Hawks vs Pacers Fantasy NBA: Atlanta Hawks will come into this game after losing to the Bucks despite a 28 points outing by Bogdan Bogdanovic. On the other hand, the Indiana Pacers will hit the floor after losing to the Jazz despite Caris’ 24 points effort. More details about ATL vs IND Dream11 will be given here.
Hawks’ season: Atlanta has managed to be a savvy squad, courtesy of Trae Young and Clint Capela. While Young wreaked havoc as a shooter and playmaker, Capela has terrorized with his defense and superb inside scoring. The Hawks gained momentums after the All-Star Break and are now 5th in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference, surely, they will like to keep this form of play going to compete in the Playoffs.
Pacers’ season: Indiana has been underwhelming this season despite a stellar production of Brogdon and Sabonis. Even with LeVert healthy, they have faced trouble in notching up wins and have been one of the most inconsistent squads. They need to step it up or they will hover around the 9th spot, which means they will miss the Post-season action.

Young has stitched together another prolific scoring season and has continued to lead the way offensively for his squad. His performances have helped the Hawks to be in a position of being a Playoffs squad and he has become one of the best scorers and playmakers in the league. He has dished 10 or more assists 3 times this month. He can be elected as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Sabonis has had lodged the most number of triple-doubles for Pacers this season, and his all-around game has given them huge variety at the Power Forward spot. However, despite his personal accomplishments, Indiana has lagged behind and is a below-par squad right now. Domantas has averaged 13.2 RPG since the month started.
Capela has been the best rebounder in the league this season and his inside scoring tools help him to be a regular double-double machine. Apart from scoring and rebounding, Clint can also be a tough defensive player, thus, he is a superb Center and is one of the reasons why Atlanta has a winning record this season so far. He is averaging 19.4 PPG, 14.9 RPG, and 2.6 BPG since April began.
Brogdon is a superb ball-handler for the Pacers and he has given the most scoring this season. However, despite this, his team has struggled to weave a winning season. He is averaging 7.4 RPG so far this month.
Caris LeVert(Since joining the Pacers): PPG: 18.5 RPG: 4.7 APG: 4.2 SPG: 1.6 TPG: 1.9 PFP: 40
LeVert has been terrific since returning from injury and has given Pacers another scoring option at the two-guard position. He is averaging 22.3 PPG this month.
Lou Williams(Since joining the Hawks): PPG: 11.4 APG: 3.6 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 22
Sweet Lou is in the twilight of his NBA career but still provides instant offense and has been a welcome addition to the Hawks.
Bogdan Bogdanovic: PPG: 14.1 RPG: 3.7 PFP: 28
Bogdan has been terrific as a floor stretcher and scorer for the Hawks and has improved his performances since the All-Star Break. He is averaging an impressive 22.4 PPG this month so far.
Jeremy Lamb: PPG: 10.2 RPG: 3.6 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 18
TJ McConnell: PPG: 8.0 APG: 6.5 SPG: 1.8 TPG: 1.9 PFP: 26
Kevin Huerter: PPG: 11.8 APG: 3.6 RPG: 3.3 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 27
