Utah Jazz vs Charlotte Hornets Fantasy NBA: The Utah Jazz will enter the game after losing to the Los Angeles Clippers by 4 points despite a heroic 35 points performance by their star guard Donovan Mitchell. On the other hand, the Charlotte Hornets will hit the floor after winning a close 2-point encounter versus the Golden State Warriors, carried by a 36 points effort by Terry Rozier. More information about UTA vs CHA Dream11 fixture will be given here.
Jazz’s season: The Jazz are the best team in the league record-wise but it comes as no surprise because they have one of the most potent defensive squads in the League and their offensive makeup is similarly impressive. What made their win-streak(before the Clippers’ loss) more impressive is that they did it without their PG Mike Conley, who gives them both offensive and defensive depth, which means that they have a lot of depth.
Hornets’ season: While Terry Rozier has been tearing it apart, the Hornets roster lacks experience, not talent, they have a rising star in LaMelo Ball, an extremely athletic Miles Bridges, and a smart player in PJ Washington. For the Hornets, Gordon Hayward has been in and out due to injuries which have also affected cohesion. The Hornets still are in the early Playoffs race and can sneak a spot.

Utah Jazz vs Charlotte Hornets NBA Fantasy Analysis: While LaMelo Ball has sparked a new enthusiasm in the Hornets, their ace Gordon Hayward has also carried them by scoring at a top-notch level, in tandem with Terry Rozier.

Mitchell has proven that his offense can translate into wins and thus his team can aim high.

Donovan is a contender as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Gobert is the most potent defensive center in the league right now and if you add elite rebounding and the ability to catch tough passes and finish, Gobert makes your dream Center.

Jordan Clarkson: The back-up PG is averaging 18.2 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 1.0 SPG. Clarkson is hot sauce off the bench who can lump up points in hurry.
