    2 game slate. I think I will pass on playing.

  • Bodiaz36

    Wow, last night was nuts. Put up a 305 on FD, fell off the cash line when the Clips/Celtics went to OT. Oh well, on to today. Oh yeah, this is the first slate in recent memory where you literally can’t do anything until the injury report is cleared up. May just relax and take the evening off, don’t feel like being held hostage to all the news on a 2-gamer. GL to all who play.

  • JSteele

    Melo time

  • SteeloCity

    I’m out today. Good luck all.

    No thank you to this garbage slate

  • savant111

    I’m in. I can only play NBA on nights when lock is at 7:30 or 8:00.

    Who’s Melo going to spend the most time guarding tonight?

  • tmarohl

    Only reason I am playing tonight is to have a paid contest every day of the season for the DK crown bonus.

  • frugal

    Note to self…never doubt Luka again.

    Going to enter a few .10 contest on DK I think since I have tickets, can’t believe the slate is so thin tonight.

    On a 2 game slate, it’s gonna be a bunch of everybody having the same LU correct?

    I guessed right that he wouldn’t play much in the second half. I just guessed wrong with the kind of numbers that dude could put up in like a quarter.

    I think he must have had a dream he broke all kinds of franchise scoring records last night

    Yeah, me too. I guess I shouldn’t have after just seeing what he did to the Spurs in the 1st half. I still took a little thankfully. We got so lucky that ATL was willing to swap picks. Trae’s good too, but damn I would be so angry if we had missed out on Luka.

    Not just franchise, 1st player in NBA history to post a 35 point triple double in 25 or less minutes, youngest in history to post B2B 35 point triple doubles, 5th player in NBA history to avg a triple double over a 10 game span along with Lebron, Russ, Jordan, and Oscar Robinson. And he’s only 20…

    The announcers said that Dirk was the greatest European player and Doncic was 2nd.

    Considering Dirk had a 20 year career, and Doncic is only 20, that is incredible.

    Yeah, Dirk holds a dear place in my heart so this is a kinda odd moment for me as if Doncic progresses really at all he has the potential to be a an even better player than Dirk which is really tough for me to digest.

    I hate two game slates as much as anyone, but this is actually a pretty good one. Lots of different ways to go.

    With Dame out and Rubio unlikely to play it definitely creates more strategic scenarios in building.

    It’s phenomenal though as a Mav’s fan, right? Historically not many teams, across all sports, get to go from one legend to the next coming almost immediately.

    wildcards: Little/ Melli (not Mello)

    are Little & Melli legit?
    Their fppm is outstanding when injuries are factored in

    Figuring out what PHX is going to do, assuming Rubio sits is a little tricky.

    One would assume T. Johnson/Booker/Oubre/Saric/Kaminsky, but essentially and unsurprisingly that grouping sucked and got benched and Okobo and Bridges played a ton in the 2nd half. Saric and T. Johnson hardly played.

    Is J.J Redick a better option over DiVincenzo tonight ?

    Yep, again we got really, really lucky that ATL was willing to pass on Luka.
