NBA Preseason serves as the training ground for the NBA athletes before a lengthy season begins. In this match, Memphis Grizzlies take on the reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks. More about MEM vs MIL Dream11 will be given below.
Predicting lineups for a Preseason game can be a tricky affair. Coaches use random combinations, try out the depth of the bench, and also focus on developing young talent. However, different coaches employ different strategies but a superstar playing lesser minutes or skipping games here is no surprise.
Memphis Grizzlies played gritty basketball last season with Ja Morant being the engine. The team lost considerable scoring up-front after trading Jonas Valanciunas but did acquire a hustle player in Steven Adams. It is clear that the team is banking upon the development of young players in Jaren Jackson and Xavier Tillman so the management is thinking long-term.
Milwaukee Bucks didn’t make any major moves in the offseason and why should they! The team is coming off a championship season and will look to repeat with a roster that is already well-balanced and has depth. The team did lose PJ Tucker in the offseason who brought a lot of defensive energy last season.
