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 threat of COVID-19 has spoiled the mood and the NBA is being engulfed by it more and more each day. Here, the Boston Celtics face a tough Golden State Warriors outfit. Boston has won half of its 28 games while the Warriors are way on top with just five losses and an incredible 23 wins.

The Celtics season hasn’t been impressive so far considering the talent level. Yes, the team beat a stacked Bucks team in the last game but a 5-6 game winning streak is yet to arrive. There are some issues related to team chemistry but perhaps with Jaylen Brown returning, the team can mount a more effective campaign.

The Warriors have shown the world that they are one of the deepest teams in the NBA. They have won these many games without their primetime player Klay Thompson and rookie sensation James Wiseman. Led by Curry and Green, the team holds a promise to clinch the NBA championship.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Celtics: They are inconsistent
Boston has struggled massively at times. Despite fielding a roster with a phenomenal scorer in Jayson Tatum, who can drop 30 on many nights along with Jaylen Brown who can notch around 20, the team has two stellar guards in Marcus Smart and Dennis Schroeder. In the frontline Al Horford and Robert Williams bring a lot of size and to be honest, the Celtics’ defense should be way better because all these players are also excellent individual defenders. Boston has team chemistry issues and the squad needs to iron them out as soon as possible.

Warriors: Too many options, superb team chemistry

One thing that sets apart the Warriors from many other teams is that they have played with the same core for many years and that is why the team chemistry between Poole, Curry, Green, Wiggins, Looney, Damion Lee, etc. looks on point. This is why I am surprised that the Celtics whose three-four players have stuck as a core haven’t done as well. Warriors have two major playmakers in Curry and Green. Gifted isolation scorers in Curry, Wiggins, and Poole plus a bench that can come through when needed. It is scary that all this has been done without Klay Thompson and James Wiseman.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 22
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 03
Blocks: 01
Steals: 01

Steph is the key to the Warriors’ cause and his scoring directly affects the team’s overall tally. The guard is scoring in the 22-27 points range these days but you feel one of those 35+ points night is lurking around.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-46

Jayson Tatum(BOS)
Points: 42
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 04
Steals: 01
Tatum has carried the Boston offense throughout the season. He has constantly scored in the 24-34 points range but can go off for 40 or more as you can see above while compiling 5-10 rebounds constantly. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-52

Al Horford(BOS)
Points: 10
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 04
Blocks: 01
Horford’s production has been down compared to earlier in the season but he remains a sturdy presence in the frontcourt. He is figuring in the 7-10 points range and 4-8 rebounds these days.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-30

Draymond Green(GSW)
Points: 08
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 07
Blocks: 03
Steals: 01

Green is as important as Curry to the team because he is the defensive anchor, primary playmaker, and gritty rebound. The big Forward has figured in the 7-10 points, 7-11 rebounds and 6-10 assists range regularly.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42

Jaylen Brown(BOS)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 05
Steals: 02
Blocks: 01

Jaylen at off-guard provides a lift scoring-wise, defense-wise, and is an all-around player. I expect him to figure in 19-24 points range, 4-8 rebounds, and 4-6 assists range if he is healthy.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-46

Andrew Wiggins(GSW)
Points: 18
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 03
Andrew has been in fine touch throughout his Warriors tenure and is a key part of the setup. Wiggins has scored in the 16-19 points range mostly while grabbing 5-7 rebounds.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-39
