For the Lakers, Sasha Vujacic provides scoring off the bench, while Jordan Farmar can spell Fisher at the point. Luke Walton, son of Bill, is a jack-of-all trades. For the Celtics, James Posey is one of the league's best sixth men, but the bench drops off after that. Doc Rivers has lost faith in both of his backup point guards, Sam Cassell and Eddie House. P.J. Brown is a solid veteran big man, but Rivers hasn't gone much deeper into his bench of late.
