NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Jazz: Can be a long season
After having the best record a couple of seasons ago and being the fourth seed last season, the Jazz has now entered the rebuild mode. They have broken the core of Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, and Mike Conley. They now have a unit that consists of Jordan Clarkson, Mike Conley, Colin Sexton, and Lauri Markkanen as the main players, which means they have a decent scoring lineup but their defense isn’t as effective. The bench looks so-so but let us see if the Jazz spring up a surprise considering they have decent experience.
Mavericks: Big Dreams
Led by Luka Doncic, the Mavs made the Conference Finals last season but Jalen Brunson, a key part of the run was signed by the New York Knicks. The Mavericks acquired Christian Wood to addressed the lack of middle players and this can end up being a huge factor. Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith will play a crucial role as defenders and as floor-spreaders. The defense looks solid but can Christian get it done on that end? Luka will be surely doing the usual damage but there is some doubt that if the Mavs can repeat last season’s heroics considering the loaded Western Conference. Spencer Dinwiddie and Tim Hardaway can provide instant offense.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Isolation specialist Jordan can end up having season of his life and can end up averaging 20 points a game. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Luka Doncic(DAL )
Luka is one of the best players to grace the floor and his all-around impact makes the Mavs a title contender this season.
Stretch-four Lauri bolsters the frontline of Jazz and he can end up with a bunch of boards.
Christian can both shoot from outside and also do a fair bit of damage inside while providing above-average rebounding.
Colin is an incredible athlete who can explode off-the-dribble but can end up taking tough shots many times.
Spencer can struggle to shoot from outside but when he gets going, he can pose major threats on the offensive end.
UTA vs DAL DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS
- Kelly Olynyk(UTA): Kelly can end up with a starting role with the Jazz, providing decent experience in the middle.
- Jarred Vanderbilt(UTA): Jarred is a hustle player who can have a big impact on defense.
- Dorian Finney-Smith(DAL ): Dorian is an incredible defender who can knock down the outside shot, but isn’t necessarily an assertive offensive player.
- Mike Conley(UTA): Conley remains a strong defender, playmaker, and scorer, but health issues can stall him a bit. Will he play here? A high chance is that he doesn’t.
- Reggie Bullock(DAL ): Reggie was impressive in terms of outside shooting last season but his trademark is defense.
- Talen Horton-Tucker(UTA): Talen can play some tough defense but his stroke has been iffy for a long time now.
- Tim Hardaway Jr(DAL ): Tim is an explosive scorer but his fit with the team has been questioned.
- Jaden Hardy(DAL): Jaden has made a deep impression during the Preseason, can the rookie get some playing time though?
