BKN vs HOU Dream 11: Who will come out on top in the battle of the high-scorers?

The Brooklyn Nets made two huge NBA off-season trades by landing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Durant helped the Golden State Warriors to several titles but is out for most of this season with an injury.

Irving has started his career in Brooklyn well, but the Nets are 1-3 and recently lost to the Pacers.

The Rockets also brought in Russell Westbrook to help James Harden, and sit 3-1 after four games.

However, they haven’t been impressive defensively and just edged out the Washington Wizards 159-158 in their previous game.

Westbrook and Harden were in good shooting form in the last game, but the Rockets can’t stop the opposition from scoring.

Dream 11 Fantasy tips and predictions

Even without Durant, the Nets could be in playoff contention thanks to Irving’s performances.

The former Boston Celtics star should do more for his new team but scored 28 points from 31 minutes in the loss to the Pacers.

Harden was back in good shooting form in the win over the Wizards. The Beard racked up nine assists with his 59 points while Westbrook chipped in with a triple-double too.

Point guards

This is again going to be a game where most of the points will be scored from the backcourt.

It will be difficult to shoehorn Westbrook, Harden and Irving into one team, due to the credit limit.

Austin Rivers
Austin Rivers is the son of LA Clippers coach Doc Rivers

Hence Irving is the big name in this position while he is joined by Austin Rivers and Spencer Dinwiddie.

Westbrook misses out from this game while Dinwiddie scored 20 points in his previous outing for the Nets.

Shooting guards

The Beard might have been struggling for consistency but he was back in form with 59 points in the win over the Wizards.

James Harden
James Harden is one of the best in the NBA

Harden almost recorded a double-double too, and the Rockets star could be up for another big night of scoring.

Small forwards

A balancing job needs to be done thanks to the credits spent on the big players.

Danuel House scored 16 points and provided seven assists for the Rockets in his last outing, and could be a smart option for the team.

Power forwards

Taurean Prince might not have scored big in the previous game, but the Nets star could get some handy points in the game against the Rockets.

Centers

DeAndre Jordan will be a monster on the boards for the Nets and should dominate the rebound stats.

The other center picked is Tyson Chandler, however, the Rockets star won’t get as many minutes as Jordan.

Star player

Harden has to be the star player for this game. The American has been in fine form this season and should be one of the top scorers from this game.

Prediction

With both teams struggling to contain the opposition, this should be a high scoring game.

However, the Rockets should have enough in the tank to fly past the Nets, especially with Westbrook and Harden looking good as a pair.
