BOS vs GSW Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors

Share

BOS vs GSW Dream11: The NBA is heading towards its concluding stages and for sure, we have had another wonderful season. The two teams who remain here have overcome high-level competition to arrive here and the series will be done soon. The Golden State Warriors will enter with a three-two lead against the Boston Celtics. The Celtics will host the Warriors here and will hope that they are able to at least force a Game 7.

In Game 5, the Celtics were once again overwhelmed by the Warriors’ defense and lost 94:104 as Andrew Wiggins compiled 26 points a night and continued his incredible Playoffs run. The Celtics have been rather vulnerable at their home and the prospect of going against a charged-up Warriors team doesn’t bring much optimism? Can they make a comeback in this series or will the Warriors be crowned as the champions?

Visitors: Golden State Warriors

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Can the Celtics cut down on their turnovers?

The Celtics have been overwhelmed by the defense of the Warriors and they committed 18 turnovers in Game 5, which is 12 more by the Warriors. One big reason for that has been Jayson Tatum being crowded as soon as he touches the ball and Andrew Wiggins making life tough for him. On the other hand, the Warriors have been crisp with their possessions and have made sure that they don’t waste their possessions.

The Warriors have found different answers during different games and in the last match-up, despite an off-night by Curry, the team was able to pull through, thanks to Wiggins and Thompson combining for a spectacular 47 points effort. Wiggins has also done a wonderful job of nabbing rebounds, which has limited the second-chance opportunities for the Celtics that has two amazing offensive rebounders in Horford and Williams.

The Celtics have received some great performances from Marcus Smart, who has been dialed in. Brown and Tatum have been great in different games but an efficient effort in the same game has been tough to buy. Williams and Horford have been brilliant upfront but the Celtics have allowed Wiggins to extinguish that size advantage. White has had his moments too and his match-up with Poole can be decisive here off the bench.

Peak Performance Predictions

Highest rebounder: Al Horford: 12
Highest scorer: Stephen Curry: 33
Top assists-deliverer: Draymond Green: 9
Scoreline Prediction: Warriors 103   Celtics 97

*Stats from last game for both teams*
Jayson Tatum(BOS)
Points: 27
Rebounds: 10

Wing Jayson has been a huge factor in multiple ways but he will need to do a better job turnover-wise after he had shot 10/20 in the last game but coughed the ball up four times.

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 42-52

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 16
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 08
Steals: 02

After hitting daggers after daggers in the Celtics, Curry finally cooled off with a 7/22 night in the lat match. I believe he will bounce back and be in 24+ points, 5-8 assists, and 4-6 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-52

Jaylen Brown(BOS)
Points: 18
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 04

Klay Thompson(GSW)
Points: 21

Points: 20
Rebounds: 03

    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-34
  • Robert Williams(BOS) had 10 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Robert is a premier defender and also has gotten it done rebounding and paint-scoring wise. I believe he will be in 8-12 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range.
