Lineup that potentially worries me
We have not seen it in full yet because of Gordon's injury, but a lineup of Vasquez-Gordon-Davis-Anderson-Lopez really worries me defensively. Based on preseason, that seems like a lineup Monty will try to make work, which imo could lead to some headaches early in the year.
The thing that mostly worries me is overall speed and athleticism of the lineup. It gives us very good size, but lets be honest. We have discussed Vasquez's lack of speed or quickness, but I've heard very much about Lopez's increasing athleticism. I like what he has given us in first few games, but the guy doesn't look the least bit athletic. Looks like he struggles to move and to get off the ground. Anderson is another guy who isn't really athletic, and Davis has elite athleticism for a 4, but what about a 3? And how is his ability to guard on the perimeter? Not something I would trust just yet.
It's just a thought, but that seems to be a lineup that Monty will try to make successful, but to me we'll have a lot of trouble matching up.
