    Was pumped to win an $888 ticket last week until I saw this slate how gross.

    Lots of question marks today. What’s know is Phoenix will be going all out. Booker, Rubio, Ayton, and Johnson in play. Saric can be sneaky too.

    I think Bulter gets big minutes and Bam is appealing. Might have to jump off Hero and Robinson. Dragic ankle ok? Nunn out so he could see more minutes along with Hero.

    Point guard is interesting. Have to like Murray but Lakers play guards well. Brogan and Rubio look solid. Burke is a nice punt.

    Does Mil give their starters one last run? Bledsoe must likely to see more min. Sign me up for 30 min of Giannis.

    Lakers are interesting. Davis really cheap and LeBron not too priced up. Not sure I will play with either.

    Olidipo interesting and even more so if Warren is out.

    Do we keep riding MJP?

    Lots of Dallas punts. One or two of them will exceed value by a lot. Could be a TH JR explosion?

    OKC really has nothing to play for but riding guys hard. They might need some rest. Blazy looks like a very nice punt for nothing.

    Just some thoughts off the top of my head.

    Feel free to list players that seem safe?

    How about MPJ, Bam, Dipo?

  • monarch

    Who is on B2B? I know Toronto so I like Terrance Davis Jr III

  • squidkill

    Booker seems like top play with min and safety baked in

    Booker and Ayton.

  • monarch

    I just really respect OKC wing defense. Dort is the truth

  • jessedio

    Can UTAH still catch OKC for the 5th seed? I’m sure they’d rather play the Rockets instead of DEN. Bracket seeding still might be motivation for both teams.

    Way to many injuries right now to make lineups. Too many question marks.

    I can’t think of a better match up for Boban’s skills than Rudy G

    Funny how the two best games today are the ones that are not nationally televised. Instead ESPN is covering the Bucks-Raptors bench game

    Possible – Utah plays the resting Dallas team tonight, and has a game with San Antonio. OKC plays Phoenix, Miami and the Clippers.

    Boban day?

    The only teams with anything to play for at this point are the west teams going for the 8th seed. Specifically, the Suns have 3 games left vs 2 for SAS, MEM, & POR. We could conceivably see a 3 way tie between POR, PHO, and MEM for 8th. Not sure of the tie breakers here, but those 3 teams all have something to play for over the next couple days.

    I had heard that the Bucks were planning on treating this as the final tuneup for the playoffs, and then resting everyone against their last two games, Washington and Memphis.

    Boban day?

    I think all the DAL bench are certainly good plays. Gotta figure if UTA runs out their notmal starters, Boban will play real minutes to matchup. I like Burke and Kleber heretoo.

    Raptors starters played upper 30s minutes yesterday. They have nothing to gain here whatsoever. Only downside. It would be foolish to shoot all their bullets here on a B2B vs a team they need to best four times in a few weeks.

    I feel like Hardaway could be the guy here

    He will do well if he gets 25 minutes or so. He is bare min on fd. I’m not sure You have to go there tonight. Do you really need the savings? Or just pay up for Ayton, Rudy, or Jokic. He makes sense if you want to roster Giannis, AD, or LeBron.

    Do you have any temperature on the Bucks game? Giannis gonna get some run? Bledsoe or Middleton? I’m not sure what they are doing tonight.

    He probably is but he’s in a different price bracket than the other 3. I think you can really play all 4

    On a normal slate with the news I’d agree. Tonight, I don’t see any minutes guarantee. Burke and Boban would likely play regardless of outcome. Honestly, I might even consider Jackson or even Cleveland before THJ today.

    I keep hearing from coaches about how guys are still getting into game shape. They need to shake the rust off. They need to get their conditioning up. Then as soon as there’s a B2B, it’s like whoa, can’t push them.

    Indy has pushed their starters over 30 minutes in B2B games.
    Heat pushed some guys near or over 30 minutes in B2B’s. (Dragic, Olynyk, Bam)
    SAC, NO (other than Zion) and SA did too, but they’re playing for something.
    ORL did.
    BOS maybe was going to, but they blew out BKN.

    Anyway, I wouldn’t assume anything.

    A playoff atmosphere game against MIL, could help TOR prep. I don’t see how there’s nothing to gain from it.

    Wouldn’t be surprised either way.

    I have a feeling tonight is going to be more like preseason where you can leave some money on the table without sacrificing much.

    Playoff atmosphere? There are dogs and mascots piped in as virtual fans. After the games they all go play golf or ride the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
