The Sixers will wait to determine their starting center until they see who the Mavs will start at the five on Friday.
Interesting. If Dallas goes small and starts Dirk Nowitzki, Brett Brown will call on Richaun Holmes. If the Mavs go big it’ll be Jahlil Okafor. It goes to show how close Holmes and Okafor really are in the rotation – Okafor’s defensive limitations will hold him back from guaranteed big minutes. That, plus Holmes’ fun stat set, is why we’ve been touting RH as the preferred guy to own in the wake of the Nerlens Noel trade. Owners will have to stay tuned for the lineup decision and should keep this scenario in mind going forward.
