GSW vs DEN Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets

Share

GSW vs DEN Dream11: The NBA Playoffs are in full flow and we have seen the Heat and the Celtics advance already. In the West, the Suns and the Grizzlies took a three-two lead as the top-two teams while the Mavericks have a three-two lead versus the Jazz. On the other hand, the Golden State Warriors have a three-one lead versus the Denver Nuggets as they look to close out the series.

The Warriors lost the last game 121:126 as Nikola Jokic scored a rapid-fire 37 points and Marcus Morris clicked on his five triples. The Warriors started slowly and that hampered their ability to come back late in the game. As the series goes back to the Warriors’ home court, the Nuggets will look for another dent but the Warriors still hold the major cards here.

Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Denver Nuggets
Match Timing: 28 April, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: Chase Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

The Warriors look to finish things

Monte Morris and Aaron Gordon scored 20 or more in the last game and they were led by Nikola Jokic who pumped in 37 points. The Nuggets shot an incredible 56% and they also clipped 48% of their three-pointers in the last game. The Warriors also made 50% of their shots but the Nuggets’ high-percentage shots.

The Warriors committed 15 turnovers while the Nuggets made 20 turnovers. Due to that, the Warriors had 13 more attempts at the basket. The Warriors clinched 15 steals and they will take that confidence into this game. The Nuggets have been vulnerable in the first four games and I believe the Warriors will close out the game.

Fantasy Related Tips

Nikola Jokic has scored 30+ in the last two games and his all-around production makes him the favorite as the ace in the Fantasy scenario. Apart from him, the rest of the players have struggled but Gordon has had two strong games in a row. The Nuggets have been inconsistent and only Jokic has been a reliable player.

For the Warriors, the top three options have been Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, and Klay Thompson. Andrew Wiggins has improved his scoring while he has also grabbed decent boards. Draymond Green is the most reliable all-around player and he has been also impressive on the defensive end for the Warriors but he will need to do more against Jokic
