D-Book has been on a tear recently and has lodged multiple 20 points+ games in a row and has even eclipsed the 30 points mark this season multiple times. Booker is the mainstay at the offensive end for the Suns. He is coming off another incredible game, lodging 34 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists. He can be taken as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Terry is an incredible scorer at the PG spot for the Hornets and his production has been impressive this month as he has garnered 26.5 PPG in February. Rozier had a rather tough night in the game against the Jazz, managing only 12 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, and 2 steals.
CP-3 is an elite-level leader and he has proven once again that his skills can make a team from an ordinary to a Playoffs team. He has changed the dynamics of the Phoenix Suns and has been in great touch. He is coming off a tough outing in the win against the Trailblazers, hitting only 2 points, 9 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1 steal.
LaMelo is one of the popular names in the basketball world and he has earned his reputation by high-quality passing, rebounding, and scoring. He posted an impressive stat-line in the encounter against the Jazz, posting 21 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals in the loss against Utah.
DeAndre Ayton: PPG: 13.9 RPG: 11.9 BPG: 1.9 PFP: 31
DeAndre Ayton is an impressive defensive player and supplements decent scoring inside the paint. He is also an elite rebounder and has performed well this season. He registered 19 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal in the win against the Trailblazers.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 13.9 RPG: 5.8 BPG: 1.0 PFP: 29
Bridges have been an impressive SF for the Suns and his youth indicates that he still has a lot of potential. He bagged 10 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks in the win against Portland.
P.J. Washington: PPG: 11.5 RPG: 6.3 APG: 3.0 BPG: 1.2 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 26

Malik Monk is averaging 10.9 PPG for the Hornets. PFP: 19

C: Deandre Ayton, Frank Kaminsky
The Hornets have not been able to consistently envelop the team in the defense and they have also had shooting the long ball. On the other, the Suns are sky-high in confidence and look more ominous at their home floor. Charlotte will need contributions from Mikal Bridges and Bismack Biyombo against the bench of Phoenix which has players like Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne, and Dario Saric.
