    any thoughts on the early slate?

    You worried about the back to back 3 game in 4 days with Travel?

    Luka not historically good in these situations.

    I almost want to take the main slate off, as Luka against Toronto, is normally close to an all in for me. Yet he’s played a lot of hoops recently, huge minutes, and I don’t like that I want to fade him, or will be obliged to play him, just in case.

    Luka looked fatigued yesterday almost the whole game but especially in the 4th, but given his performance it wasn’t a shocker. He’s 21 though so I’m not going to suggest he can’t perform in a B2B.

    Regarding the slate as a whole…DAL and HOU is going to have guys coming back tonight, don’t count on extreme value from those games to build around. There’s no obvious path to a stud and scrub unless unexpected news drops elevating near min salary replacement starters. The best value on the main slate I see so far is from the CHI bench.

    Cavs are trading or releasing Kevin Porter Jr

    When they give your locker away it’s never a good sign.

    Here’s a tip for anyone playing the 12pm showdown: put Quickley in the cpt spot. It opens up everything. You can thank me later!

    Im going cheap with Quickley and Anthony as my PGs on FD

  • Supersharpie

    Pick one:

    Capela or Kanter for GPP on FD

    If you go by baseline projections it’s not optimal. Yet if Quickley scores over 30 DK, then it works well.

    No guarantee today of course, but last 3 of 29,40,33 put me on that path.

  • Dicklington

    Would anybody like to take a stab at minutes projections for Minny 4 and 5’s. How will minutes be distributed between Reid, Davis, Vanderbilt, etc?

    Harden wont break another assist record, but will he smash?

    Harden broke no assist records. The only “record” was first to have 30 point triple double in a team debut.
    Two different Nets have gone over 20 assists, anyone that implied 14 assists was a record was way off.

    Almost forgot FD locked at 9am this morning – got stuck with MRob in one lineup because of it =/

    This is pretty funny if true:

    The Cavaliers are planning to release or trade Kevin Porter Jr. after an outburst in the locker room.

    Porter Jr., who has yet to play this season with what the Cavaliers are calling personal reasons, “grew angry” when he walked into the locker room to find that they gave his locker to Taurean Prince. The second-year guard began yelling and threw food, and when GM Koby Altman tried to confront him, KPJ remained “combative.” The Cavaliers spent the weekend trying to trade him with no luck so far. He’s a very talented player, but the off-court issues continue to hold him back.

    Poor guy.

    I mean who wouldn’t start throwing food and screaming if Taurean Prince took your locker.

    I think Njsum meant to say record assists in a debut. But it came off as all time Nets assist leader in a game.

    It confused me as well, as I knew Jkidd probably had multiple 20 assist games.

    I’m just not sure if his run is locked In yet, or if it’s dependent on how others are playing and game script.

    I have him in 4/5 lineups, yet not at captain.

    Yeah I clarified a few posts later 👍

    “Yes, in debut, Kidd had more than 14 assists multiple times”

    Is it just me or does KPJ find his way onto the Clippers some kind of way?

    It’s like when Mickey gave away Rocky’s locker in Rocky I. Rocky wasn’t too happy.

    Didn’t know it came from NJ .. just saw it mentioned today and the other day by others without the context

    Kidd hit 25 and 20 as a Mav but the crazy thing is Deron effin’ Williams hit 20 twice as a Net!
    Magic (32) and Stockton (38) are on a whole other level with 20 assist games

    How come? Because he went to USC?

    Just first team that came to mind. They have Kennard but KPJ a little more dynamic scorer, potential Lou Williams replacement. The USC thing probably factored in as well.

  • jdtrey

    What’s wrong with the name Bryan? I just realized KPJ’s first name is Bryan. I know some people go by their middle names but it’s usually when their first name is Eugene or some shit, not Bryan. I wonder if his dad goes by Kevin too, rather funny that he calls himself Kevin Porter Jr when he’s actually Bryan Porter Jr..

    What?! As a Bryan myself I’m somewhat offended.
