It’s to late in the season to be starting Nate Robinson at PG......the other starters are basically use-to Duhon's routine as a starter through the first 47 games. Duhon is a starter but not a Finisher on this team. The sudden change in the starting PG, and the energy guard off the bench could add more problems than it is worth. We do not want to take Duhon completely out of the rotation, but we do want to decrease his minutes of playing time drastically.
The nucleus of the trio of “Nate, Hughes, and Harrington” coming off the bench for 20 minutes or more of playing time would be a better recipe at this stage of the game.
Adding a 9<SUP>th</SUP> man (Hill or Douglas) for double digits playingtime depending on which is needed for the opposition would make the last 35 games of the season interesting to watch for team improvement and complimentary-teammates.
However, it all will really depend on the action-taken on the trading-deadline…
P.S. Being that head coach Dantoni refuse to use a 9-man rotation or a 8-man rotation throughout the first 47 games of the season….I would not trade any player during the trading-deadline b/c of the coach favoritism to certain players, especially to the quarterback of the team Duhon.
