(I got it from the Spyder feed in the sidebar).

Basically, Blake and Frye to the first unit.

Reasons: Jack in a slump, which contributes to slow starts, 2nd unit defensively undersized, Portland showed fire in the Houston game with Web, Roy, L-Train, Frye, and Blake on the floor.

I see the reasoning completely, but I have one concern: Aldridge's fouls.  He's been great so far, but playing Yao hamstrung him.  Will not having the D shored up by Joel cause him to commit more fouls?  

This definitely puts the offensive onus on Outlaw in the 2nd unit.
