Suns vs Bucks Finals Game 5: Yet again, we have a long series in the Playoffs and yet again a team bouncing back from a 0-2 deficit. The Bucks and the Suns are engaged in a battle for the ages, both teams have not given an inch and have also seen bench players chipping in with heavy production. The Suns have squandered the advantage they gained early in the series and had a chance to close off the Bucks in Game 4 before their fourth-quarter outburst. The Game 5 can also be off the same drama but these topsy-turvy Playoffs have reserved plenty of surprises. Who will prevail in the game, a team with a torrential backcourt in the Suns or a team that is revved up at the Forward position in the Bucks?

Projected Fantasy Points: 62
Antetokounmpo is the ace for his team and has been one of the best players in the League for years now. He has put up an impressive campaign and it is not surprising that he is just two games away from his maiden championship. The Forward is a giant and can score, rebound, distribute, and defend at a quality clip. He dipped in 26 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks in Game 4. This type of production makes him a candidate for Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
Devin has been lighting up the league with his superb offense this season and in the Playoffs, he has not held back. However, he is more than an offensive player and can contribute in the other areas as well. The guard has carried his team to new heights and has established his name in the canons of the Association through his admirable play. He was on fire in Game 4, hoarding 42 points.
CP-3 has been an elite guard for more than a decade now and has waited patiently for his turn on the big stage of the league. He forms one of the most devastating and balanced backcourts with D-Booker and is capable of going on scoring outbursts, while always being the primary playmaker and floor general of the team. Paul had 10 points, 7 assists, and 4 rebounds in Game 4.
Khris is not a mere footnote to Giannis in this squad and has often single-handedly brought them to the heels of victory. The Forward’s versatility is punctuated by his work ethic and he is more than just a scorer. Middleton has been pouncing upon his opponents and sometimes leaves them to dust. He showed similar capabilities in Game 4, acing 40 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Jrue Holiday: PPG: 17.1 APG: 8.3 RPG: 5.7 SPG: 1.5 TPG: 2.4
The PG is responsible for turning around the fortunes for the Bucks and his offense and defense both combine to make him a terrific guard. He has brought his A-game in the Playoffs and in Game 4, he gathered 13 points, 7 assists, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals.
DeAndre Ayton: PPG: 15.8 RPG: 12.2 BPG: 1.0 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 39
Ayton has showcased immense maturity for the Suns, his back-to-basket game, rebounding, and defense have all been at their best during this postseason run. Ayton scampered 6 points, 17 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks in Game 4.
Brook Lopez: PPG: 13.3 RPG: 5.8 BPG: 1.6 PFP: 26
The veteran big man gives the Bucks a decent supply of offense and defense on a consistent basis. He logged 14 points in Game 4.
