DEN vs LAC Dream 11 Prediction: A second win on the bounce today takes the Clippers to the verge of making it into the finals.
After the Heat ended up thumping Milwaukee Bucks out of the conference semi-finals yesterday, Denver Nuggets will today be looking to down another big fish. Denver will turn to Miami’s performance to instil confidence in their ranks and power themselves towards a series leveling win against the Raptors.
After winning game 2 to restore parity in the conference semi-finals, Denver Nuggets failed to make the win count come game 3. Although they pushed the Raptors hard as they gave everything they had on the day to take the tie as close as 113-107, Denver were left languishing to once again face a deficit of 2-1 in the series.
While they’ll be ruing their showing infront of the post the last time around with their low rate when converting the field points resulting in their defeat, Denver still have plenty of positives to take home from the scrimmage. They made life torrid for the Clippers, a side which tottered and stuttered before just about doing enough to rake up a win.
This one promises to be yet another low scoring, edge of the seat thriller. We envision this being a spitting image of the foregone affair, one where LA Clippers’ ability to shoot both the triples and points in the paint sees the side ease its way to another win.

DEN vs LAC Dream 11 Prediction
Denver Nuggets’ Monte Morris will be inducted in our Dream 11 setup as the point guard for the day. He has kept piling on the points at a steady rate with his 9 points and 4 rebounds in game 3 making him a viable pick for us at just 8.5 credits.
After a slew of lacklustre displays. Denver’s Gary Harris finally came alive. He pulled off 10 points, 6 dimes and 4 boards, a showing which saw him finally prove his worth and justify the faith his side has reposed in him.
Kawhi Leonard is putting foot forward in the wrong direction in the series. The LA Clippers shooting guard came up with yet another flawless double-double with his 23 points, 6 assists and 14 boards making him a must have pick for today.
We are going to partner him up Lou Williams who piled on 10 points on the day, ones which saw him shoot with precision from the deep.
If Michael Porter Jr. did what he did in the foregone affair today as well, Denver Nuggets are in with a real shout of levelling the series. The small forward pulled off a sensational 18-10 double-double in game 3, a performance which continued his pathbreaking form in the bubble.

This docket comprises of a duo from LA Clippers. We’ll be beginning with the selection of Marcus Morris whose ability to come up points in the paint saw him deliver 12 points in by bygone outing.
We are going to be pairing him up with JaMychal Green who has massively elevated his showings across the last two fixtures. His 7 points and 3 rebounds in game 3 are bound to see him get a larger part in the side’s shooting arounds to make him an essential pick for the outing.
LA Clippers just can’t seem to stop Nikola Jokic in the series. The centre pulled off a staggering 32-12 double-double the last time around to put his side only within 6 points of a win to see him once again hammer his place in our framework for the encounter.
The manner in which Kawhi has roped his way the double-doubles see him be our star player for the day while Jokic is our pro player.
Morris, Kawhi, Williams, Harris, Michael, Green, Morris, Jokic.
