It's safe to say that the Kings can definitely beat the Sonics in Sactown. A win provides momentum going into Texas or Arizona. But rest for the mega-minutes guys might be more important - Bibby needs to be fresh so Parker can't slice and dice as easily as he wants to, Artest is going to have his hands full with Balki and Fin, Brad will have to be ON for the Kings to win the series.
So, do you give Jason Hart and Vitaly Potapenko a start? Does Francisco get in before the fourth quarter? Or do you give your starters 30-32 minutes to get some burn before the long layoff?
