Mark Jackson: ‘It’s The Best Lineup’
It really comes down to veteran guard Jarrett Jack or Harrison Barnes.
That’s the choice coach Mark Jackson is left with when he is deciding who will finish games for him. Point guard Stephen Curry and forward David Lee, the two best players, are locks. As is center Andrew Bogut, the team’s best defender.
And, in Jackson’s mind, so is off guard Klay Thompson, who has emerged as the Warriors’ best perimeter defender and a feared weapon on offense.
So that leaves Jackson choosing between Jack and Barnes. More times than not, he’s going with Jack.
“It’s the best lineup,” Jackson said of the four starters with Jack. “The point is you can only play five guys. I don’t know who I will end with, but chances are those will be the five guys on the floor.”
