Suns vs Hawks Fantasy NBA: The Phoenix Suns will come into the contest after beating the Charlotte Hornets in an Overtime Thriller behind a 35 points performance by Devin Booker. On the other hand, the Atlanta Hawks will enter the battle after losing to the Nuggets despite a 21 points performance by Trae Young. More details about PHX vs ATL Dream11 will be given here.
Suns’ season: Suns have been the surprise of the season, but if we observe their roster then their record makes sense. They have a machine gun scorer in Booker, a veteran PG in Paul, a defensive juggernaut in DeAndre Ayton, and emerging talent in Mikal Bridges. They also have a deep bench with talents like Cameron Payne and Dario Saric.
Hawks’ season: Atlanta has hit strides since March and remains in contention for Playoffs, ranking 6th in the NBA standings for a thin Eastern Conference. They were in superb form in midseason but have now lost a couple in a row. John Collins has become an effective scorer and rebounder, and a lot of the momentum will rest upon him apart from Young and Capela.

D-Book is one of the elitist scorers in the league and he has helped the Suns to produce an impressive record. Booker has benefited from playing with CP-3 which has decreased his load. He is averaging 6.6 RPG and 1.4 SPG for the last 5 games. He is a great candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Young has been in subliminal form this season and he is one of the most mouth-watering shooters and playmakers in the league. His sniper-like shooting and dime dropping has enabled Hawks to acquire an average record and he has made sure that they remain in the Playoffs hunt.
CP-3 has transformed Suns into a mature and well-oiled unit. His ball distribution, scoring, and defense are even better than the numbers suggest, and his impact can be felt upon the team record this season. CP3 has also helped ease the load on Devin Booker which means that the team’s distribution is more even. He is averaging 1.8 SPG for the last 5 games.
Collins is an incredible young player who is extremely athletic and can score in a variety of ways. His status with the team is unclear but he has continued to perform well. He has averaged 19.3 PPG, 8.6 RPG, and 1.3 BPG this month and is looking to improve in every facet of the game.
Clint Capela: PPG: 14.6 RPG: 14.1 BPG: 2.2 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 40
Capela has become one of the best rebounders in the league and his athleticism also enables him to be an effective offensive and defensive player. He benefits from playing with a playmaker like Trae Young, and he has built a great home for himself in the city of Atlanta.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.8 RPG: 11.0 BPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 34
Ayton is a terrific young player at both ends of the floor and has given his team a lot of ammo. Ayton is having a great season and will be key for the Suns once they make the Playoffs. He is averaging 19.4 PPG for the last 5 games.
Danilo Gallinari: PPG: 12.8 RPG: 3.7 PFP: 19
The veteran Forward continues to provide high-quality shooting and has been a great presence for the young Hawks.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.0 RPG: 5.0 PFP: 20
Kevin Huerter: PPG: 11.6 RPG: 3.5 APG: 3.5 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 28
