Help defense on King James

Posted By Mike Petraglia On February 25, 2010 @ 8:57 pm In General | No Comments

Doc Rivers [1] hinted before Thursday’s game with Cleveland that he planned to employ several different defensive strategies on LeBron James [2], including using one of his best big defenders on the big guard.

With Paul Pierce [3] out for the second straight game with a sprained thumb and Marquis Daniels [4] weakened with flu-like symptoms, Rivers was forced to get creative to come up with ways to defend the 6-8 swingman.

Tony [Allen [5]]is the other guy right now, and then Marcus [Landry] maybe, Scal maybe, maybe Kevin [Garnett [6]],” Rivers said. “We’ll find that out. We don’t know what Marquis can give us so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
