PHX vs DET Dream11: In this game, the Phoenix Suns take on the Detroit Pistons. You could not have asked for a more contrasting affair as a scorching Suns squad, that has won 17 games in a row fight it out against Pistons who have just 4 wins all season and have lost their 7 games. For more details such as last game stats, player profile, and fantasy lineup, read the full article.
Phoenix has been doing a great job on both ends of the floor and even held the top-heavy Warriors to under 100 points, which was the first time that Golden State had scored under 100 points. Suns have been to the NBA Finals last season and you can see why they reached so far. They are, in my opinion, the most balanced team that gets the best out of each player.
Pistons have had another painful season and they are just too young and inexperienced right now. Pistons’ record is not a surprise and you’d have expected this kind of performance from them. Detroit is just focusing on the development of the young players right now, winning is not at the top of their agenda it seems.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
With Paul stationed as the platoon commander, the offense flows like an uninterrupted river. Booker can put up 20-30 points on a regular basis. Meanwhile, Ayton can both grab boards and stack up big time points. On the other hand, with Crowder and Bridges at the wing, you get top-notch defense and Bridges is also a determined scorer. With a bench of Landry Shamet, JaVale McGee, Cameron Johnson, and Cameron Payne, scoring is not an issue as Shamet, Johnson, and Payne are top-notch shooters while McGee can grab points and rebounds at a quick rate. I think the team can find scorers even if Booker is sidelined for a few games.
Detroit has been reeling right now and has not won for 10 days or more and the team has been unable to produce offense on a consistent basis. Yes, the defense has improved quite a bit but when you score 90-98 mostly, you can’t expect to win many games in this league. Detroit has a bunch of first and second players so their slide is also a result of inexperience. Detroit will hope that Saddiq Bey, Cade Cunningham, Killian Hayes, and Isaiah Stewart learn through pain.
