Suns vs Bulls Fantasy NBA: The Phoenix Suns will enter the game after beating the Hawks rallying around a 21 points performance by Devin Booker. On the other hand, the Chicago Bulls will hit the floor after losing to the Warriors despite a 21 points performance by Nikola Vucevic. More details and a lineup will be given in the PHX vs CHI Dream11 article.
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. THe red-hot team also have a deep bench with talents like Cameron Payne, Cameron Johnson, and Dario Saric. They are placed at an impressive 2nd in the Western Conference.
Bulls’season: Chicago is fueled by Zach Lavine and he provides the thrust for them to garner some wins. They are a young and inexperienced squad, so being placed at the 10th spot in the NBA standings for the Eastern Conference is a decent return. Bulls will have to be patient with their young players if they are to build something special long-term.

Projected Fantasy Points: 45
Lavine has been one of the most effective offensive players in the league. He has kept his team in the Playoffs hunt and has been a nightmare to defend for most teams. LaVine is questionable for the game as his ankle has been bothering him. If he plays then he can be selected as the Super-Player for the Dream11 NBA scenario.
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 5.4 RPG and 1.2 SPG for the last 5 games.
CP-3 has transformed Suns into a mature and well-oiled unit. His playmaking, 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 1.6 SPG for the last 5 games.
Vucevic started the season with Orlando Magic and became the primary scorer there, but now with Chicago, he starts afresh and will play with the talented LaVine. The big man has the touch to finish inside and also shoot from mid-range at an efficient chip. He has averaged 21.0 PPG, 9.0 RPG, and 4.5 APG since he has joined the Bulls.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.8 RPG: 11.0 BPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 36
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 16.4 PPG and 12.4 RPG for the last 5 games.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.0 RPG: 5.0 PFP: 20
The veteran Forward has helped bolster the defense of the Suns and has also chipped in with decent scoring.
Patrick Williams: PPG: 9.7 RPG: 4.9 PFP: 18
The Forward is known for his defensive abilities and can scratch out decent offensive production every now and then.
Thaddeus Young: PPG: 12.0 RPG: 6.4 APG: 4.4 SPG: 1.3 TPG: 2.1 PFP: 29
Dario Saric: PPG: 9.8 RPG: 4.2 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 20
