I think he should be coming off the bench if this continues within the next few games. I know Woodson would be risking Amar'e not being happy and distracted, but it's also a risk not to try it come Playoff time. They'd be finishing the game together too.
I'm not looking into that game much though. STAT actually shook off some of the rust in the second half.
As we saw last Sunday, if we face Miami it's going to be a lot different than the other teams to win with Melo being the only one to carry the load offensively, and it took missed free throws and overtime for us to beat Chicago, and we lost against them the next game without Rose.
I think we could have beaten Boston last year if it wasn't for Billups and Amar'e getting injured, and that team was nowhere near as deep as this one.
