LAL vs PHX Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns

Updated on: Oct 5, 2022 10:15 pm IST

  • LAL vs PHX Dream11: The NBA Preseason is on and the action has gone as expected as we haven’t seen the full strength of any squads so far. Preseason is about making the final tweaks to the roster, to see what deep bench players will stay and what players can enjoy a bigger role. But apart from that, it is just getting the legs back for what will be a long season again. In this Preseason match-up, the Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Phoenix Suns.

    If the last game was any barometer, the Lakers failed miserably losing 75-105 despite Anthony Davis’ quickfire double-double. With that loss, the Lakers have now lost seven preseason games in a row.

    On the other hand, the Suns suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of the Adelaide 36ers, losing 124-134 despite Cameron Payne’s 23 points effort.

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Lakers: Same old?

    The Preseason game wasn’t a soothing adventure for the Lakers’ fanbase who realized that the team may have some cracks when they lost all of the six games in the last edition’s preseason. Still, it is early days, and the core of LeBron, Davis, and Westbrook will have to prove the doubters wrong, especially Westbrook. The idea of bringing Dennis Schroder seems like a wise one but the trouble is fitting in the guard pieces and again, the team does seem to lack a laser shooter from deep. Even if Davis can play Center, the Lakers will need their bigs such as Thomas Bryant to come up big time and be a strong cover for Anthony.

    Suns: How will they respond?

    A loss to the 36ers has to hurt, after all, they lost to a non-NBA team and in a rather embarrassing fashion, with their three-point defense looking completely fazed out. But hey, it is clear that it wasn’t their best effort on defense either, far from it, and for a team that lost to Mavs in seven games last season after being up three-two and entering Playoffs with the best record, there are concerns to be ironed out. The roster is stacked from top to bottom and it will not be a surprise if the Suns make it to at least the Western Semis again. But what about a deep run?

    NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

    LeBron James(LAL)
    James made none of his seven shots in the last game but hey, it is just preseason. His eyes will be on the Regular Season which will begin soon.

    Chris Paul(PHX)
    Paul dropped 12 assists in just 22 minutes and what else is new for the greatest Floor General of his generation? Will he lift the Playoffs curse this season though/

    Russell Westbrook(LAL)
    This is the season that defines Russell’s career trajectory. He is already falling out of his prime but can he have one last flame before going down?

    Devin Booker(PHX)
    Booker is one of the best shot-creators in the world but he will need to make a deep Playoffs run with what can be easily called a stacked roster around him.

    Anthony Davis(LAL)
    Davis notched a double-double in under 20 minutes during the last game and remains an elite Power Forward. But will his health enable him to stick around for at least 55 games this season?
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-46

    Mikal Bridges(PHX)
    Wing Mikal has been in superb touch since last season and he is one of the best defenders in the league. Let us see how he responds this season?
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-36

    LAL vs PHX DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Kendrick Nunn(LAL): Nunn is a solid defender but the Lakers will need him to make the long-ball too.
    • Deandre Ayton(PHX): Ayton is one of the best inside players in the league who can also provide powerful rebounding and defense.
    • Juan Toscano-Anderson(LAL): Juan can carve out a big role with the Lakers as a backup wing.
    • Cameron Johnson(PHX): Cameron has shown impressive returns as a wing and this season, he can become a regular starter.
    • Cameron Payne(PHX): Payne has been a solid producer off the bench for the Suns.
    • Patrick Beverley(LAL): Beverley will give the Lakers a much-needed defensive punch.
    • Lonnie Walker IV:(LAL): Lonnie is a streaky player and he can provide Lakers with much-needed guard depth.
    • Damion Lee(PHX): Can Lee scrape out a 15-20 minutes role?
