PHX vs UTA Dream11 Team Prediction NBA Projections, Fantasy Basketball Picks for Suns vs Jazz 8 April


Suns vs Jazz Fantasy NBA: Phoenix Suns will hit the floor after beating the Rockets behind a 36 points outburst by Devin Booker. Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz will come into the game after losing to the Mavericks despite a 28 points performance by Mike Conley. More information regarding PHX vs UTA Dream11 will be given here.

Suns’ season: Phoenix Suns have made a dramatic turnaround since past seasons and have become an elite unit. The main ingredients of the successful recipe have been Chris Paul, who has brought high IQ leadership, and Devin Booker, who is having another sensational scoring season. If we add Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, and Deandre Ayton in the mix, then we have a squad that can compete on both ends of the floor. They are placed 2nd in the NBA standings for NBA Western Conference.

Jazz’s season: Utah Jazz has clicked on both sides of the floor and has become the toughest team to beat this season. They have a defensive stalwart in Rudy Gobert and an offensive phenomenon in Donovan Mitchell, who is surrounded by a cast of shooters and players who can play decent defense consistently. Clarkson and Ingles have brought a lot of substance off the bench and Jazz is a team built to outlast most teams in the Association and will be a handful to deal with in NBA Playoffs.

Playing with Chris Paul who has decreased his load and development of Bridges and Ayton has insinuated more confidence in him as winning always does. He is averaging a stunning 31.8 PPG for the last 5 games, crossing the 30 points threshold four times. He is an excellent pick-up as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Rudy Gobert
PPG: 14.6
RPG: 13.2
BPG: 2.9

Gobert is having a season of his life, as he has become an elite rebounder, second-best shot blocker in BPG, and a reliable scorer in the paint. Gobert paints a lucrative picture of an ideal center and he is having a historic season. He has notched a double-double 12 out of the last 14 games.
