It seems clear Pau Gasol is going to be starter the rest of the season. I wonder how MDA is going to split everyone's minutes up. Either Pau or Dwight has to be in the game at all times. I'm thinking something like this:

 

1st Quarter

 

Nash: Comes out at the 3 minute mark (9 mins)

Kobe: Plays the whole 1st quarter (12 mins)

Pau: Comes out at the 7 minute mark and comes back in for D12 at the 3 minute mark. (8 mins)

Dwight: Comes out at the 3 minute mark (9mins).

 

2nd Quarter

 

Nash: Comes back in at the 7-8 minute mark.

Kobe: Comes back in at the 6-7 minute mark.

Pau: Comes out at 9 minute mark and back in at the 5 minute mark.

Dwight: Comes back in 9 minute mark.

 

Obviously, everyone's going to play more with Kobe out, but it's important our rotations are spot on once we make a playoff push.

I don't think Nash will come out so quickly (9:00), rather it will be Pau that comes out around (7:00) to give the rest of the quarter to Dwight. Pau will play the first 9 minutes of the second quarter, since they probably want to use him as the main offensive focal point with the bench.

With way D12 keeps getting stupid dumb 2 quick fouls to start gms = Pau needs to come off bench & not start. Things dont need to change with his return for the starters until he works his way back into playing shape.

USE PAU AS THE BACK-UP 5 MDA! Sorry that i yelled but i just don't get it. Why do we need to replace Earl with Pau? With Pau coming off the bench, we would have a solid bench. Yes they would be the worst defensive bench of play-offs but it's not like our bench is gonna play as a unit. Have Dwight with some of them and when Pau is in have Kobe and/or Metta along with other bench players. I think Pau coming off the bench was the first thing that we should have done in the begining of the season.

Dantonie is crazy

Is earl Clark going to be out of the rotation now?
Maybe Clark will see more mins at sf

99% of non-spainish people expected pau to come off the bench

KEVIN DING @KevinDing3h
Some soreness for @paugasol today in his right foot and he's seeing foot specialist tomorrow. Could be routine; no reason to panic yet.

I mean... Pau is going to start. D'Antoni has said that explicitly.

D'antoni actually said Pau would start and finish games "eventually"
