*Stats from Regular Season*
Projected Fantasy Points: 46
LBJ has been the best player in the league for years and was the NBA Finals MVP last season, but this season was different as he was hit by injuries, which saw his team fall to a lower spot. The Forward lodged 18 points, 10 assists, and 7 rebounds against the Suns. He can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario
Davis has all the skills a Power Forward has to offer and is an offensive juggernaut. Anthony struggled in the first game as he was shut down. Davis managed 13 points and 7 rebounds while shooting only 31% from the Field, which means the Suns’ defense was successful.
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. If he keeps scoring in the 30 points territory then Suns will have a terrific chance of winning the series. We saw the example during Game 1, where he lodged 34 points, and also collected 8 assists and 7 rebounds.
CP-3 is one of the main figures in the Suns’ team, and he supplements their offense and playmaking at the guard spot. He only scored 7 points, 8 assists, and 4 rebounds in the win against the 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. He showed these skills in Game 1, collecting 21 points and 16 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 shows in Game 2. He managed 14 points and 3 assists in the loss.
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 10 points and 4 assists in the win.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: PPG: 9.7 PFP: 16
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.1 RPG: 4.7 PFP: 20
PG: A Caruso
SG: K Caldwell-Pope, D Booker(PP), C Johnson
SF: L James(SP), M Bridges
PF: J Crowder
C: D Ayton
