MIL vs SAC Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Milwaukee Bucks vs Sacramento Kings

Share

MIL vs SAC Dream11: NBA midseason window is here and it has been a turbulent time many times but yes, this is how things are for some teams who began even on a high note. And this is also a window that can more often than not result in multiple trades. This can mean that there can be line-up shuffles and a change in the overall dynamics of the season for different teams. Anyway, in this game, the Milwaukee Bucks will meet the Sacramento Kings in an East-West affair.

The Bucks have had a here-and-there season but by every means, they remain a more than formidable contender title as they defend their championship. Milwaukee has been getting amazing production from Giannis once again, which continues to be a decisive factor in their long season.

On the other hand, the Sacramento Kings have repeated the same old script, frustrating their fans through some underwhelming play, only getting worse by each month it seems. One thing is for sure if things continue like this for three-four games, trades are just on the way.

Host: Milwaukee Bucks
Visitors: Sacramento Kings
Match Timing: 23 January, @ 05:30 AM
Venue: Fiserv Forum

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Bucks: Holiday season
Jrue Holiday has been one of the most vital options on the guard position for a couple of seasons for the Bucks. Without him, the guard position loses major production and the team balance suffers a lot. And Milwaukee felt that when Jrue went missing from the picture this month, losing about 70% of their games without him. The Bucks have been doing a great job on the offensive end all season long but if Middleton is off from the field and Portis is not scoring much, the Bucks effort can crumble especially late in the game when going to Antetokounmpo on the offensive end becomes like an obvious choice. Let us now talk about other players, where the team’s balance also has been hurt due to the departure of PJ Tucker and the absence of Brook Lopez. Even if Lopez gave 10-15 points and 7-8 rebounds a game, he did a wonderful job of playing the last line of defense and also provide brilliant defender at the Center position, trust me, Brook has been huge for the Bucks, he is one of the most understated players in the NBA mainstream scenario. Will the current Bucks team get back in the groove and make an advancement towards the title? Yes, they are for me still a strong contender.

Kings: Same old, same old
Sacramento Kings have had another terrible season. And well, if you are a Kings fan, what do you say? You say “Well, and yes, water is wet”. The Kings have continued to underwhelm fans, again, failing to gain any semblance of balance, and even against teams with losing records, they have struggled so much that they are out of the game before the half, looking out-of-sync. Well, they have done decently on offense but their defense has been at the lowest this month, continually giving away 120 or so points, clearly indicating that it is an end that the team needs to fix that end. But where is the fixing for the Kings? They have drafted players that don’t fit it into the system, or I don’t know, they have not developed their talent well. This is why I fear that Fox and Haliburton, two highly talented guards can also end up leaving the team considering how these losses that rack up on a regular basis can make other avenues attractive. See, I know players like Kobe have said that most players treat the game as a profession to make money, but hey, I am sure of one thing, winning always boosts confidence on some level. Well, my point is we can’t judge what a player wants on effort and outward appearances alone, for the Kings, I am sure there are players who are tired of losing. For the Kings, I think it is more of a management issue than anything.
