*Stats from postseason*
PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 56
Jokic is central to the Nuggets’ offensive schemes and his overall game provides them a lift and the fact that he won the NBA MVP this season also implies what a huge talent he is in the whole league. His importance can be underscored by the fact that he has led the Nuggets in scoring during the 7 games in the Playoffs so far. He was stifled a little by Ayton in Game 1, still accounting for 22 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocks. These types of performances make him a superb candidate for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
D-Book is the scoring leader of the Suns and has continued his resolute form in the Playoffs as well. He has not seen such success at the professional level before and playing with CP-3 has made him even more lethal. Devin put up 21 points and 8 assists in Game 1, shooting an impressive 67% from the field.
Paul is known for his spectacular playmaking, late-game scoring, and gritty defense, the skills which allow the Suns to have one of the most formidable backcourts in Paul and Booker. CP-3 was not effective on the offensive end in the series against LA but seems to have gotten back to his old ways if Game 1 is the indication. He racked up 21 points, 11 assists, and 6 rebounds in the Game 1 triumph.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Michael gives a lot of sauce at the Forward position and has helped the Nuggets overcome the loss of Murray who got injured around midseason. Porter is a reliable option and without him, the Nuggets might have been scratched out in the first round itself. The Forward scooped up 15 points and 7 rebounds in the Game 1 loss. He is questionable for the game.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 16.4 RPG: 10.6 TPG: 1.0 PFP: 34
Ayton has proved that he is one of the most polished Centers in the league, who can score, rebound, defend, and perform hustle plays. He was impressive in Game 1, racking up 20 points and 10 rebounds.
Aaron Gordon: PPG: 13.3 RPG: 6.1 PFP: 22
Gordon has upped his game during the Playoffs and continues to be an important part of this depleted Nuggets team. The Forward was impressive in Game 1, locking in 18 points.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 11.3 RPG: 4.3 SPG: 1.6 PFP: 30
Bridges struggled offensively in the series against the LA Lakers but displayed superb skills in the Game 1 win against Denver. He scratched 23 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals in the superb victory.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 11.9 RPG: 4.7 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 25
