    Whiteside had a 20 20 game last season against the Bulls, a triple double with blocks the season before.. I wonder if he has a huge game coming today.

    I do like a lot of players in that game besides him too. Basically like all of Miamis starting 5 so its hard to choose. For Chi Dunn, Lauri, Miro (at home!).

    Though Miami did play last night so I wonder if that comes into factor.

    Also if THJ isn’t playing b2b yet.. back to the B Easy train??

    I’m a lifelong Minnesotan, so I think I have a good excuse for not paying attention to the NBA yesterday afternoon.
    How come Beasley played 9 minutes in an OT game? Hurt? Hornaceked?

    Was hoping for a nice big tourney for mlk action on DK, Nope 2 water downed slates with 2 games missing (Memphis on MLK isnt even included in any slate?) SMH

    Going to try max entering the Fadeaway on FD tonight.

    Got my player pool down to 25. Highest exposure to RWB, Durant, Draymond, Ty Wallace, and Capela

  • upgradetoquestionable

    Hardaway Jr is back and went off. I think they moved Lee to the 3 for a chunk of those minutes. Think Beasley time might be coming to an end barring another injury.

    Forgot to quote Feekdog’s questions above.

    So far in my first LU i got Johnson, Dunn, Embiid, Saric…need to finish it

  • upgradetoquestionable

    Was lucky to get on Jarrett Jack the last few games. Not thinking he has the same performance in him but looking at him vs Tyler Johnson on FD. Both get good matchups. Who do I play in combination with Dinwiddie?

    Man I like the Raptors in their spot, and Miami in theirs. Early slate has some nice possiblities!

    EDIT: Brooklyn vs Knicks on a B2B are priced cheap on FD. First LU have Dinwiddie, Carroll and Crabbe.

    I wanna get back on Wright but waiting on the Lowry news of course. Maybe people will be off him since last game he didn’t do much and he also got cheaper so thats good

    Love Tyler Johnson today. 100% on him and Middleton, because 6600 for Middleton is way too cheap.

    Is there any news on who if anyone Pop is sitting today?

    Specific reason you think he’ll do any better than usual?

    Did he invent a time machine and go back to 2011? Because D Wade never gets a good run as his legs don’t work so well anymore.

  • scott33

    I think he’ll get close to 30 minutes like he did on Christmas when they played. Cavs need this win bad & they will switch up the rotation’s minutes to do so. I also think Crowder is a sleeper, they’ll need his toughness & defense tonight. I’m gonna play both. Crowder was over 6x the last time they played & Wade went for 7x his current price, & that was in a low scoring game. I think tonight’s total will be much higher than the last time they played.

    This is prolly the worst time for the Cavs to have to play the warriors. Wish they were back on track before this game. i can see wade getting run though you’re right on that since they have had a couple days of rest.

    I’ll play him in 1. If he shits the bed, I’ll PM you my PayPal, I’m gonna need that $4 back. LOL

    He’s old, I get that. But the guy can still play. Cavs need this game to boost their morale, & they’re gonna need their best players to log heavy minutes. He played 29 minutes the last time they played.

    Hehe deal brother. He sat out last game so he should be well rested. Only concern is the Warriors blowing them out but I think the Cavs can keep it competitive.

    Thank god full slate NBA is back. I didn’t really play since Friday since I was busy and it wasn’t really full slates. But NBA is so much easier than NFL and golf. I’m not terrible at NFL and golf, but NBA just seems way easier for me, and I think a large part of that is I actually watch/know NBA and played basketball when I was younger, which is not the case for NFL, golf, or MLB, where I just mainly use stats (and I rarely watch golf or MLB unless it’s a major or the playoffs).

    I wanna warn that Crowder’s last game was a complete luck based game. I watched that game during Christmas, and he was so lucky (I believe I even mentioned it on the thread that day as he was going off – Dirt would know he responded). Basically he had these weird deflections to him and he made some open 3s (which I’m not sure will be as open anymore). I had Crowder on my cash team that day (for full and afternoon slates) at like 5-10% overall owned and he was like 70% owned by me on GPPs, and I actually think that was a BAD decision in retrospect, even though he won me a GPP.

    https://rotogrinders.com/contest-results/51727460

    This is one of those cases where the result went really well for me, but if I had a re-do I don’t I think I choose Crowder at 70% because he literally got himself some open 3 looks he normally doesn’t make.

    With that said, you can give him a bit of a bump from playing at home and playing at a faster face, but keep in mind to take off some FPs from his open 3s that might not be open from his last game though, so maybe he still gets 5x, but don’t use that 26 FPs as an initial starting point.

    I did the Dinwiddie/Jack combo….Jack is averaging 36.65 fantasy points over the past 4 and has seemed to have taken over some of Frank’s minutes.

    The NY/BKN game should be much more high scoring then the MIA/CHI game.

    IMHO
