HOU Vs LAC Dream11 Point Guard
We had to begin our side with the selection of Luka Doncic from Dallas Mavericks. Not only his side’s most impressive performer this season but one of the most sublime young players in the land of NBA this season, the 28.5 ppg and 8.8 apg he has are a testament to his worldclass calibre as a player.
HOU Vs LAC Dream11 Shooting Guard
With 28 ppg and the 7.8 apg, we couldn’t have done without the services of Russell Westbrook for today’s imminent encounter. The player’s affinity to canter his way into the attacking component has seen him flourish not only owing to his ability to pull off quick break points but also send down points in the paint.
Elsewhere, the one player represents our side from Houston Rockets as well with Austin Rivers making place in our framework for the contest.
HOU Vs LAC Dream11 Small Forward
After the Rockets collapsed infront of the Knicks defensively the last time around, the Clippers’ Lou Williams makes for sublime value for the encounter. The small forward is going to thrive blatantly when opening the zone up for himself to send down points from the deep and come up with a slew of triples.
HOU Vs LAC Dream11 Power Forward
Slowly becoming the mainstay of his side’s defence with the 8.4 rpg, Robert Covington will be embedded in our Dream 11 side for this one. The player has an innate ability to pull off deflections, blocks and rebounds, one which has seen him transition the ball from defence to attack for his side with ease.
He’s partnered by Jeff Green for the day, a player who has come on as a substitute to send down points in the paint for his contingent at crucial junctures and rise to the occasion for the side.
HOU Vs LAC Dream11 Centre
Things are kept levelly balanced in this component of our Dream 11 side with the one player apiece coming from either team. We begin with Ivica Zubac from LA Clippers, a player who has utilised his repertoire of skill set to send attacking sorties transpired his way with disdain.
From the Rockets meanwhile, P.J. Tucker will be making a place in our side courtesy of his ability to pull off alley-oops and reverse scoops.
We’ll be opting for Westbrook as our star player given the player’s ability to both drop baskets and layup the ball for his counterparts.
