Quick Thoughts:
I’m wondering if Shaun Livinston sees  a bit more action tonight, with the Wizards boasting a strong trio of point guards in John Wall, Kirk Hinrich and Gilbert Arenas.  Early returns on Shaun providing strong defense at the backup PG spot are good – the team’s defensive efficiency with Shaun on the floor – 96.4 (110.0 with him on the bench) and he is holding his opponent to a PER of 3.60 so far.  Yeah, it won’t hold up for the course of the season – but it’s promising.
