    what chance in % does Ibaka play?

    “Felt different when I woke up” and “walking boot” are not things that bode well for playing. They have to win the next two, I’d imagine they’ll hold him out.

    25% ?

  • Kemba and jaylon vs tatum and smart dk? Probly just put both lineups in.

    For sure — have them both in small tournies. I usually do 1x of a 220 or 550$ and throw my best lineup there, so that’s where i’m trying to decide(The 550) — don’t wanna do two 555$ a day currently on a 2 game slate

    Any TOR fans have insight into the Boucher V RHJ Debate too? Much appreciated

    I’m not a Toronto fan but I wouldn’t play either one

    I’m trying really hard to build as if Ibaka is out and jamming in a bunch of Gasol. Does the lumbering Spaniard have the ability/stamina/ability to avoid fouls required for him to eclipse 25 FD fpts? I want him too, but I can’t convince myself he will. Anyone locking Gasol if Ibaka out?

    Yes. Not locking but I definitely see a path for 35 mins if Ibaka is out

    35!

    Most likely going small.

    Thanks GG… I mean Brendan239. You want double or nothing OG over 42.2 FD points again?

    They will do both. Powell is in play also

    In a win or go home scenario, I think Nurse will turn to RHJ because of his flexibility on defense. Boucher is the better rim protector, but it seems to me Boston is thriving in space, not at the rim.

    Ibaka has been a big reason why. Im guessing Boucher. If you think RHJ also consider Lob Williams in play, it was Ibaka who was stopping that too.

    Looking back on the minutes when Ibaka was out last (Aug. 10,12,14), RHJ played 26, 25, 22 min. Gasol played 20, 19, 17. Boucher played 29, 22, 22… Keep in mind that OG was also out for the last 2 of those games. Aug. 10 – beat the Bucks (without Giannis), Aug. 12 – beat the 76ers (without Simmons and only 14 min from Embiid), Aug. 14 – beat the Nuggets (Nugs starters only played first half, Lowry nor FVV played at all). With all of that said, I’m not locking Gasol in. He’s cheap, but doesn’t seem to get enough usage and/or time on the court to put up quality numbers anymore.

    i only make 1 LU and use it in everything, more profittable to only have 1 LU for cash

    I never play cash, yet from what they tell me your right.


    Sorry I posted this gif in response to Brendan posting “I don’t have a life.“ And it was erased, as it was without content, so I figured I’d give it another go with some content. 😉

    Haha – he’s getting the minutes, but I’ll only have OG in 2/10. BTW-what’s your Venmo?

    It’s a must win game. You aren’t gonna see RHJ, Boucher, and T. Davis out there. Most likely a very similar rotation that we saw in game 4. Give 10 more mins to Gasol, 10 more to Powell and the last few to Thomas

    5 of those games were when CP3 was still there (who Foster seems to take issue with)

    The other two was against the best team in the league (when healthy) and Luka Doncic!

    Ibaka was about a -5000 when he was on the floor, that is why they have been trying other things.

    You can’t judge anything based on those early bubble games. Toronto wasn’t playing for anything. They were just running a deep rotation to keep everyone fresh and rested.

    MPJ/Wana or Milsap/Monte?? FD

    I posted my thoughts on the Raptors earlier in the thread but i’ll recap again.

    Raptors need a win, they will essentially run two lineups.

    Lowry, FVV, OG, Siakam, Gasol
    Lowry, FVV, Powell, OG, Siakam

    You’ll see some mixing and matching of players but don’t expect many minutes for Boucher, RHJ and whoever else crap bench guy that hasn’t been in the rotation all playoffs. Boucher got minutes last game because of the blowout along with the rest of the bench. Prior to the 4th quarter, he played approximately 3:30.

    Norm probably plays 30-32 minutes tonight, Gasol plays 25-28 and the rest of the starters get mid 40s. Ibaka was playing 20-22 minutes a night.

    OG 38
    Siakam 38
    Gasol 25
    Powell 30
    Other 25

    Fair? Or downgrade other

  • Idk which one i hate the most- og, gasol, or suckiam, one of them gotta go.

  • ScofieldReturns

    have 3 raptors now, makes me nervous because im expecting the raptors to lose and for it to be a grindfest

    but those high minutes in a close out are really hard to get away from
