Chris Paul, JJ Redick, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are definitely starting for the Clippers this season, that much is for sure. But who will be the fifth starter? Paul Pierce? Wes Johnson? Lance Stephenson?
Head coach Doc Rivers has yet to make a firm decision on who starts at small forward, but it sounds like he’d “prefer” to keep Stephenson in a bench role, to ignite the second unit.
From Dan Woike of the Orange County Register:
Doc Rivers again said that Paul Pierce, Wes Johnson or Lance Stephenson could start at SF, but he'd "prefer" to keep Lance with bench group
