Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers Dream11 Prediction: Dream 11 Fantasy Tips for GSW vs LAC in Game 3 of Playoff as The SportsRush helps you form the best possible Dream 11 Team.
Woof, what a game 2 we had. Literally no one gave the Clippers a chance to take even a single game in this series. And it especially looked bleak when the Clippers were down by 31 points in the 3rd quarter.
But Warriors had their breakdown that they often do when associated with 3&1 and we saw the biggest come from behind victory in the playoffs ever. And while this is not a good sign for the Warriors, the Clippers being competitive spices up the series and increases the permutations and combinations that we can try in creating our team given the sheer number of players that seem to be having an impact when you combine both teams.
For Warriors Kevin Durant continues to underperform and he hasn’t managed to finish both games in the series after two technicals led to his ejection in game 1 and he fouled out in the second game. Patrick Beverly is in Durant’s head and Durant seems to be incapable at the moment of flipping a switch and changing the scenario. He also rejected Kerr’s assessment that he needs to take more shots for the Warriors to do better suggesting that passing the ball and even distribution of shots is the way to go for the Dubs.
Steph Curry’s shot seemed to go cold in the 4th quarter but he still managed 29 points, but Kevon Looney who we backed for the game, continued to prove his fit with the way the team plays with 19 points and 5 rebounds.
For the Clippers the 3 usual suspects shone as expected. Gallinari proved his value as a scorer with 24 points along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Lou Williams kept up his amazing scoring and passing streak with 33 points and 11 assists! Montrezl Harrell once again proved Warriors shortcoming in dealing with an aggressive big man by scoring 25 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. Landry Shamet was very good defensively and had a good statistical night with 12 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists.
I asked Patrick Beverley what he sees when he watches his game tape back — outside of the emotions of the game — and he said he sees passion. He sees someone he would like to have on his team. #GSWvsLAC

Dream 11 Predictions of Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers
Point Guard: Steph Curry
Curry had a poor shooting second half but still ended the game with 29 points. He has maximized his scoring ability and Landry Shamet’s best defense is what resulted in 29 points, or else we could have seen even more. Curry is averaging 33.5 points per game this series and with Beverly firmly rooted to Durant, Curry will continue scoring. Nothing is going to stop that.
Shooting Guard: Lou Williams
Leaving Lou Will off the team at this point is travesty. He is the best player through the first two games combined at this point. He is averaging 29 points and 10 assists through the two games and that is a whole lot of points. Best part is, Warriors played some of their best defense on him late in the game and they couldn’t stop him. Not from scoring, nor from assisting. So keep him on your team and seriously consider him for star player.
Small Forward: Andre Iguodala
Leaving Durant off is risky, but he refuses to be aggressive and somehow seems to think not going at Beverly is a better way to show he is unperturbed by him than meeting him head on. So at his price point of 19.5 Cr, Durant isn’t providing enough value. But a combination of Iggy and Jaymichael Green is priced lower than Durant alone and their combined stats have outscored Durant in both the games. Iggy does it all with scoring assisting and grabbing boards. Plus in playoffs he remains one of Warriors most crucial players, so he will continue to get high minutes.
Power Forward: JayMichael Green & Draymond Green
Brothers Green will provide solid rebounding sharing close to 15 rebounds between them. They will also both score 20 points combined. And Draymond gets 7+ assists in most playoff games. So that is solid points at the 4 spot with 20 points, 15 rebounds and 8-10 assists. The price for that is 23.5 Cr (cheaper than James Harden alone, who will give similar stats, albeit with 10 more points and 10 fewer rebounds)
Center: Montrezl Harrell, Kevon Looney & Andrew Bogut
Harrell is an automatic pick for the team. His 20-25 points and 10 boards are very valuable for the Clippers and in Dream 11. There is no one on the Warriors roster that looks adequate to deal with his presence inside the paint so he will continue his mean streak being fed by Lou Williams who has suddenly turned into John Stockton with his passing.
Looney is the best Center left on the Warriors after Cousins went down last game. He is anyway a better fit with the team than Cousins was. He has improved his inside scoring and scoring through contact tremendously and he gets a lot of good looks close to the rim due to the attention KD, Klay and Steph draw from the outside.
Bogut is our cheapest pick on the team and with no Draymond, he is the most traditional big man Warriors have left. If Harrell gets loose on Looney over and over, Warriors will have to take action as they can not afford to lose any more games. That will most likely mean more and more minutes for Bogut, and if nothing else, he will provide a lot of points through rebounds. His stats last game in just 16 minutes (about to increase) were 9 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 points. That will only improve.
Star Player options:
- Steph Curry
- Lou Williams
- Draymond Green
