DEN vs DAL Dream11 Team Prediction Basketball, NBA Regular Season, Denver Nuggets vs Dallas Mavericks, 8 January

DEN VS DAL Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: DEN vs DAL Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Nuggets are coming off a win against the young Timberwolves, in a game where their stalwart Center posted monster numbers with 35 points and 15 rebounds. The Nuggets have started on a low note and have a losing record after 7 games. Mavericks are coming off 13 point win against the Houston Rockets, where Luka Doncic had a monster triple-double, grabbing 16 rebounds. Like the Nuggets, the Mavericks also have a losing record and are without their star Forward Kristaps Porzingis. The Mavericks inserted Willie Cauley-Stein in their starting line-up which paid immediate dividends as he got 15 points and 7 rebounds in the win against the Rockets. The Nuggets are figuring out their rotations and get overly reliant on the all-purpose Center Nikola Jokic. However, Jamal Murray is having a stellar season yet again and has tried his best to minimize the load on Nikola. This game will be played at the Nuggets home court and both teams will look to attain a 50% win record after registering 8 games. Nuggets has still more than 60 games to correct their record and with a talent like Jokic, it may not be a surprise if they end up in the upper half of the NBA Western Conference standings.

DEN vs DAL Dream11 Match Prediction
Denver Nuggets will have an upper-hand at their home court and are hungry to set their record straight. This game will feature a mouth-watering match-up at the Point Guard between Luka Doncic and Jamal Murray. Mavericks will face difficulty guarding Nikola Jokic in absence of Kristaps Porzingis, so they’d have to rely upon the athletic Willie-Cauley Stein. Mavericks have seen contributions from Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jalen Brunson that must boost the confidence in their bench depth. This match-up will be an exciting one considering the host of Guards who will perform in it.

Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns, Key Players:
Nikola Jokic
PPG: 24.1
APG: 11.9
RPG: 11.7
SPG: 1.4
Nikola Jokic is averaging a mind-boggling triple-double so far in the young season and is reminding everyone of Russell Westbrook’s three such seasons in a row from 2016-2019. This type of performance also makes Nikola an MVP-candidate but his team’s record may suggest otherwise. Jokic continued his imposing season, as he registered 35 points, 15 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block in the win against the Timberwolves. These type of arresting performances makes Jokic an automatic pick for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up, although Luka Donic might have a thing or two to say about that.

Luka Doncic
PPG: 25.8
RPG: 9.0
APG: 7.2
The wunderkind Luka leads Mavericks in per-game averages when it comes to PPG, RPG, and APG. He has begun the season where he left off during the last one and has been a force at the Point Guard position. He is coming off a superb performance in the win against the Rockets, registering 33 points, 16 rebounds, and 11 assists, showcasing his talent at just the age of 21 years. Luka will surely like to cut down on his turnovers as he had 8 in the previous game.
Jamal Murray
PPG: 22.2
RPG: 4.0
APG: 3.0
Murray has had some stellar scoring games this season and as a second option on the team, he does a terrific job of producing offense at the Point Guard position. He is the key to Nuggets’ ascension after they had a superb last season. He lodged 13 points, 3 assists, and 1 rebound in the win against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Michael Porter Jr.
PPG: 19.5
RPG: 6.8
BPG: 1.5
The young forward has been a revelation for the Nuggets and has found ways to be relevant in just 4 games. His contributions have been immense but he is still acclimatizing after his injury. He registered 30 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 assist against the Timberwolves, showing how much talent he has, and how it can help his team moving forward.

Sleeper Picks:
Tim Hardaway Jr.: The Guard/Forward is the third option for the Dallas Mavericks and has played a crucial role for them. He is averaging 17 PPG and 4 RPG and is coming off a superb night against the Rockets, lodging 30 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 assists on an incredible 78.6% FG.
Josh Richardson: The starting Guard for Mavericks has started decently and is averaging 13.7 PPG and 3.1 RPG. He is coming 15 points, 1 rebound, and 1 steal performance in the winning effort against the Rockets.
JaMychal Green: The big forward has come up big off the bench in just three games. He is averaging 13 PPG and 5 RPG and may see an increase in his minutes due to these outings. He lodged 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 assist in the win against the T’Wolves.

Note
James Johnson leads the Mavericks in steals with 1.4 SPG.
Will Barton posted 20 points in the win versus the Timberwolves.
Nikola Jokic leads the Nuggets in steals with 1.4 SPG.
