I love the way we matchup with bumston...
-Jeffries can shut down Rondo
-Carmelo is younger, taller, stronger then Pierce...can tire out his old bones
-Stat beasted on bumston w/o Perkins, nothing to worry about with Perkins gone
The ideal way to match up with them would be this...
Rondo - Jeffries
Allen - Billups
Pierce - Anthony
Garnett - Fields
Kristic/Shaq - Stoudemire
OK i might be gettin ahead of myself by sayin Fields should guard garnett but its not like Garnett tries to overpower anybody. Hes a soft jumpshot shooter, all Fields has to do is smother him
When Jeffries is not in the game i think i would put fields on Rondo. I've seen Billups get torched many times against rondo in the past but slower players do slow him down. We gotta take notes from the Lakers, they beat boston by puttin kobe on rondo. Obviously im not comparing fields defense to kobes but they key to beating boston is slowing down rondo. the celtics lost the finals because of rondo
The Magic - well we coulda had them the other night. Cant let Jameer go crazy next time, but the team is still learning to defend together and i do believe they will do a better job next time of defending the pick n roll
The Bulls - Havent played them yet with both Noah and Boozer, looking forward to seeing how the matchups play out.
Miami - scares me the least of the elite teams. Until they put their ego's aside and become more complete offensive players, they're going nowhere. Wade and Lebron both need to shoot 1000 3pointers everyday this summer. Both of them offensively are more predictable then a slow white boxer like Kelly Pavlik was against Bernard Hopkins.
