Philadelphia 76ers vs Brooklyn Nets Thunder Dream11 Prediction: Dream 11 Fantasy Tips for BKN vs PHI in Game 4 of Playoff as The SportsRush helps you form the best possible Dream 11 Team
Philly and Brooklyn series is reaching a boiling point. Nets dominated the game 1 and stole a game away from home. Since then the Sixers have won back to back games. In the midst of that there has been missing Embiid, a hot game for Tobias Harris, some great performances by Ben Simmons and a weird beef between the oddest couple of Ben Simmons and Jared Dudley. Lol what?
Game 4 will be a home game for the Brooklyn Nets and they need to bounce back in this to prove the first game wasn’t a fluke. They wanted to be more than a feel good story in the playoffs and losing this game and going down 3-1 in the series will be the death toll for the Nets and it will be series over.
Injury News: Joel Embiid has been ruled to be doubtful for the game and unless things change fast he will be out for the game. Other notable absence is that of Allen Crabbe who has been out for months now and is ruled out for the season. Ed Davis also remains day to day for the Nets.
BKN vs PHI Dream11 Prediction:
Point Guards: D’Angelo Russell & Ben Simmons
Ben Simmons has scored 61 and 51 over the last two dream 11 contests. That is an average of 56 points at 18 Cr price which equals to almost 3.11 points per credit, which is among the highest values seen across all the playoff series’ He is a must have.
D’Lo isn’t up to the Simmons level but also isn’t as reliant on his passing and rebounding as he is a smooth scorer from distance and mid range. He also has a tendency to heat up and once he gets there he scores in bunches. While his average for the series is 1.67 points per credit this season, he is generally a better point scorer than that. His problem is, that he is priced too high, but also there is no great value in distributing his credits among more players as most don’t seem to have great combined value in the players left off the team.

Shooting Guard: Theo Pinson
Shooting Guards on either team haven’t done great by any stretch of imagination. Joe Harris and JJ Redick are in their teams for one purpose and one purpose only, that is to hit those 3 balls. They do not do anything else and they have been average with this 3 point scoring. Joe Harris has averaged less than 8 points this series on D11, that is less than 1 point per credit. Get that trash out of here. Redick has had better game 2 and game 3, but his total score is still at 50 points in 3 D11 clashes. At 10.5 Cr, that is 1.5 points per credit and wasting 10.5 Cr for that return is not a good plan. So SG spot goes to Pinson who doesn’t play often, but he did play in Game 2 and scored 18 points. So that is his average. If he plays.
Small Forwards: Caris LeVert & Jimmy Butler
LeVert is the best scorer on the Nets on half the days. Russell and him share the top scorer title on a game to game basis. They tied with 26 points in game 3 and LeVert also pulled down 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Plus LeVert is priced at 3.5 Cr lower than Russell. So he ends up with a similar average as Russell on most nights at a cheaper price. So pencil him in.
Jimmy Butler has been the most consistent player for the 76ers through the 3 games. He used game 1 to score at will when 76ers couldn’t get going and was the sole reason the game wasn’t a blow out. In the following two games the Sixers have got going and Butler has averaged 7 assists in those two games preferring to find his team mates if he wasn’t scoring. So he stays involved and whether it is through scoring or through his assists, Butler gets his points on D11.
Power Forwards: Tobias Harris & Ronda Hollis Jefferson
Tobias Harris showed why the 76ers traded the farm for him. He is a capable scorer from all three levels as long as he stays hot. But playing power forward means he is in the right position often to rebound very well, especially with Embiid out of action. 32 rebounds 11 assists and 52 points, that is his stat line from 3 games. That is an average of 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 17 point per game. That is a solid stat line and he isn’t exorbitantly priced either at 15 Cr, that is lower than Jimmy Butlers.
RHJ is a solid pick up at 9 Cr. He missed game 1 but has since averaged 22.5 D11 points per game which gives him a very solid 2.5 points per credit.
Center: Greg Monroe
Monroe got the starting gig in place of Embiid in game 3 and is priced at ridiculously low price of 5 credits. To add to that Monroe did a great job with 9 points, 13 rebounds and 1 assist for a handy 32 points. At 5 Credits that is 6 points per credit! His price hasnt gone up and best part is, this is what Monroe does. These numbers aren’t outside of his regular wheelhouse. So no reason why he shouldn’t provide numbers very similar to these.
Star Player Pick:
- Ben Simmons
- Tobias Harris
- D’Angelo Russell
