NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
76ers: Reflections from their first game
The Celtics ran riot on the 76ers, the 76ers allowed 39, 35 points in the second and third quarters in what was a defense that was in disarray. The Celtics shot 56% from the field and made 12 of their 35 attempts from three. In Summary, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown obliterated them and racked up 35 points each in a rather shabby start to their season. Their defense wasn’t even close to stopping these two as both of them shot 50%+. This is not a great defensive start for the 76ers a statement from the Celts.
The 76ers’ bench accounted for just 11 points. They did shoot well from the field and the 76ers shot 50% from the field. The 76ers just had 16 assists, relying mostly on the isolation side of things. They were aggressive driving the game, making 24 of 28 free throws. The biggest concern was the poor defense of Philadelphia. But this is just one game, you never know when things click for the Embiid-Harden duo, 81 games remain.
Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis remains in the hunt for another title
Giannis Antetokounmpo is one of the most dominant players to ever play the game. He can drive hard to the rim and cause havoc as a rebounder, and defender, and perform various other tasks. Jrue Holiday remains a disruptive defender while the team will miss the services of wing Khris Middleton who is a big difference-maker as a floor spreader. Brook Lopez continues to seal the deal as a help defender and can be a scorer at a balanced keel,
Bobby Portis can slate in as a starter too and fill the Khris Middleton shoes for a bit. He can be a borderline double-double player. Not having Pat Connaughton initially hurts and the team will depend upon Giannis at the end of day. It will be interesting to see how Grayson Allen plays defense and if he is able to nail the long ball consistently. The Bucks will have to rely upon their veteran bench to provide some relief.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Forward Giannis is a spectacular all-around player and he is the one who will be carrying the major hopes of the team. Antetokounmpo is a brilliant player overall. I believe he will be in 29-36 points, 10-14 rebounds, 6-9 assists, and 1-3 steals/blocks range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Joel is a strong inside player who uses a lot of high-post and low-post moves whereas he can also pull down big-time boards and help defense. I believe he will be in 20-26 points, 10-15 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range.
Jrue is a major difference-maker on the defensive end and he can also pump in scoring, playmaking, and his presence will be vital in the absence of Middleton. I believe he will be in 18-25 points, 6-9 assists, and 5-8 rebounds range.
Harden is an imaginative playmaker and he can also knock down the long shoot while hounding boards. He was on fire in the previous game and made five out of nine threes, which is a welcome sign. I believe he will be in 20-26 points, 8-11 assists, 5-8 rebounds, and 1-3 steals range.
Portis is a prolific rebounder who can also make the outside shots and play some terrific off-the-ball basketball and is a serviceable defender. I believe he will be in 12-18 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 1-3 steals/blocks range.
Maxey is a wonderful scorer who can score in numerous ways and he will be key as the trio of the team. I believe he will be in 17-24 points and 4-6 assists range.
