Playoff Rotations; 8 or 9?

 This is the first year in a long time we aren't testing our talent and considering the draft at this point in the season!  Heck Yeah!  So now we get to discuss fun stuff like playoff match-ups, home court advantage. The best playoff teams start trimming their rotation and then set a 7,8 or 9 man rotation for the big dance.   I think the Blazers will go with either a 8 or 9 man rotation with the following distribution of minutes.  For the purpose of setting a standard lets assume that Martell returns and is somewhat limited by conditioning. This is based on Nate's tendencies and my own belief of what will happen.  Let me know what your theories are.  What will Nate do?  What would you do?

 

PG:    Blake 34 mins/ Roy  14 mins

SG;    Roy    27 mins/  Fernandez 15 mins/  Webster 6 mins

SF:     Batum  18 mins/   Travis 18 mins/  Martell  12 mins

PF:    LMA      40 mins/   Travis 8 mins 

C:     Pryz       25 mins/   Oden  23 mins 

 

Roy : 41 mins

LMA:  40 mins

Blake:  34 mins

Travis: 26 mins

Pryz:  25 mins

Oden: 23 mins

Martell:  18 mins

Batum: 18 mins

 

Rudy:  15 mins

 

For a total of nine in my projected rotation.
