NBA Preseason fixtures are like the practice games for the players before the regular season. However, some players fight it out for the few remaining spots on the roster In this match, the reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks take on the star-studded Brooklyn Nets. More about BKN vs MIL Dream11 will be given below.
Teams don’t use their full strength in preseason games and the minutes distribution varies game to game. Coaches look to fill in the roster before the regular season and the fixed names look to get their legs back. Giannis, Middleton, Portis, and Holiday sit this one out for the Bucks. Kyrie Irving will not also feature in the game.
Milwaukee fell short to Memphis in the first preseason game as the game cut short because of a fire alarm issue. Jordan Nwora and Grayson Allen scored in double figures and it will be interesting how the two players are used in the regular season.
Brooklyn won their preseason opener against the Lakers. Cam Thomas impressed with 21 points to lead the team. Paul Millsap lodged a double-double while Bruce Brown registered 12 points. It will be interesting to see if Kevin Durant and James Harden return for the game, though we might not see them engage in many minutes even if the players participate.
