PHI vs MIA Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat

Share

PHI vs MIA Dream11: We have seen some exciting battles in the Playoffs already and as we head ahead, the number of teams and the number of games both will shrink as all the Conference scenarios are heading into the climatic mode. In this game, the Philadelphia 76ers will host the Miami Heat in a Semi-Final affair.

The 76ers got Joel Embiid back in the last game and he immediately proved to be a difference-maker as the 76ers clinched a 99:79 win as Danny Green made seven triples. The Heat offense looked completely wayward in Game 3 and they will need to shore up that end which has looked inconsistent. Can they make a comeback here?

Host: Philadelphia 76ers
Visitors: Miami Heat
Match Timing: 9 May, @ 05:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Wells Fargo Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Heat needs to be more aggressive versus Embiid

If we take Jimmy Butler’s production out of the fray, the Heat made 15 of their 55 shots(27%) which is not going to get it down. Jimmy made 12 of the 27 field goals and 8 of the 18 points earned at the free-throw line. To be honest, Butler has been the only consistent offensive option. Herro has been up-and-down, Lowry has disappeared while the rest of the unit has been highly inefficient too.

In the last game, the Heat didn’t see a flurry of three-point makes from Danny Green, who surely elevates his game at the home floor and when he is dipping 21 points, there are going to be problems. James Harden continues to shoot awfully from the floor but Tyrese Maxey remains a reliable offensive option. Embiid had a strong defensive and rebounding game while also having a decent offensive outing.

The Heat will need more from Herro and a 23% shooting from the three-point line won’t get it done. One huge issue for the 76ers is that they have been unable to get much going from Harden, who had 7 turnovers and shot below 40% as well. The 76ers shot around 48% from the floor but it was their defense which got it done.

*Last game stats*
Jimmy Butler(MIA)
Points: 33
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 02
Steals: 02
Jimmy made 12 of his 22 shots in the last game and he has been on another level since the Playoffs have begun. I believe he will be in 24-31 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 4-7 assists range. He is a candidate for Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 38-55

Joel Embiid(PHI)
Points: 18
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 01
Steal: 01
Blocks: 01

Joel completely shut down Adebayo in the last game and played a huge role both as a scorer and rebounder as well. I believe he will be in 17-24 points, 10-14 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-55

Tyrese Maxey(PHI)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 06
Steals: 02

Maxey nailed five of his six triples in the last game and the 76ers are lucky to have him as a superb scoring and defensive option. I believe he will be in 18-24 points and 5-7 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-36

Bam Adebayo(MIA)
Points: 09
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 01
Steals: 02
After enjoying a lot of offensive lanes in the first two games, Bam got shut down in Game 2, shooting a mere 2/9 from the floor. However, I expect him to bounce back and be in 15-21 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-39

James Harden(PHI)
Points: 17
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 06
Blocks: 01

Harden shot just 1/7 from the three-point line and committed 7 turnovers, once again not being in control this season. I expect a 15-22 points, 6-9 assists, and 5-8 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40

Tyler Herro(MIA)
Points: 14
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 01
Herro hasn’t been in his best groove as the defense has taken centerstage in Postseason, shooting just 5/15 from the floor in the last game. I believe he will be in 17-24 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 2-5 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-37

MIA vs PHI DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Tobias Harris(PHI) had 9 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals in the last game. Harris shot around just 30% in the last game but was an all-around factor. I believe he will be in 13-19 points, 8-12 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40
  • Max Strus(MIA) had 9 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 3 steals in the last game. Strus continued to struggle and made just 3 of his 11 attempts from three. I believe he will be in 9-15 points range here.
