    I feel bad for Curry. Lost everything tonight but Golden State is in shambles now, gonna get blown out every night moving forward

    Very unfortunate news for the Warriors. They should probably consider trying to flip DLo now, and possibly limit Draymond’s playing time for the rest of the year.

    They can’t flip D’angelo until December I think. When all free agent signings and acquisitions are eligible to be traded. So they have to keep playing him until then.

    He wasn’t a free agent signing. He was acquired in a trade.

    They still can’t trade him until that timeframe anyways. I meant to say all acquisitions. Free agents and from trades. D’angelo is gonna have to keep playing until it hits that December timeframe.

    No one makes trades until the trade deadline in February anyway.

    I hear ya. I was over the field on both. DFS is not a science. Luck is most definitely involved. Yet luck tends to even out over the course of the season or multiple seasons.

    On the bright side, I didn’t have any Towns or Embiid, so I guess it’s pretty even…at least tonight.

    its a bunch of luck with skill being picking the right plays. you cannot guarantee overtime, missed free throw, last minute turnover so luck is a big part of all dfs.

    no one wants DLo

  • SkateFiend

    Can no one from the Suns catch 3 alley oop passes from Baynes

  • ijustlosf

    Finished with 350 on FD even with Dedmon in my lineup. If only I had rearranged one or two things to leave in Baynes, but oh well

  • Brian7479

    Still placed but I debated between Baynes and Kaminsky and of course I took Kaminsky :’(

    But if you pick the right plays do you need a bunch of luck?

  • tmarohl

    Only lost 24 bucks on about $150 in entries on FD. I will take that with all the bad luck tonight. Curry, Dedman playing for four minutes, etc. Actually, also won 16 Santa Slam Tickets worth 12 bucks each so I guess I actually profited. DK had $61 worth of entries and made $36 bucks. All in all, not a bad night I guess.

    skill to pick the plays but luck to have the plays actually win you the money. basically pick good plays and hope they perform, then one game goes to ot and another the main stud gets hurt and your low value punt that you expected to play 20 minutes now plays 35 and all of that. theres no skill in that.

    I don’t think that is true. He is signed for 4 years at $29M per year. Somebody might have some expiring contracts they are looking to dump and could include some draft picks which the Warriors need. If he is with the Warriors after the trade deadline I would be completely shocked.

  • pn3

    3 duds on fd(barrett,harkless,harrell) and still min cash at least
    some warriors will be getting a chance to step up now going forward

    Only made 1 lineup on DK but made a small profit, lost $33 on $105 in entries on FD. Was up $30 until Curry got hurt and the Clippers got benched. Didnt even realize it was a front end of a B2B for them and that’s why Kawhi was sitting. Made quite a few mistakes actually having to rush. Tomorrow I’m not gonna run a train in the Santa slam satellite Im just gonna throw all my lineups in it since I just realized you only need to win a minimum of 3 each night to break even. Tonight I would of won 7

    Unfortunately, they don’t have that super sat for Santa Slam posted. They have a bunch of smaller contests for those tix. I managed to win 26 of them between last night and tonight.

    Nothing good has happened since they finished construction on that Chase Center.

  • superstars92

    It’s all good, on the bright side, now Warriors get to develop some of their young guys.

  • superstars92

    Remember the 1997 San Antonio Spurs when Robinson got hurt and they “threw” away their season. Worked out quite well.

    Think it’s cursed? I was thinking Curse of KD, but maybe you’re on to something…
