BKN vs LAC Dream11:With COVID-19 wave sweeping prominently yet again, the NBA has once again been hit by the pandemic. Still, the league has devised various ways to make sure that more and more games keep taking place. It is nothing sort of a miracle that NBA has avoided more than 20 postponements and it seems like the relaxed quarantine rules and the provision of signing ten-day deal players has been working.
Brooklyn Nets have seen three of their games postponed but with Durant and Aldridge back in the last game, they have more than enough players to participate unlike mid-December. Nets lost the last game but still stand on the top of the Eastern Conference standings, which means that a loss or two can be tolerated. The Nets look imposing with Durant, Harden, and potentially Irving play during away from home fixtures.
Los Angeles Clippers have been battling hard without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, two of their best all-around players. The team has an experienced lineup and the veteran unit can pull through in difficult situations. With Morris, Jackson, Bledsoe, Mann, Kennard, and some sturdy bench players, the Clippers have been doing better than I expected.
Host: Brooklyn Nets
Visitors: Los Angeles Clippers
Match Timing: 2 January, @ 05:30 AM
Venue: Barclays Center
Nets: Durant+Harden is a potent combination
Kevin Durant and James Harden are both scoring in the 30s the days and along with an inside option like Aldridge and a shooter like Mills, the Nets can field an effective offensive team. If Mills become a regular 15+ points scorer along with Durant and Harden then the Nets’ chances will skyrocket further. Remember, Kyrie can only play in road games, and in that case, the Nets will have three options who can go past 25 regularly. What a boon that can be! Still, if Mills and Aldridge continue to dip around 15 or so then the Irving void can at least be half filled.
Clippers: Resistance is there
Yes, Clippers have lost some games without George in the fray but they have battled on. However, when the team played the Nets the last time, they were overrun completely and leaked 120+ points while scoring 108. LA Clippers’ defense has weakened with both George and Leonard out but it hasn’t been that terrible considering how much personnel they have been missing. The Clippers squad can do a bit better on defense, their offense has suffered too but with Jackson back, they have a 18+ points scoring option who can make key buckets. The LA Clippers will stand a better chance if they improve their defense further.

KD has been having an MVP-type season and has once again broken through the scoring charts. For Kevin, crossing the 30 points mark became a norm last month and he can propel his team to multiple wins if he continues playing this. He is one of the favorites for the Star-Player in the Dream11 NBA scene.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 50-63
Jackson got back in the mix during the game against the Raptors and gave the team the missing scoring punch. However, he may need to go past 20 points for the Clippers to have a more effective offense.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-35
Harden has been back for three games since his COVID-19 induced absence. What has he done? He has scored 30+ and dished 10 or more assists in all of those games, showing his varied skillset and shooting better than October/November.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 51-70
Aldridge had been playing with full force before the COVID-19 outbreak hit the returnee. He has been figuring in the 12-18 points and 6-10 rebounds range this season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-32
After a few lackluster, Mann has had a couple of strong outings now, scoring 17 or more twice in a row, which is a real boost. Can he continue his strong scoring and pull down 7+ rebounds.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-37
Marcus has been in wonderful touch on the offensive end since December. He has lodged 20 points or more in most games since mid-November. He has scored 23 points or more in four of the last five games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-32
