Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks Dream11 Prediction : Dream11 Fantasy Tips for BKN vs MIL as The SportsRush helps you form the best possible Dream11 Team.
Sunday will witness a repeat of the great game that we witnessed less than a week ago as top seed (in East and overall in the league) Milwaukee Bucks take on a Brooklyn Nets team thats in a 4 team scramble for the last 3 playoff spots in the East.
Bucks hold a 59-20 record for the season and a win will give them their first 60 win season since Kareem Abdul Jabbar last played for their team. And a bigger incentive is that they will be the only team this season call across NBA to get to 60 wins if they get there in their next 3 games. No other team this season can reach 60 wins, not even the Golden State Warriors. That is not to say Bucks are the front runners for the Championship but they have been the best team in the league through the regular season.
Nets and Bucks Forms –
Milwaukee comes to the game on the back of 2 consecutive wins and going 9-3 in their last 12 games. Their last game was against the Philadelphia 76ers that could possibly be an Eastern Conference Finals match up and the team rallied behind MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo who dropped 45 points on the Sixers, against whom he had scored 52 points the last time the teams had met.
For Nets who have dropped 4 of their last 5, it has been a reality check. The team has done quite well against opponents ranked lower than them and in that sense they have over achieved, but their last 5 games have come against Portland, Philly, Boston, Milwaukee and Toronto, which resulted in 4 losses and 1 win against the dysfunctional Boston Celtics team.
The Nets need a win, not just to prove that they aren’t going to the playoffs just to fill the numbers, but with Miami just a game behind them in 9th place, they need to win to ensure they can make the playoffs in the first place. For the Bucks and Giannis, every win matters as they build momentum for the playoffs, with an inexperienced core when it comes to playoffs and Giannis will want to keep up the dominance as this might be the closest MVP race we have had in a very long time and might produce the best ever runner up to the trophy.
Brooklyn Nets vs Milwaukee Bucks Dream11 Prediction
Point Guards: D’Angelo Russell (18 Cr), Eric Bledsoe (15 Cr), Tim Frazier (5 Cr)
D’Lo is Nets best player and those become automatic picks. He scores in high volume averaging 21 points per game this season to go with nearly 7 assists per game and made his first all-star team appearance this season. He is a volume 3 point shooter shooting north of 36% from deep range and can go off for a bunch of points if he heats up from the deep.
Eric Bledsoe roasted the Nets in their last match up and it helps that he gets matched up against Russell who doesn’t have the foot speed to stay with Bledsoe when he gets any room to blast his way to the basket. In their recent match up, Bledsoe had the following stats: 29 points, 7 Assists and 5 Rebounds. He will also be fresh and raring to go after getting ejected from his last game after a fracas with Embiid.
Tim Frazier provides good value at his price point. He has had 2 good games in the last 3 games with 20 points, 15 assists and 7 rebounds against Atlanta Hawks and 7 points, 7 assists 3 rebounds against the Nets when they met earlier in the week. Taking Frazier allows us to get both Bledsoe and Russell and the points he gives will be valuable bonus to just that.
Shooting Guards: Joe Harris (11 Cr), Sterling Brown (5.5 Cr)
Sterling Brown is as good a value pick as there is in this game. Since his return from injury he has been on fire especially in the last 4 games. His averages in that time is this: 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists. For 5 credits, it cant get any better.
Joe Harris is a sharp shooter of the highest order. Not only did he beat Steph Curry in the 3 point contest, he did it without coming out as a fluke. He is shooting the 3 ball at 47.2% clip and has a FG% of 50.2%. Shooting numbers do not get any better. He averages close to 14 points, 4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
#MILvPHI Final Bucks 128 76ers 122. Bucks will be the TOP SEED for the entire playoffs with an NBA BEST record of 59-10 with 3 to play! Giannis 45 points Hills 20 with BIG shots in the 4th. Home vs Brooklyn Nets 4pm Saturday. IT’S IN THE BANK! AGAIN!

Small Forwards: Demarre Carroll (10 Cr)
In the last match-up Carroll scored 20 points to go with 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Bucks are weakest in defense at the SF position and Carroll and LeVert can both exploit that, but Carroll comes 3.5 Cr cheaper so he gets this pick.
Power Forward: Giannis Antetokounmpo (26 Cr)
Giannis will be the MVP this season over James Harden who is scoring over 35 points per game at efficient rate. If that doesn’t tell you about Giannis’ season I don’t know what will. Giannis is looking to get that MVP award and the road is through the Nets so expect him to keep his numbers up. Just a reminder, his numbers are: 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, 6 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.5 blocks. Sheesh.
Center: Ed Devis (9.5 Cr)
Davis is second choice behind Jarett Allen and that’s logical, but Allen is very expensive and Brook Lopez’s form has taken a bit of a dip in the recent times. So Davis offers the best route to a few points from the Center spot with his rebounding. Oh, last time the two teams met, Davis had 14 rebounds, bullying Illyasova and Lopez on the glass on both ends. So there’s that.
