    Telling that he references “Synergy info”. I guess I never thought he didn’t, but the evidence that he does indeed use stats in that manner is satisfying for me to know.

    I wonder since Mitch isn’t starting if they will slide glenn to the 4 and do a Spike/walton caris Nik Glenn Morgan lineup. Or they could Have both morgan and horford starting.. I doubt they would put donnal in that spot even though he can stretch the floor

      It’s interesting that he said Nik/Caris at the two and Zak or Glenn at the three, and didn’t include Nik or Caris at that three spot. I had thought Caris and Nik could potentially play the two and three, especially with Mitch out, but that may not be the case.
