    My 2 cents: I think a low combo will be Steph or Claw at C paired with the other. Prices are so high on everyone above Danny Green that having this combo will make it hard fit 4 players around them that you really want. I like Boogie and Gasol because of Boogie getting more minutes and like Ibaka less than usual. I like Lowry a lot and Cook as my punt. I’m trying to decide who I like more between Steph and Claw. I have Steph at C in 1 and 1 w Steph and no Claw.

    GL today.

    Kevon Looney Q. Could be a good punt if he starts at lower ownership if you don’t want to split (probably -EV play but +Variance). For as good as Cousins was last game offensively, he was still -4 because his shoes are stuck in mud on defense.

    I have a lineup I don’t hate with iggy as captain and Norman Powell as my punt.

    Idk about boogie. It feels like Kerr doesn’t want to play him much. Heck last game looney and bogut saw the court before he did.

    Dray/Cook or KlayDanny Green?

    Boogie has to play, they need his offense even though he’s a defensive liability. He was getting coached up by both Mike Brown and Kerr yesterday, he’ll probably get the start again.

    “We do it for Kevin.” – Klay

    Last dance at Oracle after 47 years is a big freaking deal for Dub Nation, it’s gonna be lit inside that arena tonight. Backs against the wall, think the Splash Brothers show out with a Game 6 Klay performance for the ages.

    I’m pretty invested in Cook (3/4 DK LUs). Can he get me to 15-20 DK points or is there a better guy in his price range w Durant out?

    I like Cook as a punt, don’t know if he’ll give you that many points. But think they’ll use him to space the floor, and he’s one of the role players they’ll need to step up and take shots tonight. I’ll take a look at DK prices.

    Yeah he will start but I wouldn’t be surprised if he only plays 20 minutes…he should be playing close to 30 but I feel like they are more inclined to playing bogut an looney and maybe some bell.

    He’d be my pick from the Warriors side, Powell from the Raptors side for even less might be worth a punt, too. They played him instead of Siakam for the last 9 minutes of Game 5.

    You could be right, but Boogie has the highest ceiling of that group by far if he can avoid stupid fouls.

    Klaw was in every winning LU this series.
    He sported 95% overall ownership last game, so awesemo’s (60% + 17%) is in fact 18% low

    If you make multiple lineups you can gamble on some guys who may or may not see much time. Yet I’m not a big showdown player, and generally only make 1 or 2 lineups, and I’ve always done better in these showdowns by playing guys who I know will at least play decent minutes.

  • gaelicgirl

    Told my roommate the Warriors would probably get Marc “King of the Road” Davis tonight

    Sure enough. This is…not good.

    I’m actually skeptical about the crowd. All the die hards have been priced out for the past couple of years and this being the last game there they sure as hell will be priced out. All those rich fans are lax as hell. They care more about taking their phones out or drinking then watching the game and then they’ll leave early in the 4th quarter. Not to mention they might not even have all the seats full because it’s a week day and the game starts during awful Bay Area rush hour traffic.

    I wouldn’t recommend it mostly because in a close out situation for Toronto/elimination game for GS, teams are far more likely to have super tight rotations.

    I hear you, and it’s going to be even worse when they move across the Bay. It was appalling to see so-called fans leaving early, that never would have happened before games became a place to be seen. Just hope there are enough OG fans still left to see the Warriors off in style…pretty sure there will be some loud “Refs you suck!” chants tonight LOL

    Honestly it’s going to be a travesty if the entire crowd’s not chanting “WARRIORS! WARRIORS!” the entire game. That’s how you’ll know there’s not enough OG fans there lol.

    I keep ending up with Boogie in all my lineups.Scary Do you guys think leaving Dray out of my lineups is stupid?Been using Klay with Curry and Kawhi.Hoping Mckinnie gets a few more minutes with Durant out.

  • telestraightshooter

    Last 2 games (Klay in starting LU) and sans KD, GsW score 1.92 real pts per min = per48 of 92.

    That’s 14 pts lower over last 12 weeks of 106.7 per48 when KD off floor.

    If GsW overcomes ToR defensive repressiveness, they have a good chance; otherwise……
