    I think my favorite play at the moment is Millsap

    What you guys think of Kuzma tonight?

    My general rule of thumb is to never play Jazz opponents, but someone has to score on them.

  • cjrswish

    Am I crazy for starting every LU with the Thunders big 3? should play good minutes and still have enough $ left over to fill out good lineups. Seems too obvious. Must be a catch.

    Can Westbrook hit even 4x tonight? I see potential for 3x but no upside ceiling with limited minutes and decreased usage rate.

    I think you need to look at it in terms of pure points not X value like the regular season. If the goal is 30+ per player, that is 3X for Westbrook and you are good. The tighter the pricing, the more X value matters. Normally, pricing is pretty loose in the preseason. That being said, pricing does seem a little tighter tonight than the rest of the preseason.

    Any idea how many minutes Burke’s get
    For Utah?

    Jazz are holding preseason opponents to 91.3 PPG, tied for for second lowest with the Rockets (Grizz holding teams to the lowest). Like I said, someone will put up some points against the Jazz, Kuzma could absolutely go off as he’s 6th in PPG this preseason. Just tough to target the Jazz.

  • cjrswish

    Just read D Rose will be playing pg with the starters and 2nd unit. He might be a lock in all my LUs tonight.

    Lakers have a 104 projected total from Vegas for what it’s worth

    Yeah…actually with the Jazz playing 2 games vs international teams, those numbers hold much less weight. Suns put up 101 and 102 so I imagine the Lakers could put up similar numbers.

    Well…that’s their plan this season. Will they be starting regular starters and running full minutes tonight?

  • mikemageephoto

    That’s for the season, not for tonight.

    I read that as that is how they are planning to run the regular season rotation – not this particular preseason game

    Why wouldn’t you want to give Rose some opportunity to do that in these last two preseason games? I’m thinking Lebron and Wade play 20-25 Mins tonight and the rest of the starters and second unit get around 30.

    Coach Tyronn Lue conceded that James looked “a little tired,” but said he pushed the Cavs in practice to improve their conditioning.

    “He went hard and pushed through it,” Lue said of James. “You miss six, seven or eight days where you have to be off your feet, it’s tough. We tried to play a lot today just so they can try to get their wind back.

    “Tomorrow we’ll play more minutes and see how they feel.”

    seems good for cavs minutes

  • Lathum

    Anyone gambling on LeBron tonight? I’m hoping ownership is lower due to first game back, etc…

  • ouijacom

    Real question is do you run westbrook or not westbrook

    I’ve got about 30% exposure, if Paul and/or Melo was sitting I’d be 100% exposure.
