BKN vs BOS Dream11 NBA Playoffs Game 5: Nets have shown how powerful the trio of Harden, Durant, and Irving can prove to be and how defenses are left high and dry when such type of offensive players impose their will. The Celtics have missed Jaylen Brown on both ends, and the Walker has not produced at the level that they would have expected him to. While Tatum remains red-hot, the Nets seem too much for the Celtics right now.

*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 60
KD has been scoring at a handsome rate in this series and the Celtics defense has shown glaring holes when encountering him. However, it is difficult to double-team Durant as both Irving and Harden can create multiple opportunities while Joe Harris can shoot the lights out. In Game 4, Durant mustered up 42 points and 5 assists. Durant’s production makes him an enticing pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
After struggling in two games, Jayson has found his stroke and has given a headache to the Nets defense. Tatum is the heart and soul of the Celtics and has not received much support outside of Marcus Smart on the offensive and defensive ends. Tatum lodged an incredible 40 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists in Game 4 loss.
Irving is one of the most potent scorers in the league and has the ability to take over the games because of his genius dribbling skills, shooting, and scintillating driving. Irving was scorching hot in Game 4, amassing 39 points and 11 rebounds.
Smart has been terrific since the series began and has lodged impressive outings, dishing the ball at a high clip and also scoring in a myriad of ways. If Walker doesn’t play in the game then his role will be crucial in defining the Celtics’ effort outside of Tatum. He scooped up 16 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds in the Game 4 loss.
Joe Harris: PPG: 14.1 RPG: 3.6 PFP: 20
Harris is the most efficient three-point shooter in terms of 3pt FG% and takes advantage of playing with superb offensive players, which opens up opportunities for him. He collected 14 points and 4 rebounds in Game 4.
Evan Fournier(Since joining Celtics): PPG: 13.0 RPG: 3.3 APG: 3.1
SPG: 1.3 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 31
Fournier has not been consistent this series and that has hurt the offensive scheme of the Celtics. He did have 16 points in Game 4 but only shot 33% from the field
Bruce Brown: PPG: 8.8 RPG: 5.4 PFP: 12
James Harden compiled an insane stat line in Game 4 with 23 points and 18 assists.
PG: P Pritchard
SG: M Smart
SF: J Harris, E Fournier, B Brown
PF: J Tatum(PP), K Durant(SP)
