HOU vs NYK Dream11 Prediction

HOU vs NYK Dream11 Prediction:

COVID-19 has interrupted the NBA’s rhythm once again, and the phantom of COVID-19 continues to stalk the world. Two key players for the New York Knicks, who will face the Houston Rockets in this game, have been placed in health and safety protocols.

And for a club that has dropped four straight games, the Knicks are short on talent. The Rockets are in a similar situation, with many starters on the injured list.

The Rockets had been performing well, but now that Christian Wood, Eric Gordon, and Kevin Porter Jr are injured, they will have to rely on players off the bench.

Houston has been playing its best basketball since late November, but, like many other teams, their season is currently being jeopardised by injuries. Without two of its top scorers, Houston will struggle to find offence.

This season, the Knicks have made a lot of people sigh. It’s as though the entire team has returned from the field ice-cold.

The plan to bring in guards Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker backfired spectacularly, and Kemba Walker himself may be on the move. Is it possible for the Knicks to salvage their shambolic season?

Host: Houston Rockets

NBA forecasts, statistics, and analysis

Rockets: They have performed admirably.

The Rockets won seven games in a run at one time, only to lose 14 games in a row after that. Garrison Matthews, Eric Gordon, Christian Wood, and Jae’sean Tate spearheaded the revival.

Gordon has scored 20 points on several occasions, and Wood’s excellent rebounding and scoring have also been a threat to opponents. Matthews and Tate combined for 25-30 points, but if Eric and Christian are unable to play, the Rockets’ chances are severely harmed.

Knicks: They’re in a lot of trouble.

There are instances when the Knicks’ players shoot below 35 percent, which has been a major factor in the team’s inability to reach 100 points in recent games. The New York offence has gone under the radar, as almost all of the players have struggled to connect on a consistent basis, with the exception of Derrick Rose.

Evan Fournier’s offensive has suffered a significant setback, while Alec Burks’ offence has taken a break. Where can the squad obtain a jolt of energy? Julius Randle, the NBA’s best player, may have to straighten out his inconsistency on offence.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Alperen Sengun(HOU )
Points: 19
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 06
Steals: 02
Blocks: 01
Alperen Sengun is a rookie whose all-around toolkit must be enticing for the Houston management in the long run. His points range, rebounding rate, and assists numbers will depend upon whether Christian Wood plays or not.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-50

Julius Randle(NYK)
Points: 31
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 03
Steals: 02
Yes, Randle had a 31 points game against the Warriors and he will hope that spells change but largely the Power Forward has been highly inconsistent on offense. However, he can still clamp down 7-13 rebounds and dish 3-8 assists a game on a regular basis. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-52

Jae’Sean Tate(HOU)
Points: 12
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 01
Steals: 03
Tate has been one of the healthiest players in the league and has given a constant presence at the wing for the Rockets. He usually figures in the 10-14 points and 5-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-41

Derrick Rose(NYK)
Points: 15
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 06
Steals: 01
Rose is the only authentic playmaker on this Knicks team right now and he has to raise his game with the dent in the playing rotations. He can be expected to score 15-18 points and dish off 5-7 assists a night.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42

HOU vs NYK Dream11 Team Prediction

Christian Wood (HOU) has scored in the 20-25 points range and has clasped 9-14 rebounds a game. He missed the last game but hopefully will be back for this game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-38

Eric Gordon(HOU) who missed the last game has scored 24 or more points in most of his outings recently. Let us see if he plays here.

Alec Burks(NYK)
Points: 14
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 04
Steals: 01
One thing is for sure, a 4/15 shooting night versus the Warriors means Alec has joined the long list of Knicks players who have been ice cold all season long. Burks did get 14 in the last game but he will have to do it with a better efficiency.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 15-35
