Energy off the bench

After averaging 30 minutes a game over 377 regular-season starts in his first five seasons in the NBA, CHI's Kirk Hinrich now comes off the bench. In a Sun-Times article this morning, he talks about how he approaches his new role:

''The main thing is bring energy,'' he said. ''Just relax, play my game, use my instincts, and get in the mix. From the start of the game, just watching and see what's going on and try to apply what I saw from sitting once I get out there. I'm willing to do whatever. The main goal was just wanting to win."
