Boston's next road game is Sunday against the 9-3 Portland Trailblazers. I will be looking for the total combined points-plus-rebounds of the projected starting backcourt duos of Damian Lillard, C. J. McCollum, Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown.
The number will be large since we are adding all eight numbers (points + rebounds for all four players).
As an assist, here are the averages for the four players as things sit right now:
Lillard (26.6 PPG and 5.0 RPG)
McCollum (21.0 PPG and 4.3 RPG)
Irving (21.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG)
Brown (12.0 PPG and 4.6 RPG)
That comes to a grand total of 99.5, and that may be a guide for what you will estimate. As always, for night-time games, 6:00 PM ET is the deadline for submissions or edits. In most cases, I am able to record the submitted numbers as of of the deadline to keep an even playing field.
Feel free to let me know of any errors I have made. It is easy to correct them. We are only 14% into the regular season, so I still am inviting others to join in. One win, place or show will put you on the board.
