DAL vs GSW Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Dallas Mavericks vs Golden State Warriors

Share

DAL vs GSW Dream11: The NBA Playoffs are here and we are in full flow as the season is about to disappear. There is no doubt that finishing in the top four is crucial in the Regular Season as the top four teams on either side of the Conference made it to the Conference Semis. And from there, fates can change as the third and fourth-seeded Golden State Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks will clash here as the Mavericks host the Warriors.

The Warriors have taken a two-nil lead in the Conference Finals so far and they have turned on the switch on both ends. They won the last game 126:117 as Stephen Curry rolled 32 points and outmatched Luka Doncic who nailed 42 points. The Mavericks have had a taste of erasing a nil-two deficit against the Suns, so they will be in play, however, there is no doubt that this is a must-win game for them. Can they get back to their winning ways?

Host: Dallas Mavericks
Visitors: Golden State Warriors

Match Timing: 23 May, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: American Airlines Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

The Mavs are tough at home, The Warriors looked clocked-in

The Mavericks have lost two in a row but this is the game they can’t afford to lose at all. Mavs are amazing at their home-floor and didn’t allow the Suns to go past 101 in the three games that were played at American Airlines. The main reason is that their defense is completely dialled-in and they have an incredible wing and Forward combination alongside pesky guards that can seal both the paint and the perimter.

But can the Mavs really repeat the miracle from the last series? I am sceptical because Warriors look tougher in terms of depth and are blessed with four shot-creators in the form of Curry, Poole, Thompson, and Wiggins, all also effective on the defensive end, especially Thompson and Wiggins. Kevon Looney has taken advantage of a thinned-down Center rotation of the Mavs and he was the key to force a comeback in the last game.

Doncic had 42 in the last game and he will be again suiting up for a big night on the home floor. On the other hand, Jalen Brunson is always cooking at home and he had 31 in the last game. The trouble will be that Klay Thompson is due a big night and he has been efficient but can be waiting for a big night here to seal the deal. Let us see how the Mavs respond to the Warriors challenge and maybe Warriors can end the hot stretch of the Mavs at home.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Luka Doncic(DAL)
Points: 42
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 08

Steals: 03
Blocks: 01
Luka made 12 of his 23 shots in the last game and clicked 13 free-throws meaning he is in incredible rhythm. He will be in for a big night and I think he will be in 30+ points, 6-9 assists, and 5-9 rebounds range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 51-67

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 32
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 05
We are in the zone where Curry unlocks his best and he clicked on six of ten threes which spells doom for the Mavs to be honest. I expect a 25-31 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 4-8 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-48

Jalen Brunson(DAL)
Points: 31
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 05
Guard Jalen made 11 of his 19 shots and he is in incredible form in the Playoffs, and can he help the Mavs close out the Warriors here in a virtual must-win scenario. I believe he will be in 20-26 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42

Klay Thompson(GSW)
Points: 15
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 05
Off-Guard Thompson made six of his ten shots and he has been a bit conservative with his shot-selection which can mean that he is up for a big night here. I believe he will be in 22-28 points range here.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-39

Reggie Bullock(DAL)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 02
Wing Bullock is on fire when the game is on the Mavs’ home floor so he can replicate last game’s hereos. I believe he will be in 13-18 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-30

Jordan Poole(GSW)
Points: 23
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 05
Steals: 02
Blocks: 01

Poole made seven of his ten shots and forms the most deep backcourt in the league alongside Thompson and Curry. I believe he will be in 20-26 points and 4-7 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-41

GSW vs DAL DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Spencer Dinwiddie(DAL) had 4 points, 4 assists, 1 rebound, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game. Guard Dinwiddie is inconsistent and he will need to be more productive here. I expect a 8-13 points and 3-5 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-23
  • Andrew Wiggins(GSW) had 16 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. Wing Andrew made five of his 14 shots but it is his defense that has garnered highlights. I believe he will be in 14-19 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-43
  • Dorian Finney-Smith(DAL) had 10 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block in the last game. Power Forward Dorian is an effective defender and he can be huge on offense on the home floor. I believe he will be in 12-17 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33
  • Kevon Looney(GSW) had 21 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Looney has been an incredible inside scorer and rebounder, who changed the game in Warriors favor during last game’s third quarter. I expect a 10-15 points and 9-13 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-36
  • Maxi Kleber(DAL) had 3 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 2 blocks, 1 steal in the last game. Stretch-Four Kleber is a brilliant defensive player but has been a bit quiet on the offensive end. I believe he will be in 7-12 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Dwight Powell(DAL) had 2 rebounds in the last game. Dwight’s minutes have reduced significantly.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 2-10
  • Otto Porter Jr.(GSW) had 11 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. Wing Porter has been an incredible rebounder and defender. I believe he will be in 8-14 points and 4-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-23
  • Davis Bertans(DAL) had 6 points, 2 rebounds in the last game. I believe he will be in 3-12 points range.
