*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 56
KD was unstoppable in the first game and his skills were on full display as he scored 32 points and racked up 12 rebounds. He also did a terrific defensive job and the Celtics will have to show more discipline while dealing with him, but they only can focus on one player too much since the team has Harden and Irving as well. Durant’s skill set makes him an enticing pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
Tatum is a premier offensive player and has a range of weapons to deploy on that end. However, despite having a 22 points night, Jayson’s production was affected, shooting only 30%, which has to surely improve against such a difficult team.
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 trumped the first game, acing 29 points and controlling the tempo.
Walker is one of the more premier offensive options on the team and he is going to play a vital role in this game. He had his struggles in Game 1, managing 15 points on an abysmal 31%, which is not enough against the Nets.
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 had a great Game 1, scoring 17 points and dishing 5 assists.
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 10 points and 3 rebounds in Game 1.
Evan Fournier(Since joining Celtics): PPG: 13.0 RPG: 3.3 APG: 3.1
SPG: 1.3 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 31
Fournier is capable of scoring a lot but didn’t play well in the first game, scoring only 10 points on a 30% shooting.
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
