    depth used to be Toronto’s strength but it’s just been so bad this series

    Nurse doesn’t even trust guys to play. He’s been running a 6 man rotation most of the series.

    so Embiid is 100% I suppose and doesn’t need a little extra rest?

    No, Embiid is out of shape and needs more minutes to improve his conditioning.

  • dragon1952

    Why not let Harris get one more rebound for the double-double in a blow out :^ /

    yeah, Doris point that out about 10-15 minutes ago 9 total points from the TOR bench, all Ibaka. Currently, still 9 points from the bench. Lack of depth is why TOR cannot win it all.

    If that is your theory, then the only teams that can win it all would be Milwaukee or Denver, because they are the only teams with any depth remaining.
    GS has no depth, with Durant out
    Houston has no depth
    Philly has no depth
    Portland has a little depth

    The thing is, so many of these series are opponent dependent. Some guys just don’t match up well against certain teams. Milsap is a great example of that. Sucked last series and has been killing it this series. A guy like Brook Lopez had a bad matchup against Horford in this series, but would probably have a dream match up against a team like GS. Guys like Marcus Morris and Serge Ibaka always do well against the Bucks, but are non factors against other opponents.

    That is my theory, unless Durant makes it back some how

    Brogdon back makes MILW really deep.

  • gaelicgirl

    Got Jokic at ~33% owned in all my FD contests again, mind blown LOL

    Now the question is whether Barton can play like Barton from a year ago.

    I wish they could get Pau Gasol back on the floor from his ankle ailments. Not that I think he is any good or very useful, but I would like the 6 extra fouls at the C position against guys like Marc Gasol, Embiid or Jokic.

    Gonna be another night i play dame and mccollum matches his production for 2000 salary less

    He’ll be back if they beat Houston.

    I don’t know whether it’ll be for Game 1 of the WCF or later but it’s not a long term injury. 1-2 weeks.

    Keep in mind Boogie and Lee are also close to returning

    I think Boogie coming back is a smoke screen. I hope he does come back, because GS is a worse team when he plays.

  • sox9

    MIllsap and Hood

  • sox9

    I really like this Zack Collins. He deserves 30 minutes a game.

    he went back in with and did nothing but get a foul. he had a shot but didnt get it.

  • DC2380

    Seth definitely wasn’t the play

  • damionismyname

    Aminu and Harkless taking a back seat to Hood and Collins right now. smh

  • samuri8

    I don’t have a lot of Aminu but I guess he has been cast aside?

  • damionismyname

    @samuri8 said...

    not sure why but Collins and Hood were playing well so the coach just kept them in I guess.

    I think Collins is gonna be real good another year or two down the road. Thought that about Siakam last year and think he will be an All-Star within two years.

  • samuri8

    Yeah, it was the right move by Stotts i think but hurt my single entry badly. Not sure why I left him in my single entry, today was a disaster logistically. My car charger wouldn’t work so some showdown reservations got flushed. Did manage 4th in the early $12 SE showdown so I’m insulated somewhat for today. Still, stupid stuff like that obv kills your ROI and it’s a reminder to always keep your DFS tools in proper order. This is my SE, thanks chief.

    Have some LUs going at 178 on FD and 6 players still active—Lillard, Murray, MCollum, Harris, Collins and Kanter and my dropped score behind me (Reddick). Need lots of scoring and a close game in the second half.

  • cdub6238

    Let’s go Denver train….. At 200Dk with Murray Jokic millsap Harris Zach Hood…

  • yisman

    really impressed by Kanter

    he’s earned himself a nice contract now

    Not only did he have a separated shoulder, he’s been fasting from sunrise to sunset for Ramadan, so he couldn’t even eat or drink until halftime.

  • SkateFiend

    Jokic has to be one of the most douchest looking players in the NBA. He looks like a Euro villain who runs his mouth in front of Chuck Norris before getting his ass kicked.
