    Last two game slate of the year, sorry guys.. I’m taking this one tonight.

  • vick325

    Jokic worth it tonight? Or just load upon Z and use the savings elsewhere?

    MPJ just needs to be in a system like the Rockets or Mavericks where he is the primary ball handler, his ceiling is atleast as high as doncic

    Um no, he’s very talented but a much different skill set. Could be somewhat like a poor man’s version of KD with his jump shot and length I would guess ceiling-wise.

    I think he is even better than my neighbour Jursik Doncic!

    The only reason he score so much in our neighbour hood league is because when he is so drunk he sweats and no one wants to touch/guard him.

    MPJ could take him no problem.

    You were talking about him werent you……..

    Didn’t see this during the game, but this is beyond shady…Nurse should’ve been given a tech!

    Not sure if it’s been said, but Scott Foster is the crew chief for game 7 tonight. Historically has made some pretty soft calls against Boston. Although they should be used to that after game 6, Boston should have won that game.

    I like it….why not….everyone else is trying every “non basketball” advantage they can get.

    Players yell……try and spook shooters….they have a line of how close you can move to half court….if there is no line the other way then he did nothing wrong

  • mmmfriedchicken

    Anyone have some info/thoughts on how teams play after 55 mins double OT of court time on 1 day rest?

    204 total of tor/bos game has me a little worried about picking high priced guards and maybe looking to go jokic/leonard route instead

    Damm fd already filled, should have reserved spots, just got home.

    It’s technically against NBA rules for coaches to leave the coaches’ box. Sure, it’s rarely called, but there’s no way in hell Nurse should’ve gotten away with standing on the baseline like that! It stinks.

    So you think coaches should be allowed to stand on the court during play?

    I think this game is low scoring and i’m cautious to go heavy on it. I do think someone needs to score and I’m guessing that’s Tatum for Boston and Lowry for Toronto. It does benefit some guys that get hustle stats like OG, and Smart but i’m not sure about the price.

    That’s why I asked who the NBA would rather see win…

    I guess at this point I cant really jump off Siakam now

    i will look at it closer….if he was touching the court then no lol.

    But with flopping, yelling at players shooting from the bench, working the refs…..hey, Nurse is just showing his creativity and working the system that everyone else is always trying to do.

    He was just maybe the first one to think of this way to do it. Pretty brilliant in its own weird way actually.

    Just like DFS, everyone is looking for a leg up. If you can get away with it then why not.

    Just as likely is the lingering chance he drops 40+ and is in the optimal

    Exactly

    Malone commented on MPJ’s discussion with the media, he said it’s better to keep those in house and they talked about it as a team.

    I wonder if this is one of those squeaky wheel gets the grease moments.

    I’m 50% Porter, which I think is right in 12 LUs on FD. With his ceiling I think you have to. I left $1,400 on the table in one, need to be real diff tonight but I have a few core players and Porter is 1 of them

  • choppadown

    Had a full bos/tor stack for my main lineup but came off it and sprinkled in some LAC and DEN. I think it ends up being a defense showdown…low total is scaring me off a bit.

    Man, that is the worst take i have ever seen.

    yeah sure where is the counter argurement. I base my opnion on what I see

  • hypegotti

    Dk gpp Siakim (ugh) and Lou or OG and Kemba?

    What the hell have you seen from Porter as a no pass ball hog who shoots every chance he gets that makes you think he has the same ceiling as someone who won every award in Europe before coming over here, finishing top 5 in MVP voting as rookie while winning ROTY before most likely finishing top 3 in MVP voting in his second year?

    Luka has had 7 games over 70 fpts this year and Porter has only had 2 games over 50

    Their ceilings aren’t even close to being comparable.

    i agree with this take. all i have from that game is lowry/smart/theis

    hard to predict where the scoring from BOS will come from and they are all decently priced up for a low scoring game
