    I’m playing him again, but hoping for a different outcome. Insanity? Maybe. First game I thought he’d neutralize Harrell, but foul trouble prevented that. So not playing Harrell again, hoping Boogie avoids foul trouble and the Clips keep leaving him open.

    IDK… I think when Harrell is in and play the 5 and Lou pushes the pace DMC cannot be on the court.

    Part of it is DMC, part of is Kerr. You know better than me that Kerr doesn’t keep his C on the court much…. sure, DMC isn’t Zaza or Bogut, but is just that he likes a certain kind of movement and versatility

    I think we have payoff Dray that has a pretty high floor. One between Steph and KD will eat, but they cannot both have great games. Klay should bounce back, but the Clippers always seemed to give him trouble.

    Leaning Steph/Dray/Gallo/Lou/Montrezl stack

    I think that fading embiid or steph is pointless. There’s not better pivots at the prices, so if you do it, you’re hoping for an absolute catastrophe in order for them to have someone else outscore them in a way that matters. Try to come up with a non bucks-style blowout scenario where embiid doesn’t get 50+ points if he plays, or Steph around the same (let’s call it 40 as his probably floor).

    I think that Steph and KD can both have absolutely huge games in the playoffs, especially if you think there will be longer stretches where they sit Boogie. And especially at Durant’s price tag.

    You’re correct. At 8k he doesn’t need 60… and I agree Steph and him can combine for 100

    Making 3 LUs tonight, will have Lou/Montrezl in one just in case they kill Boogie again.
    Steph/KD must plays for me, though.

  • RipCityRings

    I’m building most lineups with the expectation that GS murders the Clips. Gallo’s history vs the Warriors is terrible, SGA’s only good at home, and Beverley is helpless against Steph. If GS manages to contain Lou/Harrell even 10% better than G1 this should be over by the 3rd.

    I’m stacking BKN/PHI tonight, but will go back to Lou & SGA for Game 3.

    Embiid being limited to 12 minutes tonight if I read this right.

  • Potsmoke

    Embid in according to FD

    Are they creditable?

  • shades

    Ed Davis (ankle) is good to go for Monday’s Game 2 vs. the 76ers, according to sources of Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Davis played a crucial role in the Nets’ Game 1 win, posting a 12-point, 16-rebound double-double in 25 minutes off the bench, and he should see a similar workload tonight.

    BBM is way more reliable, IMO…don’t really trust FD.

    Thanks for that, saw on my TL that it was Embiid.

    Edit: they retweeted/changed Labs’ Ennis tweet and changed it to Embiid. Shady.

  • sox9

    still no news on Embiid even though he has a starting green check on FD. FD has screwed me before.
