    Not sure what the hold up is I sent an email but of course no response back. Lol

    No idea .. it’s been 5 days since the promo ended. I’ve had to lower my play the last two days since I have so much tied up in NFL tickets and I’d really like to not deposit again considering we probably have 150-175$ coming our way

    I totally get it. Shouldn’t take them this long.

    Good, bad?

    Fitzgerald is a little tech happy at times

    Bad, unless you’re a fan of techs. Fitzgerald has a rep (going back to when the G League was called the D League) for ejecting players on quick double techs. Here’s a short clip of him ejecting KAT, LeBron and KG.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/ic5f10/highlight_compilation_of_kane_fitzgerald/

    More recently, he’s the one who ejected Porzingis and Carlisle in that Mavs-Clippers game that had 6 techs called. He’s a notoriously thin-skinned ref who seems to relish ejecting stars who dare to question his calls or non-calls.
    Worst ref in the bubble by a mile IMO

    So, who do we fade then? This is interesting. NBA tech leaders:

    Kyle Lowry – 4th with 15
    Marcus Smart – 15th with 9
    Tatum – 18th with 8
    Siakam – 33rd with 6
    FFV and Kemba – 45th with 5

    I was just going to go all in on Lowry too, but this is giving me pause.

  • NDNole

    I keep falling on Serg he just seems like the guy who doesnt fit right in roster construction but he can make a big difference if he gets 40 which is within his ability. I think im gonna roll with him today.

  • pepsies15

    Imagine basing some of your picks off of the officials. Not saying it’s bad or wrong at all, I respect that level of analysis and thought. It just seems kind of like projecting blowouts to me. But again, this is probably why I lose money most nights instead of profiting.

    Lest Njsum1 accuse me of misdirection, I’m not claiming anyone will be ejected because it’s a Kane Fitzgerald game LOL Howeverrrr…I wouldn’t be surprised to see some questionable techs called here.
    (Full disclosure, Lowry and Smart were the first guys I thought of when I saw the ref crew)

    Yeah, I get it

    Don’t mean to put anyone off their picks, just thought it was worth mentioning since this guy definitely has a history

  • mbunner23

    I think we’ve gone a little too far if we’re trying to predict technical fouls. Just my opinion.

  • Brendan239

    Who else is nervously putting Norman W.C. Powell in one?

    Geez guys.

    I was more so joking about fading, but thought it was worthwhile to point out the tech heavy players. I do think it’s interesting. Sorry to clog up all the in depth real analysis happening in here today and the pointing out of FD’s failing ability to pay anything out in reasonable times.

    I’m legit questioning going all in on Lowry though, but I’m not legit fading him because of it. Might go down to like 80% though.

    He’s not on the tech list, so go all in. Once Lowry and FVV are ejected in the first 4 minutes, he should get 44 minutes.

  • Englishfire

    Feel like lowry doesn’t do as good this game.. I’m thinking Boston game plans better for him. Guys like Spicy P and FVV have big games.. also late game maybe play both PF from clips? Idk thoughts

    I think if you’re reducing exposure because of who is reffing the game, you’re completely overthinking. That’s just me. If someone gets ejected, I’ll live with it.

    To me Lowry’s game isnt the kind of game you can “plan for”

    Pushing tempo, transition 3’s lots of peripherals. They don’t general run plays for him besides the pick and roll which he crushes.

    Doubling him sure seems like putting to many resources into defending him. I don’t imagine they double him like Harden to get the ball out of his hands.

    IMO, but hey, Boston sure needs to do something, i could be proven wrong.

  • ScofieldReturns

    i wish the people saying lowry is a lock would have specified what site they are playing on. 9.2k on FD is a ton, and I played him the last 3. can we really play lowry for 9.2k?

    i think jokic plays, but the sprain is on his shooting hand…has to effect his jump shot enough i wouldn’t play him

    Lowry went 5-16 from the field last game and STILL SCORED 55.25 FPTS

    I think fading Lowry (at least on DK) at this point is just being stubbornly contrarian — differentiate your lineup elsewhere IMO
