Rockets vs Suns Fantasy NBA: Houston Rockets will come into this game after losing to the Pelicans despite a 26 points performance by Kelly Olynyk. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns will hit the floor after beating the Thunder rallying around a 32 performance by Devin Booker. More details about HOU vs PHX Dream11 will be given here.
Rockets’ season: Houston has broken up their roster and will be in the rebuild mode sans the James Harden era. They shipped Victor Oladipo and with their main players in John Wall and Eric Gordon out, their makeshift roster is dependent upon Christian Wood and other role players. The Rockets are the second-worst team in the Western Conference.
Suns’ season: Phoenix Suns have made a dramatic turnaround since past seasons and have become an elite unit. The main ingredients of the successful recipe have been Chris Paul, who has brought high IQ leadership, and Devin Booker, who is having another sensational scoring season. If we add Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, and Deandre Ayton in the mix, then we have a squad that can compete on both ends of the floor. They are placed 2nd in the NBA standings for Western Conference.

Projected Fantasy Points: 47
Booker is finally getting the taste of what it is like to be on a winning team. Playing with Chris Paul who has decreased his load and development of Bridges and Ayton has insinuated more confidence in him as winning always does. He is averaging 29.8 PPG for the last 5 games, crossing the 30 points threshold thrice. He is an excellent pick-up as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
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 1.8 SPG for the last 5 games, also notching 2 double-doubles in that phase.
Wood has had a breakout season but his exploits have gone unnoticed because of the state of the roster and a large number of trades. He got injured around midseason but has averaged 19 PPG and 8.5 RPG ever since he has come back from the injury.
Ayton brings terrific rebounding and decent scoring for the Suns, but his focal points are defending the paint and making it tough for the oppositions to score. He has performed his role well and he is on his way to becoming a serviceable big man in the league.
Kelly Olynyk: PPG: 10.6 RPG: 6.0 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 30
Kelly’s role has increased in Houston and so has his minutes. He has found a rhythm with the increased playing time and he is averaging an impressive 16.3 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 3.5 APG ever since he has donned the Rockets jersey.
Kevin Porter Jr.: PPG: 15.5 APG: 6.0 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.9 PFP: 32
Porter Jr. has been a revelation amidst a chaotic season for the Rockets. The guard’s ability to score and assist makes him a piece for the future and despite having some rough edges, he is a terrific talent at 20 years of age.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 13.3 RPG: 4.8 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. He is averaging 1.8 SPG for the last 5 games.
Dario Saric: PPG: 10.4 RPG: 4.2 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 20
Jae’Sean Tate: PPG: 10.5 RPG: 5.4 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 22
