Mavericks vs Bucks Fantasy NBA: The Dallas Mavericks will enter the game after losing to the Houston Rockets despite 23 points and 12 rebounds outing by Kristaps Porzingis. On the other hand, the Milwaukee Bucks will come into the contest after losing a close battle against the Warriors despite a 29 points flurry by Jrue Holiday. A lineup related to DAL vs MIL Dream11 NBA will be given at the end.
Mavericks’ season: Dallas has been up-and-down throughout the season but has done a better job in advancing towards NBA Playoffs after the All-Star Break. The team has improved defensively and had multiple options to score at the guard option makes them a tough team to defend. However, despite being seated at 7th in the NBA Standings for the Western Conference, Dallas will need to figure out a way to get in the Playoffs and also improve upon the Forward positions which are susceptible.
Bucks’ season: Milwaukee looks like a formidable foe as it consists of lengthy defenders and three of their starters in Holiday, Middleton, and Giannis, can all generate scoring opportunities through their passing and are themselves able scorers. Bucks have been positioned to fight against the juggernaut in Nets and Sixers in the Eastern Conference, but their stability, health, and chemistry can render them a better squad in the coming Playoffs.

Projected Fantasy Points: 51
Doncic is having another impressive season and he has picked the load on the offensive end for his squad, being their prime scorer and playmaker. He is also an elite rebounder, which means he is one of the most enticing All-Around Players in the League right now. Doncic is a prime candidate for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy league.
Middleton continues to be a terrific team-oriented player, plus in a period of safety protocols and a long injury list, he has kept himself active and engaged. He has become a remarkable passer as well, giving Bucks 3 playmakers in the starting lineup. He is averaging 1.4 SPG for the last 5 games.
One of the most underrated players and one of the best guard defenders, Jrue has done the job for the Bucks and has been an immense upgrade at Guard position from Eric Bledsoe. He is averaging close to 27.2 PPG for the last 5 games, while also averaging 7.8 APG and 2.2 SPG, showing his impressive form right now.
Porzingis has had to perform a tenuous role for the Mavs on both ends of the floor. While his huge frame allows him to finish up close and his shooting touch makes it tough for opposing Centers, his defense is inconsistent but not as horrible as some critics may suggest. Injuries have derailed him a little and his sprained wrist can bother him in upcoming contests.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: PPG: 16.5 RPG: 3.5 PFP: 25
Hardaway began the season as the starter but to bolster the bench strength, he is now playing in the capacity of a sixth man, providing reliable scoring.
Donte Divincenzo: PPG: 10.5 RPG: 5.6 APG: 3.1 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 30
DiVincenzo is a hardworking guard who can surprise with his rebounding abilities but plays within the team scheme overall. He is averaging 6.8 RPG and 1.8 SPG for the last 5 games.
Jalen Brunson: PPG: 13.0 RPG: 3.5 APG: 3.4 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 27
Brunson has provided a new dimension for the Mavs at the guard position, his scoring chops and playmaking has made their bench sturdy. He is averaging 18.7 PPG for the last 4 games, crossing the 20 points mark twice.
Bobby Portis: PPG: 11.1 RPG: 6.9 PFP: 25
Dorian Finney-Smith: PPG: 8.9 RPG: 5.3 PFP: 20
