Dream 11 Picks
Jamal Murray’s incredible 50-11 double-double the last time around deserved to end up on the winning side. He came up with 7 dimes as well on the day, a complete and well rounded display, one which showed why he’s emerged as the side’s fulcrum in no time at all.
Coming up next to him is Monte Morris. Although he’s been far from at his best in the seeding round, his knowhow of the game is unchallenged, a player more than adept at opening the zone to shoot down triples.
With Jamal in the form of his life, Utah Jazz stood in real fear of losing out on a 3-1 lead the last time around. However, in Donovan Mitchell, the side had the perfect reply to Jamal with the shooting guard pulling off a staggering 51 points and 7 assists on the day to leave the opposition in an embargo.
He’s going to find company in the services of Jordan Clarkson for the day’s upcoming clash. With 24 points in the same scrimmage, he opened the zone for himself with nonchalant ease with his endeavours forcing Denver to deploy a bevy of defenders on him.
He might only come on as a substitute today but Juwan Morgan will still find a place in our side. He managed to make the most of his few minutes the last time around to pull off 4 rebounds for himself with his innate ability to occult shots serving the side fruitfully.
Paul Millsap’s performance in the foregone tie came as a pleasant surprise for Denver Nuggets. After going off the boil for a majority of the seeding round, he settled into his groove finally in game 4 to show what he’s capable of with an imperious 16 points, 4 assists and 7 rebounds.
Denver are going to need Nikola Jokic to be in the form today if the side has any chance of scripting a revival in the series. While his points in the paint are flawless as ever, its his ability to defend and screen his side’s post which makes him such a pivotal name for the club.
Mason Plumlee will slot his way next to him. The tenacious name is capable of resigning attacks into failing in their attempts to shoot with his nous of defensive expertise offering him the chance to pull off deflections, steals and blocks.
With a behemoth 51 points in game 4, Donovan will slot his way into our team as the star player while Jokic is the pro player.
