    Our offense has actually been great this series, it’s really just our inability to stop the Clippers in 2 or 3 crucial 4-5 minute stretches that have prevented a sweep.

    Agree, if they bring less than a Game 3 level of defensive intensity tonight I may throw something at the TV LOL

    Can’t imagine a scenario where they allow PatBev to grab 14 rebounds again, that was entirely unacceptable.

    seems Clip’s rotation modification last 2 games (going smaller) leaves him in rebounding position more often w/ more minutes?

    Is game 6 Klay still a thing

    Mckinney is a wild card if the rotation gets shaken up. You can roll with him, Livingston or Temple as a punt, I think.

    IF former Utah star Bogut (same alumni as Poeltl & Notorious) sees loses a dozen or more then I think it get distributed amoungst:

    Iggy (if he’s not already maxed out @ 27mins)
    Looney (Looney & Iggy’s per 36 drops 2-4 pts sans Boogie & Bogut vs LAC)
    McKinnie -! wild card!
    & 0-2 minutes for big 4

    welll… he’s done it @ least twice before?

    LAC smaller rotation change since start of game 4 gives him slightly better output in dK over Dray

    Could be, would like to see the Dubs limit him to 18 mins again like they did in Game 3. Early foul trouble or whatever it takes, that pest needs to watch Game 6 from the bench LOL

    Don’t expect to see much of Bogut this game, as the Dubs will probably go smaller as well.

  • telestraightshooter

    significant home/road splits:
    SGA is 50% better @ Staples
    Gallinari is 16% on road

    not a direct correlation but I think Galli handles ball more on road w/ SGA’s bad splits.

    I wonder if the NBA is still operating under their old David Stern model of specific instructions to ref crews to emphasize certain rules as the series progresses?

    in other words, the NBA & their TV biz partners have financial interest in extending playoff series in general?
    OF course they do.

    Oh, it might create controversy, but that puts more eyes to the screen.

    Iggy or Shamet?

  • samuri8

    I wonder if a 5-1 construction could win it tonight…I’m not brave enough to try though.

  • shades

    I used Iggy.I just can’t trust Shamet.What about SGA or J Green?

    I got one w Lou as my only Clipper. Doing 7 $15 DK LUs. Captains: Durant (3), Bev (1), Klay (1), Lou (1), Dray (1). Lots of Durant, Dray, Gallo, Bev, and Livingston.

    GL – only 4 more hours!

    it won game 3…. but then the clips pulled their starters in Blowout mode.

    there is no tommorow for blowout mode

    How many spots do you get for showdown LUs on DK?

  • telestraightshooter

    @ASitar said...

    Iggy or Shamet?

    Iggy has better floor, Shamet suffers in new rotation

  • telestraightshooter

    @gaelicgirl said...

    6
    1 is captain spot @ 1.5 salary & 1.5 multiplier

  • samuri8

    6, captain is 1.5x points for 1.5x salary. Paying up at captain has generally been far and away the best play in the playoffs so far with a few exceptions.

  • telestraightshooter

    @shades said...

    .What about SGA or J Green?

    J Green if you want a floor of 24 Dk pts (& not much more for 24 mins)

    65% SGA is over 24 pts
    33% SGA is under 24
    02% SGA = 24

    Ive played alot of showdowns, i have to agree i generally like using a contrarian captain but for the most part paying up seems to be the right play.

    Not sure what you mean exactly, but I think it’s as simple as the fact that role players aren’t going to go off very often like they do routinely during the season. The playoffs are when the the stars come out as the talking heads say.

  • gaelicgirl

    Wow, FD and DK single game contests are really different. You only get 5 spots on FD with 3 different multipliers – MVP 2x, STAR 1.5x, PRO 1.2x – and don’t have to pay extra for any of them, but everyone is insanely expensive already.

    Oh interesting…that should limit the number of ties for first place. Last might DK had a 60 way tie for first….I think tonight most people will pay up for Durant in the captain spot which is probably the right move and there will be a ton of ties again.

    In one of the contest I was in yesterday 1 took 3k I think then a 100 place tie for second getting 400. I think it was the second half contest.
