a long-ass leash, man.
    There's a reason why FVV plays all the time and guys like Powell go in and out of the lineup and you've just illustrated it perfectly.

    Norm should know the playbook well. He can hit open 3's. A pretty good defender and proven playoff performer. But he has no IQ. I've watched a lot of basketball.. and I've never seen anyone get called for a travel call as they were inbounding the ball. WTF?

    I'm having a hard time seeing Powell lose his minutes with how much use he's been getting lately, but who knows. My ideal would also be the 8 man KL/DG/KL/PS/MG/FVV/SI/OG rotation, but I expect we'll be getting a bunch of Lin and Powell anyway.
    OG, Powell and Lin will all get looks, especially in the first round, and, subject to matchups, I think performance will dictate how much any one of them plays. OG (because of his size) and Lin (because of his ball handling and playmaking ability) likely have the inside track on those extra minutes. Powell's issue is that he is still not dependable enough.

    Yeah, still Gasol over Ibaka. Have been hoping to see even more from Gasol than we have, but he's got the potential to make all 5 guys better in a way that Serge just doesn't. Serge just needs to have good games off the bench, he's hit or miss there sometimes.

    Based on how they've played so far this season would you still want Gasol starting, and not Ibaka?
    Ibaka has not been substantially better. They've both been just average since the trade.

    ibaka has been a better individual scorer, but the ball sticks. We have had the BEST 3 pts % in the league since gasol showed up and that is not coincidence. The 5 man game was absolutely gorgeous last night.

    in short, I like ibaka bringing scoring punch off the bench and getting some chemistry with fred. Gasols bbiq is needed
