You will find that Williams and BRich accomplished more than Ellington and Smith, and they did it in less than half the minutes. Hence the mystery as to why Smith and Ellington are playing so much more.
Ellington has to play point guard as we have no other option to effective run the point. Bruce is a good defender because he is so quick. He also has the ability to create plays on the offensive side with his quicks and he is easily the best ball handler on the team.
I do agree though that BRich and Williams should have been paired with him. Eric Smith simply is not a good player. He doesn't bring much to the court honestly. He is no offensive threat and on defense he is not quick enough and always gets beat off the dribble.
