NBA Preseason is more like a training ground for the athletes before the real deal in the Regular Season. In this game, Houston Rockets is going to battle it out versus Miami Heat. More about HOU vs MIA Dream11 will be given below.
Houston Rockets is going through a rebuild after trading NBA legend James Harden. Last season the team had an abysmal record but that comes as no surprise. The team drafted crossover expert Jalen Green as the number two pick and will look to build around Kevin Porter Jr. Daniel Theis and Christian Wood give a decent look at the frontcourt but this can be another experimental and development year.
Miami made a major move in the offseason after acquiring Lowry. That gives the team two gritty and hustle players at the perimeter in Butler and Kyle. Heat had a below-par 2020-21 season and will look to bounce back after making some changes. Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson provide depth at guard positions and this year Heat can perform better if the players remain healthy.

Kevin Porter Jr. is an intriguing young talent.
Tyler Herro is among the stellar scorers in the league.
Kevin Porter Jr.(HOU)
Kevin led his team in scoring and assists during the last match. Shot five out of ten threes in the last match. A dynamic guard who can light it up from the long-range and a rebuilding piece for Houston.
Herro led his team in points during the last game. The guard shot 9/12 from the floor in the last match. Will be huge this season for the Heat outfit and can enable them for a deep playoff run. He is a candidate for the Super/Pro-Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Bam is among the versatile bigs in the league. He can pound in the paint and scoop up boards and inside points. How will the big contribute to Miami’s cause this season?
Wood has shown the ability to average between 15-20 points and 10 rebounds, meaning a double-double. Can the big make a home for himself in Houston or is he a “filler” player during the rebuild?
Robinson is one of the most elite players in the game and has done an incredible job of stretching the floor. Shot 4/6 from three in the last game.
Daniel finished the last season on a high note after getting traded from Boston. He can provide great shooting and decent rebounding at the big spot.
Kyle led the team in assists during the last game. He is the definition of heart and hustle. He will be key if Miami wants to have a strong season.
Green has superb handles and will receive a ton of minutes to develop his game in Houston. The number two pick can form a terrific young pair with Kevin Porter Jr.
Vincent will look to become a backup PG in the team playing consistent minutes. There is no doubt about his talents but how will he fit into this team? An interesting player who can make a difference.
Sengun got drafted as the number 16 pick. He can make the Forward spot his own if he steps up to the floor.
