    O/U splash mountain ownership? I’m thinking 80%

    Pretty high as his priced didn’t really move.

    1 LU tonight w Klay @ C and 4 Trailblazers. Last night sucked. No Lowry or Lopez.

  • sox9

    Bledsoe started to come a live a little bit. More aggressive, still not hitting the 3-pt., but more involved and more minutes (30) . On the FD THur-FRi slate he is still 5500 vs. Lowry @ 6900. I have LU w/Bledsoe and one w/Lowry. The GPP pivot would be to use both and fade Curry at 70% or so ownership. Thoughts? And if you keep Curry would you pair him w/ Bledsoe or Lowry? BTW, I cede all my discussion of Lopez to Tmarohl after last night. I was wrong.

    I was skeptical of Lopez last night, too…my Wed-Thu LUs will pay the price LOL
    So has Dame suddenly become persona non grata against the Warriors?

    No hope for a breakout game?

    I am eating crow on Lopez big time. The other thing that really dumbfounded me was how Ibaka only got 17 minutes when he has murdered MILW all year. I think playing all the starters except Green 40 minutes+ was a mistake vs. a team w/ a week’s rest and coming off an emotional win vs. PHL.

    Plus Ibaka during his short time was contributing in every category and had some wide open looks.

    Put some ketchup on it, it’ll go down easier. Coach Bud won the strategic battle last night by resting his starters in the 3rd quarter so they’d be fresh for the 4th, just when the Raptors were running out of gas. Nurse will make adjustments for Game 2, I’m sure. He’s got to find a way to rest Kawhi more during the game, but I understand his reluctance to risk letting the Bucks get out to a big lead. Agree that Ibaka needs to get more run, Gasol is too old to chase BroLo around all game.
    It was a fun game to watch, kind of sad that the Raptors weren’t able to capitalize on Lowry’s great game.

    I $$$ the other night 327th place with harkless as cap kanter klay dray steph and lillard. Im not gonna say my whole lu but i do not have harkless tonight.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    Anyone know why dk gives $105,555 to first for tor vs mil, but just the flat $100k for the por vs gs series?

  • ASitar

    Might be switching my single bullet up. Dray or Klay? I think I am going Sray and my LU doesn’t allow both. I feel Dray has trip dub potential and Klay is due for one of his 30 DK points games. I know with Durant put Klay steps up, but he is so scoring dependent and will be so highly owned.

    I think the adjustment that Toronto will make is they will reduce Gasol’s playing time and increase Ibaka’s. That will take Lopez off the floor more. Bucks will then counter by starting Brogdon and having Mirotic come in off the bench. They were trying to have Gasol protect the rim and cover Brook on the outside. That obviously didn’t work.

    Any Jerebko takers tonight?Too many cheap options

    Kanter or Iggy?

    Kanter is fine. He was too cheap two nights ago. He’s proved where he should be and you’ll prob need his 42 points

    On the two day slate, Kanter, Bledsoe and Lowry all with $400 though…

    Kanter has solid floor of low 30’s- ceiling in 40’s
    Iggy might get you 36, but has bad track rcd vs Blazers

    Klay has better matchup for dK fPts, & is cheaper.
    I dropped Dray in some of my $$ LU’s for cheaper PF/C combos

    I’m not convinced Kanter plays nearly as much tonight. Portland has to make rotation adjustments and he makes the most sense to replace. Like it was only a year or two ago that Stotts would limit Nurk’s minutes in matchups just like this one and Nurk is a lot better than Kanter.

  • Element828

    Yeah I would say Kanter is my favorite blazer. I worry about lillard and McCullom. Maybe one gets hot but I don’t feel safe paying up for them. Harkless and Hood I do like. Maybe some Collins…

    Warriors it’s all about Curry/Green/Thompson. If I had to fade one it would be Thompson in the hopes his shoot doesn’t fall, not sure about Iggy. I had him last game. But one value to look at is Quinn Cook. He’s got around 11 ftpts the last 2 games and if this game blows out he would get a lot of floor time

    Definitely mix in some Warriors bench guys. Kerr alluded after Game 1 that they’re going to play a lot more guys this series. Iggy is someone who could get less minutes. Not the most ideal matchup for him anyway and they don’t want to overwork him for the next round either.

    Yeah I watched last game and Iggy sat I sat half way through 1st qtr and didn’t return for a while.
