Nets vs Suns Fantasy NBA: Brooklyn Nets will come into this game after beating the Celtics behind a 20 points performance by Joe Harris. On the other hand, the Phoenix Suns will enter the battle after losing to the Celtics despite a 22 points effort by CP-3. More information about BKN vs PHX Dream11 will be given here.
Nets season: Brooklyn has not shown its full strength as Durant, Harden, and Kyrie have played barely 3-4 games together, however despite Durant missing time, and then Irving and now Harden too, the team is at the 2nd place in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference. This team has plenty of enforcers at the offense and though the roster is vulnerable in terms of injuries even if 2 of Durant, Irving, or Harden are healthy then they can crack the code to the NBA Finals.
Suns’ season: Phoenix is one of the most havoc-wreaking squads in the league. They have found terrific leadership and playmaking from Chris Paul, Devin Booker continues to be one of the elite scorers, and youngsters like Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges have put up some terrific performances on both ends. If we look at the Suns’ roster, then they have players capable of playing both ends and it is no surprise that the unit is 2nd in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.

Projected Fantasy Points: 44
Uncle Drew is shooting at more than 50% and for a guard who averages 25PPG+ with this percentage means that he is having a record season. He has put up 40 points+ games too this year and he has shown the league that he is far from being done. He is averaging 8.4 APG and 2.6 SPG for the last 5 games and can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Booker is now a part of an elite team, and it has certainly boosted his confidence. Playing alongside veteran PG and mastermind Chris Paul, and being surrounded with terrific defensive players, means that he can now relish the feeling of being in a winning squad. Fatigue is catching up to Booker, as his scoring has been reduced a little, however, he can catch fire anytime.
CP-3’s presence has transformed the Suns into a Playoffs bound and one of the top-performing teams in the league. His playmaking abilities, defense, scoring, and intangible aspects of the game make him an elite player, and one can see the outcome through the results generated by the Suns. He is averaging 9.2 APG and 1.8 SPG this month so far.
The sharp-shooting SF is the only player in the Nets who has played all the 60 games and has given them a stable and consistent production. He is shooting a stunning 48% from the 3-pt line and has become one of the most devastating shooters in the League. Joe is averaging 19.2 PPG for the last 5 games.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 15.0 RPG: 10.7 BPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 34
The Suns Center has been a superb contributor on both ends of the floor. He gives stable scoring, rebounding, defense, and plays a crucial part in the team schemes. He is averaging 16.4 PPG this month.
Jeff Green: PPG: 10.4 RPG: 3.7 PFP: 26
Green stepped up to the plate in the absence of Kevin Durant and has given Nets a lot of impetus, directly resulting in wins.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 13.1 RPG: 4.4 PFP: 23
Bridges is a dynamic forward who is only 24 and has given the Suns depth. The youngster is able to play elite defense and this part of him makes him an interesting player for the future while being highly effective in the present too.
Bruce Brown: PPG: 8.9 RPG: 5.3 PFP: 22
Cameron Payne: PPG: 7.3 APG: 3.5 TPG: 1.1 PFP: 18
