*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 52
Young has been on fire since he has arrived in the Association and his superb dribbling, scoring, and playmaking skills rank him among the top PGs in the League. Trae has carried the Hawks to new heights this season and continued to be impressive, posting 32 points, 10 assists, and 7 rebounds. He is one of the best candidates for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Randle exceeded expectations and became one of the elite players who has had 20 ponts+ and 10 rebounds+ season averages. He has been in incredible touch all season and has become one of the best playmakers at his position too. Randle didn’t produce as much in Game 1, being relegated to 15 points and 12 rebounds.
Capela’s defense makes it tougher to score inside and with the Knicks lacking a high-scoring Center, his focus can shift on Julius Randle. He is also known for his superb rebounding skills and can score inside too. He reeled in 9 points and 13 rebounds in the win.
RJ is known for his offensive capabilities and he will be tested big-time in this high-quality series. Barrett will need to shed some nerves and look to lodge big scoring nights for his squad to prevail. He ended up with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the Game 1 loss.
John Collins: PPG: 17.6 RPG: 7.4 BPG: 1.0 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 34
The athletic PF can be assertive on the offensive end and give the Hawks a lot of lift on the defensive end too. He collected 12 points and 7 rebounds in Game 1 win
Derrick Rose(Since joining Knicks): PPG: 14.9 APG: 4.2 TPG: 1.4
Rose can impose his will off the bench and has given the Knicks a reliable option at the PG spot. He displayed his skills in the loss against the Hawks too, managing 17 points, 5 assists, and 5 rebounds.
Bogdan Bogdanovic: PPG: 16.4 RPG: 3.6 APG: 3.3 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 35
Bogdan’s form in the second half of the season made the Hawks highly competitive team. The same form carried through the first game, where he ended up with 18 points.
Nerlens Noel: PPG: 5.1 RPG: 6.4 BPG: 2.2 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.1 PFP: 29
