PHX vs. LAL Dream 11 Team Prediction: King James and Anthony Davis are looking imperious as always and will march ahead in the regular season to conquer the basketball world yet again. There is not a shred of doubt that the duo of LeBron and Anthony is the most imposing and strikes fear in the hearts of the opponents, there is nowhere to run when King James sets the rhythm of the game, and when Davis establishes his position on both sides of the floor. On the other hand, Devin Booker is a nightmare to guard and can be a machine gun scorer with no mercy, now that he is paired up with Chris Paul, he will become even more formidable. In their last matchup, the Lakers stood tall against the Suns, and Talen Horton-Tucker continued to surprise the league, watch out for the Lakers as they seemed to have upgraded their roster. The Suns will also look to figure out combinations and hope that they overcome their playoff drought. This game will be played on the newly inaugurated home floor of the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers, Key Players:
LeBron James– You can close your eyes and pick the perennial MVP player, King James. Anyone who follows the NBA knows the value of having LeBron James as a Super Power Player. He can dominate every facet of the game and is the most intimidating presence on the court, no matter what form of basketball game one is playing. LeBron is the most precious player in the Dream 11 Fantasy basketball match-up. However, fantasy lovers should also note that since it is preseason, LeBron only played for 14 minutes during his return to the court, where he finished with 11 points.
Anthony Davis: The ever-intimidating Ant Davis is always up in big numbers. However, his regulated time frame of 17 minutes meant that he could only contribute 10 points, distinctions that will shift once the real deal in the Regular Season begins.
Kyle Kuzma: Kyle Kuzma has crossed the 20-point threshold multiple times now and he should be considered as a Power Player in this scenario as he is seeing more minutes compared to Ant-Davis and King James. This will of course change during the Regular Season, but even then he will remain a hot pick.
Devin Booker: Devin Booker will always score consistently, whatever game you are playing. In addition to his 16 points, he also handed out 7 assists and grabbed 4 rebounds during his last outing against the Lakers. Watch out for Booker to boost your fantasy points. He is also a potential pick for the Super Player position.
DeAndre Ayton: Ayton is a presence on both sides of the court, and he can look to become an Anthony Davis type of player. He was impressive in his last outing as he contributed 4 steals along with his 21 points and 9 rebounds. The budding big man is a dream for fantasy enthusiasts with performances like that
Montrezl Harrell: Harrell always brings energy to the game as was evident with his 11 points and 6 rebounds performance. Along with this, he also lodged 2 steals a 1 block during the last outing, shining across the boards.
Talen Horton-Tucker: The young guard is seeing a lot of minutes and is making most of the opportunity, he scored 18 points, grabbed 5 boards, and also managed 1 steal and block to register himself in the league.
Phoenix Suns vs Lakers Match Prediction
Preseason results must be taken with a grain of salt because they are about figuring out the roster, loosening up the players, and decide the way forward. The focus is more on giving different looks on the court rather than winning. Of course, the presence of LeBron and Davis along with a high performing supporting cast makes the Lakers favorite practically against anyone, a lot will depend upon how the Lakers coach Frank Vogel and Suns coach Monty Williams approach this game and how many minutes the likes of James and Booker are allocated.
