    Maybe out tonight : Dipo, Porzingis, Lillard, Embiid B2B ?

    Dipo most likely out

    Victor Oladipo will play Wednesday, unlikely to play Thursday. https://t.co/Se0Hb0HtHt

    Too many unknowns, including Dame. But Lebron is a lock, I think he averages 60 FD points vs Den. I like Ben Simmons, M Morris, Barton, Huerter, Danny Green, Favors. Can’t really make LUs until at least 6:00

    Everyone have real work today? Wall has to fare better than Oladipo did yesterday right?

  • Penguin3200

    Like Simmons for sure today and hoping Embiid goes too, as he should destroy even if only in 3 quarters. Also like J Rich a lot.

    Morning gut check:

    UTA guards
    DAL players too cheap outside Luka especially if KP sits.
    Embiid will eat if he plays.
    Ja and MEM bench deliver.

    Real work today yes, but that will not stop me from thinking about NBA bench rotations for 95% of my waking hours. Love 5 game slates and at first glance this looks like a great slate to me.

    According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the NBA and NBPA have agreed to host the All-Star Game March 7 in Atlanta.

    Has anyone else noticed that Luka’s bigger games all tend to be when Porzingis is playing?

    This just feels like a mistake which is going to delay the 2nd half of the season. They should just announce the players and forget about the event.

    Or play it after the Finals.

    Trying a new strategy tonight where I go to bed with a net profit. Playing good players. Avoiding bad ones.

    Agreed. They are asking for trouble if someone gets covid and you lose all your superstars for a couple of weeks. Just not worth the risk.

    Well, the issue has largely been their roster has been in shambles. Now that JRich is back and productive, Kleber seems to be OK, and DFS will certainly bounce back soon, Defenses can’t just trap/double Luka when KP is out and expect an easy win. For larger portions of the last few Games JRich has been back he’s actually been sharing PG duties with Luka playing more off ball than I’ve seen since the Dennis Smith days. The difference is it’s been pretty effective pulling defense to the weak side leaving driving lanes open to the basket. When the defense adjusts, Luka gets his way in single coverage. So I expect a good game from Luka tonight if KP sits.

    I don’t know if they’ll be able to catch up enough to make the playoffs but they’ll be playing better than .500 ball the rest of the season barring injuries or a 2nd COVID wave…and they stop bricking 3’s with the lead late in the 4th, never seen a team so happy to take a quick 3 with the lead outside when the Warriors we’re killing the league. Difference is GS made them…

    Can curry get another “70-Boyga”.

    Crazy! Someone max entered 150 lineups with a player pool of 76 and didn’t cash a single one: https://twitter.com/ChunkYardage/status/1357366367125712897

  • jfitzgan

    Does sterling brown get some extra run tonight if oladipo is out?

  • feekdogg

    Fanduel did some position movement. Eric Gordon and Nwaba are now PG. Paschall is a C.

    I’m sniffing a blowout here (assuming Unicorn plays).
    Be careful on those starters.

    If Lillard out will that line drop?

  • feekdogg

    He’s elevated his play this year, but Jokic’s history vs. the LAL no es bueno.

    I’m guessing the guy probably got a little too excited about Dort & Ish

    If KP is out, Kleber is the value lock of the night.
