Queta
Brito and Anderson have made a strong argument for starting.
Anderson, Bean, and Brito carried us in this North Texas game.

That is a darn good lineup, especially when we are hitting shots. Hopefully we see this line up soon!!!

I like Brito coming off the bench, great to have depth.

Sometimes the best five players should not be the starters.

Exactly. I don't see the starting five changing except for Queta, but when it's all said and done, Anderson and Brito are going to be playing more minutes that a couple of the present starters. Having them coming off the bench is such a bonus and I'm sure they will be in during crunch time.

I love seeing Anderson and Brito come off the bench. they provide so much spark and stability. They also get starter minutes anyways and are generally in the game late in the 2nd half. I honestly don't think it is that big of a deal who starts it who finishes it.

It is not who starts the game it is who is on the floor at crunch time.

If we keep starting slow, Anderson may need to start. Miller may do better off the bench, he may not press as much.

Last year we had Ainge starting for a good chunk of the year and once he stopped starting he never saw the floor again. Sometimes Smith uses starting positions like this to encourage players to work their butts off and earn that spot. How many games did we start in the hole last year because of Ainge starting?

Early and often.
