    Is this not a great spot for ABC? Don’t recall seeing him mentioned at all yet. He seems like the guy to pay up for tonight.

  • DirkDigglerz

    Russ is in? damnnn gonna change my lineups now.. I had it all pencilled in earlier….

  • 866

    Can’t believe Westbrook is gonna be in. ALL reports said OUT.

    Ture. But Dwight Powell is out too. Should open the door to at least 15-20 minutes bare minimum.

    Ok, I didn’t see Powell is out. That makes Maxi a bit more intriguing. Still iffy though but he’s in play.

    Pace=possessions. If the Pels get up and down faster and take shots quicker, this generates more possessions for SA. While if SA gets in half-court sets and takes their time it slows things down and equates to less possessions for NO. So yes, it’s both. Some say home teams have a better time dictating pace though. Just depends.

    I tend to think the better team controls the pace tbh.

    I have a hard time seeing Utah as only a 3.5 point favorite tonight without Oladipo. They struggled against the Hawks last game without Oladipo. Feels like a blowout coming.

    He pops up as the best big guy at a per dollar basis for me, I don’t know if there’s something written between the lines that makes him less of a play

    You guys like Embiid or thinking blowout?

    I can’t pay that price. I think they for sure blow out the Suns.

    True. That’s where home court advantage comes in too. Are the home Spurs better than the road Pels for example.

    OKC Thunder official Twitter tweeted a picture of him at shootaround in Sacramento. I think he plays and I want in on a potentially lower owned WB against the Kings.

    He was at shootaround the other day also. He still didn’t play.

    Where is this Westy is gonna be in source? Same ish as Dipo being out yesterday, which he might as well have been. Can we all wait until there is something set in stone before making such claims?

    I pretty much guarantee the Pacers don’t get blown out. I think they’ll still win actually.

    True, excellent point.

    Utah has been on the road their last 4 games all this past week. Flight from Utah, to Memphis, then backwards to Dallas, out to Philly, then up to Boston, now back to Indy. After the game they fly back to Utah. This is where you’re worn down and falter and just want to get back home. Not saying they can’t win, or won’t handle business, but it’s not that simple either.

    I think he’s the best play on the slate. People are tripping because he played Denver a few games ago and didn’t reach value but if you look at the game log, or watched the game, he still dominated. They still couldn’t stop him. He still shot like 7-10 or 8-10 or something and had like 22 points 9 reb, 8 assists. That game was in Denver. This one is in Milwaukee who plays at one of the fastest paces in the league. I will be playing Big D in almost all of my lineups.

    This has happened like the last 2 or 3 games. He’s practiced and they had already listed him out ahead of time and then he doesn’t play.

    Fox/Lou Will or DSJ/Mitchell? GPP

    I live on the east coast and have no idea how close Sacramento is to UCLA, but is it possible his wife had the twins near UCLA and he just left to go to shoot around to stay loose.

    Side note on the Wizards..

    The Wizards recently had a “volatile” practice in which several players got into verbal altercations, according to sources of Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    “First the Warriors, now the Wizards. It’s not uncommon for underperforming teams to get into arguments, but this one seems a bit more extreme with recent reports indicating that Washington management could be ready to blow this whole thing up. Bradley Beal, who has the most value of all the Wizards’ potential trade chips, was reportedly exasperated after the ordeal and expressed to team officials: “I’ve been dealing with this for seven years.” Beal would likely welcome a trade, and he’s the type of player who will be elite anywhere.”

    lmfao, just blow it up.

    They might not get blown out, but I don’t see any way they win tonight. I still like Myles Turner though.

  • Ree4erMadness

    If Westbrook does play, then he becomes the best play on the site other than Giannis. IMO. Pace up game against Fox defense? Just had twins? He’s going to go NUTS. Somebody else recently came back and crushed after their child was born too, I can’t think of who it was. But he should be in a GREAT mood.

    I prefer the former but the 2nd one probably has higher upside.

  • travvis

    Wilson Chandler now at 27 minutes is an interesting wrinkle.

    They looked really good against Boston, was one of their better games imo. I’ll still be on Myles Turner tonight and some Tyreke Evans, but other than I’m staying away.
