    I keep coming up with McKinnie fitting.Guess its a crap shoot.

    no and if he does he wont be any good but I doubt they risk him. I bet at raptors +5 I suspect by game time it is +1.5-2

    DIsagree.

    Even if Klay is out, GS will be at least -2.5

    McKinnie > Bell IMO

    McKinnie is the better defender so I expect him to play as much if not more than Cook if Klay out. Will have shares of both.

    Trying to decide between Bell and Bogut. Bogut looked good in his few minutes the other night but Bell more athletic and might be better fit. Plus Bell can play longer if Boogie in foul trouble.

    I’m about 80-90% on Bell. Figure he’s gotta get at least some minutes with Looney out, and he would benefit from foul trouble for Cousins and/or Bogut struggling. Plus, you don’t need much from him to pay off that $1.6K salary on DK. I have Bogut in a couple just in case he’s the main beneficiary or Looney being out, but I think either he or Bell will be the key value piece tonight. That could change if Klay is ruled out tonight, but I’ve made all my lineups so far with the assumption that he’s playing. I’ve left some blank for now in case he’s ruled out.

  • Agent47

    It’s hard for me to not like Danny Green tonight. A $1,400 price drop on DK has his price almost back to where it was in game 1. The 3-point attempts will be there. Just gotta knock down a couple with some defensive stats, and that should be enough at that price.

  • telestraightshooter

    sans Klay defense, the opportunity is there- except Lowery needs surgical thumb realignment after finals.

    His #s are down since he reDing’d it last series

    leave $1500 on teh table on FanDuel?

    The guy im struggling most with is Iggy. How much is he going to be slowed down tonight?

    ToR def won’t slow him down, he performed above expections in g#2.

    sans Klay, Iggy will have more DFS goodness headed his way

    It’s not uncommon in showdowns to succeed w/ $1.5k unallocated (or more!)

    I’ve got a few of those, but they’re all lineups with Lowry and no Siakam. I also have those same lineups, but with Siakam over Lowry and $0 left. Most of my lineups have either $0 or $500 left.

    Yea, I expect Siakam to outscore Lowry usually, but Lowry is def capable of putting up 40.

  • realphipps

    Way too much Serge, but he’s gonna blowup once in this series and I’m hoping it’s their first game on the road.

  • ASitar

    Danny Green @ C for a 35 burger?

  • miggs6876

    I’m really surprised that lots of you don’t like . Last game, he scored 40fpts. A banged up Klay and at home. They will need his scoring big time. I am all in on Dray, Curry, and Kawhi.

    I don’t trust either one especially on the road.

    Damn, that boy stubborn

    “Golden State officials prefer Klay Thompson sit out Game 3 to protect his sore hamstring for the rest of NBA Finals, but Thompson has continued to lobby them on playing tonight. Decision looms prior to tip.” – Woj

  • telestraightshooter

    NBA Radio: GsW training staff wants Klay to sit game#3……
    ….Klay has a disenting opinion…..
    …. Klay’s hammy has decided about game #3, but will be a revealed in classic GsW fashion – 15mins before lock.

  • sfguy21

    Are you guys actually going to roster Klay if he plays? I’m only doing 2 lineups and I don’t think I can take the chance on him either reinjuring his hammy or playing very limited minutes.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    @miggs6876 said...

    I hear you, and I def don’t have a ton of trust in Lowry, just playing different angles. I do think that Siakam is almost a lock to hit 30+. He had 29.1 last game despite being horribly inefficient with his scoring.

    I give you 100% chance Klay plays less than 5 mins and/ or fails to reach half of his 34 dK projection

    I’m avoiding the whole Klay/Cook/McKinnie/Jerebko mess and just putting Bogut in a few.

  • ASitar

    Correction: I have Cook in 1 (out of 8 DK LUs). I think he has a good chance at 20 minutes, but prob gets 15. Klay playing or not.

    I like McKinnie out of that group. He seems most likely to pick up 20 minutes if Klay is out or limited.
