    I love what this does.

    X is much more engaged as a starter than as a 6th man. We'll get a lot more production from him now and we don't lose anything from Chen (he's used to the bench role).

    We now have a starting 5 with every single guy expected to score in double digits. I'm very happy about this.

    Now we just have to figure out what the new rotations look like and avoid having too many starters getting rest at the same time.

    I agree. He struggles when he is the only offensive option but plays great with the other offensive starters. Needs some work on his defense. Maybe have ski come off the bench again, he will shoot no matter who is on the floor with him.

    Chen played awesome from the bench, he should have be ESPN's player of the regardless of terrible refs in zona.

    Great swap for both Chen and X. Both were much better tonight and would like to see this line up continue

    Agreed. Good to see tad pull out a strategic move based on the opposing team's strength. Dude can coach AND call a game...

    I've been waiting for him to be the starter. Chen brings energy off the bench.
