PHI Vs MEM Dream11 Picks
For Alec Burks, today’s clash is going to be a chance for the point guard to impress and show why he’s deserving of a spot in the Philadelphia 76ers’ starting rotations. The player will be accorded solid minutes as his side shuffle with their team constantly, a narrative which makes the 10.7 ppg man a must have pick from the side.
Elsewhere, the 7 ppg and 4 apg see us indulge in the services of Tyus Jones from Memphis Grizzlies, a player whose ball handling abilities have seen him control the centre of the court for the side.
Any chance Memphis have of salvaging an unlikely win for the day’s encounter is going to lie squarely on the services of Dillon Brooks. The shooting guard has registered 16 ppg this season, numbers which allude towards his radiant ability to line up triples from the midrange region.
Philadelphia will meanwhile see us indulge in the pick of Furkan Korkmaz owing to his 9.7 ppg.
Philadelphia’s centrestage in attack with a staggering 19.4 ppg, Tobias Harris has taken over control of the scoring docket for his side. The club managed to make their presence felt in this round owing to his ravishing performances, ones which saw him nonchalantly coax his way a string of triples from the deep.
Josh Jackson is our pick from Memphis with the player capable of spurring his side’s attacking gameplan and clobbering the opposition with his panache, one which has seen him register 10.4 ppg.
Ben Simmons has been at the mainstay of both his side’s attacking and defending ambit. While his 17.6 ppg and 8.2 apg were enough to indulge in his services, the 7.8 rpg he has really emoted us towards his quirky skillset with the player coming up with turnovers at crucial junctures to layup the ball for his counterparts.
Not only his side’s top scorer with the 23 ppg but having registered the most rebounds as well at 12, the electric Joel Embiid makes for a befitting name to close out our set of picks for the incoming scrimmage.
His 23 ppg made it prudent to captain Joel while Simmons is our vice-captain.
