    ESPN was saying that the Warriors and Pelicans (or maybe it was some other game) just set a new record for combined threes in a half or something like that.

    The amount of offense we’re seeing from the NBA is just ridiculous. I want to know how the Rockets scored 140 plus points. They let his B level teammates combine for 80 points? PJ Tucker scored 20 points? Apparently James Harden just did whatever he wanted with 5 fouls on him, even in OT.

    It was the warriors and pelicans game that beat the record. Shits just nyts cause I lost gpp by 2-4 points having only 3 players in that warriors game. Had the stack in the blowout game and somehow bubbled smh.

    Best night on Yahoo with 371…and I had it in the quarter
    I’ll take the 4th place for $15 but dang….

    Would have been $150 in the $10 but I typically do the same so I feel your pain.

  • shrilla

    Gonna take a few days off. I’m missing bad right now. I even felt real good about tonight’s lineup and just whiffed.

    No big win here, but it was actually a big win night for me nonetheless: https://i.imgur.com/f7waRxX.png

    Nice man. I had 8/10 lineups finish between 333-356. Got a 3x return, wish I would’ve maxed the Baller. Scared money don’t make money.

  • thetitanlb

    Can someone find the last time Vegas was off by 45 points on a game total that didn’t go to OT? That pelvis vs warriors game has to be the most by a mile man

    I really hate what this league has become. I’m sick and tired of these 140-130 games. You will never figure out the right GPP winning or cash game lineups with all these high scores. It wasn’t even like that back then because games were lower scoring and if you figured out which game was higher scoring, you were rewarded. Now, that isn’t even the case.

    I scored 332.8 on FD tonight to finally stop the bleeding I been having on FD. Too bad I am so fed up with FD that I only played in a few bucks. But got GPP cash which was what I couldn’t get for a long time. Really sad I lost money on Yahoo. Only scored 304 there with Colin Sexton ruining my night. He was $14 as my Utility spot and I originally had Austin Rivers at that spot. So I screwed myself over there. Some notable guys I faded in his price range were Crowder, Terrence Ross, Looney and Jamaychal Green. I thought about rostering all these guys. Just didn’t pull the trigger. Sad.

    I think the GPP contest payout structure has to change for the NBA. The top 25% should cash. The conservative bankroll strategy does not work in today’s NBA. Even if you play one lineup a day, you’ll eventually get wiped out.

    I’ve gone 4,5 days without cashing anything, which rarely happens in MLB. I don’t think it happened for me in NHL when I played that for about a month.

    The sports media marvel at the western conference’s packed standings. It actually doesn’t mean the conference has 8 title contenders. It’s more like they have a bunch of teams who trade baskets for a living. You score a lot, get scored on a lot, and everyone has 28 and 14 ish records.

    Can anyone tell me what 376.6 would have won in the 7.77 shot on FD?

    That’s what I was gonna post. The NBA is just becoming the OK corral. Any random night you get a nuts ass game that can ruin everything

    35th for $150

    Forget complaining about the NBA regarding DFS, instead just complain about the game itself without regard to gambling.
    Its horrendous when a player dribbles up (Durant) and pops a 3 instead of driving to the basket. Of course watching the Pistons every night gets boring watching Griffin back to the basket dribble dribble dribble.

    But again I think the NBA has gone soft and the players take their checks, so “who cares man”

    There are some teams who play defense and no how to overcome deficits without hurling 3’s and Boston stands out as one of those since they play team basketball

    Go Toronto

    Stick to the Dribbler & Block unless you’re maxing out. Crazy that you won twice as much in the $2 SE than you would’ve in the $7.77 but that’s FD for ya.

    bruh Cashline. on Yahoo is at 320 haha cashed in 5/7 once again didn’t put my best lineup in the RG league I’m getting smoked there lol…

    Shooting and making 3s is not soft.

    It’s the correct way to play mathematically.

    At this point, they might have to trot out the 4 point line, though.

  • tmarohl

    Made a little on FD, DK and Yahoo tonight. Probably about a $150 profit. I’ll take it after a cold streak.

    Nice bro, I saw you up there in the $1 GPP. I actually managed to put one of my better lineups into our league for a change, that’s my proudest accomplishment of the night lol.

    The one lineup I fade Harden in, against you. I had like 368 in my Harden lines.

  • tmarohl

    Don’t look now, but guess who no one is talking about with the best record in the NBA?

    They keep tightening the rules. Refs will call a foul if you land in the 3 pt shooter’s “landing circle” even if you only cause air to breeze their jersey and dont even touch them.

    All kinds of cheap hand checks and ticky tack offensive player initiated bumps lead to free throws. There’s no room for hard battles anymore.

  • eatmyturf23

    I actually think the 3 point line should disappear. It’s an easy make for pros. I do agree it’s mathematically sound otherwise.
