In the first game of the set, the Clippers beat the Mavericks in a game where 7 of their players scored in double figures, thus producing a great team effort. More details about DAL vs LAC Dream11 will be related in this section.
Mavericks’ season: Dallas is 8th in the NBA standings for the Western Conference and has looked down and out at times, relying too much upon Luka Doncic. While Luka has been a monster this season, Porzingis has done well offensively too. However, Dallas displays a lack of alertness late in games which has made it difficult for them to have a more prolific record.
Clippers’ season: Clippers can be considered one of the contenders to challenge the Lakers as they present a team with a terrific blend of offensive and defensive players, who have experience and talent at many fronts. The challenge for the Clippers will be during the Playoffs where they fell short last year.

Doncic is having a stellar season and he has carried the load on the offensive end for his team, being their prime scorer and playmaker. He is also an exceptional rebounder, which means he is one of the most enticing All-Around Players in the League right now. Doncic is a prime candidate for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy league.
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.
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 4 games.
While his offense has been impressive, Kristaps has drawn criticism for his defense. Kristaps has had to switch positions and may be confused about his role at times, however, recently, he has been a better defensive player. Porzingis has scored 25+ points in two consecutive games. He has averaged 22.2 PPG, 10.0 RPG, and 1.8 BPG so far this month
Tim Hardaway Jr.: PPG: 16.3 RPG: 3.2 TPG: 0.9 PFP: 25
Hardaway produces great offense but his shifting role has not provided him stability. He has had to shuffle between starting and bench roles which have affected his efficiency a little.
Lou Williams: PPG: 12.4 APG: 3.6 TPG: 1.6 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.
Jalen Brunson: PPG: 12.8 RPG: 3.4 APG: 3.4 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 27
Jalen has been great this season off the bench and he has given his team depth at the guard position consistently. Brunson will be looking for more offensive opportunities after his improved play.
Dorian Finney-Smith: PPG: 8.2 RPG: 5.4 PFP: 16
Nicolas Batum: PPG: 8.9 RPG: 4.7 SPG: 1.2 PFP: 19
PG: T Mann, L Doncic(SP)
SG: K Leonard(PP), L Williams, J Brunson
SF: L Kennard
PF: M Kleber
