good point, Nick. i love the Brandon of old, but he's not back to where he should be yet. unfortunately, Nate seems to feel the need to have an eight-man rotation for the playoffs. it's my belief he needs to expand that to nine to include Patty. Patty is a change-of-tempo pg who would have done well in game one. my only other suggestion would be to have had Marcus in there. i understand he's not part of Nate's closing rotation, but through three quarters he had 18 rebounds. we certainly could have used his board work in there late in the game. imo, Nate needs to loosen on his own rotation guidelines to give us a better chance to win.
