BOS vs WAS Dream 11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: BOS vs WAS Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Celtics are coming off a close win in the encounter against the Heat, in a game where Jayson Tatum top-scored with 27 points, and helped stave off the Heat in a tight match. For the Wizards, Bradley Beal posted 60 points and yet couldn’t overcome the threatening Philadelphia 76ers. The Wizards have had an extremely poor start to the season and have only won 2 out of their first 8 games, which is creating tension for their head coach Scott Brooks. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are on a three-game win streak and their squad is gelling well in pressure situations. The Wizards need more from players other than Bradley Beal and need to put defensive pressure on opponents as their defense has been porous and they have allowed opponents to run through them. For the Celtics, their confidence will be sky-high after their win streak, and the special part about the win streak is that they won all games away from home. Now they will face Wizards at the home, and with the increased confidence, can look to snag 4 games in a row.

BOS vs WAS Dream11 Match Prediction
Boston Celtics can suffer a blow if four of their players are not cleared to play because of health and safety protocols and if Teague is unable to participate. They will be extremely shorthanded but even the depleted Celts squad will have their dynamic duo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, with the defensive stalwart in Marcus Smart. For the Wizards, not having Westbrook can hurt their chances but if he is good to go then they can rely upon Russell and Bradley Beal. The Washington Wizards need more production from other players and need to really tighten their defense or Jayson Tatum and Brown will leave no stone unturned to open the floodgates and grab a win. This game can swing towards Boston considering their recent form.
Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards, Fantasy NBA Key Players:
Beal has carried the major load for the Wizards this season and has done all in his power to make sure that they get enough offense from the Shooting Guard position. He is averaging in excess of 30 PPG and has had a superstar-like season so far. He went nuts in the game against the Sixers and collected a humongous 60 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1 steal yet couldn’t bring a victory for the Wizards. These kinds of outputs can make him a selection for the Super-Player pick in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball showdown.
Jayson Tatum has kicked off the season on a prolific note and his offensive output has directly translated into wins for his squad. He has taken the mantle of the primary scorer and has received immense help from Jaylen Brown for this purpose. He is coming off 27 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 steal effort in the close win against the Heat and will look to continue his stellar season. He can be considered as a Pro-Player pick for this Fantasy showdown.
Jaylen has pretty much shared the role of a primary scorer with his young partner-in-crime Jayson Tatum. Both of the players have rallied frequently to get Boston to a victory and promise to be the most formidable duo in the League for the future. Brown posted 21 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals in the win against the Miami Heat.
The 23-year-old Center is carving a name for himself in this League and has improved offensively every year. His progression is promising, however, he needs to tighten screws up at the defensive end for Wizards to have assurance in that department. He is coming off 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 assist outing in the loss to the Sixers and was completely outplayed by Joel Embiid.
Marcus Smart: Smart is the defensive stopper for the Celtics and has done an amazing job so far this season. He is averaging 12.1 PPG, 6.6 APG, in addition to 1.5 SPG. He is coming off 9 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1 steal outing against Miami.
Rui Hachimura: Rui has had to deal with injuries early in the season and is still finding his rhythm after missing four games. Even then, the promising sophomore is averaging 12.8 PPG and 3.3 RPG. Surely, he will like to improve on that, especially on the rebounding. Rui posted 8 points and 2 rebounds in the loss to Philly.
Davis Bertans: The SF has averaged 11.8 PPG so far but has only shot 36% so far, an area where he will look to improve. He had a decent game against Philly gathering 17 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal.
Marcus Smart leads Celtics in assists with 6.6 APG
Ish Smith had 9 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists in the loss to Philly.
Payton Pritchard is averaging 8.3 PPG and 3.2 APG for the Celtics.
