Not sure I understand this. Most coaches bench players to light a fire under their butt but we are gonna "reward" Manu by putting him in the starting lineup. I don't think that is the answer.
It's 2-2. No reason to panic just yet. Very few teams have swept the middle three games of the Finals. Limit TO's (<10), win the 50/50 ball battle, play solid defense and win the rebound battle and you can win games.
