Doc Needs To Get This Idea Out Of His Head

Doc Rivers talking about things to try out in the pre-season:

You know, the one thing we'll have to find out in the preseason ... is Scal at the three.  You know, how much he can play threes, who he can guard.  You know, if there's a great three, can you put Scal on the two and let Marquis guard the three if we're going with five subs at the same time . . .?

This is one plan I hope we absolutely do not see in the regular season.  There's absolutely no need to play five man bench units; this isn't hockey.  I like Scal, and think he plays good defense on most power forwards and on some threes.  However, the idea of him guarding shooting guards, if even for a few minutes, is scary to me.
