LAL Vs DEN Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Lakers on a three game losing spree as the side loses steam ahead of the playoffs
While the Lakers’ current torrid form in the league has not taken the shine of their season, the three games they have gone onto lose in succession have raised question marks for the side’s invincible stature. The bubble was always going to be a tough course to traverse for the club, one the side has faltered to successfully ease its way out of.
While the side’s starting 5 is one capable of ripping any team into shreds, the overall roster has been far from impressive. The side has struggled to field out a daunting side in this hectic and congested slate of fixtures with the team’s substitutes failing to make their appearances in the seeding round count.
And with David waning in form across the last three encounters, the Lakers have failed to live upto the staunch stature they have earned after asserting themselves of top spot in the Western Conference. Now as the club gets ready to embark on its closing two games before the playoffs, the Lakers know that the need to get out of their quagmire is an incessant one.
LAL Vs DEN Dream11 Probable Winner
Where the Lakers have gotten cold feet across the last week, Denver Nuggets have been more or less impeccable in the seeding round. With three wins in five games, the side continues to breathe down Clippers’ necks as it strives to clinch second spot in the conference.
With injured names returning, Denver make for a formidable opposition for a regressing Lakers’ outfit today. They’ll pose a stern test to the Lakers with us envisioning Denver making it four defeats on the spin for the Lakers today.

LAL Vs DEN Dream11 Picks
Jamal Murray returned to the Denver Nuggets outfit for the first time inside the bubble and his appearance gave an instant boost to the side. The point guard bolstered any already rampant contingent with a piquant 23-12 double-double to see his side ease their way to a two point win against Utah Jazz.
Monte Morris dropped 15 points in the same affair to see him come in for us with the two capable of exploiting the deep and shooting triples with consummate ease. Los Angeles Lakers will see Alex Caruso be inducted in our side, with the 6.7 ppg point guard managing to compensate for Rondo’s absence.
With 6 ppg, Torrey Craig from Denver Nuggets will be inducted into our setup as the shooting guard. He emerged with 11 points and 7 rebounds the last time around for the club, numbers which emoted towards his ability to make his presence felt inside the paint.
Michael Porter Jr. just can’t stop punching above his weight at the moment. The small forward has completely transformed his game ever since the bubble has begun with him delivering a game winning 23-11 double-double for the side the last time around to add to his ever growing pile of imperious performances.
At a time when the Lakers just can’t manage to string together a meaningful set of substitutes, Dion Waiters has managed to do reasonably well for himself. He’s someone capable of delivering points inside the paint for the club to see him make an appearance for us today.
Anthony Davis has struggled off late with his regressing from directly impacting the club as well. However, he’s a wordclass player, someone whose currently enduring his finest ever season at the club with his rebounds, deflections and steals seeing him make the Lakers side such a defensive force.
Nikola Jovic showed why Utah Jazz is his favourite team the last time around. The centre came up with an immaculate game winning showing of 30 points, 7 assists and 11 rebounds, a performance which a testament to this expansive skill set he has ingrained in him.
His succulent 30 point game sees us make Nikola our side’s star player while Davis is the pro player.
