MIL vs BOS Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics

Share

MIL vs BOS Dream11: The NBA Playoffs are here and we have seen some terrific battles already as almost all series look like they are going to be deep. In the Eastern Conference, the 76ers pulled themselves back and denied Heat three wins in a row. Then, the other two teams in Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics are tied one-each.

The Celtics did a great job in the last game-winning 109:86 as Jaylen Brown posted 30 points. The Bucks had a horrendous three-point shooting night and the Celtics built a strong first-half lead which became unassailable by the end of the game. The first two games have been one-sided, but will Game Three be any different?

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Close game?

The first two games were almost identical in terms of the points range on either side of the aisle and how one team built a strong lead early on. In the first game, the Bucks took a 12-point first-half lead and went on to register a win. In the second game, the Celtics built a 25-point first-half lead and then went on to win.

The Bucks were way off from the three-point line, shooting below 20% and they were thoroughly shut down from there. Antetokounmpo had a more than decent night but the Celtics defense has been surely testy against him. On the other hand, Brown and Tatum received tremendous support from Grant Williams off the bench but Derrick White was off the mark. How will Game 3 pan out?

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Jayson Tatum(BOS)
Points: 29
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 08
Steals: 03
Blocks: 01

Jayson shot 10/20 from the field and clicked on half of his ten attempts from the three-point line, having another strong defensive game as usual. I expect a 25-32 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 4-7 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 45-60

Giannis Antetokounmpo(MIL)
Points: 28
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 07
Steals: 01
Blocks: 01
Antetokounmpo shot 11/27 in the last game and he has been rather more efficient most times in his Playoffs career. I expect a 29-35 points, 8-12 rebounds, and 5-8 assists range. He is usually a candidate for Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 51-65

Jaylen Brown(BOS)
Points: 30
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 06
Steals: 02
Blocks: 01

Jaylen shot six of his ten triples in the last game and he led all scorers in the last game while being a crucial all-around presence. I expect a 24-29 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 3-6 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 42-59

Jrue Holiday(MIL)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 07
Steals: 02
Guard Holiday shot one of six from the three-point line in the last game and has been rather erratic from the perimeter. He is a terrific playmaker, and I expect a 18-24 points, 6-9 assists, and 1-2 steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40

Al Horford(BOS)
Points: 11
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 03
Steals: 04
Blocks: 01
Horford shot just one of five from the three-point line but he did a great job on the rebounding end while being a menace on the defensive end. I expect a 9-14 points, 8-11 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks/steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-34

Bobby Portis(MIL)
Points: 13
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 00
Portis shot 5/7 from the floor in the last game and he has been a strong presence in the middle for the team. I expect a 11-18 points and 7-10 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-31

MIL vs BOS DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Marcus Smart(BOS) had 10 points, 6 assists, 1 rebound in Game 1. Premier defender Marcus missed the last game but is most likely to play here. I expect a 9-15 points, 6-9 assists, and 1-3 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-30
  • Brook Lopez(MIL) had 2 points, 6 rebounds, 3 blocks in the last game. Middle man Lopez’s scoring is down in the Postseason but he is a dependable shot-blocker and a decent rebounder. I expect a 8-12 points, 5-7 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-25
  • Derrick White(BOS) had 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Derrick has been highly inefficient offensively but provides more than dependable defense. I expect a 6-11 points and 3-5 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 8-18
  • Grant Williams (BOS) had 21 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Power Forward Grant shot a brilliant 6 of nine from the three-point line in the last game. I expect a 8-13 points and 3-5 rebounds range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-22
  • Pat Connaughton(MIL) had 13 points, 1 rebound in the last game. Pat shot 6/7 from the field in the last game, doing a brilliant job. I expect a 9-14 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 8-14
  • Grayson Allen(MIL) had 5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block in the last game. Grayson shot 2/4 from the floor in the last game, lower than his usual output. I expect a 8-12 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 6-16
  • Payton Pritchard (BOS) had 6 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds in the last game. Payton shot just 2/6 in the last game but played 24 minutes as the game was a blowout. I don’t expect many minutes here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 3-11
  • Wesley Matthews (MIL) had 4 points, 4 rebounds in the last game. Wesley is primarily a defensive presence and that is what gets him major minutes. I expect a 3-7 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 6-12

Where to watch NBA Live Score?

With a tied series and two hungry teams looking to extend an advantage, who will come out on top? However, in not the most inspiring piece of news for India-based NBA viewers, this game can’t be witnessed on streaming services JIO TV and Voot, the two official streaming services for viewers in India. How can you watch this? Well, the best way is the NBA League Pass, where you can purchase the annual subscription (599 rupees per year) that gives you access to all live games while you also can catch the full game replay if you happen to miss the live stream. You can also pay for just this game and forget about the annual subscription. To learn the scores, stats, and news, go to the official website of the NBA.
