While Western Conference has been known for the depth for many years but the Eastern Conference has managed to put together some tough squads this season. In this game, Western Conference team Dallas Mavericks clash against Eastern Conference squad Boston Celtics. More about DAL vs BOS Dream11 such as injury report, stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
Dallas Mavericks has been struggling at the offensive end at their 5-3 record is largely the team pulling the socks at the other end. The team is ranked 27th in Points per Game with around 101.1 and has scrapped out some close wins. Luka Doncic is the heart and soul of this team and keeps the offensive game flowing at all times.
The Celtics have struggled on the defensive side before their win against the Heat. The team finally played a complete defensive game and also got big on the board. Boston has a host of scorers with the trio of Dennis Schroder, Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown at one-to-three spot filling the scoring column while Al Horford can go big on scoring too.
These two teams have presented some troubles on both ends but have not shored out some issues related to depth. Celtics comparatively have a better depth at multiple positions but unlike Mavericks, they have been unable to close out games. Let us see if the Celtics can build upon the win against the Heat?

*last game stats*
Luka Doncic (DAL)
Once again Doncic is covering Dallas frailties on the offensive end and has kept their engine revving. The Guard has continued to be an all-around player and a major difference-maker on the offensive end. He has led the team in points, rebounds, and assists throughout the season, which is not a surprise.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 48-68
PPG: 23.9 RPG: 8.3 APG: 7.1 SPG: 1.0
Jalen Brunson (DAL)
Brunson has come up with two big games in a row now and has shown that he can fill the void in terms of scoring.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-42
PPG: 15.0 RPG: 5.3 APG: 4.3
Jayson is one of the most talented isolation scorers in the league. However, his shooting percentage has been at a low as he has gone for 37.3% only so far.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 29-40
PPG: 22.7 RPG: 8.1 APG: 3.4
Tim Hardaway (DAL)
Tim is clicking in terms of offense for the last few games and that has helped the Mavs’ cause for sure. Hardaway shot 3/9 from the three-point line and his return to form is indeed immense for the team.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33
PPG: 15.0 RPG: 3.4 SPG: 1.3
Horford is having an incredible season and has been scoring and lumping up boards at a brilliant rate. He is the leading rebounder for the team and has the potential to go for the double-doubles every night.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-37
PPG: 13.4 RPG: 10.1 APG: 3.3 BPG: 3.0 SPG:1.0
Dorian Finney-Smith (DAL)
Dorian is the defensive mainstay of the team. He can also scrap up periodical scoring, rebounding, and can also come up with the steals and blocks.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
PPG: 7.9 RPG: 5.6 SPG: 1.4
Robert Williams III (BOS)
Robert has been a factor on the defensive end and has also stacked up boards at a high clip. Williams has been especially impressive at rejecting shots.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-32
PPG: 10.5 RPG: 4.8 BPG: 2.1 SPG: 1.1
Dwight Powell (DAL)
Dwight Powell gives decent production at the Center spot and has at least made sure they get something from the frontline. Powell has done well at the defensive end too.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 11-19
PPG: 8.1 RPG: 4.6
Dennis has found his game on the offensive end recently. He is a starting-caliber guard(no doubt) but he is coming off the bench for the Celtics outfit.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-36
PPG: 13.3 APG: 6.0 RPG:3.9 SPG: 1.4
Boban Marjanovic (DAL)
Marjanovic is one of the tallest players to play in the NBA. As a result, he can shoot over defenders and pull down rebounds and blocks. However, he largely remains a defensive liability and that is why doesn’t play many minutes.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 07-25
