    Towards the end of the season, he looked like he was slowing down, and who can blame him after carrying the team himself for a month.

    Maybe more reason for them to want to take it easy on Russ? Why wear him down too?

  • millerto

    Let me add to that. This is not Scott Brooks anymore, so nobody knows for sure. But it seems likelier that McGary would start than Kanter, or possibly start Morrow? I do expect Waiters and Kanter to come in earlier and play more minutes.

    It’s 7-10 days and the guy is an absolute alien. No one will be worried about him wearing down in a week.

    You are trying really hard to talk people off Westy. I don’t think anybody here is buying it. Nice try though.

  • TeamTwerk

    Why is minn ranked 1st defensively against SF on DK? Does anyone actually believe they are top tier against the position? They haven’t played any games this season against teams with the top tier small forwards.

    I think he’s trying to talk himself into it more than anything.

    You just answered your question. The rankings are based on what has happened, not what might happen.

    Carmichael Dave @CarmichaelDave
    Rudy Gay DOUBTFUL with gastroenteritis. Hits keep coming

    AKA the Shits.

  • dunbarnation

    All I will say is this.. I have lineups with Westbrook and lineups without Westbrook.. I am excited with both types of lineups. Although it is going to be a HIGH order, it is possible to get the highest score tonight without Westbrook nor anyone above $10,000.

    zaza or plumlee??

    I would say Zaza. Lakers have been getting owned by opposing Cs.

  • keephustlincuz

    I have grant in 3 lineups. Good idea or bad?

  • TeamTwerk

    Maybe Bjelica is really good at D. I have no idea. He has been playing most of the SF minutes, right?

  • Agent47

    @crazylox2001 said...

    Faried or Ibaka

    I’m debating between him, Ibaka, and Dirk for my UTIL spot on DK. Got $6500 left and love all of their matchups. Gonna be a tough call for me. Probably leaning towards Faried right now, but I think it’s a toss-up. I don’t think either one will hurt you.

    That is half of it, the other half is that Tayshaun Prince usually starts and Wiggins plays the 3 a good portion of the rest of the game, both are really really solid defenders.

    Let me EDIT this by saying, the DvP should be no reason to fade George or Miles, and if Rubio sits …. the whole defense is garbage anyways

    maybe. but my lineup is way too chalky with him in it.

    Hood out
    Burks is a huge play

    Thanks. I’m kinda interested in George but was worried about that DvP. Forgot Tayshaun was on that team and getting minutes. Yeah not worried about him.

    Anyone playing McConnell tonight?

    Evan turner off the bench but should still see 30+ minutes i would think.

  • havs99

    fournier or thornton

  • gde684

    How many minutes wil Seth curry take from rondo? Don’t like him nearly as much at 35 minutes

  • keephustlincuz

    Burks and Casspi …. my sneaky plays are no longer sneaky. Fuckers.

    The reason the Warriors are so successful is because they get everyone involved. When you have a team like the Thunder who basically just let 2 guys run everything, nobody else is used to actually being involved when they need to be. Someone has to step up. Half of those assists that went to Durant are going to go to who? Ibaka? McGary? Waiters? Good luck getting assists with guys who can’t shoot.

    If you can stop Westbrook you stop the whole team. I see triple and double teams all night long.

    Youre dumb

    There is a pretty huge price mismatch on him between FD and DK. 6k FD and 4900 DK.
