BKN vs TOR Dream11 : Rebuffed Brooklyn Nets strive to lay down an early marker for their aspirations in the upcoming edition of NBA
Ahead of the upcoming edition of the frontier basketball league, one side which was quick to make their agenda clear was Brooklyn Nets. The side enjoyed one of the most thriving set of transfers, roping in Kevin Durant from GSW and Kyrie Irving from Cleveland Cavaliers, getting in two stalwarts of the game who have massively bolstered the outfit ahead of the forthcoming season.
Althouhg Kevin Durant is injured for a long period of time for the side, the addition of Kyrie Irving will be more than enough to herald in a sublime and pristine brand of basketball for the side. He’s a staunch player, someone who has serenaded himself all the laurels owing to the pulsating qualities he possesses as a player, a name who lured Brooklyn Nets into snaring into their setup.
And with Irving set to feature for the side significantly in today’s impeding clash, Brooklyn Nets will be looking to wrap up their preseason fixtures in aplomb and bombard their way to a win against last season’s winners, Toronto Raptors. In what was the most stunning result, the side ended up winning the title in the foregone season but have ever since then seen an exodus of their myriad performers leave them immensely depleted, a deficit which looks too tough to cover up come this season.
Kawhi Leonard was one of the biggest names to leave the side and as the Raptors look to assert their credentials and show they are more than just a team which was able to shine the odd time around, today’s match comes as a momentous occasion for them. A win against Brooklyn Nets albeit in a preseason encounter will see the side reaffirm their authority and show they are capable of putting in a real title bid this time around as well.
Probable Playing 5
- Patrick McCaw and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will be missing from the Raptors’ squad for this impending clash due to their injury concerns.
- Kevin Durant misses this one as well as a good part of the season for Brooklyn Nets with the player out injured for the side.

BKN vs TOR Dream11 Point Guard
With the side having confirmed that new signing Kyrie Irving will be available for them for this match and is set to play a good amount of the encounter as well, the point guard becomes an instant pick for us An excellent pick by the side, the player is not only someone who dictates play from his own court and picks up assists but control the central of the court with his swift ball movement and rotations as well to act as a difference maker in his side’s attacking travails as well.
We are picking Spencer Dinwiddie from the side as well with Irving not expected to get the full mach as he makes a gradual and steady return from injury for his side while from the opposition we have opted for Fred Vavleet.
BKN vs TOR Dream11 Shooting Guard
A major reason for Brooklyn Nets being held in such massive reverence and being regarded as a stupendous side is their ability to send down open treys in rousing fashion. The side made 1,047 three pointers in the bygone season, emerging as the fifth best placed team when it came to shooting down treys, seeing us pick out the daunting duo of Garrett Temple and Joe Harris from the side.
With the Raptors set to reply on their defensive setup to win this match, one which served them so efeciently last season, Brooklyn Nets will need to resort to sending down plenty of triples from the zone, seeing this partnership being given a free lease of hand. The two have a bag of tricks which can cut the opposition’s work short, making them instant picks for us.
BKN vs TOR Dream11 Small Forward
The aforementioned narrative sees us get in Caris LeVert as well from the side, a player who alongside the prior two picks will be asked to rotate outside the line of the circle for his side and find his zone to eye up the basket for three pointers.
BKN vs TOR Dream11 Power Forward
We are picking up Chris Boucher from Toronto Raptors due to two reasons. While he’s someone more than capable of galloping his way into the opposition’s circle and crafting out layups and clinically sending them down the paint as well, it’s his performance in the side’s defence which has won us over. The side had to thank their defence last season for their unprecedented success, snagging 8 steals per match to emerge as champions and will be looking to emulate the same display in this encounter as well.
BKN vs TOR Dream11 Centre
It’s the same reasoning of being a two toned player which sees us close out our side with the pick of centre Serge Ibaka from the Raptors as well. He’s going to play an integral part in both the side’s attacks and defence, a player who’ll find himself make a foray just underneath his paint in a bid to screen Brooklyn Nets and block their attempts at the basket.
Irving is being picked up as our side’s star player for this clash.
