    UTA vs BKN Dream11: The trade deadline is nearing and there are various teams that will be in the mood to engage in the exchange of players during this period. Well, there are some players who want to change their fit and then there are teams who want to move players for various reasons. After all, in the end, the game is all about finding fits and finding the overall roster balance. And most likely two teams who play here in Brooklyn Nets and Utah Jazz will be engaging in such scenarios.

    Jazz had a horrid January month, the type of month that has taken the steam out of their season. Most of it can be traced to the constant absence of Gobert and Mitchell. The team will be without Gobert here but Mitchell is most likely returning here and his comeback will at least bolster the team’s offense.

    Brooklyn Nets have been in the trouble territories recently and they have lost six games in a row. The team has lost both defensive and offensive balance ever since Kevin Durant has been out. Despite playing the duo of Irving and Harden, the team has been unable to get going. Nets will need a winning streak here for sure.

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Jazz: Will they be active during the trade deadline?
    The Jazz has struggled on the defensive end all season long. Without Gobert, they have struggled even more and not only have they given open inside lanes, but their perimeter defense is also significantly weaker compared to the last season. For a team that doesn’t defend well, offensive lapses are costly and the Jazz had their worst offensive month in January and they have been highly inefficient in recent times. By the way, this is the same Jazz squad that had the best record in the league last season!

    Still, with Mitchell back, they surely will be bolstered at the offensive end. He gives high-quality isolation scoring and with him around, there are also open shooting lanes for others. Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley are both quality scorers too and if Clarkson plays, he can strike some blows too. However, there are speculations that the Jazz can break the current core of Mitchell-Bogdanovic-Clarkson-Gobert-O’Neale and may bring in a two-way wing to sort out the defensive issues. Let us see what happens.

    Nets: Durant is the lifeline
    Without Kevin Durant, the Brooklyn Nets have lost the plot. Not only Kevin has been one of the best scorers this season, but he also provides top-quality rebounding, playmaking, and defense. With him gone, defenses have been able to close in on the rest of the players, and the Nets are hurt on both ends. The team has lost more than 70% of games since Durant has been gone and the current six-game losing streak is also a result of offensive inefficiencies by James Harden.

    To be honest, the trio of Harden, Irving, and Durant hasn’t even played for 10% of the games, and of course, this hyped-up combination hasn’t even built team chemistry. There are rumors that the team can trade Harden and well, to be honest, he can bring in some players like Jerami Grant/Sabonis in exchange but I think this is not the time to cut short the trio without even giving them floor time. Still, the Nets will have to make some moves and get some depth because Durant can be absent for three more weeks!

    UTA vs BKN DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Trent Forrest(UTA) had 18 points, 8 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Forrest may not get enough minutes to make such an impact again. Depends whether Clarkson plays here or not.
    • Rudy Gay(UTA) had 15 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Rudy has been in the 7-11 points range mostly.
    • Patty Mills(BKN) had 14 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds, 3 steals in the last game. The one-guard has been in the 14-18 points range mostly these days.
    • Royce O’Neale(UTA) had 15 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals in the last contest. O’Neale doesn’t usually score around 15, a 6-10 points range is more of his forte.
    • Udoka Azubuike(UTA) had 8 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks in the last contest. Not a norm for him and his production depends on whether Whitside will play here or not.
    • James Johnson(BKN) had 18 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Johnson has scored 12 or more in three of the last five games.
    • Jared Butler(UTA) had 10 points, 3 assists in the last game. Butler has scored 9 or more in four games straight but it seems like his minutes will be slashed here.
    • Kessler Edwards(BKN) had 7 points, 4 rebounds in the last game. The wing has been in the 4-8 points and 4-7 rebounds range this season.
    • Blake Griffin(BKN) had 9 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal in the last game. He has been in the above range quite a bit recently.

    Where to watch NBA Live Score?

    Not really a great news for the Indian NBA fans! The Indian fans cannot catch the game on streaming services Voot and JIO TV, because these services just showcase one game each day which means the rest of the schedule is going to be a miss. So if you want to watch some other games rather than depending on a service to showcase just two teams each day, get hold of all live games through the NBA League and buy the annual subscription plan. To know the scores, stats, and news, go to the official website of the NBA.
