    I'm still trying to understand the fundamentals of basketball,
    so I'd appreciate any help!

    1) Does there have to be two point guards playing in a game?
    2) Do all NBA teams utilize two point guards?

    Thank you.

    I see u chose an appropriate offense

    1. No, very few teams play 2 point guards in their starting lineup. Theres a point guard and a shooting guard. The point guard is usually about 6'2 or 6'3, handles the ball well and passes well. The shooting guard is usually 6'5 or 6'6, does some ball handling and passing but usually does more scoring then the point guard.

    2. No but some do. The knicks for example have played both Lin and Baron Davis at the same time. The Clippers go with 2 point guards alot

    1. you don't need two point guards on the floor, though the game may come more organized if a team is using 2 point guards. Having 2 point guards has it's advantages and disadvantages.

    2. No all team don't utilize 2 point guards, but the clippers & wolves have done it this season and have had success.

    I'll toss some green rep your way, not many people would have the balls to come on a knicks board asking to learn about basketball so kudos to you.

    very rarely will you see two point guards on the floor because that would result in a noticeably smaller line up.

    On the plus side, having two "point guards" can increase ball movement and penetration that a "shooting guard" type player might not have the skills to do.

    First of all, thank you all for your responses and help!
    I will watch the video tutorial, Almost_Famous. And,
    thank you for the kudos. But, I figured what the heck
    because this is basically anonymous.

    AND, I guess I'm confused so my question might not have
    been clear, or I'm not understanding your answers because
    of my confusion.However, my opinion, and from what I see
    of his stats, Lin plays much better when he plays longer.

    So, I think Woodson should allow him to be the only point guard.
    Unless, of course, he needs to go to the bench.

    I'm sure most of you will disagree after last night's game, but
    I feel he will learn to be more self-confident if he goes through
    the humps in the game. And, because I think he plays better
    under pressure.

    Why should Lin be given this advantage? Because in my opinion
    he has the right stuff to become a great point guard for the Knicks.

    And, I think having both him and Davis will only water down both
    of their talents.

    So, don't most of the teams, like the Heat and Dallas only have
    one point guard play the "entire"game?

    And, couldn't the Knicks do the same? Or, perhaps it's too early for Woodson to do that.

    Well Lin and Baron very rarely play together.
