GSW vs BOS Dream11: The NBA season is in its concluding stages and we have seen an amazing season as expected. Teams that were ousted earlier are now looking for ways to shore up their reserves as the offseason has already begun from there. But the battle is pretty much on for the two remaining teams in the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics will test each other.
This has been an amazing series and after losing Game 3, the Warriors continued to rely upon Stephen Curry, who nailed 43 points and made sure that things are in place. The Celtics have beaten the Warriors once on their home floor and they have the penchant to turn it on when playing on the road. Can they continue such resistance away from home?
Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Boston Celtics
Match Timing: 14 June, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Chase Center
Contain Curry, win the game!
The Celtics’ defense has had no answer for Stephen Curry so far and that has been the single biggest issue so far. The interesting part is that Curry doesn’t care about double/triple teams and simply attacks the hedges and using his incredible dribbling skills and a quick shot, he manages to get off his shots early too. And when he gets going, almost no one has an answer for his prowess.
Then the Celtics’ leading scorer Jayson Tatum has struggled a lot. He hasn’t been efficient and has also turned the ball over quite a bit. But despite his struggles, he is able to contribute in other ways. However, that surely has stalled the Celtics’ scheme because their backcourt has rather done well. Brown and Smart are amazing as the two guards while Horford and Williams have been reliable defenders and rebounders but more has been needed from Horford offensively.

*Stats from last game for both teams*
Tatum has struggled massively in this series in terms of scoring but he is also an incredible rebounder, defender, and playmaker. I belive he will be in 21-28 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 4-6 assists range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 42-52
Curry continues to raze defenses and his ability to take over games has enabled the Warriors to stay afloat. I believe he is going to be in 26-31 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 4-7 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-56
Jaylen has helped the Celtics to get this far in the Playoffs and his scoring and defense both are of a premium level. I believe he will be in 19-25 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42
Two-Guard Klay is an incredible shooter and has found his shot in the last two match-ups while also giving quality defense. I believe he will be in 19-25 points and 2-4 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-37
Defensive Player of the Year Smart has done a great job on the offensive end and his play has been huge in numerous ways. I believe he will be in 12-16 points, 4-7 assists, and 3-5 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-40
Andrew is an incredible defensive player and he has also taken his rebounding to another level while also acting as a consistent scorer. I believe he will be in 14-19 points, 6-11 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-44
