PHI vs UTA Dream11: With each passing day, the NBA witnesses more and more injuries and there are also huge chances of a player being inserted in health and safety protocols due to the COVID-19 surge. Let us hope there are not too many absentees in this game where the Utah Jazz fight it out against the Philadelphia 76ers. Jazz has more than double wins than losses while Philly has recovered their record and sits three games above the 50% win mark.
Philly had lost more than half of the games when Embiid was out but since he has come back, the team has played much better. 76ers has engaged in both high-scorers and low-scorers and even without Simmons, they can field an effective unit.
Jazz has a boisterous lineup that is based upon multiple shooters and scorers. The guard position looks the deepest in the league while at the team has adopted a high-scoring method to bury opponents. Utah looks like one of the top three or four teams in the league right now and has incredible depth.
Host: Philadelphia 76ers
Visitors: Utah Jazz
Match Timing: 10 December, @ 05:30 AM

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
76ers: Embiid is the pillar
Joel Embiid keeps opponents off the boards, he lodges 25-30 points regularly and can be a huge defensive factor, but more than that he provides a vocal leadership and active presence. With shooters like Harris at wing and Seth as an off-guard, Joel can operate with freedom inside and fend off double teams too. One downside recently has been the play of Tyrese Maxey who has gone into a shell, scoring in 6-9 points range after starting the season with 20+ multiple outings.
Jazz: Too many scorers
Donovan Mitchell has been dropping 30 points or more recently, now if you surround a player like him with scorers and shooters like Bogdanovic, Conley, Ingles, Clarkson, O’Neale, and Gay then great things are bound to happen. Jazz has a bunch of scorers and they are deep at guard, with three playmakers at their disposal. With Rudy Gobert anchoring the middle and dipping in easy paint points, the Jazz’s offensive system is one of the deepest and toughest to stop in the league.

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-50
Joel Embiid(PHI )
Embiid’s low-post game is not far away from Wilt Chamberlain minus Wilt’s athleticism of course. Joel is the oxygen to the Sixers team and has given them solid games of 28, 43, 32 in the last three outings while grabbing 12 or more boards twice and dishing four or more assists thrice in a row. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 47-66

Seth Curry(PHI )
Seth Curry has become one of the most dependable perimeter shooters in the league. He bolsters the Sixers’ attack and has scored in the 17-23 points range in most games recently.
