NBA Regular Season
Venue – TD Garden
BOS vs GSW Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Boston Celtics and the reigning NBA Champions Golden State Warriors meet in an NBA match at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, on Sunday morning (IST).
No matter how congested and highly competitive Western Conference is these days, in the end, it will still be East vs West to decide who wins the ultimate prize.
Golden State Warriors are everybody’s favourite to win the Western Conference. But the question is who can win the East after LeBron James left Cleveland Cavaliers for Los Angeles Lakers?
According to reports, the Dubs see Boston Celtics as their biggest threat. Not because of the huff and puff interview by Kyrie Irving where he claimed to beat Warriors in a seven-game series, but because of Celtics’ overall talent and not to mention their pedigree as a franchise.
Regular Season Record-
Boston Celtics: W-25, L-18
Golden State Warriors: W-33, L-12
Players to watch out for:
Kyrie Irving – To some extent, he is still a work in progress. Because at 26, he can still learn a lot from the likes of LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. An outstanding talent who on his day can make any team pay with his skills and accuracy with the ball. The 2016 NBA Champion is leading the stats charts for his team this seaosn, racking up the most points per game.
Jayson Tatum – A superstar-in-the-making and an indispensable part of Celtics’ aspirations in the present context, the 20-year-old is undoubtedly having a very very good season. The Missouri born star is dropping points at 16.3 per game this season.
Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry – In any other season, Stephen Curry would have been a runaway candidate for the prestigious NBA MVP. But for some incredible consistency of Mr Beard, Curry finds himself 2nd on the list of NBA stats list.
The two-time NBA MVP is having the season of his life, breaking his own records, and racking up points at an incredible rate. The 30-year-old is dropping 29.5 points per game this season and is leading the league in true shooting percentage.
Kevin Durant – The 10-time NBA All-Star deserves more praise and attention than he normally gets from the media. But this season, there are more than a handful of players who have set the league on fire. The Greek-freak, the Beard and the Shooter, all have upped their game. That’s why Durant is somewhat playing as a second fiddle to all those outstanding players.
The former Oklahoma City Thunder superstar is averaging 27.5 points this season.
BOS vs GSW Dream11 TEAM NEWS:
Injured – Jabari Bird is expected to miss the match due to some personal reasons. He remains Celtics’ only confirmed absentee ahead of this match.

Suspended – None.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This game may be out of NBA regular season list, but it could be a potential NBA finals game as well. Boston Celtics are one of the hot favourites to win the Eastern Conference, while Golden State Warriors are always the team to beat in the West. And both the teams are in red-form, and it could really be a spectacle.
If Warriors’ winning streak faces its biggest test, then this game has to be that banana skin where Dubs come unstuck.
A win for Greens is our call.
