PHX vs LAL Dream11 Team Prediction Basketball, NBA Preseason, Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers, 17 December

PHX vs. LAL Dream 11 Team Prediction, NBA Preseason: PHX vs LAL Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Guess who is back in the mix? Of course, it is the ultimate ruler of the league right now, LeBron James, along with his partner-in-crime Anthony Davis. The duo will return to action after skipping the first two preseason games and look to resume their winning ways as they take on the budding Phoenix Suns. As the preseason slowly comes to its concluding stages, Suns will look to acclimatize the duo of veteran star guard Chris Paul and young scoring machine Devin Booker. While the Lakers will look to imbibe its new talents after winning the championship last season, the Suns will start their Playoffs hunt after missing out during the last 10 seasons. One can count upon LeBron to make things interesting whether it is preseason or regular season. Pheonix Suns come into this game after twin losses to Utah Jazz, though Booker scored 27 points in the last game to resume his winning ways. For the reigning champions, Talen Horton-Tucker performed exceptionally well in their win against the Clippers, hoarding 33 points and grabbing 10 boards. This one promises to be an exciting game, despite it being preseason.

Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers Key Players:

LeBron James- LeBron has been reigning as the ultimate Super-player pick in the league for more than a decade. He is a no-brainer for that status and is coming off an NBA Finals MVP performance during the lockdown-infested season. He racked up 25.3 PPG, 7.8 RPG and led the league in Assists with 10.2 APG. He is a hot pick for the Dream 11 Fantasy basketball match-up.

Anthony Davis- The glorious PF was the most intimidating big man on the court during last season. He is coming off a borderline MVP season, averaging 26.1 PPG, grabbing a tremendous 10.3 RPG while having 2.3 BPG, and also being a thief with 1.5 SPG. These numbers are impressive and he can be a contributor as a Power-Pick as he is an all-around player.

Devin Booker- Booker is coming off an impressive 27 Points outing against Jazz and it is unlikely that he will change his ways against the mighty Lakers. He is a scoring machine and is on his way to dominating teams offensively.

Chris Paul: Although he is coming off a not-so-Chris-Paul-like performance with 5 points and 6 assists, he is still acclimatizing to his new team and a broader role with the young Suns. He should be relied upon though to rack up multiple assists and showcase his play-making abilities.

Sleeper Picks- Talen-Horton Tucker- Tucker had a brilliant performance against the Clippers where he scooped up 10 rebounds and was a scoring threat with 33 points. He should be considered as a pick based upon that performance.

Kyle Kuzma- Kyle scored 25 points in his last outing while dishing 4 assists and 6 rebounds. Watch out for him again to shine.

Montrezl Harrell:
The feisty Harrell had a double-double during the last game with 17 points and 11 rebounds. He is always consistent with his performance. He is a great pick in the Fantasy match-up.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers Match Prediction
Although it is just preseason, the Lakers appear to be red-hot with their wins against the Clippers, and any team with the talents like LeBron James and Anthony Davis is an automatic threat to win. Though preseason games are more about pinning combinations and loosen up for the regular season, the likes of LeBron James are not going to take a day off and let the opponents dictate even such an exhibition game. Watch out for the Lakers as their MVP-like duo return on the floor to wreak havoc. On the other hand, Chris Paul will hunt for some rhythm and dictate the terms of the game with his playmaking abilities and there is no doubt that the unconscious scorer Devin Booker will look to dominate with his scoring
