More details on PHX vs DEN Dream11  will be given here.

PHX vs DEN Dream11 NBA Playoffs Game 1: This series is interesting in many ways but if we talk about the roster make-up then the Suns are healthy compared to the Nuggets but Denver has constantly defied odds and has come through. The Suns are a better defensive unit than Portland and the Nuggets may have to come out of shootout mode to overcome their threat. The Suns will need a lot of defense from Ayton to put brakes on Jokic.

PHX vs DEN Dream11 Team| Player Stats

*Stats from postseason*
Nikola Jokic

PPG: 33.0
RPG: 10.5
APG: 4.5
SPG: 1.3
TPG: 2.7
PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 56
There is a reason why the big man has been heralded as a favorite for the NBA MVP award as he continues to rack up points and pulverize opposing defenses. Nikola has shown that he takes his scoring and intensity up a notch during the Playoffs and has built a great career already in the Nuggets jersey. For his heroics, he can be chosen as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Devin Booker
PPG: 29.7
RPG: 6.2
APG: 5.0
TPG: 3.8
PFP: 48
Suns’ Playoff hopes are largely dependent upon the young shoulders of Devin who has shown that he is more than capable of taking over games and provide his team with a  lot of oomph on a nightly basis. Booker’s abilities are the prime reason why the Suns are in a position to dream about the NBA Finals and ultimately a championship.

Chris Paul
PPG: 9.2
APG: 7.7
RPG: 3.5
SPG: 1.0
TPG: 1.5
PFP: 40
Paul’s offense was down in the series against LA Lakers as he shot only 38% and was relegated to single points in most of the games. However, despite that lack in offense, he was tremendous in terms of playmaking and defense, which you always get from a player of his caliber.

Michael Porter Jr.:
PPG: 18.8
RPG: 6.7
SPG: 1.0

TPG: 1.3
PFP: 38
The Nuggets wouldn’t be in their current position if it was not for the young Porter who has risen up to the occasion and has shown that he can do a lot to fill the void left by Murray’s injury. Porter has to continue his stellar show if the Nuggets have to counter a loaded Suns team.

Deandre Ayton:  PPG: 15.8     RPG: 10.7    TPG: 1.0      PFP: 34
Deandre was huge against the Lakers and had a tremendous impact on both ends of the floor, doing the dirty work on boards and giving the team a fantastic option on the offensive end as well. However, he will have to deal with the powerful Jokic in this series which will be a headache.

Aaron Gordon: PPG: 12.5     RPG: 6.5      PFP: 22
Gordon is an athletic option at the big Forward position can bring a lot of energy on the floor. While he is not an enforcer on the offensive end, he can still provide decent scoring and will be crucial to define the Nuggets’ effort in this matchup.

Mikal Bridges:  PPG: 9.3    RPG: 4.2      SPG: 1.5      PFP: 23
Mikal’s offense has been down since the beginning of the postseason but he still brings a lot of hustle on the defensive end which is irreplaceable. The Forward will have to lock horns with a sturdy Forward lineup of the Nuggets

Jae Crowder:  PPG: 11.5      RPG: 4.7      SPG: 1.2       BPG: 1.0     PFP: 23
Facundo Campazzo:   PPG: 9.3     APG: 5.2      SPG: 1.7      TPG: 1.7      PFP: 23
Monte Morris: PPG: 15.3    APG: 5.8    RPG: 3.0     SPG: 1.3     TPG: 1.0        PFP: 33
