DEN vs BKN Dream11 Team Prediction NBA Projections, Fantasy Basketball Picks for Nuggets vs Nets, 9 May


Nuggets vs Nets Fantasy NBA: The Denver Nuggets will come into the game after losing to the Jazz despite a 31 points outburst by Michael Porter Jr. On the other hand, the Brooklyn Nets will enter the battle after a loss against the Mavericks despite a herculean 45 points outburst by Kyrie Irving. More regarding DEN vs BKN Dream11 will be given here.

Nuggets’ season: Denver’s ace is Nikola Jokic but since January, Michael Porter Jr. has been in imperious form, playing at an elite level. Despite losing Jamal Murray to injury for the season, the team has been able to wrap up games because of their deep Forward position, where Aaron Gordon and Paul Millsap have become stabilizers. The Nuggets are shooting around 48% as a team which is among the top 3 in the league.

Nets’ season: Brooklyn has a trio in Durant, Irving, and Harden, but all 3 of them have not played together much except for 3-4 games, which means that there can be chemistry issues once the NBA Playoffs arrive. Nets have lost their rhythm this month despite having both Durant and Irving, and they look thin at the PF and C positions. While Nets are number 2 in terms of PPG with 118.5, they have huge defensive issues and are 22nd in the PPG allowed. They are 3rd in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference.
