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

Share

GSW vs DAL Dream11: The NBA is heading into the final stages and we have been blessed with riveting battles after riveting battles in the Playoffs. The Eastern Conference Finals have been ugly and games between the Heat and the Celtics have been defensively-oriented recently, as the Celts have taken a three-two lead. In the Western Conference Finals, the offense has been more free-flowing, especially for the Golden State Warriors, who will host the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavericks have won only one out of the four games and are just one game away from being knocked out.  The sole win came in the last game as the Mavs clinched the 119:109 victory as the Mavericks pulled out their strongest game on the offensive end. The Warriors are yet to be beaten on their home floor and as they dive into Game 5, their confidence will still be sky-high. Can Mavericks break the Warriors’ home-court domination?

Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Dallas Mavericks

Match Timing: 27 May, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Chase Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Can the Mavs pull off a miracle?

The Mavs have made the matters complicated for themselves and despite winning Game 4, they have not looked switched on while playing defensive end. The trouble is that unlike the Suns, the Warriors have their wing and guard positions extract more production and it will be interesting to see how the Mavs defend the small-ball lineup of the Warriors, which has not been outmatched so far.

Luka Doncic continues to pour in big points and has led the Mavs in points for eight games straight while being an all-around factor as usual. The Mavs have also received great production from Jalen Brunson but the frontline of Kleber, Bullock, and Finney-Smith despite a strong Game 4, combining for 54 points, has been held to paltry production for most parts. On the other hand, Spencer Dinwiddie continues to be inconsistent but can act as an “X-Factor” here.

For the Warriors, there is an abundance of options, considering they have two elite shot creators in Poole and Curry while the off-ball play of Thompson despite being erratic is vital. Andrew Wiggins has been the trump card both as an offensive and defensive player. It will be interesting to see how the Mavs defense responds to the Warriors, a team that has yet to lose on the home floor.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Luka Doncic(DAL)
Points: 30
Rebounds: 14
Assists: 09

Blocks: 02
Steals: 02
PG Doncic continues to play like an MVP and he has been the major reason why the Mavs had made it this far. Apart from being a scorer, he is a tremendous rebounder and playmaker. I expect a 29-36 points, 10-14 rebounds, and 5-8 assists range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 48-63

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 20
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 08
Steals: 01

One-Guard Curry knocked down two of his five triples in the last game but he can do significantly more damage as a scorer while being a dependable playmaker and rebounder. I believe he will be in 27+ points, 5-8 assists, and 4-6 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-48

Jalen Brunson(DAL)
Points: 15
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 05
Blocks: 01
Brunson forms a strong scoring duo alongside Doncic and has gotten it done more often than not as an isolation scorer. I believe he will be in 17-23 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42

Klay Thompson(GSW)
Points: 12
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 01
Steals: 02
Shooting Guard Thompson is yet to score 20 in the series but he is surely be looking to end this series here with one of his special nights. I believe he will be in 18+ points and 4-6 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-39

Dorian Finney-Smith(DAL)
Points: 23
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 02
Although Dorian made 9/13 in the last game, mostly, he has been off his game especially away from home, but yes, he is more than an offensive player and brings elite defense. I expect a 8-14 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-27

Draymond Green(GSW)
Points: 10
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 06
Blocks: 02

Draymond is an elite defender whose playmaking and rebounding are impressive while even scoring has picked up. I expect a 8-14 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 5-8 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-41

GSW vs DAL DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Spencer Dinwiddie(DAL) had 10 points, 8 assists, 3 rebounds in the last game. Guard Spencer just made two of his seven shots but he is mostly an effective option as a scorer. I believe he will be in 7-13 points and 3-5 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33
  • Jordan Poole(GSW) had 14 points, 4 assists, 1 block in the last game. Point Guard Poole brings exceptional scoring off the bench and he can be a huge difference-maker. I expect a 16-22 points and 3-6 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-38
  • Maxi Kleber(DAL) had 13 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks in the last game. Maxi had his best game of the series but he is yet to have big impact on offense when playing on the Warriors’ home front. I expect a 8-14 points and 4-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Andrew Wiggins(GSW) had 13 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Wing Wiggins made five of his 11 shots in the last game and he has done much more as a defender and scorer. I believe he will be in 17-24 points, 4-8 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-39
  • Reggie Bullock(DAL) had 18 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Wing Bullock made six of his ten triple-attempts but he has struggled away from home. I believe he will be in 7-12 points and 3-5 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-25
  • Dwight Powell(DAL) had 1 rebound in the last game. Center Dwight hasn’t received many minutes. I expect a 0-4 points and 1-3 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 3-13
  • Kevon Looney(GSW) had 3 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block in the last game. Looney has been a menace on the boards and at home, he had some incredible games. I expect a 6-12 points, 6-10 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Frank Ntilikina(DAL) had 5 points, 1 assist, 1 rebound,  1 stealin the last game. Guard Frank has given some decent defensive minutes. I expect a 2-6 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 3-13
  • Jonathan Kuminga(GSW) had 17 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Forward Kuminga got 22 minutes in the last game but if Porter returns, I don’t see him playing many minutes.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 4-9
  • Davis Bertans(DAL) had 5 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Bertans can knock down some triples. I expect he will be in 4-7 points and 2-3 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 5-13
  • Moses Moody(GSW) had 10 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals in the last game. Moody’s minutes can take a hit if Porter returns.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
  • Otto Porter(GSW) missed the last game but if he plays, I expect a 6-12 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
