    I just don’t understand all these projections love for vanvleet..This dude has been garbage. They were even talking about how bad he has been on Sirius XM and that some people think he is really playing hurt.

    If you’re using projections for playoff NBA….thanks for the donations. It’s a feel game now lady and gents.

    I don’t know. Monkeys at a typewriter sort of thing. Some of the projections are obviously way off on every slate.

    Looks like they slapped the monkey off they typo-generator & straitened it out

    FVF is now proj 8 pts

    no they will have days where both conference finals fall on the same day or 2 day slates where its one game and then the next the day after.

    There will be 2-day slates, but according to the schedule on ESPN, there’s one game each day from here on out.

    have great JE LU & a bad JE LU

    Like the home teams today, but think the Blazers have a better chance to pull off an upset than the Sixers. Will Stotts go back to playing Aminu and Harkless big minutes, or look for more offense with Hood and Collins again?

    So hard for me to roster Hood but I’ll have him in a few of my Yahoo lines. I have a lot of Collins which scares me for some reason. Just never know with Stotts. Hard to get away from Harkless on FD at 4k, if he comes out playing well he has a chance to smash value. It’s also possible he plays 15 minutes & gives me 5 FD pts lol. Enough with the Blazers, all in on Kawhi, Jokic, & Murray.

    I’ve been playing Harkless and Aminu way more than Hood or Collins, but have to rethink that after last game. Always worry about Collins getting into foul trouble because he’s so aggressive, but Harkless is a risk for that as well.

    Same, especially Aminu. Complete fade of him today, watch him drop a 40 burger.

  • callmetouch

    Ibaka or Hood? If you have to play one. Ibaka is always a dice

  • RatedDAL

    I just don’t trust the Portland bench guys on the road in a Game 7. Hood feels like a dud incoming and Collins minutes falling back into the teens incoming.

  • ripking

    I have 6700 on Dk, both of my options are awful Simmons or lowry.. UGH.. Who will suck less?

  • klemi96

    Is jokic going to score 25+ real points or not?

  • rolukoya

    For GPP, Harris/Collins or Barton/Kanter?

  • tmarohl

    @gaelicgirl said...

    In before tmarohl says he ain’t scared LOL – of course GS would be favored.

    I’m not scared yet. First off, both teams would have to make it to the finals. Will also need to see who is healthy for both teams. If they played today, I would take Bucks in five. If Durant is healthy, probably goes to a game 7. I would favor the Bucks, but tough to go against GS with all of their championship pedigree. The homer in me though, says Bucks can and will beat them. Probably a good thing I don’t bet on games like yisman does.

  • Element828

    I don’t hate the idea of fading Leonard and Jokic. Yes they will most likely have great games but think of the savings you get paying down to Siakam and Millsap. Not saying they both outscore Leonard and Jokic but if you can get around or more 40fpts from each of them then I don’t think fading Leonard or Jokic will hurt you that bad in less both go for 70-80 fpts lol

    I’ll have one balanced lineup for this reason

    Kanter and the fasting thing is REAL. It IS affecting Kanters ability and stamina and I think we’ll see another 22-24 minutes from Collins tonight. If you project a high scoring game, he might not be a bad captain again since the studs will all eat.

    Jokic has gotten a lot of flak for his conditioning and…um, physique…but I’m inclined to agree with this assessment: “Jokic has a Ferrari engine in the body of a freshly opened can of buttery bake-at-home biscuits…a doughy wunderkind.” LOL
    But seriously, if he can avoid foul trouble he could put up 25 real points. Maybe he won’t, but in an elimination game at home there’s no way I’m not taking the dynamic duo of Murray-Jokic tonight.

    tonight = this afternoon, really. Don’t like these early games, basketball should only be played at night!

    Haha fair enough. If both teams make it to the finals, KD should be fully healthy by then. There’s a possibility that Boogie would be healthy enough to play, too…he’s chomping at the bit to get back.

  • Ap1216

    Today im playing mccollum instead of dame after ive been riding dame so make sure to fire up dame in your lineups

  • superjon

    Got 1 Joker and 1 Kawhi

  • superjon

    Possible slate breakers by position

    PG – Lowry
    SG – Morris
    SF – Reddick
    PF – Ibaka
    C – Kanter

    I hope Boogie is back, that makes GS worse and takes shots away from KD, Steph and Klay.
