    I’m assuming who played last game is who gets the mins this game. I’m giving Drummond 30 and Gasol the rest. Even if I’m wrong 10 mins of Harrell isn’t getting it done I dont think

    Drum could get 18 though too and that makes me nervous to play any LA C not named Davis (was going to say AD buuuut). I like JVal to smash if he gets 32+ minutes and Looney to crush his price tag (I think he plays 30 minutes).

    Bazemore or Poole?

    I’m thinking AD plays center for much of this game.

    Draymond will be guarding him.

    Who you got winning tonight honest assessment no bias towards your team

  • Brendan239

    Monk and Bitadze were in the winning LU. Bane, Melton, Mills, Gay all COULD put up 30. Count no one out that could play 25 minutes because of an injury or foul trouble.

    Don’t think they brought Drummond over for him to sit on the bench

    I’m expecting the Lakers to win but hoping the Dubs can pull off the upset. Would be okay with them ending up with the 8th seed and facing the Jazz in the first round rather than the Suns.

    Too slow and lumbering, IMO…and he can’t shoot like AD.

    Also…I think they brought Drummond over to spare AD from playing center until absolutely necessary.

    Do you think Drummond tries to bully ball then? Keep dray occupied on the boards?

  • NDNole

    Bazemore

    Hope so.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    The spurs got disrespected in pricing, 6.3 and 7k flat for murray and ddr🤣

    First game clearly is the better of the 2.

    Eubanks and gasol are the 2 “goga” candidates, although I’m locking in Jval🔒 him and jjj should have a nice feast on the spurs tonight.

    Like ja, don’t luv him.

    Poole, baze, jta are the dubs you want tonight, glass should go off, lebron will probly have 15 assists tonight, kcp and gasol other lakers i like.

    Getting the first game right is key obvisouly😁

    Draymond will be occupied with guarding AD.

    Thats why I think Drummond could have a nice game tonight and one of those 18 boards type games.

    I was thinking Looney too but if he can only get 20 in random meaningless games what is he gonna be like in this one.. unless he’s a guy who plays up but I have no idea. I just know I played a lot of him at value and he got the value but never really exceeded expectations.
    Of course one of those value guys could make a difference and I will probably enter him in one

    Maybe, but he can’t guard Steph.
    I think the Lakers will sell out with better, quicker defenders like KCP, Caruso and Schroder.

    Gotcha

  • WrathofKhaaan

    Gay and J Val or Wiggins and Anderson?

    Is Steph going to bust today? The sportsbooks think he is a better play than LeBron (42.5 PRA LeBron vs 48.5 PRA Steph). My initial thought was to build around Steph, but if the Lakers scheme him away and given his poor history at the Staples Center, it may make sense to fade him and pivot to Wiggins/Poole. Thoughts?

  • Brendan239

    The key to tonight will be picking the right Spur between Lonnie, Vassell, Johnson and Gay. 1 of them is going to 9x and you’ll need it.

  • monarch

    I am in the camp the Lakers scheme Steph with numbers and make Draymond the conduit for which the offense runs at the high post extended. If I were Vogel and I decided to make Draymond the guy I can assure you I would be getting Anthony Davis touches on every possession on the other end which the Warriors will at some point need to send Draymond help and then guys like KCP, Kuzma, Caruso, McLemore get tons of looks as the game goes on. Lakers would beat them in five if this was a series but in a one game scenario anything can happen.

    I like Johnson and Gay too. I am shying away from anyone who might play less minutes than them though. My only stars’n‘scrubs type lineups will be with the value centers. Otherwise, going balanced.
    edit:wrong post. on this one, Lakers do consider Caruso a great defender. And it looks like he had 20 min on Sunday. I have him in 1.

    It does make sense to fade Steph, he probably will bust today. The other guys will have to take over if they’re going to win. This is a prime opportunity for Playoff Draymond to put the team on his back and do everything.

    Think JTA will see good minutes, as well.

    9:30 EST you’ll either wanna go to bed because you don’t have Gay’s 35 burger or you’ll be excited for 10:00 because you got the right pieces. I wish they were both at 7:30.
