    Oh i see, if he is out then Jaylen Brown is an elite play, as far as i am concerned.

    Can’t believe DET went right back to a minute split with Jackon and Ish. Wondering if that was garbage run, but scared to go back to Jackson despite recent form.

    Yeah, I’m not sure what’s going there with the minutes, but I’m taking a wait and see approach.

    On the other hand, Griffin and Drummond interest me. DET has a tendency to rest one of them on a B2B, so maybe we’ll get news one sits, making the other a near lock for me.

    Someone mentioned Sexton earlier, His usage actually goes down 5% with the other guys out. Nwaba sees a huge boost, I can honestly see Nance and Della have reaching value. Don’t know if Sauce will play much if at all.

    I wanna say it was due to a blowout….but what do I know.

    Looking at the flow, Ish was part of the crew that did the blowing out and didn’t really play garbage time but Reggie would’ve probably closed the game if it wasn’t a blowout.

    I got a soft spot for Blossomgame. Not sure how I got this spot for him but I think I played him one time at min price and had a nice score with him.

    Anyway gonna roll him out and hope for 20 mins and he somehow gets there haha

      RG Overall Ranking

    • Ranked #96

      RG Tiered Ranking

    Bayless, Beverley, Brown, Rozier, Clarkson, Sexton, Burks, Smart, SGA

    Gotta fit 3 to 5 of them (on DK some are SF eligible)… key to the slate picking the right ones out of that group

  • zpa1989

    may play blossomgame and nwaba on FD together and hope one goes 8 to 10x then low score drop whoever flops

    He left the game with 5 minutes left in the 3rd and never returned.

    Lakers have to be a mess right now with the majority of the team rumored to be traded any second now. Sign me up for ball hog LeBron on a ton of rest vs a road B2B Pacers team without their best defender.

    Right now I have Bayless, Rozier and Burks plugged in. I haven’t considered Beverley or SGA yet so I’ll take a look and see.

    Burks has a nice recent history against Boston in terms of peripherals and now gets a big usage and minutes jump with no Osman. I like him a lot today more than Clarkson and Sexton

    IND is an overall better team defensively anyway..

  • cappilary

    Smart….Brown….or both?

    Jones Jr. being out gave him increased minutes

    So with Jones Jr. still out does Olynyk still get 30+ minutes tonight?

    He’s a punt. Could play 32, could play 12.

  • feekdogg

    Miami is a good defensive team. The Blazers are routinely putting up 120+ at home. Something’s gotta give.

  • JSteele

    @noddy said...

    Yes, he’s basically competing with old man James Johnson for minutes at the 4. Kelly probably gets a minimum of 28 minutes tonight with upside in the 30s.

  • Ace15

    Not saying I’m a Kelly O Whisperer, buttt I think you’ll want BAM instead of Kelly tonight.

  • NarrowJ

    Do we think ORL can stay within, say, 15 points of OKC tonight?

  • JSteele

    Anyone going Cody Zeller? He had a broken hand so its not like he needs conditioning to get back into the game flow. He could be a nice pivot from Kelly O?

  • dominicanpapi

    @cappilary said...

    Smart….Brown….or both?

    I have both as my shooting guards on FD but that may change.

    Rozier correlates positively with: Brown, Theis, Smart
    Smart correlates well with Theis and Rozier
    Brown correlates well w/Theis and Rozier

    Tatum and Horford correlate well with each other.

    Honestly, just eye balling the last 6 games Kyrie has been out, the only time Tatum really went off was when Irving and Smart were out. Smart had a 50 burger but I think that was propped up by him having 5 steals. Smart also had a decent game when Irving and Brown were out.

    I think Rozier and Brown are fine plays. I think Smart relies more on peripherals. FWIW, Cleveland is like 4th or 5th in turnovers per game, meaning they’re really good at not turning the ball over.

    He still hasn’t played game speed in a while so his conditioning can still be affected. Practice/scrimmage isn’t nearly the same as a game.

  • MerMer3

    Lance Stephenson #revenge? Playing his old team with the guy who beat them last year? Orrr maybe I’m reaching too far….

    You are probably right but the Clippers interior defence is a lot like a practice drill.

    Bam is a C on Yahoo…Kelly O is a PF. Not looking for a C
