DEN Vs BKN Dream11, Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: East meets West as either side make an advent into today’s encounter with different agendas.
Placed in different conferences, our opponents of the day have different aspirations as well when they step out onto the court to square off against each other. Where Brooklyn Nets are languishing in the Eastern Conference, Denver Nuggets are thriving in the Eastern Conference, seeing both step out in completely opposing form for this upcoming tie.
With the six defeats from 10 encounters, this has been an inconsistent start to the showpiece league for Brooklyn Nets, one which finds them chasing a spot in the top 8 as things stand. Currently in ninth place, the side come into today’s encounter in the wake of their second straight defeat albeit a closely fought one.
Defeat 119-114 by Utah Jazz the last time around, Brooklyn nets will rue a match which could have easily swung their way had the season been able to show the requisite composure in the dying stages. Elsewhere, although Denver Nuggets sustained a defeat in their foregone tie as well with the side losing 125-121 to Atlanta Hawks to bring an end to four wins in succession, the side’s 7-3 record sees them planted firmly in fourth place in the Western Conference.
What adds to the intrigue of today’s encounter is the way this clash transpired the last time around as Kyrie Irving’s’ scuffle with Murray who he lambasted for taking a shot after time saw Kyrie Irving throw the ball into the stands. It was a match which saw tempers flare as Denver Nuggets thumped Brooklyn Nets and if this clash reciprocates the unravelling from that day, we are set to be in for a ripper of an affair.

DEN vs BKN Dream11 Point Guard
His team’s top scorer with the 29.7 points per encounter and the 7 assists to go with them, Kyrie Irving has been the focal point of the Brooklyn Nets unit for quite some time now. The player was inured recently raising question marks over his involvement for this one but given the staunch identity of the match and the player being listed in the team’s squad for today, we envision him stepping out in the middle for this one.
From the opposition meanwhile we are choosing Jamal Murray with the player coming into the tie with 18.7 points per fixture to not only run play for the side but gallop his way down the court as well to drop points with effervescent ease.
DEN vs BKN Dream11 Shooting Guard

DEN vs BKN Dream11 Small Forward
We have gone in for the one player apiece from either side in this docket of our side with us beginning with the selection of Will Barton from Denver Nuggets. The player has opened up the zone for himself to pull off a slew of treys on a consistent basis and given the lopsided defence of his opponent, we envisage him pull off a nice quantity of points today as well.
Elsewhere from the opposition, we are moving in with Garrett Temple for the tie. Despite Brooklyn Nets being in an agonising position in the Eastern Conference, the side have continued to flourish in attack to record the 120 points per fixture. They also have the third best three point conversion rate at 39%, a gripping narrative which has been executed largely owing to Temple’s electric displays.
DEN vs BKN Dream11 Power Forward
Paul Millsap is selected by us from Denver Nuggets with the player set to be a custodian of his side’s defence today, someone who’ll be asked to screen and block a side who will capitalise on the slightest bits of gaping holes. From the Nets unit meanwhile we have Rodions Kurucs come in for us for the prevelant encounter.
DEN vs BKN Dream11 Centre
Another player who Denver Nuggets will rely on immensely in defence is Nikola Jovic, someone who’ll be asked to thwart the Nets’ attacking sorties and layups. The player has not only fulfilled that role perfectly with the 9 rebounds per match but his 6 assists to go with them have seen him be a pivotal figure in attack as well, someone who has fathomed together attacking plays to perfection.
DEN vs BKN Dream11 Star Player
We have decided to make a foray into today’s clash with Jokic as our side’s star player.
