    I doubt it. There are lots of center plays and value at guard. Zizic is good but you could be missing out on a lot of points if he duds and the Nurks, Embiids, Jokers and KATs smash.

    Yeah, to be fair, he had a pretty good game by his standards and only went for 24 fp’s. That’s cool, but he could easily foul out in 7 minutes vs embiid.

    Not the biggest fan of his price on dk (5000) but the matchup plays well for Kenrich. It’s a long shot but he is shooting 6 3’s a game so hope he hits 3 or 4 a couple layups and few peripherals and you’re right around 35.

    This i’m on board with.

    who is a utility under 5k on DK that’s > Brunson?

  • Tajtrivedi

    Brunson/Dunn/Osman or THJ/Shaq/Lou will?

    AD or Rondo? Help me decide please

    WOW those are two huge risk guys…. AD only playing 20min and Rondo getting usage sucked by Lebron, I’d go Porter. If I had to choose between the 2 I’d say AD, He can get 40 in 20 min.

    even going against Embiid?

    centers crush against embiid fairly often, he’s a good one on one defender but schematically opposing 5s can get easy boards/putbacks/fast breaks over him.

    Plus he plays like 3 minutes of the first quarter so zizic could theoretically get hot in the first. Idk if nance and tt out as well, I don’t see how he doesn’t crush value. Who’s gonna vulture C minutes, frye? Lol

    LOUUU went up $500 from yesterday.. and the slate was out already before he had the big game again. 7300 is kinda pricey for a guy that plays 23, 24, 25 mins like LOUUU. Who I always have some shares of. Does LOUUUUU play 30 32 mins tonight? I hope so. Feel he is MUST play again. If wasn’t for him I’d have had an O-FER yesterday

    He played 23-25 minutes in blowouts. Since the Harris trade in close games he’s been routinely going over 30 minutes, they’ve just been involved in lots of blowouts recently. Dude is a PPM monster at home, with Harris off the court he’s putting up PPM in the range of MVP candidates. If this game stays close and he gets his full 4th quarter run and he could push for 32 minutes and if that happens, as crazy as it sounds he has a 35DK points floor with a 60 point ceiling. As you can tell from my tone here I absolutely love him tonight.

    Man if you had 5.1 I’d go Frank Jackson, he is playing with a purpose and one of the few Pels that goes all out right now. Problem is there is a huge hole from 5K down to 4.4K. Can you go down to Wagner, Knight somewhere and go up somewhere else?

    Jazz permanently banned that fan from the game last night. Mitchell and Gobert critical of fan and supported Russ. Nice

    Yeah the more I look at it I like him. Risky for sure but no one will be on him.

  • Kmasonbx

    As silly as it sounds I’m surprised Chriss got suspended, I mean what else is he supposed to do if a guy grabs him by the throat and tries to take his head off?

    Russ went a little overboard but these fans are way out of line a lot of the time. They think because they paid for their ticket it entitles them to speak to the players any way they want, knowing damn well they wouldn’t say anything of the such if they saw them on the street.

    thought the same, I guess he was supposed to just sit there and get choked out??? Lol

    He said something to the effect of, well in that case I guess I’ll get my hunting rifles and my bow and my 4-wheeler all while grinning and laughing at the absurdity of what KG was saying. Sort of how I grin and shake my head when I hear him on tv now days.

    Sweet Lou cost me thousands last night. Had two LU’s in the top 10, one of them in 3rd in the late night slate going into the 4th quarter. I had no Lou. Ended up in 25th and 30th.

    In all fairness I was rooting for you and superstars last night. I finished in 189 th place with 282.75 pts. I had sweet lou/kyrie/horford and brown going. If sweet lou doesn’t have a good game they might of played the fourth quarter and a bunch of us behind you would of made up a lot of ground. In hindsight his good game might of helped you more than hurt you.

    Kyrie played the fourth for about 6 minutes. It was a combo of Hayward playing 3 minutes in the second half and Sweet Lou going ape. It was still a fun sweat, but it definitely hurt more than helped. Everyone who passed me had sweet Lou with the exception of one who had rozier…who also played a lot more than normal because Lou went off so hard.

    Edit: I was also shocked that they took out Green in garbage time. 10-15 fpts from him in the last 7 min of the game and I would have taken the whole thing down

    So the fan’s response that he simply told him to ice his knees was a lie, I’m assuming? An arena employee or another fan must have given a neutral party account to what happened.

  • ASitar

    I’m doing a Sexton/Osman/Zizic/Simmons/Embiid stack. Seems like on shitty medium slates like these a game like this stays close and if it does this stack could pay off. I think the Cavs game stack was in the winning LU a couple of days ago and it’s not like Philly has been world beaters and now they aren’t gonna have their best defensive player. Watch that game go to OT and the one you want exposure to.

  • dominicanpapi

    Saw a tweet about Minnesota’s practice/shootaround. KAT was in a white jersey suggesting starter, Bates-Diop was not, suggesting reserve. Looks like Jones was also wearing white. Based on that, I’m guessing Wiggins plays and one of Teague/Rose is out.

  • rog11sm

    I don’t think they let horford in the game during the 4th at all . On a side note nice call with gallo though. If I went with him instead of horford I would of been there with you. good luck to you and everybody else on here tonight,

    haha. Unlike KG, Miller is legit.

    “The 7-foot NBA center for the Sacramento Kings and two-time NBA All Star, wears a size 16 shoe, and likely has a bow draw length requiring custom arrows. Brad spends the NBA off-season, hunting and fishing on 900 acres he owns near Kendallville, Indiana, not far from where he attended Purdue University.”

    oh, and I finally found the quote from Miller:

    http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2004/may/19/garnett_apologizes_for/

    Nevertheless, center Brad Miller — who’s sparred with Garnett at times this series — poked a little fun.

    “I’m bringing my shotgun, my bow and arrow, my four-wheel drive truck and four wheelers and run over him,” Miller said Tuesday. “It’s going to be the ultimate battle. He’s a warrior, and that’s how I like to play when I step between the lines.”

    Man, good reporting right there.

    Man, I can not get myself to play Jackson at 5.1K against the Bucks. If it was a sweet match up I’d go for it, but against the Bucks? I don’t know.
