Trey Burke and Frank Ntilikina will compose the starting backcourt in Sunday's game.
As expected after Jeff Hornacek hinted as much earlier in the day. He also seemed to suggest that the higher-ups were the ones who wanted Emmanuel Mudiay to start following his acquisition, which isn't all that surprising. Burke looks like an add in 12-team leagues for his scoring, threes and assists of late though his shooting is screaming for some big regression. Ntilikina is more of a 14-team play at the moment but has better upside for his potential in threes, assists and steals. We'll be able to forecast a little more accurately after we see how the minutes get doled out tonight. No matter what happens, Mudiay and Courtney Lee are droppable.
