    Hell no. The game will be. I'd say in a regular year vegas gives about 3ish points for home court advantage. But with hardly (or no) fans I bringing that more to a point or two. I think 5 is too much. I won't touch it but if we get AT...we can prob pull it off but still 5 to me in Butler's favor against anyone right now with our body count is insane.

    Think we could see some minutes from AT tomorrow, but believe as stated it’s game time decision.

    Vegas knows something. If Butler is -5, I’d think they have intel on AT.

    The way you convince yourself to bet against butler week in and week out is funny.

    Surprised no one has noted that Butler’s ridiculous injury stretch for both quantity and duration coincides pretty much with Ryan Galloy leaving

    Which just means he works for Hancock Regional Health. Depending on his duties with HRH, it probably pays better with less stress.

    This is, without a doubt, the most optimistic LJ has sounded both in tone and in words about AT since the injury (from Dakich's show). Doesn't mean he will play tonight, but it certainly feels like he's very close at worst.

    If I'm being honest, I stand by my prediction earlier that I think he will play tonight. AT wants to play and going through shootaround means he's pretty darn close. I'd guess he'll push and be on the floor. Again, to be clear, this entire second paragraph is my opinion without inside info.

    Yeah, LJ sounded a bit depressed when Dakich mentioned the injuries, but he did quickly say Donovan is back and David is dressing tonight.

    My board has it at -4. Getting AT back even at 75% or so would be a God send. My question with David is lower body strength and lateral movement. He's a very good defender and even at 6-8 minutes could lead to some good defensive possessions if he's indeed ready to go. Would be nice to see.

    If AT does indeed play, I'm guessing it's Tate to the bench. After starting and running the offense for a few weeks now, he can focus on coming in and just launching away.

    I’ve thought about this. It’s definitely true. And I’ve had my questions too but, like, remember watching Christian David land? Remember watching Aaron Thompson land last month, or last year on his wrist? It’s not like these were things that are unexpected results given the occurrences in which they occurred.

    You mean to tell me that correlation does not equal causation?

    So, if AT is back tonight, what's your starting lineup?

    AT-CH-JB-BN-BG in a heartbeat for me with Tate playing big minutes as the sixth man.

    Posted my game preview for tonight. It is free to read right away: https://www.patreon.com/posts/45895802

    Note: I will not be writing game takeaways from this one, but instead will post my Top 10 biggest takeaways from Butler's first eight games in the aftermath of tonight's performance (presumably will be posted tomorrow). That piece, however, will be patron-only and stay behind that wall. If you any questions about my Patreon, don't hesitate to reach out. DMs on Twitter and here are open.

    This is a toss up. Two terrible head coaches. LJ is bad, but Ewing makes him look like Phil Jackson.
