    Yeah, I dunno why people are wary about Morris. He’s their 6th to 7th man usually and they’re down 3 guys, including the guy in front of him and next to him on the depth chart. He can get it done in a variety of ways, and GS is pretttttty bad at defending everyone. Is this like a 360 dunk? Maybe not. But he’s the best value play today, and that includes MPJ.

    Morris is fine but I don’t generally play up to four players on the same team and he is my fourth favorite Nuggets player tonight. I’ll play some

    Especially given how malone coaches (in which his rotations are actually designed to get them ready for the playoffs even when he tinkers)… he’s not just going to be like “alright PJ dozier, you get all the run today!” Or at least, I doubt it.

  • kdsdawg

    I am playing a couple of Denver guys but can’t bring myself to run it back with anybody from GS. Seems Lee had cooled down before missing couple of games. Russell is all over the place.

  • monarch

    I think it could be a Kadeem Allen spot. Elf is NY’s only good perimeter defender if Frank is out and will likely be on Booker. Elf had five fouls and may or may not get erected again tonight. Plenty of paths for Allen to get into the game and do some stuff

  • monarch

    Looks like Franky and Morris are in tonight though

    Although these teams do not play this way I can see the Knicks-Suns going small tonight with Morris/Bridges at the four and additional guards getting onto the floor. Depends on how the Suns depend to match up but the total keeps climbing

    Marcus Morris and Frank Ntilikina looked good in shootaround, per Mike Miller. Knicks are waiting to hear from medical staff before they’re cleared to play tonight. Dennis Smith Jr. is out.

    I’m sorry, but Frank has never looked good.

    Triple Double Watch

    • Pat Bev . . . . . . came close in 2 of last 3 games
    • Markelle Fultz . got his 1st last night sans Fournier
    • Lonzo Ball. . . . . 1 assist short in last 2 games
    • PJ Dozier……….. if only he saw 40 mins…….ain’t happening

    Only Fultz is projected w/ double digit ownership

    it’s interesting, seems sans PG13, patBev has focused more on scoring & less on Defense

    I’ve been playing Bev the last couple of times, I wouldn’t say its focusing on scoring and less defense, but he acts as a primary play maker with PG13 off the floor, which is why he gets way more assists. Clippers also play small for long stretches with Harrell, so when Bev is aggressive and going after rebounds and he can get to 10 pretty easily. The points are not really increasing that much though, it’s just the peripherals being up.

    Booker was having ceiling games down the stretch last season without Oubre and will fly under the radar

    I like Booker a bit, but they didn’t have Rubio either.

  • jv21

    Any chance Beverly makes it really hard on Fultz after this what Fultz did yesterday? Beverly feels like the type to bring someone down when they are in the spotlight.

    I don’t really see him as flying under the radar, particularly.

    I plan on it eventually.

  • RWilder

    So Marcus Morris is playing? I think he could be an interesting pivot off of Barton and Ingles, who I imagine a lot of people will have. Morris torched the Suns last game and people might be off of him.

    What are your thoughts guys?
