whoops, thanks! Blake's out too, so that makes it really difficult for D'Antoni to want to run. Duhon (who was his starting PG in NY) is really the only one they got. problem with him in NY was he wasn't the pure passer the coach needed to make the scheme work.
Pop can still try changing the 1-2-3 schemes, although it'd be unnecessary. Pop will probably go with a double team then with Parker and Leonard on opposite sides of each other trying to cheat for steals.
the irony of this game is a Pop team will probably (should anyway) run a D'Antoni team out of the gym tonight.
