Description: ORL Vs BKN Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Net’s stun everyone with their resurgence to seal a spot in the playoffs
Ahead of the NBA bubble, hardly anyone had expected colossal things from Brooklyn Nets. The Eastern Conference side were envisioned to be mere fillers in the seeding round, a depleted side going by the motions ahead of the playoffs.
However, the Nets have not only shown everyone how deep their roster is but have silenced their naysayers in style. With four wins from six games including a run of two wins on the bounce, the club finds itself with a 4-2 record inside the bubble to emerge as one of the most spectacular sides since the return of the marquee league.
And the side has been hailed and lauded for its displays more so owing to the resillinace and girt on show by the team. Despite being branded by a string of injuries to main names, the side has not been deterred in the slightest with the side navigating its way past rough waters to make for the juggernaut they are today.
ORL Vs BKN Dream11 Probable Winner
Where the Nets have surpassed all expectations accorded from them, Orlando Magic have been on one of their worst runs in the league this season. Winless in their last four games, the side has been rendered redundant with the team offering absolutely nothing in the way of a fight.
Its this demise and lacklustre brand of basketball which sees them without a standing today either. Although the Nets will be devoid of the services of five players today, we don’t see Orlando taking advantage of that dilemma to see the side emerge out of this with another defeat.

Dream 11 Picks
At a time when absolutely their entire starting 5 is unavailable for the impending scrimmage, the Nets’ will rely on Tyler Johnson to hill compensate for that plight. The point guard has amassed 18.9 ppg for his side in the league with his triples from the deep serving the side well inside the bubble.
Chris Chiozza has made the most of his elevated minutes inside the bubble. He’s ensured that the brunt of injuries hasn’t skewed his side’s march with the player registering a solid 19.6 ppg, 9.4 apg and 7 rpg in the bygone six games for the side.
If Orlando Magic are to snap out of the quagmire they find themselves in at the moment, the team will need to entail the full services of the partnership we have inducted in our side from the team. 14 ppg and 6 apg for D.J. Augustin make him an ever present threat, someone capable of not only shooting from the corners but also setting up dimes for his counterparts.
8 points and 6 assists for Markelle Fultz saw him once again show what he’s capable of when in fluent touch to make him our second pick from the club.
A major reason for the Nets managing to string together reasonable and meaningful attacking display at a time when the team is reeling under injuries is due to Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. He’s accrued 15.6 ppg for the club since the return, a figure which has seen him light the court for the side with his high conversion rate from the deep.
Up infront of a side fraught with injuries, James Ennis might end up providing the solution to his side’s problems today. He has the 14 ppg and 7.4 rpb this season, numbers which have seen him stamp his authority in both the dockets of his side’s play.
Few people have been able to curb the threat of Rodions Kurucs. The bubble has been a chance for the Nets player to push for a spot in the side’s shooting arounds and he’s made the most of the opportunity with his 13 ppg and 7 rpb see him become an ominous threat.
At a time when nothing has worded in Orlando Magic’s favour inside the bubble, Nikola Vukcevic has been able to provide some kind of solace to his side’s raucous supporters. The centre has gone about his task without any qualms to quench a behemoth 25.4 pp and 14 rpg and emerge as the focal point of whatever triumphs his team has revelled in this term.
With him being the focal point of his side’s gameplan, Nikola will ease his way into our side as the star player while Fultz is the pro player.
