DEN vs GSW Dream11: The Playoffs are nearing with each day and with each day, each team will be held to a higher standard considering that the time to make a big run is collapsing and the teams will only get more under the pump to compensate in case of a failing record. Thus, this window in itself is like a Preview of the Playoffs because the higher the standing, the more confidence, and of course you also hoard the home court. So let us jump into the game between the Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors.
The Nuggets have been one of the top teams in the league and oh boy, are they clicking right now or what! The best part about their winning run has been that the team has been able to do without two of their key players in Murray and Porter Jr. With the news of these two returning before the Playoffs, the team is looking in prime shape to change the elite squads in the league.
On the other hand, the Warriors have been in a bit of bother recently, unable to get on winning streaks and they have lost five in a row. The team did win against the Clippers in the last game but the overall picture has been a struggle for the team lately. Now the team will get Draymond Green back in a couple of games, which means that the team’s defense will be bolstered.
Host: Denver Nuggets
Visitors: Golden State Warriors
Match Timing: 11 March, @ 08:30 AM

Recent trends and match-ups
Nuggets’ recent trends: The Nuggets have won 14 out of the last 16 games and this is a testament to the unwavering spirit of Nikola Jokic. In this spell, the Nuggets have won two against the Warriors but honestly, the Nuggets have done a great job of taking care of business during an easier schedule and a long home stretch, This is no way a knock on the Nuggets to say that they had easy but this is more of an appreciation because winning these many games imply that you’re ahead of the curve.
Warriors’ recent trends: The Warriors have slipped from the second to the third rank. Golden State has lost nine of their last twelve games, and this is surely due to not having Draymond Green. The team did go on a nine-game winning streak but most of the wins were at home but the team has lost the rhythm while playing away from home. The vocal leadership of Green is essential on both ends to get going when you are a long way away from home. Fortunately, for the Warriors, they will get Draymond Green back soon.
Match-ups: The Warriors are of course going to have their hands full against Nikola Jokic manning the Center position. On the other hand, the Warriors guard rotation is much deeper and with Curry, Thompson, and Poole, there are three terrific shot creators. If these three start clicking during some games, the Warriors will be back to their old winning ways. Wiggins is due a big game and if Will Barton plays, that is an interesting match-up. Kuminga can match up to Aaron Gordon off the bench at the big Forward position. In terms of the bench, the Warriors does appear deep and the overall complexion may suggest that the Warriors have the edge but they have been beaten by the Nuggets during all three meetings this season.
