LAC Vs MEM Dream11 Prediction: Clippers find themselves staring at yet another rut with the team winless in its last three outings.
On a three-game losing spree, LA Clippers have one again unravelled to lose ground in their ambitions of sealing second place in the Western Conference. At a time when Denver Nuggets were slipping in form as well, the Clippers had the perfect opportunity to make up lost distance, a task they have abjectly faltered in.
The most abject result in that string of defeats was the one the side endured the last time around with the side being put down by Sacramento Kings. The 112-103 defeat was one which the side would have found extremely hard to digest and with Denver winning their foregone encounter, the Clippers further stumbled in their agenda of making massive strides in the conference.
Embarking on the final stretch of encounters in the league after the break, the Clippers will be well aware of the fact that they can’t afford any more slipups at the moment. It’s something which sees them come hot out of the blocks today when they square off against 8th placed Memphis Grizzlies, a side which itself isn’t he decline with two straight wins.
22-6 at home, the Clippers should extend that emphatic record comes today. They have shown tenacity and vigour in front of their ardent supporters and up against a side with a paper-thin defence, the Clippers should manage to get their house in order today to emerge with a win from this one.

Dream 11 Picks
His side’s top scorer with the 17.6 ppg and 6.9 apg, Ja Morant becomes an instant pick for us from Memphis Grizzlies for this upcoming encounter. He is going to be integral to the side’s chances of coming out of this one unscathed, a player who has not only pulled of turnovers at crucial junctures but dropped points in the paint as well.
He’s partnered up by Tyus Jones as we opt for a one-two of picks from the land of the Memphis setup for this one.
In Lou Williams, the side come equipped with a player who’ll capitalise on Memphis’ inability to block and screen treys with the duo intertwining its ability to lay down points from the deep to register a slew of triples today.
His side’s leading scorer with the 27.3 ppg, Kawhi Leonard was always going to be a regulation pick for us for this upcoming tie. He has the 7.5 rpg to go with them, numbers which allude towards how he’s taken mainstay in both the components of his side’s play this season o guide them towards consummate success.
After stellar displays in the bygone clashes, we are moving in with the calibre filled and vibrant partnership of Brandon Clarke and Gorgui Dieng. The two are names capable of not only sending down alley-oops, reverse scoops and laying up the ball for the counterparts but can pull off deflections to affect quick breakpoints from their side.
Elsewhere, the three-year deal which Marcus Morris was handed over by the Clippers recently was a testament to the kind of pulsating impact he’s had the club at the short time. His scrimmages on the court have been pivotal with the player emerging as a stalwart to earn direct entry into their shootarounds to see us hammer him down in our side.
Maurice Harrell comes in for us from LA Clippers in their ambit. He has dropped a flurry of points inside the paint with him not only latching onto the second-chance points and rebounds but holding a high conversion rate in shooting field points as well.
His ability to come up with triple-doubles sees us make Leonard our star player for the forthcoming clash.
