    50% of FD LUs will go…MVp Durant Star ABC PRO Middleton. I’m only doing 1, I whiffed on all 5 and such a vanilla LU chopped first 12 times like I said which makes it harder to cash overall. You NEEDED like 7/9 right guys just to cash.

  • IT4MVP

    You would think Jrue would have a nice game here not having to guard Kyrie at all. I just have a feeling the Nets win tonight KD will have an epic performance and I think Harris and Green step up

    You’ll have to explain to me how you will have 50% with that order but only doing 1. Guess this does explain why your projections never make sense either.

    Or I guess you just mean the fields lineups will go in that order. I understand now

    If Harden plays then I really like Jrue Holiday for the fact that I would think they would test out Hardens hamstrings as much as possible like the Suns did with AD. Durant has been defending Middleton, I think they will make Harden defend in iso.

    I think he means 50% of all entries.

    I think they put Harden on P.J. Tucker so he doesn’t have to guard anyone.

    True but the Nets switch everything. Harden might just camp out in the paint. Bucks might launch 50 threes tonight.

    If I’m the Bucks I do the opposite. I’m pounding it down low to Lopez.

    Like really, of course he means the field 50 percent and he’s off on that too.

    but lopez on offense stands around the entire time in the three point area-the last game it was infuriating to watch like he learned the game from tucker-to his credit on defense he played big and got lots of blocks and rebounds

    I am thinking this could be the DAJ game

    Almost like it’s done intentionally to keep the paint clean and spacious for a special someone?

    Maaaaaaybe, yet my gut says he sits, and if he does sit, or plays compromised, I think your Bucks blow the Nets out tonight.

    Would say Harden is almost a lock to go for game 6 though.

    If I am Nets, I just go with Durant tonight and let Harden sit. I think Nets were 5-1 or something this year in games where it was just Durant and no Kyrie or Harden. Bucks got blown out in both games in Brooklyn (with Iriving), I am not overly confident that the Bucks can beat Brooklyn in Brooklyn no matter who is or isn’t playing. If Brooklyn wins, they can probably get by with resting Harden until at least game 7. If they lose, bring him back for games 6 and 7.

    All I know is that I saw what I saw, and the Nets looked futile with just Durant. I am expecting a better game plan from Nash, than throw it to KD and let him go to work.

    Yet a bunch of mediocre players are going to have to catch fire at the exact right moment for the Nets to win. I just think the Bucks, if they just play OK basketball, have too much for the Nets with just KD. I could be wrong though….I guess that’s why the play the game 😎😁

    So the person who seemed to benefit the most from Kyrie being hurt was surprisingly old man Jeff Green. He was the player who subbed in for the injured Irving and he also started the second half alongside Mike James in place of Irving and Bruce Brown Jr.

    Blake Griffin did not play the final 19 minutes of the game.

    Landry Shamet surprisingly did not benefit whatsoever. He played a total of three minutes after Irving went down.

    Joe Harris played a bunch and scored a total of three points after Irving went down. There is an obvious void with Irving off…he has been grabbing a lot of peripherals and takes a lot of heat off Kevin Durant. I continue to not be surprised if Nash goes with Durant’s friend Deandre Jordan as a spark over Claxton and Griffin for stretches in this game. DAJ is not very good but you can throw the ball to him, run offense through him at the high post while KD works through some off ball screens…allowing the Nets to reintroduce some movement into their offense. They are going to need to run offense now…cannot iso with just one guy.

    James Harden worked his hamstring through shoot-around without an issue, and will do the same on the court prior to tip vs. Milwaukee with hopes of playing in Game 5 tonight, sources tell ESPN.

  • yisman

    Yesterday the Nets had Harden listed as out for Game 5. This morning he was upgraded to doubtful.

    Now questionable.

  • bazerko

    I remember the slate a few months back when Brooklyn played the Knicks. Harden’s first game back from a hamstring injury and re-injured it in the first quarter.
