I think Brad will think going back to the Baynes starting unit, but we'll see. Morris or Tatum to the bench.
The problem is that Tatum has started every game of his career and Brad won’t want to mess with his psyche now. Morris is doing what he was brought here to do.
So with that said, I expect the same starting lineup even if it means a quick sub of Baynes in.
The Cavs other starting four produced just 6 points in that first quarter. I do not expect that many more 21-point quarters from LeBron. Stay at home on everyone else and limit their offensive rebounds.
Valid point, just the same, Stevens himself brought up that the big Cavs unit gave them trouble so he had to make a quick sub for Baynes. Which is the idea you present. So the question then becomes, if he already knows it's an issue... do you wait for it to become a problem again or you address it from the get go?
Brown was guarding LeBron through much of the first quarter as it was. And he did so well (though LeBron was Supernova), but I wouldn't want to risk Brown getting on foul trouble early.
So it's presenting us with some issues. We're bringing Morris for LeBron yet don't use him on him because of the opposing unit change... so why start him at all? But if you go big, you can indeed put him on LeBron, but that means having to make a decision between him and Tatum.
We'll see I guess.
