Sits and Starts
Sit Nene Hilario: he is still nursing an injury and if he were to play would be matched up against Anderson Varejao on the road and then Kevin Garnett at home both without John Wall to feed him the ball.
Start Damian Lillard: gets Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook and Jeremy Lin as his opposing PGs. He should have no problems scoring 20+ in each of these contests with lots of steals.
Sit Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: tough schedule aside, his shot is not falling and will struggle in his first go round against NBA defenses.
Start Manu Ginobili/Danny Green/Kawhi Leonard: Spurs should score 330+ pts this week and these three figure to be involved in almost of all of it.
Sit Andrew Bynum: Likely to miss the entire week as he is still feeling pain in his knee. Will see limited minutes if he does play.
Start Richard Hamilton: it doesn’t get much easier than Marcus Thornton, Dion Waiters and the gimpy Eric Gordon/Austin Rivers. In addition to points, will get plenty of assists as well as those three teams have really struggled with their perimeter defense.
Sit DeMarcus Cousins: will be absolutely exhausted having duel to with Joakim Noah, Nikola Pekovic and Roy Hibbert on the road.
Start Jason Terry: he is coming off an excellent pre-season and gets matched up against Ray Allen, Monta Ellis and Bradley Beal/Jordan Crawford.
Sit Rudy Gay: only two games and in first will be matched up against Metta World Peace. Brandon Rush is no sieve either.
Start Carlos Delfino: may start but regardless will get plenty of opportunities to score and rebound against the weak second units of @DET, @ATL and POR.
