“I told him in our exit meetings that his talent is in him, it’s all between his ears. I think he can be a really good player. He’s still relatively young and so we’re going to try to get him out of him.”
The most sensible choice is to call #11. I know, you thought about Glen Davis. I am referring to Sasha Pavlovic. The 6-foot-7 swingman has the most complete package of the three players: he can hit the outside shot and stretch the floor, he can drive to the hoop and most importantly, he is a very good defensive player. In a limited role, he is a very decent NBA player. With Ray struggling mightly on both ends we need Pavlovic to give some help to an equally struggling Pietrus.
Pavlovic is a big forward, strong and with 9 years of NBA experience. More importantly, if we manage to advance to the Eastern Finals we will need him to guard his ex teammate LeBron James. It´s been written elsewhere that Ainge´s motivation to resign Pavlovic this summer was to have backup help to guard big forwards as Anthony and more precisely James.
Doc needs to give some minutes to Sasha in order for him to get in some kind of basketball rhythm for the rest of the playoffs.
And if we just have one game left in the season, then it is time to play all your cards to try and prevail.
It´s Sasha time. Bohemian 5/25/2012 05:10:00 AM Tweet Edit
