MIN vs BRK Dream11:The NBA Regular Season is less than a week away and it is going to be a blast as usual.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
While the Nets haven’t lived up to the expectations for a long time, they did push the 2021 champions Bucks to seven games in a closely contested series. With Irving and Durant, they have a scoring duo that can overtake the game whereas Ben Simmons can lock down the perimeter, collect boards, provide instant playmaking, and score inside. The team can run a small-ball lineup of Irving, Simmons, Curry, Durant, and Harris which has both inside and outside promise. The question is will Irving, Durant, and Simmons remain healthy for most parts.
Timberwolves: Can they survive the loaded West?
The Wolves scooped up Rudy Gobert in the offseason and that means they have a strong frontline of Edwards, Anthony-Towns, and Gobert. D’Angelo Russell can knock down the outside shot and the team has built a dependable two-way squad. They will be competing against West’s loaded teams so they may still hover in the four-six rankings this season. A lot will depend upon how consistent they are on the defensive end while Jaden McDaniels can act as the “X-Factor” alongside Naz Reid, again meaning that they have a loaded frontline.
