Suns vs Thunder Fantasy NBA: The Phoenix Suns will come into the game after beating the Bulls behind a spectacular 45 points outburst by Devin Booker. On the other, the Oklahoma City Thunder will hit the floor after beating the Raptors in a terrific team effort. More details about PHX vs OKC Dream11 will be given here.
Suns’ season: Suns have been the surprise of the season, but if we observe their roster then their record makes sense. They have a machine gun scorer in Booker, a veteran PG in Paul, a defensive juggernaut in DeAndre Ayton and an emerging talent in Mikal Bridges. They also have a deep bench with talents like Cameron Payne, Cameron Johnson, and Dario Saric. Phoenix is 2nd in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.
Thunder’s season: Oklahoma City is in rebuilding mode so it is not a surprise that they have a losing record. However, they have a centerpiece in Shai, who is accompanied by other talented young players in Dort, Svi, and Robey. For Thunder, this season looks to be all about the development of their young core and their youth movement has pieced together fighting performances throughout the season.

Projected Fantasy Points: 47
D-Book is one of the elitist scorers in the league and he has helped the Suns to produce an impressive record. Booker has benefited from playing with CP-3 which has decreased his load. He is averaging 28.4 PPG for the last 5 games, scoring more than 30 points twice in the window. He is a terrific selection as the Super-Pick in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
CP-3 has transformed Suns into a mature and well-oiled unit. His playmaking, scoring, and defense are even better than the numbers suggest, and his impact can be felt upon the team record this season. CP3 has also helped ease the load on Devin Booker which means that the team’s distribution is more even.
Brown has taken advantage of the opportunities offered to him and is having a memorable stretch for himself for the past few weeks. He has provided both offense and rebounding, while he has shown promise on the defensive end. He is averaging a stunning 14 PPG and 14.6 RPG for the last 5 games.
Ayton is a terrific young player at both ends of the floor and has given his team a lot of ammo. Ayton is having a great season and will be key for the Suns once they make the Playoffs.
Isaiah Roby: PPG: 9.1 RPG: 5.7 TPG: 1.7 PFP: 22
Roby has given his squad decent contributions throughout the season at the Center spot. He is averaging 1.4 SPG and 1.0 BPG for the last 5 games while scoring more than 12 points twice in a row.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 10.2 RPG: 5.0 PFP: 20
The veteran Forward has helped bolster the defense of the Suns and has also chipped in with decent scoring.
Svi Mykhailiuk: PPG: 7.6 RPG: 2.3 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 27
Svi was traded from Pistons around midseason and he has been a welcome addition to the young Thunder. He is averaging 12.2 PPG for the last 5 games.
Dario Saric: PPG: 10.3 RPG: 4.3 TPG: 1.3 PFP: 20
Theo Maledon is averaging 13.2 PPG and 5.8 RPG for the last 5 games. PFP: 27
