    His teammate Jamal Murray. He hasn’t had big games with Millsap available and there are lots of ways for Murray to have his minutes cut. Millsap is their only true power forward in the rotation against a team that stays big and struggles vs the four.

    I don’t believe this myself – so it’s definitely against the grain and will gain you leverage against the field in a 3 game slate.

    Who’s your chalk bust of the night? I think it’s Millsap. He’s been playing way too well lately. Everyone is locking him in without a second thought much like the Bledsoe Middleton fiasco from last night. Prior to this streak he was hot garbage. He could easily revert to that again tonight. My chalk bust pick of the night.

    I was thinking that, yet didn’t want to type it out loud 😉. Jok-daddy got into some foul trouble giving Milsap some extra run last game. However, this run he’s on has coincided with Lyles, being out, and he still be out. So….while I can see the bust…I’m just going to match the field, and differentiate elsewhere. 30% seem right?

    I have to say rwb. If that thunder nuggets game hits the vegas total or over were looking at big returns thats for sure including rwb but i could see him hitting 55-65 but pg hitting the same jokic the same milsap 40 murrary or adams as well. I think his ownership will be too much for my liking.

    You guys have fun with rwb and kyrie love, i will be taking murray at pg.

    Murray got Sg eligibility on DK. Soooo….I’ll be rocking the triumvirate

    I know this sounds crazy, seems crazy typing, but I truly think the den okc may end up being a fade in general? I have Millsap as recent post-break production is up, with IT2 in there, most minutes are out of whack. OKC players seem to be expensive. I can see rwb doing fine >70, pg I see >60, Joker >60 (prolly less).. I am going in circles now and at a loss!

    I like Murray, he has a really good ceiling and I was dead wrong on Hield vs OKC the other day…couldn’t have been more wrong. Murray is a lot like Hield.

    The thing that scares me about Murray is he had one good game vs OKC this year….22/8/8 but he played 40 minutes and was mostly alongside zero usage players in Juancho and Craig. Those guys have been replaced with higher usage players in Beasley/Harris and Will Barton. So we are looking at about eight less minutes and a significant usage drop. He can still get there but I have my doubts.

  • dominicanpapi

    Denver strikes me as one of those teams that probably needs to make a trade to clear the roster up. I have no idea why they weren’t mentioned in the AD talks. Harris/Barton/Hernangomez, 1 of Beasley/Morris and maybe Plumlee? It’s not elite names but that entire team has ballers.

    Not for nothing but both OKC-DEN games played to a real low game total this year.

    They have so many nice young players in their early 20’s.

    I’m either going to win a GPP or come really close tonight.

    On Yahoo for $22 you can get 48 PG minutes vs NYK who’re giving up on average 45.7 FP.

  • Wooden_Bones

    I like Marc Gasol tonight. He’s been producing at 1.33 FP/min over his last four games, and his minutes seem to be going up.

    Last game he was on pace for about 28 minutes, the only reason he didn’t get there was the game turned into a blowout in the second half. He had logged 14 minutes the first half. His price is only going to continue to rise as he becomes more established in TOR.

  • ASitar

    I have zero Jokic and Kawhi in only 1 DK Main LU. I feel like I don’t have enough Kawhi.

  • Agent47

    FWIW, the 2 previous meetings between OKC and DEN were both fairly low-scoring with OKC failing to top 100 in both games (DEN won 105-98 on 11/24/18 and 109-98 on 12/14). On the other hand, OKC has been in a good number of shootouts recently…

    Don’t rely on previous matchups. OKC and DEN both playing faster right now.

    Gasol started last game due to matchup. My guess is Ibaka starts tonight, but I have no interest in either.

    I’m struggling between Danny Green & Trier on yahoo. Any thoughts?

    I really like Danny Green tonight. The Celtics are surprisingly terrible against the three and he has averaged over 31 minutes/game vs the Celtics this season plus no FVV for minutes security.

  • Neilj907

    Any news on d Jordan?

    I think DEN pace up this month may be an misleading due to their schedule being heavy against faster paced teams this month, If I’m Malone, I slow this game to a crawl.

  • ASitar

    Oh, and Trier in all 4. Dude better strap up his boots and do work tonight.

    A center that shoots the three isn’t a bad play against the Celtics.
