UTA vs PHX Dream11 Prediction, NBA Preseason: Expectations will be high from the Phoenix Suns this season despite them falling short of the playoff last season. They made the biggest noise in the NBA bubble, winning 8 times, the longest such run by a team missing out on the playoffs, which was as impressive as unexpected, but not out of blues entirely. In Devin Booker, the team has the player who can take on the world, and challenge for the MVP throne. He is improving in every game, as it seems. And a fit-again DeAndre Ayton is the sort of the player every team dreams of. He can be lethal on both ends and complements Booker better.
But the addition of Chris Paul to the roster has, to some degree, made the team even more dangerous. Paul is super clutch and will be a guiding figure for the young but supremely talented roster at Suns.
UTA vs PHX Dream 11 Prediction: Utah Jazz will be playing hosts in the second scrimmage against Phoenix Suns at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Tuesday morning (IST).
Utah Jazz, on the other hand, knows that the expectations are always high from them. They came up short in the 2019-20 post-season, but a couple of good additions to the roster should make the team even more dangerous.

Match Timing: 15 December, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: Vivint Smart Home Arena
Donovan Mitchell: Led the offensive charts for the Utah Jazz last season. His numbers are improving after every campaign, and he is yet to hit his peak, which shows the sky is the limit for Mitchell. But for this match, it all depends on how many minutes he gets in this Dream11 Basketball fantasy basketball match.
Devin Booker: Talking about being young and making the ceiling even higher, not many players are doing it better than Booker. He has been a sensation, as plain as simple. Booker scored 16 points and dished out 6 assists in the first pre-season game.
DeAndre Ayton: Suns’ big-man will be a key player for the team. His defence is what makes him super-elite and add his offensive game, and he can be relentless. He had 11 points and 14 rebounds in 1st pre-season game.
Rudy Gobert: The big Frenchman can also be a superb two-way player, but his game revolves more on the defensive side. He guarantees points.
UTA vs PHX Dream11 Team: Head To Head
Both teams play in the same conference and that’s the reason why they run into each other more frequently. Since 1974-75 season, both teams contested 186 games and, you might be surprised, that both teams are locked at 93 wins each. Of course, the pre-season scrimmages or the glorified friendly fixtures are being discounted from the conversation.
But if you follow NBA, you know that this head-to-head record is slightly slippery, flattering to deceive. For the Suns have been average for some time now, while the Jazz have been a regular fixture in the post-season.
That’s why it’s better to gauge the most recent matchups, and in that, the Jazz are almost untouchable winning 15 of the last 17 games against the Suns. A better reflection.

Utah Jazz used 15 players in the first scrimmage, with Phoenix Suns giving minutes to 13 players. Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, two of the best players for the Jazz, played for 17 minutes only, with second-unit players such as Miye Oni, Georges Niang and Juwan Morgan getting more than 20 minutes. It’s a good reminder that the matches in the preseason are all about testing the true strength of the team and giving fringe players some experience of the top level. Not much shouldn’t be looked into the results in the pre-season, but the home-court advantage here gives Jazz an upper hand.
