    I’m sure Phoenix helped with that efficiency 🤔

    Well, yeah. Between the Suns and the random mess of players that are the Spurs, they haven’t exactly been playing the most prolific offenses in the league the last two games.

    Not sure why he aint getting love tonight!!

    Also think Bogdan is in a really nice spot tonight. He’s been bad lately, but has a nice matchup tonight and I expect things to bounce back. Nn the season he has a TS% 56.5%, in the last 3 game he’s been at 24.2%, in a nice matchup to SG’s i expect him to start hitting some shots. He’s getting consistent minutes. I’ll have a healthy dose of a low owned Bogdan.

    He’s only $5.1k on FD, I figure for the 275 BTS I’ll need 30 pts from 8 guys and 35 from 1. The more I can get from Dame and Harden the less I’ll need from the other 6 players, right? Plus, it’s only a 4-game slate and many other options are also unappealing for various reasons.

    That’s fair. I just don’t look at things the same way. I generally only play people under 10k that i feel have a floor of 5x on that particular night.

    Grizz are in serious tank mode, Marc is always in danger of going to the bench and not returning, it happened a couple of games ago against the Bulls despite the game being competitive. He’s really risky these days.

    I might be off base with this thought but I’d love to hear others opinions on this. Losing a game is only part of the equation in tanking. Losing to a team like the Bulls who are also in full tank mode is huge. Those are the games it makes sense to take Gasol out and not bring him back in to help ensure the loss. Milwaukee is currently sitting in the 8 spot fighting for the playoffs. Memphis is a 7 point dog at home with a healthy Gasol. This is a game you don’t have to tank in order to lose. They just aren’t the better team, even with Gasol. I’m way more likely to play Memphis players tonight then I would against Chicago. This obviously can apply to any team in similar situations. What are everyone’s thoughts on this?

    He’s $12.1k on FD, that’s why he’s not getting any love from me tonight.

    I agree in full. Right now, I’m not loving Gasol, but his minutes should be fine as Memphis shouldn’t have to pull any shenanigans to lose tonight.

    Yeah I shared my thoughts on it on page 4 but I’m on the same train of thought. Like I was thinking, those young guys aren’t trying to lose games, they’re playing to the best of their abilities due to the fact that most of them probably won’t continue seeing those opportunities when their team mates are healthy. They’ll lose just because MIL is a superior talent not because those kids are trying to lose the game purposely. They’re shooting is way off, taking a lot of ill advised shots, playing no defense from what I’ve seen recently.

    Can’t believe that the fate of how well I do tonight and if I cross the line in the BTS I am putting in the hands of Kyle Anderson!

    At least I know I can’t get Manu’d tonight!

    Kelly O didn’t start the 2nd half over him. Bam picked up his 4th foul early in the 3rd and rode the bench

    Only 200 more than ABC. And the Thunder is no more likely to blow out the Kings as the Bucks are to blow out Memphis..

    Think I would rather take my chances with RWB.

    We’ll be riding that death train together, apparently.
