For Starters, Dunleavy Needs to Use Bench More

December 01, 1990

It has come to my attention in watching the Lakers that Mike Dunleavy keeps the starters in the game much too long. In the game against Orlando at the Forum, the Lakers had a 20-point lead in the third quarter and Magic was still playing. Dunleavy didn't put the bench in until six minutes were left in the game. How will Brown, Campbell and the others get NBA experience if he plays them only rarely?

Magic Johnson needs to rest more so he can perform his magic during the playoffs.
