The day before Game 2 of Toronto's first round series with Brooklyn there was yet more talk of the adjustments that were to come.

Perhaps the most interesting alteration speculated upon was that little-used forward Landry Fields could see some action going forward.

Toronto had all kinds of trouble dealing with the likes of Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson in the opener and Fields is a long, athletic defender who specializes in stopping opponents. Fields has played just 23 total minutes since playing for 25 minutes against Golden State on March 2nd (eight points and six rebounds in a win), but teammate Greivis Vasquez said Fields had a great practice on Monday and Fields is over a flu bug that had troubled him last week.
