Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team Prediction: Team News
DEN v ATL NBA: Team News Denver Nuggets
With Aaron Gordon and JaVale McGee coming into the team post the trading, Denver will look confident. They had a very emotional last week. Their 113-108 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans despite the loss of Gary Harris is a great sign for them.
Nikola Jokić, Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr are in great form. Jokić had an MVP-caliber performance with 37 points. He also had nine assists, and six rebounds last Friday against the New Orleans Pelicans. Perhaps, the three combined 85 points for the Nuggets.

Denver (27-18) will be starting with Aaron Gordon and JaVale McGee, which makes the match more interesting. Gordon who “prides on his defensive game” will surely add more value to the team with McGee’s rim protection.
DEN v ATL NBA: Team News Atlanta Hawks
Atlanta (23-22) has looked like a different team after dismissing their old coach Lloyd Pierce. They are now fifth in the Eastern Conference following their eight straight wins after Nate McMillan took over as coach.
Trae Young will be the man to watch out for the Atlanta Hawks. Though he averages 23.9 points per game on 31.9 per cent shooting from beyond the arc, his playmaking ability makes him a great player for the team. Young averages 9.5 assists per game in the last 10 games.

Atlanta ranks second in the league in terms of free-throw rate this season. This makes them one of the strongest team. Moreover, they had also tasted a sweet win over Denver (123-115). With Young leading Atlanta’s offence, the Hawks are going to get plenty of trips to the free-throw line.
Another good news for the Hawks is their clean defensive form. They rank 13th in opponent free throw rate. This proves their disciplined defensive line up and how they are avoiding fouls.
