BOS vs GSW Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The reigning champions Golden State Warriors will be looking for their 2nd consecutive win when they host a slumping Boston Celtics in an NBA match at Oracle Arena, in Oakland, California, United States, on Wednesday morning (IST).
The Warriors ended a two-game skid with a 117-120 win against the highly talented, but depleted, Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia. The big teams, who are in the comfort zone are tweaking with their starting lineup, and Warriors aren’t untouchable. It shows in the results.
The Dubs are now 6-4 in the last 10 matches after beating Philadelphia 76ers 117-120 in the last match. Klay Thompson was an absentee due to a knee injury, which was alleviated by the absence of Joel Embiid in the Sixers’ ranks.
Boston Celtics meanwhile are heading South on the table after losing their fifth game in the last six matches. They lost 104-115 at home against Houston Rockets in the last match.
According to reports, the mud Celtics are in at the moment is thicker than their bad form. There seems to be a lack of mutual understanding between the players with Irving reportedly losing the respect of his teammates.

Players to watch out for:
Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry –The two-time NBA MVP is scoring points at a career-high average 28.4 points per game this season. He is a vital cog in Warriors’ wheel and the team struggles both defensively and offensively whenever he doesn’t play.
Kevin Durant – Warriors are fretting over his contract which will run down in the summer. There are no confirmation about whether he will sign with his current team. Definitely, there are not many players who can match his incredible talent and ambitions. The former Oklahoma City Thunder is averaging 27.6 points per game.
Kyrie Irving – The 2016 NBA champions is Boston Celtics’ biggest superstar. He missed Celtics’ playoff run to the Eastern Conference finals last season where they were knocked out by LeBron’s Cleveland Cavaliers. He is fit and will be looking to go one step further with the Celtics this time around.
The 26-year-old is averaging 23.4 points per game and is racking up a team-high 6.9 assists per game.
Jayson Tatum – The young stalwart is into the 2nd year of his professional career, and feels like at home with the Greens. The 20-year-old is averaging 16.1 points per game.
