For Pacers, Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis have been stellar and have been able to put up great scoring nights to assist their team. On the other hand, the Phoenix Suns are entering the game after losing a back-and-forth battle with the Detroit Pistons away from home. Despite the loss, the Suns have begun the season on a stellar note and have only lost 3 of their 9 games. For Suns, their young core of Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges, DeAndre Ayton, and Devin Booker has performed exceptionally well and the future looks bright for them if these players continue their development.

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

IND vs PHX Dream11 Match Prediction
Both teams are having a great season, and have won most of their games so far, but the Phoenix Suns are comparatively a healthier team than the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers are right now thin at the SF spot without T.J. Warren and need production from the likes of Justin Holiday. For the Suns, Cameron Johnson and Mikal Bridges have provided them immense depth at the Small Forward spot, and are primed to be consistent contributors. The Suns can sneak one against the Pacers despite playing away from home, but they do need to watch out for the talented Malcolm Brogdon who is playing like a star player.

Indiana Pacers vs Phoenix Suns, Key Players:
Domantas Sabonis
PPG: 20.8
RPG: 11.4
APG: 6.4
Sabonis has become an all-around player, just like his father Arvydas, and is looking like a terrific player for the future. He has contributed consistently and has helped out Pacers to achieve a winning record. He 22 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 block in the win against the Houston Rockets. He can be used as a Super-Pick player for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball showdown, although he is not a clear-cut favorite.

Malcolm Brogdon
PPG: 23.6
APG: 7.0
RPG: 4.1
SPG: 2.0
Contrary to projections, it is not Victor Oladipo or Domantas Sabonis who is the primary scorer for the Pacers right now, it is Malcolm, who is having a breakout season. He has become a terrific scorer and is racking up great scoring games. His last performance indicates his talent as 25 points, 7 assists, 2 rebounds, and 3 steals in the game against the Rockets. He can be considered for the Pro-Player pick.

Devin Booker
PPG: 21.5
APG: 4.6
RPG: 3.8
D-Book has had not similar scoring season like the last one, but he is still the primary scorer for the Phoenix Suns. Although it has not been a poor sign for the Suns, as they have won through team effort and have not over-relied on the talent of Booker. He posted 23 points, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block in the Suns’ OT loss to the Pistons.
Victor Oladipo
PPG: 20.4
RPG: 6.0
APG: 4.3
