Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers Dream11 Prediction: Dream11 Fantasy Tips for GSW vs LAC as The SportsRush helps you form the best Dream 11 team.
The Warriors meltdown in game 2 is a thing of the past now and game 3 saw the return of prime Kevin Durant as he single-handedly destroyed the Clips scoring 38 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds after getting tossed in game 1 and fouling out in the game 2 loss. Beverly sat outside with his soul crushed as Durant kept scoring despite Beverly’s best defense and the Clippers got a reality check.
But far too often this season, the Warriors surround great games with very average ones, just that their average is still pretty great for most teams. The Warriors need to avoid any complacency and keep up their intensity. They don’t want a long series against the Clippers with the Rockets primes for a sweep.
The longer the Warriors play, the more rested and fresh the Rockets will be. So Warriors in 5? Just seems like the previous game crushed LAC’s soul after putting in such a good effort, being blown out by 30 (not including garbage time) is just way too demoralizing.
My gut says Warriors sweep the next 2 games and look to find momentum that they can carry forward to the next series against the Rockets which might be their toughest test in the post season.
Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers Dream11 Prediction
Steph Curry is averaging 45 D11 points per game in this series with 29.3 points, 7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game to go with 1 steal per game.
Given Durant blowing hot and cold this series, Curry is the safest bet for star player between the two teams, especially after the Warriors completely shut down Lou Williams in the game 3 and provided a blueprint on how to keep him ineffective throughout the series.
Jerome Robinson is a filler pick. Klay Thompson hasn’t been able to get going throughout the series and what feels like the case for the entire season. His defense remains solid, but even that seems to be a notch below his usual standards this series. He is averaging 24 D11 points per contest and at 14 Credits that is very low value.
Lou Williams having Iguodala on him the whole game does not seem the same menace that he was in game 1 and 2. And Warriors are going to stick with what worked so at 16 Credits he also remains a big risk. Hence the cheap filler pick who might get minutes in case of another blowout which is a definite possibility.
Kevin Durant is undroppable for most games, but an angry and dedicated Durant is Star power potential in every playoff game. He had a game high 54.3 D11 points in game 3 and Warriors will know that he is the way forward in this series at least, when he is this aggressive.
And when Warriors look to find a guy, that guy reaps the rewards. Durant will get a lot of shots and being the best shooter from all 3 spots in the league, if he gets his shots, he will bury his shots. So no questions here.
Andre Iguodala is a great defender, maybe the best on the Warriors, and the best in the playoffs overall. Unfortunately even that good defense is not rewarding unless it leads to blocks and steals.
But Iggy has been doing a bit of everything this season and those are stats that are translating to points. He is averaging close to 30 points per contest in this series and at his 8 credit price point that translates to 3.7 points per credit. Hallelujah!
Draymond Green in playoffs is a fantasy dream. He does it all. He is a great rebounder and passer in all games, but he gets his numbers way up in the playoffs, but its not just those numbers, his points also start climbing up once playoffs start as he gets more aggresive. He is averaging 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 blocks per game. That is a massive stat line and even a 14 Credit price is too little for that.
Jamychal Green is averaging 20 D11 points per game this series and is doing an impressive job with his 3 point shot. Most Clippers players who provide decent value are priced very high, but not Jamychal Green, so he finds a place in the team.
Montrezl Harrell had a poor game 3 but has otherwise had a great series and none of the Warriors big men are doing a good job of containing his physicality. His average for the series is 35 points per game so he is a handy player to give you the steady points.
Andrew Bogut had a very impressive game 3 as we predicted. His value has gone up to 7.5 Cr but even that is very low for a guy who managed 38+ points on this Warriors team without needing a lot of shots. That is very impressive.
