I dunno. In a crucial road game like this one I feel a little uneasy introducing another guard into our rotation who hasn't played in 11 days. :LOL:
Chemistry is a strange thing on the hardwood. Ayo has got to be Ayo....and if not efficient or doing all the little things right, anyone becomes just another player. We will certainly find out by 5 pm CST.

Agreed; I was only 2/3 kidding there. Having him in there completely changes the chemistry and might also tend to inhibit younger players from stepping up. One thing I love about Ayo is how he can take over a game at the end and deliver the dagger. And that's also the thing that worries me. I want a couple other guys on the floor who also want the ball in that situation or, better yet, prevent us from getting in the position of needing a last-second J to win it.

But I'm not going to complain about having our POY back on the court, especially after the rest of the team figured out three different ways to win while he was out.

We all know injuries can affect the game mentally. Hopefully the facial injury doesn't prohibit Ayo's mentality of taking it to the bucket, which is his best weapon. I think they will play us physically. I think we play them physically. Make FTs at 75%+ and Ayo has 4+ layups, we win.
