    Wow there is really no more edges in these games…SMH

  • superjon

    TAking a stand and fading Draymond.

    Will have some of Curry and Klay together. Some Curry only and some Klay only.

    Mix in a little McKinnie and Looney and good to go.

  • WillyWongka

    Woke up to placing 1st in the $1 50K And-One on DK but realizing that I shared it with a lot of people.. 🙃

  • samuri8

    Looney will be super chalk no? For good reason though. Then you have to consider jerebko as well. How does this affect the rockets rotation? Does the temporary death of the hamptons 5 open up anything for Capela?

  • 8MileAllstars

    I was one of the people you shared it with. On a single bullet.

    A win is a win in my book so good job lol.

  • ASitar

    Gonna have to be rreeeeaaaallll creative tonight to have a unique LU. Kinda like the winner last night that won with Collins at Captain. Everyone will be on Dray, Steph and Harden. I’m thinking Klay might be a good Captain – he’s not been great (DFS-wise) in the playoffs, but watch him pop off for 40 real points. I’m going to do 6 LUs, but I’m going to be leaving $ on the table, using Captains w high ceilings w lower ownership, and fading some chalk. If it bites me and chalk wins tonight so be it. That’s how you split $50k 14 ways.

  • WillyWongka

    From 2K to $53.32 lol

  • monarch

    CPT Curry is hard to ignore with that CourtIQ data and most will probably not go there because they will try and fit in as many good players as possible.

  • ASitar

    What’s everyone think about Capella tonight? I think I’m going with him over Tucker, Gordon and Iggy. Last time Durant was out he got 40 minutes and a double double. My punt punt is Jerebko.

  • sherm812

    Who do you think becomes the sixth man for the warriors tonight. Jerebko bogut mckinnie or Livingston in terms of minutes?

    Do we even know who the fifth man is? Kinda hoping they go with Bogut to counter Capela.

    Idk…I think there’s an edge to the two game playoff slates.

    I think there might be an edge to a game 7 showdown (if it goes 7). Tonight feels like I’m making a lineup just to have some action on the game.

    That’s the question I have too. I could see the KD minutes going so many different ways tonight. I would lean toward Mckinnie and Livingston based on where the minutes off the bench have been coming from. Kerr seems down on Bogut with this Rockets matchup.

    Think McKinnie and Livingston still come off the bench. It’s true Bogut has barely sniffed the court this series, guessing that’s because Kerr wanted to go with the best defensive LU which was small except for KD. Now that KD’s out of the picture, I agree with ASitar that D’Antoni will probably try to play Capela more. Looney is better than Bogut at defending in space, and they’ve had him covering Harden at times. Bogut is taller and heavier than both Capela and Tucker, so it seems like they could use him to protect the rim against dunks and layups, but maybe I’m missing something.

    Bogut is more of a liability on p n r then looney. i could see jerebko getting minutes before Bogut.

    Thanks, you could be right about that.

    Harden is going to have a bananas game today. Elimination game, he will score minimum 40 points. Its Go big or go home for them. Unless he has a miserable shooting night he is gonna go crazy I think.

    I mean his entire career going back to college he has a long history of choking and being a huge disappointment when it matters most. Remember he got benched in the 4th quarter vs the Clippers in that epic Game 6 comeback by Josh Smith and Corey Brewer. He’s going to probably come up small again whether it’s tonight or Game 7. It’s who he is.

    Hard to dispute facts. What you say is pretty much the truth. But I have a feeling in Houston tonight he is going bonkers.
