*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 46
As usual, LeBron has been a headache for the Suns to defend and has given them trouble in various other respects too. At this point, the Forward’s experience allows him to be a difference-maker and the Suns have felt that head-on. James collected 25 points, 12 rebounds, and 6 assists in Game 4. He can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario
Davis is the hallmark of an athletic PF, who can be a terror on both ends of the floor and give the opponents a lot of trouble on a constant basis. Davis has done the same against the Suns and despite playing through a severe injury, he has left his imprints all over the floor. AD played limited minutes in the last game due to his injury and could only get hold of 6 points.
Booker has been a high-quality offensive player for many years now and after having a winning season with his team, he will have his eyes locked on to making a deep Playoff run. If he keeps scoring in the 30 points territory then Suns will have a terrific chance of winning the series. In Game 4, the Lakers defense limited Booker to 17 points, but he did collect 7 rebounds and 5 assists.
CP-3 supplements top-notch playmaking and scoring for his team and has eased the burden on Booker at a considerable level. After having three poor games, he recovered for 18 points and 9 assists effort in Game 4.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.4 RPG: 10.5 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 34
Ayton has been the most effective offensive player for the Suns outside of Booker and his terrific scoring and rebounding form the basis of his effort. After hurling up three 20+ points and 10+ rebounds in a row, Ayton roared up for 14 points and 17 rebounds.
Dennis Schroeder: PPG: 15.4 APG: 5.8 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.7 PFP: 28
Schroeder is an important player for the Lakers and can change their landscape if he plays at a terrific clip. However, he had a terrible shooting night in the loss in Game 4, shooting only 3/13 for 8 points.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 13.4 RPG: 4.2 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 23
Young Mikal would have to shed some nerves while playing in the Playoffs and will need to scamper up on both ends. Bridges had 11 points and 4 rebounds in the win.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: PPG: 9.7 PFP: 16
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.1 RPG: 4.7 PFP: 20
PG: C Payne, A Caruso
