Still not seeing it

Still can't figure out why Spo continues to leave Carlos Arroyo out there with this group. Doug Collins is clearly instructing his team to help or flat-out double off Arroyo, and he's not making the Sixers pay (two points, one assist, two turnovers at halftime).

And yet, James Jones goes off for four three-pointers in the first half. If he starts, there's no way anyone can double off him. No, James Jones isn't a great defensive player, but it's not as if Arroyo is shutting down anyone. In this game, for example, Jones could guard Kapono, Wade can handle Holiday and LeBron guards Iguodala.

Just don't get the need for a "true" point guard who doesn't shoot threes and is the third best "point guard" on the floor.
