PHX vs UTA Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Phoenix Suns vs Utah Jazz

Share

PHX vs UTA Dream11: In this game, the Phoenix Suns will meet the Utah Jazz. Both have been high-octane Western Conference for the past two seasons. The Suns have been maintaining the best record in the league while Jazz is going through their toughest period of the season, struggling to notch up wins.

The Suns have been showcasing their depth night in and out, and they have done a wonderful job of staying afloat despite missing DeAndre Ayton, and are on a six-game winning streak on a regular basis. On the other hand, the Jazz is playing without Donovan Mitchell in this game and Rudy Gobert along with Bojan Bogdanovic is questionable for the game. Sure, both teams have shorthanded but the Suns still have a significant advantage due to their depth.

Host: Phoenix Suns
Visitors: Utah Jazz

Match Timing: 25 January, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: FootPrint Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Match-ups
Suns have a formidable guard duo of Devin Booker and Chris Paul. While Paul can put on assists galore, Booker can hit some big-time shots. Bridges act as the slashing wing and is a dynamic two-way presence while Biyombo and McGee are athletic Centers who have been great back-ups throughout the season. Cameron Johnson is recovering from an injury but it is a matter of time before he gets his rhythm back.

Conley, Ingles, and Clarkson are all quality guards for the Jazz. If Rudy Gobert doesn’t play, the team will be in huge trouble considering they can’t match up to the physicality of Biyombo and McGee. On the other hand, Bogdanovic is questionable for the game, a much-needed presence due to the absence of Mitchell. Gay has been a decent backup while Royce O’Neale despite his high-profile defense will need to step up his offense after going scoreless in the last game.

Devin had a tough shooting night versus the Pacers going for 5/23 shooting output but hey, he was on fire in the prior games. Booker has been scoring in 25-35 points, grabbing 4-7 rebounds and dishing 4-6 assists a game regularly.. Booker can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.

Rudy Gobert(UTA)
Points: 12
Rebounds: 18
Assists: 03

Chris Paul(PHX)
Points: 18

To be honest, Paul has made a case for the MVP award and with his ability to dish assists and score on a regular basis, he has been a huge factor. The assists wizards has been figuring in the 12-20 points range and dishes 10+ assists a game on a regular basis.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-47

Bojan Bogdanovic(UTA)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 08

Bojan has been shooting at a high-clip once again this season. He can score 21 or more with Mitchell out here. However, he is questionable for the game and sustained an injury versus the Warriors.

Mike Conley(UTA)
Points: 09
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 02

Mike has been a great presence at the perimeter for the Grizzlies and he will be needed by the team to score big with Mitchell out. I believe he will figure in the 12-20 points range while dishing 4-6 assists.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-36

Mikal Bridges(PHX)
Points: 23
Rebounds: 06

PHX vs UTA DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Jordan Clarkson(UTA) had 9 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists in the last game. Jordan can go for 16-22 points range on a regular basis but yes, he has had shooting troubles lately.
  • Joe Ingles(UTA) had 10 points, 5 assists, 2 rebounds in the last game. I believe Ingles will hover in this range again.
  • JaVale McGee(PHX) had 13 points, 12 rebounds, 3 blocks in the last game. The Center usually scores in the 6-8 range but can expand it will grabbing 7 or more rebounds regularly

  • Cameron Johnson(PHX) had 8 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Johnson will perhaps start in this game and I expect a 10-16 points range from him.
  • Royce O’ Neale(UTA) had 5 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. He was scoreless in the last game but yes, they need him to dip in at least 6 points.
