DAL vs GSW Dream11: The NBA 2021-2022 season is going to end soon and as we enter the final stages of the Conference Finals, a champion will be crowned in a matter of few weeks. In the East, matters are tied at two-each between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics. On the other hand, the Golden State Warriors have decimated the Dallas Mavericks, taking a three-nil lead. Can the Mavs make a historic comeback here?

The Warriors took the defense to another level and won Game 3 109:100 as Steph Curry lodged another 30+ points night while Andrew Wiggins clinched 27 points. The Mavs received another 40+ points night from Luka Doncic but it wasn’t enough twice in a row for this struggling Mavericks team. With the series under line, can the Mavericks’ athletes close the matters or will the series be done here?

Host: Dallas Mavericks
Visitors: Golden State Warriors

Match Timing: 25 May, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

The Warriors keep punishing the Mavs

The Mavs escaped after conceding a nil-two start to the Suns but the Warriors have punished the Mavericks after defeating them at home. The Mavs defense wasn’t as good as it needed to be in Game 3 and they were punished in a multitude of ways, they are yet to put together one of those special defensive performances so far in this series.

It is a surprise that the Mavs only scored 100 in the last considering Doncic had 42, Dinwiddie had 26, and Brunson had 20, making up 88 points, the rest of the team scoring a mere 12 points. This has been a huge problem for the Mavs this series as the Forward combination of Kleber, Bullock, and Finney-Smith has disappeared and the fear that the Mavs frontline can be outmatched has come to fruition. It seems like the Suns were a better match-up against the Warriors, but this is how it works.

The Warriors have found the best game of Andrew Wiggins in the Conference Finals and his remarkable offense and defense both have been huge factors. Steph is on fire, which is no surprise while Thompson is compensating for his poor percentages through the hard-nosed defense. Poole continues to be a huge factor whereas Looney has been the “X-Factor” and Draymond Green continues to be one of the best defenders in the league. The Warriors have a lot to offer on both ends.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Luka Doncic(DAL)
Points: 40
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 03

Blocks: 02
Steals: 01
One-Guard Doncic is the scoring leader and also the team leader of the Mavs but his 11/23 shooting night and 14 made free throws were not enough in the last game. I expect a 27+ points, 7+ rebounds, and 3+ assists 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: 31
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 11
Point Guard Curry made five of his ten threes and he has been a huge offensive option for major parts. I believe he will be in 27-34 points, 5-8 assists, and 4-7 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-56

Jalen Brunson(DAL)
Points: 20
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 03
Jalen has been a huge factor offensively and linked 7 of his 12 shots in the last game, giving great support to Doncic. I believe he will be in 18-24 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-35

Klay Thompson(GSW)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 03
Two-Guard Klay shot just 6/18 in the last game and his percentages have been rather down throughout the Postseason. I believe he will be in 17-24 points and 4-7 rebounds range here.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-39

Dorian Finney-Smith(DAL)
Points: 09
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 03
Power Forward Dorian is a terrific defender but his scoring has been down significantly over the last five games. I believe Dorian will be in 10-16 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 2-4 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-30

Andrew Wiggins(GSW)
Points: 27
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 03
Wing Andrew capitalized upon 11 of his 23 shots in the last game and he has been a huge factor as a rebounder and defender. I expect him to be in 17-23 points and 5-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-42

GSW vs DAL DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Spencer Dinwiddie(DAL) had 26 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Dinwiddie made four of his ten three-point attempts and he has been rather doing his part off the bench. I believe he will be in 14-19 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-28
  • Jordan Poole(GSW) had 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals in the last game. Point Guard Poole makes the Warriors the winning unit is right now and he is an explosive offensive player. I believe he will be in 14-19 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
  • Reggie Bullock(DAL) had 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals in the last game. Wing Bullock couldn’t even make one of his ten attempts and this hasn’t been the case when the Mavs play at home. I believe he will be recover and be in 8-14 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-24
  • Kevon Looney(GSW) had 9 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Center Kevon has been a force on the rebounding end and has made some terrific dunks. I believe he will be in 8-12 points and 8-13 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-28
  • Maxi Kleber(DAL) had 4 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Power Forward sharpshooter Maxi shot none of five in the last game and his offensive game has been completely off. I expect more here and him being in 6-12 points and 3-6 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Draymond Green(GSW) had 10 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game. Forward Green is an incredible defender and he is an all-around factor. I believe he will be in 6-12 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 5-8 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-36
  • Dwight Powell(DAL) had 3 points, 2 rebounds in the last game. Powell barely gets 10 minutes a game.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 2-10
  • Davis Bertans(DAL) had 2 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Forward Bertans made one of his three shots. I believe he will be in 3-7 points and 1-3 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 6-13
  • Moses Moody(GSW) had 1 point, 1 rebound, 1 assist in the last game. Rookie Moses can provide great defense and can get 10-15 minutes here as Otto Porter is DOUBTFUL. I believe he will be in 3-6 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 5-11
