    All day yesterday I was trying to figure out why Shabazz was projected so high and why so many people were on him. I never could find the answer so I didn’t play him. What was the thought process going into playing Shabazz?

    He’s been playing well and getting a lot of minutes, thought the match up was good and he would do well vs the Rockets 2nd unit..

    LBJ ownership tonight could be at 50%. This is going to be a slugfest.

    Both teams are pretty good defensively. And with Leonard guarding him, I’d probably be more likely to play Kyrie or even Love, before LeBron.

  • jrrawlins

    I like Kyrie against tony PArker….thoughts?

  • TheRealJosh5

    LMA or Kevin Love tonight?

  • Joe_bro40

    good luck on the kawian island Lebron…

    Who’s liking Brooks tonight?

  • AdrianxBeatason

    If I play anyone in that game it’s Kyrie.

  • dailyfinancialsports

    I would much rather have Kawhi tonight. He hasn’t been getting the minutes and really hasn’t been playing that well but on a night like tonight where he is guaranteed 40 minutes and will be lower owned than Bron I think he is a great choice. I will probably pair him with Mirotic.

    For those who faded Horford last night, what were your reasons?

    Shout out to Al Horford nothing

    yeah he tanked big time

    I have no clue lol. As a Sixers fan I have no clue if he’ll guard Ish Smith or not because Ish is the only scorer we’ve got in the back court. Also no real threat at SG or SF.

    Boogie was on the slate.

    Kawhi down to 7,700 on FD. Sign mw up for a lu or 2 in a gpp and hope for that bust out game. Certainly capable of it.

    I thought he was a safe bet, but slightly overpriced. I decided if I was going to pay up that boogie and brook were better options.

    That game was a disaster and caught me by surprise

    For those who faded Horford last night, what were your reasons?

    He’s a 30-35pt guy priced like a 40+pt guy due to a hot streak. Pretty easy to avoid. Also, when you have Cousins in a dream matchup and all kinds of value available to fit him why play Horford? Aside from hoping for a Cousins ejection/injury.

    Hmm lets see. 3 out of his last 4 games 20+ points. 6 of his last 8 games 20+ pts. Double digit shot attempts in 5 of last 8.

    HOU bottom of the league v SF. High total game.

    All of that for a guy listed at 4k.

    Yea you are right – makes no sense. What could people have possible been thinking?

  • AdrianxBeatason

    Just noticed that Speights only played 6 mins last night but had 13 fantasy points… Did they just run small ball the whole time with iggy?

    I loved Boogies matchup against the suspect Pelicans defense and Horford’s usage is a lot lower than Boogies

    yea i had some exposure to him. It seems like HOU has been playing better defensively lately which the coach was stressing.. i thought zbo was gonna have a huge game 2 nights ago and in 33 mins he didnt do shit.

    good luck on the kawian island Lebron…

    I will give you that KW is good but LBJ is still better. Would you play KW over LBJ today? I have had difficulties playing KW and getting value back for his price

    Leonard is the best, but really, there isn’t anyone in the NBA that can handle LBJ or Westy on their hungry nights. They both have too much raw power.

    All good points and everything, but what was his upside really? I looked at the same stuff you looked at and thought he was already hitting his upside and had nowhere to go but down. I just don’t see him as a 35-40 guy(on that team, with that coach) and if he’s barely bumping 20 then 4k is too much with the other value on the board yesterday.

    Not trying to play smartest guy in the room here as I definitely had some worse picks than Bazz, but I was just wondering what I missed.
