Suns vs Lakers NBA Live: Phoenix Suns finished 2nd in the NBA Standings for Western Conference while the Los Angeles Lakers secured the right to play against them by beating the Warriors in the Play-in tournament. The Suns have a lot of youth, energy, and talent, plus they are a strong defensive team too. The Lakers have their marquee players in LeBron and Davis back from injury and it will not be a surprise if we see a hotly contested series. More details about PHX vs LAL Dream11 will be given here.
PHX vs LAL NBA Playoffs: Suns ranked a stellar 7th in PPG as a team during the regular season, accumulating 115.1 PPG, but they will face the second-best defense in Lakers who allow only 106.8 PPG and lock in on most opponents. Both the teams can deploy major weapons at multiple positions but in this regard, the Lakers have an edge of experience. However, the backcourt of Chris Paul and Devin Booker will be tough to deal with and KCP along with Schroeder would have to play superb defense. For the Suns, Crowder, Bridges, and Ayton will need to contain LeBron and Davis.

*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 46
LBJ needs no introduction and the King has been the best player for the last decade or so and continues to sizzle. However, a serious injury means that his production can be affected a little, but his presence alone on the floor gives the Lakers a great chance to play against a pesky Suns team. The Forward lodged 13 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists against the Warriors. He can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario
Davis will have to most likely battle Deandre Ayton to generate offense but he can trump the matchup considering his skill-set. He will be needed to seal off the paint and perimeter at the defensive end and his abilities will be handy for the Lakers to cope up against a difficult Phoenix Suns team. Davis managed 25 points and 12 rebounds in the triumph over the Warriors.
Booker has been a marquee offensive player for many years now and after having a successful season with his team, he will have his eyes locked on to making a deep Playoffs run. The guard will like to score around 30 points and increase the Suns’ chances.
CP-3 has allowed Booker to relax a little while dictating the terms as a Floor General. He has been in impeccable form, being big-time in the clutch and controlling the tempo. The veteran guard will be needed a lot by the Suns to counter the heavily loaded Lakers.
Deandre Ayton: PPG: 14.4 RPG: 10.5 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 34
Ayton called himself a “throwback big man” recently and it is an apt description since he can score inside, rebound at a high clip, and defend the paint.
Dennis Schroeder: PPG: 15.4 APG: 5.8 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.7 PFP: 28
Dennis has both the offensive and defensive skills to be a more than handy complementary player on the loaded Lakers team, and he has unleashed his abilities in the most effective manner. He had 12 points and 5 assists in the win against the Warriors.
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.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: PPG: 9.7 PFP: 16
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.1 RPG: 4.7 PFP: 20
PG: C Paul(PP)
SG: K Caldwell-Pope, T Horton-Tucker
SF: T Craig, M Bridges
PF: J Crowder, A Davis(SP)
C: D Ayton
