    I thought about entering the Alley Oop instead of doing 20 in $25 but there is no way i could stomach putting a Captain Crowder at that entry fee level

    I’m thinking he wont shoot 0% again

    I know what the Crowder lineup is. I’m going to have that minus the tank.

    I thought I knew a lot about the NBA.

    Orlando Magic is about to hire Mavs assistant Jamahl Mosley who I have never heard of.

    Yep

    My lineup fits exactly with the salary, there’s no way to really reorder it much, and I’m not even entering all the possibilities. So I am going to be in a 100 way tie for not even first place.

    Got a feeling we see more than 4 mins for Kaminsky. Saric injury happened abruptly and frank seen no pt in the playoffs. Got a feeling he gets more involved in rotation. He’s a steal at 1k if they try to get ayton in foul trouble. Def most upside in that range in my opinion.

    It doesn’t concern you that Kaminsky did not play at all in the second half?

    I do think he checks in for Ayton in this game and gets at least one rotation but the game will go small and when it does he won’t be on the floor to defend Giannis or any of the Bucks perimeter players.

    Sure. But he’s bone cheap and there’s a game script in which he can do very well. If ayton gets in foul trouble n Kaminsky comes in hot. He could certainly see more second half mins. He’s a streaky shooter who can heat up n can shoot 3

    It doesn’t concern me for a couple reasons.

    1 ) More than anything, I’ve seen 0’s in winning NBA showdown lineups.
    2 ) NBA finals are different, but we’ve seen in the past (no I don’t have a specific memory of a an instance) where player gets hurt mid-game. Misses the next game, and somebody that didn’t play the game before gets the minutes.

    Kaminsky has hardly played. Cold as it gets. With the day off, and I’m assuming some practice time yesterday or at least some shootaround time this morning, I would think they’d have him more prepared and comfortable for this game. Not that he’s going to get big minutes, but I could see him getting 8-10 minutes here. Hit a 3 or two and grab a board ortwo, and that might be enough.

    Definetly not out of the realm of possibility! Every game is different

  • monarch

    I suppose.

    Giannis played center the entire fourth quarter in Game 1. Ayton generally plays the first ten minutes of the 3rd Q. That leaves two possible Kaminsky second half minutes unless things change such as Ayton foul trouble. Nader and Craig can play small ball five verse a Portis or Giannis at the five.

    The Suns are so Paul and Booker centric at the moment…I don’t see Frank Kaminsky getting any usage other than an occasional corner three. They won’t be posting him up or anything like that.

    Anyone think the Bucks coach opts to play Giannis at the 5 for a majority of the game? He played quite a bit game 1, which would mean Brook might see less minutes, (I’m guessin’ 15-20) which could correlate to Forbes seein’ more minutes. Thoughts?

    I think Bucks would be wise to limit Lopez’s time. This matchup is better suited for ABC at the five and Portis at the four. I Put Lopez as my captain for the milly last game..he’s seeing 20 percent of my lineups this time around.

    Good luck…hopefully someone wins some money

    That’s what happened to me during game 1-I tied for 5th and quite a few spots below it too. I put in $186 and netted some money and got back $266. I could have had $1,200+ but there was someone on my lineup that the 1st place person didn’t have and I did which messed me up. I was off by .32 away from first and I had to split that $10,000 with all these people leaving me with very little.

    Good call man was sure we’d see atleast a lil frank. Guess not haha

  • yisman

    I used Frank :(

    He got 31 minutes against the Lakers and 7 minutes against the Nuggets. 0 against the Clippers.

    Mostly DNPs, of course, and this looks like another.
