    Let’s see if Booker and Ayton got enough rest. Played 29 and 24 minutes in the last 5 days.

  • Wsdm61987

    Do the Suns play small or does Kaminsky finally enter the fold for more than 15 minutes?

  • clrockny24

    I think if you put Cam Johnson or Connaughton at captain on dk you can make a decent lineup. Pricing is tight there.

  • NDNole

    Captain booker seems high upside to me today at low captain ownership. Of course he could just have a soso game but I think he makes it worth the risk.

  • WrathofKhaaan

    Kaminsky got the majority of his minutes because of Ayton foul trouble, Kaminsky’s +- when he’s on the court is awful. If Ayton can avoid foul trouble tonight he’s a great play. Overweight on Chris Paul, I like him a lot at CPT tonight. Feels like this might be the game Middleton finally breaks out.

  • EnglishPea

    Any sense in fading Giannis? At least that way you can fit 4 legit players in there and hope he only has a modest stat line?

    No i think you start with Giannis unless you think he gets hurt

  • brink7

    What 2 player correlations do you recommend avoiding? For example I know not to play Ayton and Kaminsky because it is doubtful they would both have a good game. Like Kaminsky could only have a good game if Ayton was in foul trouble injured etc. What other two player negative correlations would everyone here recommend avoiding? Thank you in advance.

    Payne/Paul comes to mind. Giannis/brook. I think you just need to build a game scenario in your head and build off of that. Bucks blowout you want Giannis and one of jrue/khris with bench players. Close game you probably want Giannis/one of khris or jrue and at least one of cp3/Kendall’s boyfriend/Ayton

    There is a free correlation tool available on the internet that takes guessing out of the equation on a rival site.

  • Rickytango13

    Assuming he doesn’t get hurt, is there any way Giannis isn’t optimal whether cpt or util? I just can’t see it

    I think you are right. I think they will adjust slightly….wall Giannis up a little better which should free up the corner shooters is my assumption. I’d rather have PJ Tucker or Pat Connaughton shooting threes than Giannis putting Ayton on the bench if I am Monty Williams.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    I don’t see abc as being the optimal capt tonight, but i don’t see fading him as logical unless you think he gets injuried.

    I’m 50% captain Giannis. He is in my current optimal. Going 100% on FD at the MVP spot again

  • bdf

    Banking on Crowder having his once in a blue moon 45 DK game.

  • FlyingArmBar4u

    Yea I think bucks win tonight and the suns win the next 2 at home , so I’m going heavy on the bucks, probably 1, 2, and 3 and then 2 cheap suns in my utility spot

    Crowder shot 86% last game and only had 32, I think you’ve basically seen his ceiling this series unless his volume suddenly doubles. I think this is where you fade him.

  • RipCityRings

    I’ve only been playing one lineup per game but I can’t resist throwing in a CPT Booker after that Game 3 performance.

    Ayton was one rebound shy of the double-double in only 29 minutes, I expect a 45 spot tonight. No way Monty is going to keep Frank out there again.

    Another fun angle is building for a CP3 alpha game. If he gets back to 20ish FGAs he’s in a great spot, and he missed the double-double bonus with by only 1 assist in 2/3 games (and 2 assists in Game 2). I see Jrue struggling in this scenario, which makes Teague an interesting speculative play with the Bucks likely staying small.

    Also love Craig tonight, he had some rough rim-outs and missed FTs last game but should have his sea legs back and is still dirt cheap.

    I honestly wouldn’t mess with him. The Bucks rarely if ever messed with him during the post season. I’ve learned my lesson 3 years ago and since then not to use him after the regular season. He’s now a bench warmer.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    Dk:
    Capt-Ayton
    Abc
    Kris
    Bridges
    Connaughton
    Tucker

    Fd:
    Mvp-Ayton
    Star-Abc
    Pro-Kris
    Bridges
    Tucker

    I took cp3 and craig out which I’m sure will cost me.

    I’m tied to Ayton!!!

  • RipCityRings

    CPT Ayton
    Giannis
    Booker
    Jrue
    Johnson
    Craig

    CPT Booker
    Middleton
    CP3
    Ayton
    Pat C
    Teague

    I’m probably a game early on Booker, but had to take a shot at only 6% CPT. Can’t imagine there are too many CPT Booker, no Giannis + Teague lineups out there.

  • siddom

    clicked middletons name after staring at my screen for an hour instead of cp3….wow. @ first i thought dk was focking with me but it was really me.

  • Skee

    Best I could do with Ayton is Star. On FD its really hard to not just build 4 spots with Giannis at cpt. I have tried this series and had scores like I was short an entire player. I can see the appeal if running multiple lineups, like 3% Ayton but I already threw enough away trying it

  • monarch

    Ayton is so good. Does he remind anyone else a little of Karl Malone with his face up and mid range game plus finishing around the rim?

  • yisman

    I faded Booker. Oops. 20+ in the first half after resting the second half last game.
