The NBA Season has sprouted now and some of the teams and players have already shown grit and grind that will persist throughout the long season. In another chapter of the league, Kevin Durant and Brooklyn Nets take on Jimmy Butler-led Miami Heat. More about BKN vs MIA Dream11 will be given below.
Nets have won two of its four games. Kevin Durant has been on cloud nine, James Harden is still finding his feet while Patty Mills has lit up from the outside. The rest of the team doesn’t get a lot of production from other players apart from Joe Harris but Bruce Brown showed promising signs in the last game. With Kyrie Irving potentially out of the scene for long, how will Harden and Durant hold up?
Miami has a lot of firepower this season. Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler form a great defensive duo while Duncan Robinson helps stretch the floor. Meanwhile, Bam Adebayo and PJ Tucker bring toughness in the frontcourt. However, the biggest contributor has been the offense of budding Tyler Herro so far which can be the difference in terms of depth. Markieff Morris can provide top-notch scoring too. The mental and emotional leader Jimmy Butler will again have a task at hand being the ace of this team on both ends.

*last game stats*
Kevin Durant (BKN)
Durant has had a hot start to the season and that is like a routine for him. Kevin has led the team with Kyrie out and Harden struggling to get going, making major contributions on both ends of the floor. Kevin is a living legend and a brief summary can’t even capture an ounce of what he has achieved so far.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 52-68
Jimmy Butler (MIA)
Butler is the emotional leader of this Heat outfit and they struggled without him in the mix last season. What can he do? He can play iso ball, play off-the-ball, and also defend with all his guts. He is always a hot fantasy pick and is coming off a strong effort. Jimmy can be selected as the Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 44-62
James Harden (BKN)
Harden used to draw a lot of fouls in the prior seasons but the NBA rule change has caused him a ton of trouble. He may figure it out soon scoring-wise, but for fantasy lovers, he will keep grabbing rebounds and dish off assists.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-52
Bam Adebayo (MIA)
Bam has a big season ahead of him and he has looked in a wonderful touch so far. Adebayo has clasped 13 rebounds in two and 16 rebounds in one game. He has been a force on the glass and fantasy lovers must keep him in mind before making a lineup.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 34-45
Patty Mills (BKN)
Patty has been the best off-season move made by the Nets so far. He has somehow kept a thin-looking bench afloat through his elite shooting and has nailed 17 threes in four games, what a sizzling start to the season!
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-33
Tyler can become the difference between Miami winning 40-45 games to 50-55. Yes, he is developing into a match-winner. After scoring 27 and 30 in the first two games, he didn’t put up a ton of points but picked up 9 assists versus Magic.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 32-42
Joe Harris (BKN)
Harris is well-known for being an efficient three-point shooter. He has had an up-and-down start but nonetheless, helps the Nets to stretch the defense.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 18-29
Kyle Lowry (MIA)
Lowry has had a tough time to start the season, missing around three of four shots. However, he has played so many years for a single team that it may take time to adjust.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-29
Brown is coming off a great scoring game and will keep on playing 25-30 minutes if he sustains his energy on both ends of the floor.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-26
Markieff Morris (MIA)
Morris remains an effective 10+ points scorer in the league and can build a strong bench unit for Miami along with Herro.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-26
Nic Claxton (BKN)
Nic has relinquished his starting role but may get it back soon if he keeps performing at high-level
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-20
Duncan Robinson (MIA)
Duncan is a sharp-shooter who can chip in with 10-15 points on a regular basis
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-28
Blake Griffin(BKN) had 2 points, 9 rebounds in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-28
Dewayne Dedmon (MIA) had 2 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-19
