    So on DK… Hield or TLC? I know Buddy is on a B2B…. but about to flip the coin… anyone with any suggestions?

    I don’t know if this has been addressed, but Utah’s game starts 90 minutes before the Clippers. Any worries about if Utah is losing badly the Clips pull a last second rest? I have a large amount of Paul and Griffin tonight. I may scale it back a bit. But the Clippers’ game doesn’t matter if Utah loses.

    SA would have to be up by a lot, probably not too much of a concern in Utah. I can’t imagine them losing by more than 15 (if they even lose at all). Any ideas what Pop is going to do tonight? The game is meaningless for the Spurs, but I see their regs are still listed as the starters (for now).

    Only playing the After Hours slate tonight. Millsap and Hardaway killed my lineups in the short slate yesterday, even though the Hawks were the only team “playing for something.” Not touching the 14-game lottery.

    Same here. Still had a really good night last night but would have been a monster night if I had just stuck with my original plan and completely faded Millsap. I hate large slates so no way am I getting in too deep with this one tonight.

  • gaelicgirl

    Is it safe to assume neither Boogie nor Brow will play tonight?

  • frugal

    Whelp Lillard out. Picking the right value PG is going to be key tonight I think.

    I really like Lowry tonight if he starts.

    Well Pop said he was pissed about the recent 2 losses, and he wasn’t going to rest anyone since now he has a worry about “rhythm” with the team going into the playoffs. But not resting anyone for the game, may just relate to playing but limiting minutes. (last game vs Portland LA played 18min, and Kawhi played 20 and playing everyone on his bench at least 12 min).

    But, Last game of the regular season, and essentially playing for nothing other than jacking with the Jazz seeding…. Plus the “Pop” factor of not having any clue what he is thinking… just not a good recipe for me personally to start any Spur. Flip side, everyone probably feels the same and any Spur will be low ownership.. so if LA or Kawhi play more than 30 min… Im sure they will be in the money.

    I may just create a “zero expectation” .25 cent LU and throw Kawhi and LA in there and let the chips fall as they may…

    Kyle Lowry

    Considering going rotisserie with Lowry, Paul, & IT paired and budget PGs. Still need news on Rondo to see if Grant is in play.

    That’s what I am worried about, If Utah just plains loses LAC takes it easy 2nd half with there core

  • whothis

    Westbrook? How many mins? Easy to fit him in with all the value opening up with all these starters sitting out.

    they already won it… No Alphabet = No challenge for Boston.

    I was more looking at it from the Clippers point of view. Obviously if they knew Utah was losing badly that would probably affect Paul/Griffin/Jordan’s minutes (well after lock).

    But it sounds like the Spurs will play some, but the Jazz will be going all out trying to get that home seed. So this should be a competitive game. I think the Spurs at 75% can still hang with just about anyone.

    Now I’m kind of worried about Kevin Love. Lebron is out. Kryie might be. If they are just accepting the #2 seed Love should also rest. I only have him in one lineup so it’s not a huge deal. Luckily most of the games start at 7 (central) so we’ll all know who’s playing in the 10 “early” games.

  • Crimsonstar18

    Is Westbrook playing? I can’t imagine the reasoning behind it, he’s played hard all year and set the record and now should rest.

    He took off last night against my timberpups, why bother playing at all tonight?

    PF will give PG a run for its money….

    Will Jokic get 35-40 min in his final appearance of the season? If so, he could go for 70 tonight against mostly backups for OKC.

    Then you have…

    James Johnson and the heat vying for playoffs (even if hopes are slim), getting 38 min, against the worst 2nd unit in the NBA.
    Aaron Gordon, 35+ min vs. backups
    Nikola Mirotic vs.BKN
    Julius Randle vs. GS (Pace) backups
    Richard Holmes vs. NYK (lol)
    Dieng vs. Hou
    Larry Nance vs. GS
    Jason Smith vs. Miami
    Juan Hernangomez vs. OKC backups

    Probably a few other pieces I’m not considering ATM.

    Tonight is the wild wild west. Anything can happen. PG and PF combo’s are likely going to decide winners, IMO.

  • jadoninc

    The best way I find to attack this slate is to only play studs who are at home people pay for tickets they have to get at least one half of the proper product.

  • chronoxiong

    I was thinking about playing Jerian Grant but now Rondo is a game time decision. Just darn it. I want to make my lineup and go on with my day since I’m working tonight. One thing I know for sure is I am not touching that Detroit Pistons team. Had enough of Stan Van Gundy’s trolling ways. Ellenson got benched the other night which costed me my cash games. Boban didn’t do much either but since he was highly owned, it didn’t make much difference. But I am fading them for sure.
