    Am I the only one that thinks Toronto has a shot in this series? Cleveland has not exactly been playing well the last 6 weeks. They could have very easily lost game 1 at home to Indiana. Game 2 was relatively close at Cleveland. Game three Cleveland was losing by like 26 and made an epic comeback. Game 4 was relatively close. I think Toronto has significantly more weapons than Indiana has. Toronto also plays defense. Indiana does not. If Cleveland plays like they did against Indiana I could very easily see Toronto taking this to a seven game series.

    i think they have maybe a 25-30% shot of winning the series. not favorites, but far from impossible.

    I think Toronto loses a couple games in similar fashion. close finishes. when LeBron is in the zone he is in the zone. and I am not a fan of him

    When did it become a fact that Tucker can Guard Lebron? lol Are we hoping on this or is this proven?

    I posted some stats earlier but no one paid attention. With Tucker on him in their last 5 match ups, Lebron has only exceed 29 real points once and only had one double double. That’s the Cliff Notes version.

    Someone earlier said C was a crap shoot tonight. I would say tonight’s SG’s are all crap. The thing will be finding one that at least goes 3.5 or 4X don’t you think. Hard to believe these are Pros playing at this position. Also talking DFS.

    harden? derozan?

    Derozan’s floor is probably 40. Then I expect at least decent games from Gordon, Lou and even Manu for a cheapie. Of course Harden is SG eligible on DK so not sure why you think SG is crap tonight.

    Back in about page 2 or 3 of this thread someone posted some stats.

    I see several shooting guards on both sites that I like. The only ones I don’t like are on Cleveland. JR Smith is on my only roster if absolutely necessary list, because he is just a bad basketball player. Korver doesn’t get enough minutes to be of any value. The Kid N Play guy sucks as well.

    I dont see any stats saying Lebron played PJ on Toronto since hes been traded. Are you referring to when he was on the Suns? PJ was traded 2/23

    Are you referring to against the Suns? Because Lebron has not played against PJ since hes been on Toronto

    I should have mentioned outside of the obvious two harden, Derozan.

    I think they were all games when he was on the Suns. Not my stats so I don’t know. I just know that PJ is a good defender and is capable of slowing Lebron down a little. Biggest reason I am not playing Lebron much is I think Kawhi is a much better value, especially on FD. On DK I have much more Lebron exposure than I do on FD. With that said, if I had to choose on DK between Harden and Lebron, I would take Harden.

  • mike42

    If Manu gets 16-18 mins tonight at a point a min which is being generous he hits value. He needs to have an outlier game to hit 6-7x value, which is entirely possible for him, but I’d give it a 1 in 4 chance coupled with about a 1 in 2 chance he misses value.

    well only 4 teams are playing. just about every position is crap if you ignore the top 2 options at each

  • darkknight24

    I have a gut feeling Dedmon starts tonight. He matches up very well with Capella.

    true.. thank you! … I think I’m just going to wing it go Frye as my one low guy hopefully 5 rebounds and 2 3’s lol

  • P0key

    Anyone else stuff Kawhi harden and LBJ in a LU on FD? I feel like its my best one out of the 3 i’m playing.

  • Morty24

    If your not playing either LeBron or kwai at sf tonight, who can you plug in assuming Powell gets the start. Do you roll with Powell because he is a +40 when on the floor for tor and perhaps hits that 30 min mark. Or is the safer bet is to roll with ariza knowing he’ll get his 40 min and pray and hope he shows up this series

  • JBilger21

    Beverley or Parker for a mid-range PG on DK?

    its my only one and I feel good about it.

  • 2incher

    All the Dedmon on FD?

    Did one like that out of 25, but I think it will be my lowest scoring lineup.

    To make that work you have to play punts like Deron Williams, Ginobli, Frye, etc.

    Even if Kawhi, Harden and Lebron get you 180, you are probably looking at another 6 guys who will be hard pressed to get you 100.
