    Gafford played last game. A whopping 1 minute.

    He wasnt 100 percent. And he is a fringe player so we will probably never know when he is back but he basically unlocks the ceiling to Lauri Markannen

    Time to get some selfish players in our lineups tonight.

    Andre Drummond goggles game. Optimizer cannot account for that

    Maybe. You could also make the case that Gafford’s minutes are more tied to extended ones for Thad Young or to a lesser degree Valentine (and that if Markkanen is crushing they’ll let him keep going). I’m not saying either one of us is necessarily right, but I see either path being correct.

    Are they beer goggles?

  • JSteele

    Kemba + Brunson or Paul + Markkanen

  • captainwacky

    I mean… the first is probably a better play on paper, but I would play the 2nd in GPP’s.

    I dont think Boylen prefers to play Lauri at center unless he has to but tonight he can clearly get away with it. Lauri makes all the sense in the world tonight but I cannot rule out that he could just play 29 minutes either.

    Darn, slightly less interested in Rose and Brown now…Blake going for a 40-burger at 5% ownership or less would be so typical

    I wouldn’t play Markkanen, so the first combo

    Paul & Bertans

    Paul & Bertans

    Already have Bertans in

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Is Mahinmi finally gonna pay off? Brooks says “Pasecniks will probably be in the rotation tonight”.

  • tmarohl

    FVV out

  • choppadown

    Stuck between JVAL and Wendell Carter want to play too many bulls but….

  • megatronswanson

    Kelly O. begging me to play him at season low 3.7k on DK. Philly plays big, but they’re stout defensively and his minutes have been sporadic to say the least. Decisions …

    If DJJ is out he’s a fine play. He should have to play 30+

  • hithisisnom

    Seems like a pretty good contrarian slate. Some super low-owned studs in good spots (Lillard, Whiteside, Siakim, Ingram), high ceiling guys in tough matchups (Simmons, Jokic, Embiid), in addition to some pivots I really like. If you run this slate 100 times, Jonas outscores Bertans more than 10 percent of the time, right? Brown over Tatum feels like the easiest pivot in the world, too.

    You’re implying that Boylen has a linear thought process regarding basketball?

  • JSteele

    Bertans is starting as expected. He played 40 minutes last time he started.

  • feekdogg

    Do we assume Milsap sits again?

  • cfitz19

    IT & Barton or Damion Lee & Jrue H.?

    Anyone think Daniel Theis plays more minutes tonight since they Celtics are missing Time Lord and Marcus Smart so they are really limited in how they defend KP. They cant survive with Enes Kanter out there for long stretches defensively.

    You just stumbled upon my sleeper of the night. I think the C’s need Kanter tonight, Porzingis is the stretch guy and I wouldn’t consider a offensive juggernaut .

  • captainwacky

    I like the thought of Kanter too, but Monarch’s point is pretty valid— if Kanter is on the floor, who guards porzingis? I don’t think they’re just going to concede pick and pop 3’s to him.

    Porzingis is such a matchup nightmare for anybody he’s 8 ft tall and can shoot the 3. I don’t think they can really matchup effectively with him.
