ORL vs MEM Dream11 Prediction NBA Live, Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Orlando Magic vs Memphis Grizzlies
Updated on: Oct 10, 2022 11:47 pm IST
ORL vs MEM Dream11: The NBA Preseason doesn’t have the same juice as the Regular Season but still, we have seen high-level play with teams finding out their rotations. Mostly, the rotations are set, and what remains to be seen is what deep bench players(read bench warmers) make the cut. Anyway, in this preseason tussle, the Orlando Magic will take on the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Magic defeated the Mavericks 111-105 as rookie Paolo Banchero took off for an incredible 19 points effort.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies’ main unit faced a rather embarrassing defeat against a second-string Miami Heat team, losing 108:111.
Host: Orlando Magic
Visitors: Memphis Grizzlies
Match Timing: 12 October, @ 04:30 AM
Venue: Amway Center
NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Youth movement for the Magic
The Magic has one of the youngest teams in the league and their frontline is full of potential stars. While Wendell Carter Jr. seems to have already reached his prime, Franz Wagner has shown huge promises. Now, when you add Paolo Banchero to the set-up, the team has three legitimate bigs who can provide different styles of basketball, from the physical to the finesse one. The trouble is that the guard duo of Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs looked all over the place last season and this team may need someone who can nail the long ball in the backcourt or will Suggs and Anthony figure it out soon?
Grizzlies are sky-high
Memphis was one of the best stories last season but their inexperience showed against the veteran unit of the Warriors in the Playoffs. They will be without Jaren Jackson for at least three weeks but his return is closer than expected. The team draws a lot from Ja Morant who was the offensive leader last season but even when he was injured, Memphis figured great ball movement and Desmond Bane was a big difference-maker as the long-range bomber. There is a lot of depth in the team but they will need to keep their nerves calm against quality opponents. Will they be able to repeat or even better what they did last season? Or was that season their peak?

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Wendell Carter Jr.(ORL)
Carter Jr. is a brilliant rebounder, inside player, and has the potential to become a Defensive Player of the Year candidate. He is one of the options for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Ja is a spectacular scorer and playmaker, and his motor is running at its peak. Will he repeat last season’s heroics?
Paolo Banchero (ORL)
Banchero has shown why he was a lottery pick and he will be getting a bulk of minutes if he remains healthy.
Bane can nail the long ball but he has a lot of other ways to score and influence the game in multiple areas.
Cole is a superb scorer and playmaker but he has been a bit too inconsistent for the Magic, a team that lacks backcourt scoring and long-range shooting
Brooks can be effective from the long-range and he also plays some incredible defense for most parts.
ORL vs MEM LINEUP BALANCERS
- Chuma Okeke(ORL): Has Okeke hit his peak or is there more? He is a solid role player anyway.
- Terrence Ross(ORL): Ross has been a streak scorer for many years but does he even fit in the current young Orlando roster?
- Steven Adams(MEM): Center Adams is one of the most contact-inducing players who can be big on boards and inside scoring.
- Santi Aldama(MEM): Aldama has been a consistent contributor in the Preseason but will he get a big role during Regular Season?
- Mo Bamba(ORL): Bamba showed big growth recently but will Paolo’s arrival slash his minutes in big ways?
- Brandon Clarke(MEM): Brandon is a throwback big-Forwad who can slash hard to the basket.
- Tyus Jones(MEM): Jones is a wonderful playmaker who can also shoot a bit.
- Bol Bol(ORL): Bol is a lengthy player but lets see if he is able to get a decent role.
- Ziaire Williams(MEM): Williams can shoot from outside.
