PHX vs DAL Dream11 Team Prediction: Pheonix Suns missed out on the playoffs last season. This season they will enter with aspirations of entering the Playoffs race and go as far as they can. Both Suns and Mavericks still lack the apparatus to make it to the Championship but have emerging young talent that has captivating eyes of millions. For Dallas, that star is Luka Doncic, who is known for racking up triple-doubles on a constant basis, ala Magic Johnson. For Phoenix Suns, it is the scoring juggernaut by the name of Devin Booker. The initial part of the season will be tough for Dallas without their star player Kristaps Porzingis. Suns, on the other hand, acquired a veteran Point Guard in Chris Paul who will seek to decrease the load on Devin Booker. This matchup will feature a host of talent and both teams will look for a win to begin their young season.

Suns vs Mavericks Match Prediction
Mavericks are shorthanded without their stalwart big man Porzingis and rely mostly upon Luka Donic, the youngster who usually does deliver upon the promise. For the Suns, the departure of Kelly Oubre Jr. means that they are a bit short-handed in the Forward spot in comparison to last year. Even after acquiring Chris Paul, the roster lacks depth, and to overcome this lack of depth, they will need Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and DeAndre Ayton to have big nights consistently. This game may tilt on the way of the Suns because of the Guard combo and defensive presence of DeAndre Ayton.
Phoenix Suns vs Dallas Mavericks, Key Players:
Luka Doncic: Luka posted MVP like numbers in his young career last season. He is prime to become a Superstar player in the League and his career trajectory looks highly impressive. During the last season, He averaged a phenomenal 28.8 PPG, seized 9.4 RPG, and handed over 8.8 APG, these numbers are the reflection of a player primed to become an MVP in the near future. Luka is an automatic Super-Power player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up. He will hope to hang a banner for the Dallas Mavericks someday.
Devin Booker: D-Book is a scoring machine, he can score inside and outside, plus his shooting weapons are limitless. He averaged an impressive 26.8 PPG, along with 6.5 APG and 4.2 RPG, numbers that display his prowess over the game. D-Book will look to shoot for the scoring title this season and reach new heights with the help of Chris Paul. He can be used Pro-player in the Fantasy match-up.
DeAndre Ayton: Ayton is an incredible two-way player and will look to have a breakout season this year. Last season, he piled up double-doubles, and ended up with the averages of 18.2 PPG, 11.5 RPG, while his defensive presence helped him to get 1.5 BPG. A wonderful grab for fantasy lovers.
Chris Paul: While Chris is no more in the prime of his year, he is still an efficient and brilliant Point Guard. He averaged 17.6 PPG, 6.7 APG, 5 RPG, and 1.6 SPG during his last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He will look to enrich the Phoenix Suns so they can gain fresh grounds in the NBA world this season.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: Tim will be the second scoring option for Dallas this season. Last season he finished with the averages of 15.7 PPG and 3.1 RPG. He will look to have consistency in terms of scoring because Dallas Mavericks need some depth in the scoring department.
Josh Richardson: Josh is a decent scorer and will be handling scoring duties alongside the wunderkind Luka Doncic, and Tim Hardaway Jr. Last season, he shined with the averages of 13.7 PPG, 3.2 RPG, and 2.9 APG. He has a great chance to improve his numbers with the combination of Luka Doncic.
Dwight Powell: Dwight is a fantastic bench player and averaged 9.2 PPG and 5.7 RPG during last season. He will play a crucial role in absence of the starting PF Porzingis and will look to up his game this season.
Note– Maxi Kleber averaged 1.1 BPG last season for the Dallas Mavericks.
Langston Galloway of the Phoenix Suns can be an interesting fantasy option as he averaged 10.3 PPG during last season.
