Dream 11 Picks
Top scoring for the Raptors in game 6, Kyle Lowry’s gargantuan 33 point showing ensures his side was able to take the series into the decider. The point guard has been the fulcrum of the side’s attack in the semi-finals and we envision him popping up with yet another game changing showing today.
As ever, he will be finding coverage in Fred VanVleet. Fred peaked in the foregone outing as he 21 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds to show why he’s become a mainstay in the side’s attack.
Boston Celtics meanwhile see us reign in Brad Wanamaker in a docket comprising of three picks. In a game where he had to shell out a staggering amount for the wordclass names, Brad at just 7.5 credits makes for a sublime pick given his 6 points the last time around.
Marcus Smart couldn’t have done any more for Boston Celtics than he pulled off in game 6. In what was one of his most exceptional performances of the season, he pulled off a staggering triple-double of 23-11-10 to make him an instant pick for us today.
There’s just no halting Jaylen Brown’s run at the moment. He’s improving with each passing game, going from strength to strength as he top scored for his side in game 6 with a behemoth 31 points, one accompanied by 16 rebounds.
The Raptors meanwhile see OG Anunoby retain his place in our setup for today. The small forward is protecting his side’s rim to perfections as his 13 boards from the last time around saw him end up with the most rebounds for the second game running.
His dwindling form has resulted in Robert Williams losing favour in Boston’s shooting arounds. However, he’s someone who can come alive at any time, a player capable of treading past this decline to see us opt for him.
Boston’s centre, Daniel Theis lines up our Dream 11 docket for the forthcoming affair. His windmills, reverse scoops and spin and slams translated into 18 points in game 6 to see his side take the tie all the way to overtime.
The manner in which Lowry is pilling on the baskets at the moment, it was only rightful to make him the star player while Brown is the pro player.
