Starting Lineups:
PG: Chris Paul
SG: Morris Peterson
SF: Peja Stojakovic
PF: Melvin Ely (no David West according to Ivan)
C: Hilton Armstrong (Tyson's off according to Dave)

PG: Antonio Daniels
SG: DeShawn Stevenson
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: JaVale McGee (sez Ivan)

Let's hope we play better. Juan, Antawn and AD are all back, and I assume David West is playing for the Hornets.
