LAC Vs DEN Dream11 Picks
Monte Morris was in horrid touch the last time around but the Denver Nuggets man will still hold onto his place in our Dream 11 side for the upcoming encounter. At 8.5 credits, his ability to pop up with a neat amount of baskets makes him a viable pick for us today.
Kawhi Leonard decided to go on a rampage in game 4 for the Clippers. While he’s been his side’s best performer all season long, the 30 point, 9 assist and 11 rebound showing he pulled off in the bygone outing saw him run play and clobber Denver.
Making the most of Kawhi forcing Denver to divert all energies towards him, Lou Williams used the open treys to drop 12 points with him triples. Denver on the other hand see us opt for Gary Harris with the shooting guard being flawless once again from the deep to down 10 points.
Michael Porter Jr. has given it his all in the series and the Denver Nuggets player will assiduously be at his best today as well. The stage hasn’t fazed him in the slightest and he’s bound to come alive today as well as he looks to emulate his 15 point and 6 rebound showing from game 4.
You never know what to expect from Landry Shamet with him liable of going off the boil on way too many occasions. However, we’ll be reposing faith in him with him bound to drop some points from the deep as Denver tire in the culminating stages.
Marcus Morris and his ability to pile on the points inside the paint have seen him emerge as a steady source of points. In a series which has conventionally been a low scoring one, Morris’ devout ability to backstep and shoot has seen him come up with a string of points.
Nikola Jovic is refusing to leave nay stone unturned as he strives to spark a revival in Denver’s ranks. The centre dropped yet another double-double with his 26-11 double-double making him a must have pick for us for the forthcoming outing.
The ease with which Leonard has cajoled his way points in every game see him be our star player while Jovic is the pro player.
