    Ben Simmons – rookie on road in Miami, heat defense good contender to contain him

    Kevin Durant – on road vs a team playing with their hearts on their sleeves for their coach. It may be hard to get up for this game if you’re the warriors. Spurs defense good contender to adjust and contain Durant.

    Anthony Davis – at home….no one on blazers can stop him…most likely to not be in blowout among top 3 guys.

    Spurs….Blazers….Pelicans…..olynyks birthday

    I could see a lot of people thinking Durant and Simmons are needed and thinking they can make their lineup unique via looney or McGee or bam adabeyo…I’m going to go a different route…mid cost guys with cheap Spurs and then 1 star. But Aldridge is rly good too i bet

    How much is he on DK? Just curious.

    $10.9, followed by Durant at 10.3 and Simmons at 10.2

    Spurs did play much better at home than on the road this season, but Warriors played as well on the road as at home. KD is shooting ~52% from the field in the first two games of the playoffs, and scored more FD points in the second game than the first. Not saying he’s a lock or anything, but who on the Spurs is going to stop him? If they do manage to contain KD somehow, don’t sleep on Klay, who’s averaging 70% from the field and 71% from downtown over the first two games. Like your takes on Simmons and AD, though.

    So how do we attack the Embiid situation? Build lineups as if he’s not going to be available or wait until tipoff to see what they say? Seems risky to wait… Unless they come up with an answer before lock.

    Anyone on DK paying up for AD?

    Absolutely, I think he’s easily the best value over $7500

    LOL that’s an easy choice, then. I can’t believe how cheap players are on DK compared to FD.

    Don’t you get $10,000 LESS $ on DK than FD? I mean, that’s a reason right there…….

    It’s the first game, so we should hopefully have some clarity prior to lock, but as of now I’m definitely proceeding as if he’s not playing.

    Yeah, but you have 10K less cap to work with, but also only 8 spots to fill as opposed to 9 on FD. If you are paying up for one superstar on DK, I think the choice is rather obvious between Davis, Durant and Simmons at those prices. Glass can put up an 80 spot, more likely 65 or so, where I think the ceilings for Durant and Simmons are much lower.

    Yea 70% from 3 seems sustainable lol

    I’m thinking we get a Paul pierce like performance from dwade lol

  • ushook

    Playing klay is never a bad idea since you’re not chasing.

    He is guaranteed to hit 25-30 FPs, with a chance of getting to 35.

    Sign me up.

    Yeah, but he’s quite a bit cheaper on DK than FD. Much more so than Simmons, Durant, Lillard or Aldridge.

    Some of it has to do with the different scoring. AD is projected more on FD (blocks and steals), while the others are projected more on DK. Even so, AD is much more of a value on DK than FD tonight IMO. On FD, I like him and Simmons pretty evenly.

    Yeah, yeah…there was much scoffing when I said Iggy wasn’t “washed” but was saving himself for the playoffs, too. And if Klay ever shoots like that I’ll eat my Warriors sweater. ;-)

    I don’t think you should ever start with Klay, but if he fills that final spot. Yeah go got it
