Guards of the Fantasy, Vol. 2

One thing I like about Google Drive To The Finals 2017 is that you can see the schedule all neat...


That May 7 has one potential sweep game (Cavs series) and two swing games (Spurs' and Celtics'). Make sure that by that time, you have picked the high rollers from the Raptors. From the Raptors, I still have DeRozan and Ibaka. If the Raptors win Game 3 (which they are expected to), then it's Wizards' Gortat for Game 4. Otherwise, it's Ibaka for me. Hoping for double-double either way.

As for the Spurs' series, I still think that the Spurs win it even though they lost Game 1 and Parker. They are winning either Game 3 or 4, and going back to a best-of-three series with homecourt advantage. Otherwise, it's a scramble for Leonard, Gasol and Aldridge -- I don't even want to think about that scenario. Pretty sure if Rockets win Game 3, a lot will be pushing the panic button. I won't be.

May 6 and 8 have just the Warriors' series. If you still have Hayward, good on you because the rest of us only have Gobert and an injured Hill. I have Gobert for May 6's Game 3. If Hill plays Game 3, then he's my pick for Game 4. Otherwise, I got Round1-hero-Round2-zero Johnson for Game 4.

Today May 5, it's DeRozan. He's not been himself in the first two games. Hoping a home game will change that. Can't go down 0-3 because that spells a series loss almost. What I want -- DeRozan goes nuts, Raptors win.


Good luck with your picks!

  1. Totally agree with what you're saying about the Spurs. If Houston does go up 3-1, we've gotta be willing to lose an Aldridge or Gasol. They're solid, but not that much better than the Serge Ibaka types, and the Raptors have plenty of those possible 20+ PRA guys, so I'll just keep picking Raptors until an elimination game. I'm willing to lose members of the Rockets or Spurs in order to keep lots of players for next round. Just need to make sure that Harden and Leonard get picked and I'm all good.

    Go DeRozan and the Raptors tonight!

    1. Happy for DeRozan pickers. Hot pick but the right pick.

  2. I changed to DeRozan at the last minute before tip thanks to the limited minutes to Lowry, I hope it wasn't too late but game time decisions suck for these contests!

    1. Wish noone from our guys got Lowry today. 7% owned :(
      He was missed sorely, with Joseph going 2/12.
      With Raptors losing, I am switching Game 4 from Gortat to Ibaka.... maybe Valanciunas.

  3. Quick note before I am off to far away countries.

    Saturday and Monday it´s Jazz players for me. I lost Hayward to his 5 PRA for food poisoning or whatever that was, and I am pretty unsure about George Hill. So it will be Gobert on saturday and Hill on monday, if he plays. If he doesn´t play, it will be Johnson. Let´s wait and see.

    As for sunday, the Raptors are just about done, I still have Ibaka. I am unsuere about the Wizards-Celtics series but I already picked Thomas in rd 1 and Wall and Beal in the wrong order in rd 2, so I will stay away for at least one more game.
    I still believe in the Spurs as opposed to the one-trick-pony 3-shooting Harden Rockets, so I might start going there. Who´s the number 2 on that team? I will try Ariza in FP and Capela in GD. Go Spurs.

  4. So far, I've been picking the same player on Google Drive and Fantasy Postseason. The reason I usually do that is two fold. First, it makes it easier to manage and remember who I've picked if I have one set of picks. Second, I usually believe in the picks I'm making, so I'd rather double down on a pick I think will be great.

    However, today I'm pulling an aceee06. I've got Gordon Hayward in Fantasy Postseason and I've got Rudy Gobert in Google Drive to the Finals. The only reason I'm doing this is I missed Game 7 of the first round on Fantasy Postseason. I hadn't realized I forgot to make a pick until it was too late. With my focus on running the other one, I figured that might happen. So I've still got Hayward on FP. Between Hayward and Gobert, I think Hayward is the better pick so I'm going with him. On Google DTTF, Gobert is my best option.

  5. Hill is out ALERT Hill is OUT! I have Gobert on GD but I had Hill on FP and I'd like to avoid using the same player in both games as much as possible. it's not easy though with ONLY this game tonight (and a repeat situation on Monday)!!

    My best Jazz players available are Hill and Joe Johnson. With Hill out tonight, the choice is easy for me. Iso Joe, I hope he will play a better game at home than he did at Warriors

  7. I took Shelvin Mack on FP, he got 18 which I'll take although who took him on GD got 20 so he must have had -2 Steals+Blocks-Turnovers.

  8. Shelvin Mack seems like a pretty good pick for game 4 if Hill is out again with 17 20 and 18. Today I think Otto Porter will be a good pick as he will get slightly more minutes because of his backup Oubre's suspension in game 4.
