    It would be good to use the "Line UP Projection" tool to compare the benches of the top 5-6 teams. Other teams starters should be forced to play longer minutes. as I suggested in another post, Taking advantage of this when other teams are playing on second night of back to backs with the Raptors could be a big boost. On the flip side, it should halp the Raptors when they are on road trips or on a back-to-back sequence of their own.

    The Depth Trend

    I just wanted to start a new thread for no reason

    I'm just reflecting on the the playoff game we closed out the Wiz, that 4th quarter. Beal was dead tired, no lift in his jump shot, bent over and grabbing his shorts. That team was so broken. They had nothing left after going 6 games with the Raptors, particularly because there was no let up when the bench was out there.

    That has me thinking about the GSW problem. There is just no way to match these guys on star talent, but can they be beaten by a team that fields a really good starting unit and a great bench? Making it so that the starters have to be out there the whole time. We've witnessed Mike D'antoni's 7 second or less offence, LeBron and playing small ball, now are the Raptors on the verge of a "depth" trend?
