*Stats from Regular Season*
The tall Davis has shown once again why the Lakers can be unstoppable many times. He has been on fire during the Playoffs and the Suns’ defense has had no answer for him. Davis’ form has put Suns in jeopardy and in Game 3, he continued his streak, bundling up 34 points and 11 rebounds. He can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Projected Fantasy Points: 46
LeBron’s return to the roster has again made the Lakers a dominant force and it is visible as they are giving a lot of hiccups to a team that finished 2nd in the Western Conference. James has been able to impose his will many times during the series and in game 3, he lodged 21 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds.
Devin is one of the best scorers in the league and he can be a matchup nightmare for even the best perimeter defenders in the League. This is the first he has been in the Playoffs and it will interesting to see how he plays in a scenario where his team is down 2-1 against the Lakers. In Game 3, the Lakers perimeter defense shut him down, as he shot 6/19 and could only manage 19 points.
CP-3 helped the Suns mount an impressive regular season campaign and perform the majority of Playmaking duties for them. However, he has been shut down by terrific Lakers’ defense and his offensive impact has taken a substantial hit. In Game 3, he could only muster 7 points and 6 assists.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.4 RPG: 10.5 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 37

Dennis Schroeder: PPG: 15.4 APG: 5.8 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.7 PFP: 28
