Nets vs Celtics NBA Live: Brooklyn Nets finished at the second spot in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference while the Celtics earned the right to be at the 7th place in the NBA Play-in tournament. The Nets have the most formidable big three in the league with three of the top scorers in Harden, Durant, and Irving. This game will be a part of the 7 game series. More information about BKN vs BOS Dream11 will be given here.
BKN vs BOS Dream11 NBA Playoffs: Nets finished 2nd in the PPG as a team, scoring 118 PPG but the problem comes at the defensive end, where they allowed the most points. However, we must not discount the fact that Durant was missing in many games and so were other players. For the Celtics, they have the roster makeup to be competitive and although they have three prominent scorers in Fournier, Tatum, and Walker, they will be tested by the big three of Nets. Both teams have problems with depth in relation to the big men position and this is where they would need players like Thompson and Griffin to rise up.

Projected Fantasy Points: 46
KD remains one of the most dominating players in the league and his ability to score and do a variety of other things makes him unstoppable. The Forward missed a lot of time this season but when he plays, he gives a lot of trouble to the opponents. His matchup with Jayson Tatum will be key and we can see an intense back and forth between the two. Durant’s skill set makes him an enticing pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
Tatum was one of fire during the season and even racked up a 62 points outing. Jay has so many weapons in the arsenal at the offensive end that he will be a nightmare for a relatively lax defense of the Nets. He scored 50 points in the win against the Wizards, indicating how imposing he can be.
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 will be matched up against Walker in this contest and that will be a superb watch.
Walker has the offensive skills to pour in points after points, and like Irving, he is a terrific shooter. Walker will get opportunities to score against a weak Nets team and can go for huge outbursts during the series.
Marcus Smart: PPG: 13.1 APG: 5.7 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.5 TPG: 2.0
Smart is the best perimeter defender in the team and has terrific skillsets in terms of scoring and playmaking as well. He will be the “X-Factor” for the Celtics in this contest.
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.
Evan Fournier(Since joining Celtics): PPG: 13.0 RPG: 3.3 APG: 3.1
SPG: 1.3 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 31
Fournier is one of the scorers who can put up substantial scoring nights and will be crucial for the Celtics to counter the flurry of offense by Nets.
Bruce Brown: PPG: 8.8 RPG: 5.4 PFP: 12
Robert Williams: PPG: 8.0 RPG: 6.9 BPG: 1.8 TPG: 1.0 PFP: 18
