Pau Gasol To Start Against Raptors

Mike D'Antoni suggested that he may bring Pau Gasol off the bench, which Pau Gasol didn't want to do, and D'antoni has reversed course.

Pau Gasol will start todays game in Toronto, sending Earl Clark back to the bench. You have to assume Clark will have to fight over minutes with Antawn Jamison.

Gasol is having a sub par year that has been plagued with injuries. Maybe its time he embraces the sixth man role (as Lamar Odom did) and steps up to lead the second team. Not having Howard on the floor will give him the post position he has been wanting.

But for now its time for Pau to show and prove he deserves his starting and can be effective with Howard on the floor.
