i think there's a significant downgrade at the 2 such that he is worth more than 4 points.
i get that's not how it works. that other players will make up points. but in a small sample size, the hornets have averaged about 96 in the games EG has played...they were averaging around 91 without him. so 5 points. smaller than i thought, but still more than 4.

One thing that is good is that we're coming off a game where we played a Philly team that isnt/wasnt very physical. But, since we are playing b2b road games, I gotta give the edge to the c's with or without EG.
If we win this game, it will be a damn strong statement. All things considered, the red hot Celtics are playing good ball with Bradley back. If we can shoot like we did last night, we have a chance. Gotta guard the perimeter!
