    Not a ton of edge here tonight. Yet going by DK pricing and assuming Zubac sits, my “optimal going in” has Captain Ayton, provided he can get like 40-ish Dk and PG doesn’t put up another 70 🍔.

    I’m assuming it will be a popular build 🤷‍♂️

    I got 233.38 last night on DK yet I didn’t cash in the freeroll. Top 250 paid, got 367th

    My Cap…

    First off, I don’t really understand why this game is at 9 on a weeknight. 8-830 is more than reasonable.

    Secondly, the conference finals have been exciting but both series have been weird. Clippers should probably be up 3-2 right now, and Hawks should be up 3-1 (they blew a 15 point lead in Game 3). I think Milwaukee would have been the favorite either against the Clippers or the Suns. Now? Feels like whoever comes out of the West wins the whole thing.

    Odds of ABC being DONE until next 2022?
    damn that was brutal to watch – will heavily impact todays 2 game slate

    ..
    .

    Here were the NBA championship odds at BetMGM early Wednesday morning:
    +115 Suns
    +225 Bucks
    +650 Clips
    +800 Hawks

    Then, at about 10 a.m. Eastern time, the odds shifted again with a little more pessimism on the Bucks:
    -130 Suns
    +325 Bucks
    +550 Hawks
    +650 Clippers

    Delta
    -250 Hawks
    -045 Suns
    +000 Clippers
    +100 Bucks

    Soon to be seen in the style of Sweet Lou

    I actually hadn’t thought of that, if he tore his ACL, he’s probably out 90% of the upcoming season. His playing style is not easy on the knees either, so yeah…it wouldn’t shock me if he’s out all year.

    I bet Morris is the the optimal captain. Don’t think Ayton can play close enough to the basket to succeed if Zubac is out again

    If Morris has the game he did last time, I can definitely see it.

    However, he’s hot and cold. I was giving Ayton like 35-45 DK. I think Monty will try and dial up some more plays for Ayton, especially cause I don’t expect Cousins to play big minutes. Question is will the Clips small ball, nullify some opportunities for Ayton as it did last game?

    Edge is leaving a bunch on the table. Im banking on a slow game and people dudding across the board. Dont care if I dont cash lol. I dont want to chop it up with 900 people. Im swinging for the fences. Just need that one time.

    I think Ayton needs 50 to reach Captain status. But I also haven’t looked and am just guessing. Just looked at what my current optimal would be and its

    Captain Morris
    PG
    Batum
    And the 3 main suns

    Me too, that’s how it is most nights with showdown anyway. Your choppin, it’s unavoidable.

    I just don’t find there to be much edge in playoff showdowns on most nights. By edge I mean, I can make 2-4 lineups and feel confident I’ll make a profit doing that on most nights.

    one game slates have more randomness (Excluding injuries) then a full slate, which can be accounted for by many lineups, yet I don’t see making a ton of lineups to be edge.

    Some Bucks insiders are saying that he is done for the season, but there is no structural damage. Still waiting for something official.

    and the last guy I can’t post, as there’s no full lineups, yet you can figure it out

    I agree that Morris appears to be the optimal captain.

    What is the game script if Morris fails?

    Booker by my count had 13 of his 31 points in the nine minutes of the eleven that Boogie Cousins played while Booker was on the floor. I rewatched the game…they went right at Cousins. Ideally Lue would play Cousins less but he probably is forced to play him around this much.

    Chris Paul has ample opportunity. He just looks tired and old.

    I think they need to find more time for Cameron Payne…, as they have zero juice on offense. Payne can beat these Clippers off the dribble.

    The Clippers looked to iso Booker defensively, forcing him to work on defense as a series long wear down tactic. To me the Suns overcompensated by always have additional defenders close to Booker to help him out. As a result whenever the Clippers swung the ball to Morris or Jackson they had isolations with no help. The priority for the Suns appeared to be staying attached to Booker over prioritizing the basketball. Even a defender like Mikal Bridges cannot defend these guys without any help or a defender at the rim. I would expect adjustments from Monty Williams. Perhaps just deciding to not guard someone…Pat Beverley?

    Suns showed some 2-3 zone also in the second half. I bet we see some more of that.

    I also lean towards a 91-86 type game. Get as many producing players into your lineups.

  • monarch

    Marcus Morris also had 4.75 DK points in the second half of his big game.

  • siddom

    For 2 gamer, play George and Mikal or go Reggie and booker?

  • 866

    Paul is the key. Too cheap at 8000.. disagree he looks old and slow. He carries them to the Finals tonight. 25+ Natty, DD Assts, 100% Paul!

  • RipCityRings

    My favorite stat from last game was that Boogie somehow managed to take 12 shots in only 11 minutes off the bench in a WCF elimination game. HoF level confidence right there.
