Coach Brown Breakdown

With Dion Waiters still out with a right wrist injury, Brown continues to tweak his bench rotation. Some of the lineups he puts together are a bit head scratching, and with his sixth-man out, he’s going to continue to struggle finding the five he wants with Irving on the bench. He better figure it out soon, before Dan Gilbert takes action.
