Suns vs Pacers Fantasy NBA: The Phoenix Suns will march into this game after beating the Portland Trailblazers behind a 35 points outing by their stellar guard Devin Booker. On the other hand, the Indiana Pacers will enter the contest after losing a close battle to the Lakers despite a 29 points effort by Malcolm Brogdon. More details about PHX vs IND Dream11 NBA will be related here.
Suns’ season: This is the best season Suns has had in years and for a team that has missed the playoffs for more than a decade, the results of rebuilding have been paying off. Booker is the offensive engine, Paul is the playmaking engine, and the rest of the cast fits in well with this highly-talented backcourt of the Suns.
Pacers’ season: Indiana Pacers are slipping from the NBA standings and their poor play and offensive lapses have meant that they have a losing record. They may need to make some trades or wait for Caris LeVert to be healthy to make a push for the Playoffs. Right now, Indiana needs to figure out the way forward before it is too late.

D-Book is one of the elitist scorers in the league and he has helped the Suns to produce an impressive record. Book was amazing during last month, where he averaged 28 PPG and displayed that he should be considered for the All-Star team. Booker is a terrific option as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Sabonis has been having a terrific season and his all-around abilities enable him to be a huge factor. He has done his bit on the offensive end but the Pacers have still troubles stitching together wins. Sabonis will need to be more proactive defensively and keep growing for the Pacers to get going.
Brogdon has developed into a 20+ points scorer with the Pacers and continues to shine at the guard position in all respects. He struggled in the month of February compared to the rest of the months but he still had managed average PPG in the last 5 games, including two 29 points games in two out of the last 3.
CP-3 has transformed Suns into a mature and well-oiled unit. His assisting, scoring, and defense is 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.
Myles Turner: PPG: 13.5 RPG: 6.5 BPG: 3.4 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 35
Myles is a defensive monster and his stat line indicates that clearly as he also leads the league in BPG. He is also able to shoot decently and finish at the rim from time to time.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.4 RPG: 11.2 BPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.8 PFP: 34
Ayton is a terrific young player at both ends of the floor and has given his team a lot of ammo.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 13.8 RPG: 5.0 PFP: 24
Bridges is an essential component for the Phoenix Suns’ machinery and his two-way skills have made his team a sturdy unit to beat every night.
Dario Saric: PPG: 11.4 RPG: 4.1 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 24
Justin Holiday: PPG: 11.7 RPG: 4.0 SPG: 1.2 PFP: 25
TJ McConnell: PPG: 6.7 APG: 6.8 SPG: 2.0 TPG: 1.9 PFP: 26
