Updated on: Oct 10, 2022 1:39 am IST
CLE vs PHI Dream11: The NBA Preseason is all about finding the final combinations and about roster cuts. Well, much of the set-up is almost in play for most teams and at best, preseason is about which a couple of players will make the final cut and who will the team cut. The main rotations will largely remain unaffected barring a few minutes here and there. It is like a scrimmage and in this scrimmage, Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Philadelphia 76ers.
This is the second time these two will meet in five days and in their last meeting, the 76ers plucked a close 113:112 win as Tyrese Maxey stacked up 21 points. Donovan Mitchell had a solid outing but the Cavaliers won’t sweat the result at all as their roster looks set for a deep Playoffs run.
Host: Cleveland Cavaliers
Visitors: Philadelphia 76ers
Match Timing: 11 October, @ 04:30 AM

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Cavs: They are upgraded
While last season, the Cavs did a great job on the defensive end using their four-bigs lineup with Mobley and Jarrett Allen as Centers and Lauri Marrkanen as the stretch-four, they missed having a productive off-guard. Darius Garland was the major shot-creator and was often in a lonely island, overburden with ball-handling duties. The Cavs found a perfect solution; bring in Donovan Mitchell. Someone who can allow Garland to be both a ball-handler and also play off-the-ball. Isaac Okoro can be the defensive stopper while the bench looks deep with Raul Neto, Caris LeVert and Kevin Love, but at some point, they will need Ricky Rubio.
Sixers: Locked and loaded
With James Harden at the helm, there is no shortage of crisp passes and long-range shooting, and with Embiid in the middle, you will keep multiple defenders busy. Therefore, these two will manufacture a ton of open looks again and with another shot-creator Tyrese Maxey, the ceiling for the 76ers’ offense looks high. Tobias Harris and PJ Tucker as the two Forwards ensure tough defense and Harris just needs to hit his open shots. The bench seems upgraded with the arrival of De’Anthony Melton and Montrezl Harrell. Can Embiid and Harden remain healthy for most parts?
