    Pretty decent number of games on this Monday preseason slate, so I thought I’d get a strategy thread started.

    Milwaukee Chicago 8:00 PM
    Orlando Memphis 8:00 PM
    Charlotte Dallas 8:30 PM
    Denver Toronto 9:00 PM
    San Antonio Phoenix 10:00 PM
    Utah Portland 10:00 PM

    Oh, what do I do with you, Mr. Brandon Knight? He will be the sixth man for Phoenix against an already depleted Spurs team. Even with 15-20 mins…he should feast off those young ‘uns in the second unit, if you can even call what the Spurs have tonight a ‘second unit’. Oh, what to do….

    there are legit 6-7 C all near the same proj range for me. Feel like it’s easy to go smart contrarian there. Jokic/Nurkic starting together sort of hurts both their rebound rates I feel so I’m leaning towards Vuc now playing for a new coach that doesn’t hate him may be a good narrative to start his season.

    Anyone like Hezonja tonight?

  • NickyBlueEyes

    You really think when Hoiberg sends out all scrubs to start the second half Kidd is going to roll Giannis back out there?

    Few random thoughts (for bias or insight purposes, I am a Raps season ticket holder):

    If you are playing the Raps tonight; avoid the starters. They are going to play about 15-17 minutes because they are playing this in Calgary and its a chance to show off the stars of the “We The North” movement across the country (the games are all national in Canada)…but they aren’t risking anything and playing at a slower, more deliberate pace then normal. They may force to Sully a bit to get him integrated but I wouldn’t sweat over a straight fade of starters.

    Siakim got the first crack to play longer minutes on Saturday but I wouldn’t be surprised if tonight was Noguiera or Poeltl night to be focused on. They are going to give all 3 of them a long look before deciding on the back up C role and fading the spot feels right for now.

    If you are dead set to play a Raptor; the answer is Norman Powell. They will want to showcase him and find out what they have between him and Ross (who signed an extension and wont be eligible to be traded until December). He’s a young guy, role player, and exactly the type to get 20-22 minutes and be the focal point for half of that.

    On the other side, I know it is narrative street, but this game is broadcast across Canada (with no Jays or Leafs and TSN owning the MNF rights). Jamaal Murray happens to be Canadian and the star of our national team from the Pan Am games. Obviously a very high draft pick and I think Denver will let him have his moment if he gets going. It’s preseason, I think these types of narratives are stronger when the games matter infinitely less.

    You can start a great lineup by putting in both Powells and both Murrays and going from there…..I just may do that.

    He’s starting. Debating between Bismak, Dedmon& Nurkic & Vucevic.

  • narcocop

    No one’s talking about him but i think Aminu will get 25+ tonight. They are thin down low and he moved to the PF pos this year

    every DFS is tough and NBA is no different. Tonight and all early preseason games are a shit show as far as who plays. Don’t go nuts.

    John Kuhn doesn’t play basketball so short answer to your question is “no”

  • DougFunny

    is Zach Randolph out or coming off the bench?

  • Pitch120

    Troy Daniels starting for Memphis…Put up 15 in 17 min in preseason last year. Going all in on him at a weak position

  • thetitanlb

    Someone asking about variance in a first nba preseason game makes me chuckle.

    I agree with @slpanthers24

    However, I am of the opinion that NBA Preseason has more variance…especially when teams are establishing the go-to guy and rotations. This season in particular because of all the off-season craziness with the salary cap changes..etc. Golden State is the obvious cluster…but when I look at Chicago tonight…I have to wonder…is this Jimmy Butler team, Rajon Rondo’s team, Dwayne Wade’s team? What will the touches be like in that situation? Who will concede to the other guy? Just don’t know.

    NBA..regular season, less variance…preseason NBA is almost worse than the sky-high variance in MLB, for sure.

    Bench, but coach said he’d be playing 20-23 min. Has a good matchup vs the bench players

  • daneshinault

    Lillard or Murray tonight?
