The Clippers have to rely on George with Leonard out with an injury and he has responded courageously to the challenge. Apart from scoring, he has pulled down a lot of rebounds and has also figured in the assist column, however, the Suns’ defense has managed to make life hell for him by surrounding him with athletic defenders. Paul contributed 23 points, 16 rebounds, and 6 assists, but shot only 25% from the field. His stats make him a terrific choice. in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Booker has shown that he is more than just a scorer and has also been active on the boards and distribution of the ball. The Guard has put the Suns on his back quite often and has come up with big nights that has enabled them to make such a deep Playoff run. The guard collected 25 points and 2 steals in Game 4.
Deandre has been a huge part of the Suns’ run and his superb back-to-basket game and his incredible defense inside have helped the Suns to be an effective team on both ends. He is also a rebounding machine who has shown a lot of growth during the Playoffs. Ayton punched home 19 points, 22 rebounds, and 4 blocks in Game 4.
