Dream 11 Picks
Ja Morant has been the only reason Memphis Grizzlies have managed to stay inside the top 8 of the Western Conference for so long. In what has been a pathbreaking season for the player, he’s managed to take control of his side’s attacking docket, a narrative well decimated in the 22-11 double-double he peddled out the last time around.
Dillon Brooks had the 15 points in the same skirmish to see him link up with Morant with the two capable of making life an adversity for an Utah Jazz side on the decline. Utah on the other hand see their top scorer with the 26.3 ppg, Donovan Mitchell become a must have pick for us given the manner in which he’s converged to cajole his way the double-doubles.
Kyle Anderson needed time to get going for Memphis but the player finally managed to show what he’s capable of in the foregone encounter to see us make the 8 ppg and 6.8 rpg small forward our pick for the imminent outing.
Utah Jazz might have failed to register points off late but there’s been no faulting the side’s defence. And ensuring the team has managed to hold onto its bastion and remain such a stern defensive setup is due to Royce O’Neal who lunged onto 13 rebounds for his side the last time around to win the battle of the boards against the Lakers.
Georges Niang utilised his ability to rope in the points in the paint to accrue him crucial points in the same contest to see him link up with Royce.
There’s a reason why Rudy Gobert has been touted by many as the Defensive Player of the Year. He took on the Lakers the last time around but still to pull off 13 rebounds with his innate skill set to hammer down the steals and blocks taking his side to within grasps of a win.
Tony Bradley joins him with the substitute pushing hard for a place in the side’s starting rotations after coming up with 5 points and 5 rebounds on the day.
With 3 points against the Lakers, it was only rightful to make Donavan our captain while Morant is the pro player.
