    Well I gambled tonight..I didnt realize my night would be over at half time..Toronto really sucks. Ibaka destroying me and Frye going off.

    Oh well.

  • tmarohl

    Lowry and Lebron the only ones doing anything outside of Frye

    Lol I posted in the thread from two days ago (NBA 5/1) that JoVal actually benefits from going to the bench because his usage spikes. You can see that post in my history. He’s way better off as a bench player and not playing alongside Ibaka.

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Well…i had one week this year where basketball made sense to me…things clicked that first week or so of the playoffs…now my teams are back to complete and utter trash…oh well…

  • tmarohl

    Since DDR has zero that wouldn’t be very hard.

    I decided to try him and Lowry in a stack with Ibaka, just for the heck of it, figuring Derozan was the lowest risk. Yikes. Just glad I only threw a few bucks toward that lapse in judgment.

    who doesnt have more pts than DDR? lol

    Wait why is Gasol starting for the Spurs? He’s better than Lee and smarter in defending pick and rolls, but Aldridge better have a good game offensively to justify this because he’s going to be running around on the perimeter defending the Rockets stretch 4s.

    We shall see if that’ll work out. I still think Spurs should play Simmons more as a defender.

    No surprise Lee isn’t starting as I said earlier. He’s one of the worst defenders in the NBA, possibly worse than Enes Kanter. However, Lee actually gets a massive usage boost if he comes off the bench this way. However, since his minutes will be limited, it won’t really matter. He has more upside coming off the bench though.

  • MrPerfekt7

    Gasol or Capela?

    i decided to wait for the home game to gamble on the bounce back

  • KindGuy

    Is Derozan at SF or SG? Might explain his struggles if he’s matching up with Lebron.

    Phew… Glad I avoided that mine.

    He’s a SG, and he shouldn’t be defending Lebron that much. Usually Tucker does that. However, since they started small tonight with Powell, it could be the case he sees more Lebron.

    Oh, so JVAL just gonna hit 100% of his shots today

    Lol so glad i picked him haha. That regression baby lol. J val is playing the best he can and his teammates are letting him down. Its too bad. Derozan is missing EVERYTHING.

  • superstars92

    Looks like Derozan just sucks considering he just missed 2 FTs, so it even like a LeBron thing.

    I don’t get why the Raptors don’t just start Tucker and match him on LeBron to start the game?

    I have a feeling once they lose this game, they are going to do that. Or Casey will just bench Ibaka for JoVal and start Tucker for Powell too.

    It won’t matter. He can do whatever combo he wants, they will be lucky to lose 4-2 like last year.
