    Interesting stat.

    Rockets have lost their last 7 playoff games officiated by Scott Foster. Chris Paul has lost the last 9.

    Wonder how this will impact things.

    Doesn’t Hill avg 28 minutes vs the Heat this year? He might put up the 2nd most PG FD points tonight on FD

    Lol cut it out

    Hill is certainly capable, but he is better coming off the bench. He is the leading three point shooter in the league this year. He is much better with the second unit.

    I see a scenario where the Bucks may try to have guys like Donte, Pat C or some other scrub drive consistently at Bam early in the game in order to maybe get a couple early foul calls on him. In that case, you may need some Kelly O.

    Westy – 28 FD points
    CP3 – 32.8 FD points
    Dragon – 29 FD points
    Hill – 33.4 FD points

    Non zero chance

    Here was what Bud said of Bledsoe yesterday:

    “At this stage, with every other day and the playoffs, the practices are really very, very light. So, he was able to do the 10 or 15 minute of actual basketball that we did and then he did some individual work in addition to that.”

    On the first NBA injury report of the day:

    Eric Bledsoe – Questionable – Right hamstring strain

    So, no change there.

    I like the Foster angle. I can see where CP3 and Harden get frustrated by him. He probably doesn’t by into their iso and flopping tendencies and they pout.

    Also I believe Foster and Tony Brothers ref the big games so if Harden sees them he is likely facing the Warriors, LeBron, Giannis so those games he is more likely to lose than if he were playing say a scrub (siddom reference) team.

    And Mike D’Antoni is not great at working the refs. He kinds just screams at them and makes awkward gestures

    I can put numbers together too to prove a point. But your asking Hill to do something he hasn’t done all season, while Dragic and CP3 have their worst games of the series.

    Westy is limited still so I can see a situation where he hits 28 but if he does go over 30 minutes, he could easily outscore 33.4…

    I got a chance to look at yesterday. I scored 254 on DK. Pretty good, considering the day. Faded Murray/Millsap and had low-owned Gobert.

    No love for Foster in this game!

    Somebody has to win, though, so maybe Foster will play it straight up

  • @tmarohl said...

    I’ll probably be around 75% on Giannis. Probably be around 75% on Bam. 25% on Butler. Little Harden, as he hasn’t been getting there all series long. Heavy on CP3. Probably 50% on Dragic. Spread out a lot of the cheap value guys like Bazely, Crowder, Iggy, Williams, Pat C, etc.

    It’s really coming down to which 1 of buckets, Dragon, and bam I’m fading. I don’t think all 3 are getting there again, i have a feeling heroo, drob, or a role player gets there with 2 of the core heat trio. I keep looking at marvin from the bucks, Middleton is 100% for me, regardless of Bledsoe news, this is his series. Brolo looks nice too, should push over 30 mins if he stays out of foul trouble.

  • ninogarzone

    I think convintgton is in a perfect place to come back to average low to mid 30 fpts. The first 40point game tucker was ejected and covington started taking over in the 4th quarter. This previous games he had 8 bleals. He could be quite chalky today on a team where he could lose pt to house or any other of the three point specialists. Certainly could be contrary to go low on him for someone like crowder

    For how many of the Rockets losses was CP3 with them??

    May have to do more with him than HOU

    I’m not fading anyone. If I had to choose which of the heat three to be lowest on though, it would be Jimmy. He was having an ok game, and then blew up in the last three minutes and hit about 6 shots and got some peripherals. I would like to think Bucks would do something different in the last few minutes. Combined with the price rise, and the depth of the SG position, Jimmy is the one to go light on.

    In 10 LUs I have CP3 in 5, Dragic in 4, Hill in 5, Nunn in 2 so I don’t mind either way. Just trying to lay out the scenario.

  • karimamin

    Westbrook is almost a lock. I don’t go by stats but watch the games and he looked good but his shot was off. He needs to attack the basket more instead of taking all those jumpers. He does that, he’ll get 20 points 10-12 rebounds 8-9 assists tonight plus maybe a steal/block or two. I can’t roster Hill. Those guns under Dragic just aren’t worth it with IMO. Hill just passes to someone else to shoot unless he just happens to be open in a corner, Nunn is getting more minutes but not enough to justify his price, Divencenzo not doing anything unless one or more of the upper tier scorers get into foul trouble. Thus, you may as well just focus on Westy, CP3 and Dragic as your PG options on FD.

    dude is probably working Awesomeo

    Last Spot….Gordon or Schroder???

  • gaelicgirl

    Quite a record

    Harden is a 24.6% shooter from 3 in 4th quarter and OT of playoff games over the past five years

    Only problem with him is that he’s still playing limited minutes so while CP3 and Dragic and others may play upper 30s and even 40s tonight, you have Westbrook playing 30.

  • IT4MVP

    Hmmm Harden/Hill cost the exact same as Butler/Dragic on FD. Takes?? Obviously feel much safer with the latter but the 1st option could be lower owned right

    What if Jimmy decides not to wait and goes hard all game?

  • JSteele

    I think Harden busts tonight. Foster won’t let him get away with offensive fouls and there is a chance he gets ejected for talking to him too much. He should still be good for 40s, but at his price and position you don’t need it.

    I’m undecided on Butler, he fits perfectly in my lineup right now but i’m not sure how I rank Butler, Middleton, SGA, and Schroder.

    I like Dragic, he’s been very solid.

    Also Hill was 50% owned last game because he started. I’m not so sure that it will be a lower owned combo.
