DAL Vs DEN Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Teetering Dallas Mavericks find their hardwork of the first half unravelling with a spate of defeats
After enduring a 119-109 defeat to San Antonio Spurs the last time in the land of the NBA, Dallas Mavericks find themselves staring at two strength defeats in the league. The recent set of events have left the side with a mere two wins in their last five encounters to sit precariously close to being shunted out of the top 8 of the Western Conference.
The second half of the season has been an abject one for the side which surpassed all expectations in the first half of the marquee league. From torching their way into the pinnacles of the Western Conference to now sitting in seventh place, the downward spiral has been an appalling one for the side with the team sitting on the cusp of losing their status as a top 8 outfit.
And when they entertain third placed Denver Nuggets, things are going to continue to remain sticky for the outfit. They are up against a side which has aspirations of sealing second spot in the conference with the side putting down Milwaukee Bucks 109-95 in their most recent outing, a result which was a testament of the pulsating brand of basketball they have fabricated all season.
18-13 away from their home, Denver Nuggets have managed to fared off reasonably well in opposition territory. And they should manage to pull off a solid performance today as well, one where they capitalise on Dallas’ inadequacies to drop points at crucial junctures to come out of this with a win in their kitty.

Dream 11 Picks

The sole reason for Dallas Mavericks punching above their weight this season has been their maverick player Luka Doncic. This has been a sortie where hi travails have seen him emerge as a mainstay of his side’s attacking gameplan, showings which have seen him be regarded in the same breath as some of the finest players this term.
He’s topping the scoring ranks for his side with the 20.3 ppg and the 6.8 apg to make him a regulation selection for our side today. Elsewhere, we are snaring the one pick from Denver Nuggets as well over here with Monte Morris being inculcated into our team on the day.

While his 8.4 ppg are steady enough, the 5.2 rpg Maximillian Kleber is registering for Dallas Mavericks see us enshrine him in our framework for the day.
