    And so…it begins…….

    First off I hate this slate. Thinking i will be having a lowry/gasol/leonard combo great night for stars and scrubs

    Would that put Dellevadova into the starting spot I assume?

    Yes, he would draw the start. Regardless, Delly could be a decent play in a potential blowout.

    But, the Cavs like to have bad teams play with them.

    I hope this helps anyone who’s on the fence about Pau. He’s not a horrible play but his ceiling is definitely not as high based on his history versus the Spurs.

    You’re only looking at real points per game. If you look at fantasy points, it looks much better:

    Haha, I saw your comment right after I posted mine.

    Trying to get Lowry, Kawhi, Pau & Kyrie to fit. Any reason why Jason Thompson won’t see 20+ minutes for the Raps tonight?

    Scola was rested last game, which was the only reason he got minutes, I believe.

  • Craigg13

    so many PFs, so few spots.

  • wolverinezack

    Sitting on a Lowry/Kawhi/LMA/Gasol core right now. Lowry put up good numbers against the other meeting with ATL earlier this year. In the Bulls/Spurs game earlier this year – 92-89 both Kawhi and LMA had good games for SA.
    While Len and Jokic can both put up good numbers, aren’t they both a tad foul prone? My luck I take either and they pick up 2 quick fouls and the other one eats. Who will be matched up on Jokic? Chandler? I know he’s a shell of his former DPOY self but he’s still decent at D. Not like Jokic is Olajuwon. Am I silly to think he can limit him? Faried is active enough he can limit Len and maybe they both share rebounds as opposed to 1 going off

  • tarheelsrule44

    You guys are putting a lot of faith in the Cavs and Spurs players playing. I’m too scared to build a core around them without a pivot in mind.

  • JGallo1018

    The sub $4K players are all that matters today..whoever has the right ones that hit w the studs that’s it. Getting some of them at 3-9% ownership is key but risky and ballsy. For GPP obviously..

  • wolverinezack

    Question of the day is will any of these games be close? Vegas doesn’t think Cle/LA and Chicago/SA will be and I don’t blame them.
    That would mean stacking Phx/Den with maybe some of the ATL/Toronto game the way to go. Phx B2B, who knows if Knight plays and jacks up shots taking away from Booker who’s more scoring dependent, and whether we get 14/10 30pt Len or 25/15/6 dimes Len. Faried has been on a tear but who knows if he will play 25mins or 35mins or if we will tweak his back again. Everyone has been waiting on Barton to blow up with Gallo out but that has yet to happen. Mudaiy seems like the closest thing to a sure bet

    Shoot…I just read that he started instead of Scola. Didn’t realize Scola rested. Thanks.

  • osuryanf

    Disgusting slate.. and it gets much, much, MUCH worse if ANY of LeBron, Aldridge, or Kawhi sit.

  • w3stcoastoff3ns3

    Man this sure is a ugly slate… only playing about $6 worth of line ups. smh.

  • Blink4

    Is there any way to not go Kawhi/LBJ at SF on FD? Literally everyone else is a massive punt.

    That’s about what it’s worth maybe.

    Anyone feel the FD tourney scores will get above 350 tonight?

  • wolverinezack

    Might be forced to punt if either Kawhi or LBJ sit though I would think there’s a greater chance of LBJ sitting than Kawhi.

  • deerosa

    Get Creative, Sasha Vujacic and Jason Thompson were in some topp lineups the other night.

    Hello Huertas!!!

  • wlross3

    Mirotic a good play w/ Butler out?

    on fanduel? knicks new came out after lock cant imagine anybody having vujacic before the news came out he was starting

  • wolverinezack

    There’s been nothing about Kyrie/LBJ/Love sitting. Let’s say they all play and the Cavs play like the team they are capable of. If that’s the case, they are up 20 going into the 4th and all 3 ride the bench in the 4th. Highly unlikely either of them hit value if that’s the case. For Kyrie’s price, maybe he hits 30-35. You can probably find cheaper value with the same production @ PG. With Love, maybe he hits the same 30-35 or certainly more like 15-20 at which you can def get more production cheaper out of the likes of Faried, Randle, Taj. LBJ say he hits 4x which he’s done 8 out of the last 9 except the Detroit game where he was just off. Does he hit 4x in 3 quarters? If you fade LBJ you’re probably looking at Baze or Dunleavy as the safest option. You need them to hit 25-30 and hope LBJ only goes for 4x or less

    That’s the best I’ve seen it explained all day!
    I think you can safely apply the same logic to the Spurs studs as well.
