    We’ll never know now, but if KP played, Dallas by 20+.

    I’m not seeing it. Dont feel like either team is good enough right now to blow the other one out with or without KP

    With Dame out Melo Alpha Male is unleashed tonight. He not going to defer to anyone. He’s Apex Predator on POR. Lock N Load.

    Neither of Blevins or Elleby went to the G league?

    They subbed in last game but not sure if they went down afterwards. Wouldn’t think so with all the injuries

    Newbie ticket winner here from yesterday… I won a ticket to the MLB Opening Day Squeeze and the NHL Super Crossbar on 2/25 on FD. Does the app remind me when those are coming up or do I have to set myself some alarms to not forget them lol?

    You’ll get an email the morning of the contest telling you that you’re entered and you need to set a lineup.

    I believe they will auto enter you and you should get an email saying that was done. However, last time I didnt get an email but saw that I had an entry that needed a lineup populated.

    Melo 28% usage, Simons 23.7%, Trent 22.8% w/o Dame, CJ, Nurk

    The issue is whether Melo starts and his minutes. Simons and Trent will both start and likely play fairly heavy minutes regardless of outcome, Simons specifically. Melo isn’t likely to see 20+ minutes in a large blowout which is the most likely outcome here. I imagine their trash time lineup would be Simons, Elleby, Blevins, Hood, & Giles.

    I take back my take back.
    I’m predicting Dallas by 20+. Unicorn plays. Paschall out.

    You think it’s still a blowout if Embid sits?

    Paschall was the tipping point? What is your prediction if KP sits? Close game?

    I had one of my bigger wins a few years ago on Christmas day with a low owned Kanter vs Embid. Think Kanter went for like 50 or 60. He wont be low owned tonight but…

    I think Melo will play 30 mins regardless of outcome

    Okc blew out houston yesterday without SGA. Lets not look straight to a blowout instantly because yesterday told us anything can happen lol

    I’m still seeing PHI -10 which honestly feels low to me. POR allows the 5th most points to opponents in the league, PHI 10th fewest. 76ers on a 4 game winning streak and over the last 3 winning by an average of 13.3 (of course MIN skews that). I’m not sure it matters if Embiid plays here, though the chances of a blow out are significantly higher if he plays.

    Not at 5800 on FD.

    I get that, sometimes odd things happen. But likely outcomes are part of my build process, not going to change that at this point. High and tight are where I’m going to target, large spreads I’m looking more for value with guaranteed minutes.

    Dipo most likely out

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

    I wish he was out yesterday so I wouldn’t have played him.

    Spreads aren’t arbitrary. Doesn’t mean they’re always right, but Vegas wins more than loses. Like I said strange things happen. If Melo starts I’ll absolutely want some. Off the bench, I’ll look elsewhere. I’ll be heavy Simons & Trent. If Embiid sits, heavy Simmons and Harris as they’ll be responsible if it blows out.
