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

Share

UTA vs PHX Dream11: The NBA keeps taking steps toward the postseason but still a long Regular Season remains. Anyway, some pictures regarding multiple teams will transform as we head into the All-Star break. But before the All-Star Break, we have the trade deadline and there is a high possibility that we see a lot of moves being made in the next two weeks. Anywhere, in this game between the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns in a classic Western Conference tussle.

The Jazz are having a tough month and the bad news is that Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert are out for the game. The team has their worst month by far and well, after relatively being healthier till December, their campaign has taken a lot, and for a team that had a 73% win record but lately, they have fallen behind.

The Suns are simply the best team in the league right now. There is no other way of saying this, well, they are the only team who have not lost ten games so far, and well, they are making a lot of noise. The Suns reached the Finals last season and well now you know why!

Host: Utah Jazz
Visitors: Phoenix Suns

Match Timing: 27 January, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Vivint Smart Home Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Jazz vs Suns: Part II
The Suns were tested by Jazz in the last game in what looked like a heavily outmatched Jazz roster. In the last game, Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Rudy Gobert were not playing but the Clarkson-led offensive flurry made sure that the Jazz stayed in the game and the team actually took a lead before the last quarter.

The Jazz with a second-string side really exceeded the expectations against the team with the best record in the league. Now, with Bogdanovic and Conley potentially returning and the Jazz coming back to the home floor, will the Suns get taken down here?

I don’t think the Suns will be taken down here because I believe they are going to exploit the lack of Gobert in the lineup and I see Devin Booker having another big night. Now, let us come to the other aspect, the Suns are themselves without their key Center Deandre Ayton and Forward Jae Crowder here. But overall, I think the Suns will get their offense rolling from the word go. The Jazz has a better chance of beating the Suns with Bojan Bogdanovic in the fray. Let us see!

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Devin Booker(PHX)
Points: 33
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 03
Steals: 02

Blocks: 02
Booker has been on fire offensively this month and has been dipping in points at a high clip recently. The guard has scored 28 points or more recently in most games. Devin can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-59

Bojan Bogdanovic(UTA) missed the last game and will most likely play in this game. When Mithcell is out, the high-scoring wing figures in the 23+ points range usually while grabbing 4+ rebounds.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 31-41

Chris Paul(PHX)
Points: 27
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 14
Steals: 01

CP-3 is one of the best players in the league and he is my pick for the MVP so far this season for reasons that can’t be captured by stats alone. Paul has been dishing 10-15 points and scoring 15+ or so regularly as well.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-47

Mike Conley(UTA) missed the last game but will most likely participate in this contest. I expect a 15-20 points night along with 5-7 assists here.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-34

Jordan Clarkson(UTA)
Points: 22
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 05
Steals: 02
Clarkson is surely going to get the ball more in his hands with Mitchell out. The Guard can be a bit more efficient and a 19-25 points range is to be expected from the reigning Sixth-Player of the Year.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-36

Mikal Bridges(PHX)
Points: 04
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 05
Steals: 02
Mikal is a two-way wing who helps the Suns on the defensive end quite a bit. Bridges has usually scored in the 10-15 points range but can get 20+ or so in every sixth game or so.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-32

UTA vs PHX DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Rudy Gay(UTA) had 13 points, 5 rebounds in the last game. Gay has been usually scoring in the 7-11 points range but he has scored 13 or more in two games straight.
  • Hassan Whiteside(UTA) had 10 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. I expect Hassan to be in the 10-16 points and 8-12 rebounds range.
  • Bismack Biyombo(PHX) had 16 points, 13 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. McGee will not play in this game and you can expect such production again with Gobert out especially.
  • Rudy Gay(UTA) had 16 points, 5 rebounds in the last contest. Rudy has usually figured in the 7-9 points range this season.
  • Eric Paschall(UTA) had 14 points, 4 rebounds in the last contest. I expect him to be in a similar range especially with Gobert out.
  • Cameron Johnson(PHX) had 20 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals in the last game. The wing has done a great job both as a reserve and starter. I expect 16-19 points here and 4-7 rebounds.
  • Danuel House Jr.(UTA) had 14 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks in the last game. I doubt that Danuel will get many minutes with Bogdanovic out.
  • Trent Forrest(UTA) had 17 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Will the guard get enough minutes to even compile 8-10 points?
  • Jared Butler(UTA) had 13 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 4 steals in the last game. He has scored 13 or more in two games straight, I think he will be in the 7-11 range here.

UTA vs PHX Dream11 Team

PG: C Paul(SP), J Clarkson
SG: D Booker(PP), M Conley
SF: B Bogdanovic
PF: R Gay
C:    H Whiteside, B Biyombo
