Celtics vs Clippers Fantasy NBA: Boston Celtics will enter the game after beating the Washington Wizards by 1 point behind a 31 points outing by Jayson Tatum. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Clippers will hit the floor after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks despite a 25 points effort by Kawhi Leonard. More information regarding BOS vs LAC Dream11 fixture will be given here.
Celtics’ season: Boston has struggled this season and their record doesn’t reflect the talent they have at different positions. Celtics have not managed to string together a strong win-streak and it is a surprise since Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have become elite scorers, so there is a lot of inspection that Brad Stevens, the coach of the team will need to go during the All-Star Break.
Clippers’ season: The Los Angeles Clippers have a formidable offensive and defensive lineup. They are placed 3rd in the NBA standings for Western Conference. Paul George’s play has improved since last season and he looks in superb touch. The Clippers can’t be content though as they are in a highly competitive Western Conference with top talents.

Leonard has been in superb form this season, and the multiple times NBA Finals MVP looks like he is on a mission. He has helped the Clippers secure their current ranking and continues to be perhaps the most intimidating offensive and defensive player, a rare combination in itself. Leonard averaged 28.0 PPG in the month of February. He is an incredible choice as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
The Forward for the Celtics is one of the most promising players in the league and he has the potential to become the best at his position. Apart from scoring, Jayson is also a great rebounder. Tatum’s scoring went down in February, as he managed 24.4 PPG compared to 28 PPG in January.
Jaylen has become a potent scorer like Jayson Tatum and has been improving each season. Brown forms one of the most formidable duos with Jayson Tatum but the Celtics need more from them at the defensive end too. Brown’s scoring also went down in February, where he averaged only 22.2 PPG.
PG-13 has seen improvement in his averages since last season and has looked to generate more wins for his team through his two-way chops. Although he has been terrific throughout this season, he has struggled to get close to 20 points mark since the last 3 games.
Kemba Walker: PPG: 18.3 APG: 4.4 RPG: 3.7 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 2.1 PFP: 36
The PG stuttered in the initial parts of the season as he was fresh from the injury but he has been gaining his rhythm. Kemba has now averaged 23.2 PPG and 5.4 APG since the last 5 games.
Lou Williams: PPG: 12.4 APG: 3.7 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 22
Lou is instant offense off the bench and although he is declining because of his age, he still makes a difference when he hits the floor.
Daniel Theis: PPG: 9.4 RPG: 5.1 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.1 PFP: 24
Theis is a great shooter at the big-man position and plays a vital role in the Celtics lineup. He has eclipsed the 15 points+ marks in the last two games.
Tristan Thompson: PPG: 7.6 RPG: 8.5 TPG: 0.9 PFP: 20
Serge Ibaka: PPG: 11.5 RPG: 6.8 BPG: 1.2 PFP: 22
