GSW vs IND Dream11: Now that the NBA midseason has arrived, the challenge can escalate for various rosters as the exhaustion can catch up to many teams and some can fall off the radar. However, some teams have not set up a consistent rhythm and you can feel that they will have such trajectory all season long but who knows, it is sports, you never know when the team chemistry clicks and they get it together. Still, the management of many teams must be figuring out ways to bring different players in and crafting certain trades. In this game, the Golden State Warriors will meet the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers management may be exploring options aggressively in the trade market.

Warriors have lodged 32 wins and 12 losses but have lost half of their last ten games and they have struggled this month the most. The team has been hurt on both ends quite often with Draymond Green gone due to an injury. Still, with Curry, Klay, and co. you feel the team can figure it out sooner than later.

For the Pacers, this has been a turbulent season from the word go. They have fallen way behind the 50% win mark and their 16 wins and 29 losses mark sums up their season. Yes, they did beat the Lakers 111-106 in the last game but overall, it has been a huge struggle for the team. That is why I mentioned that the team may be figuring way to trade away some players.

Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Indiana Pacers
Match Timing: 21 January, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Chase Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Warriors: A lot of options to make another big run
See, I know Curry has caught a bit of heat for not shooting well since December. But hey, if you observe, the guard puts a lot of effort on the defensive end and that takes out the rhythm for him. Well, Klay Thompson did score 20+ in the last game but I believe Kerr will figure out a way to accommodate Poole in this lineup because his scoring has fallen after he has been given a bench role. For me, the Curry-Poole-Wiggins-Porter-Looney lineup had its own perks but yes if Klay gets going, well, he can negate a lot of problems. The Warriors still have a pretty nice guard-wing lineup and with Porter Jr., Iguodala, Poole, Curry, Thompson, Payton II, Wiggins in the lineup, you can find a lot of isolation scoring, off-the-ball cuts, superb defense, and a lot of energy on both ends of the floor. I think the Warriors have a huge chance of notching 80% wins in the upcoming window because they play next six games at home and see, this team has had a tough schedule earlier that has made their run impressive. I am of the full belief that the Warriors can get back to their winning ways.

Pacers: What is their future?
The Pacers have four wins and 17 losses away from home, they have been unable to win games this season and I’ll tell you why. Earlier in the season, the team lost a bunch of close games and I am sure when you start losing too many close ones, it can take a lot of rhythms away from the overall effort. See, even with LeVert and Sabonis playing superbly, the team has been unable to compile wins, perhaps inserting Duarte in the bench lineup was an effort to rev up the bench production but that change hasn’t panned out well. In this particular game, they can be tested on both ends, and with their tendency to give away advantage early, the Warriors can savor it on the home floor. This is why I wonder what is the future of the current Pacers lineup? I think there is a high chance the team will pull some trades in the near future.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Domantas Sabonis(IND)
Points: 20
Rebounds: 12
Assists: 10
Blocks: 01
Domantas is one of the best all-around Power Forwards in the league and yes, with Turner gone, his responsibility increases even further to seal the boards and also on defense. The big Forward has scored in the 17-21 points, grabbed 9-15 rebounds, and has dished 6-10 assists per game regularly. Sabonis can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-48

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 18
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 08
Steals: 03
Curry has been lighting it up from long-range and his scoring prowess along with his playmaking abilities and will to defend make him one of the best players in the league. Steph’s scoring is down these days but a 25+ points night production is no surprise while grabbing 3-6 rebounds and dish 5+ assists regularly.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-45

Caris LeVert(IND)
Points: 30
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 02
Steals: 01
Caris has been doing an exceptional job as a scorer this season and keeps on impressing with his scoring chops now almost every season. Caris has dipped in 26-30 points in three of the last five games but I feel the Warriors defense will limit him to 16-20 points. He can also grab 5+ rebounds and dish 4+ assists regularly per game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-40

Klay Thompson(GSW)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 04
Steals: 02
Klay rang 20+ points in the last game and this can spell a return to form after a two years+ layoff due to an injury. If Thompson can score in the 19-25 points range, that will serve the Warriors well on the offensive end.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-36

Malcolm Brogdon(IND)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 06
Steals: 01

Brogdon has been a superb all-around guard for the Pacers again this season but injuries have derailed him a little as he keeps going in and out of the lineup. Brogdon can be expected to score 12-19 points with the current lack of rhythm.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-34

Andrew Wiggins(GSW)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 01
Steals: 03
Blocks: 01
Wiggins is one of the best wings in the league not only because of his scoring but also his highly improved defense over the years. Andrew has been scoring in the 17-23 points range consistently this season and he can expand further every now and then.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-41

GSW vs IND DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Chris Duarte(IND) had 11 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Duarte usually scores 10+ points and grabs around 3 boards a game, his production has fallen a bit after he has been relegated to a bench role.
  • Kevon Looney(GSW) had 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. Looney has been a big-time rebounder recently and with Green out, his workload has increased on him quite a bit. Kevon can clinch 10-12 rebounds a game these days.
  • Jonathan Kuminga(GSW) had 12 points, 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Kuminga has scored 10+ points in three games straight now and the big can get more minutes with Green out. Can he sustain the current rhythm?
  • Torrey Craig(IND) had 5 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks in the last game. Well, you don’t know what to expect from Craig, he has had no stable scoring, rebounding, or assists range, so he has been a rather risky pick.
  • Oshae Brisset(IND) had 5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Oshae has been scoring 5-7 points and grabs 2-6 rebounds a game.
  • Otto Porter Jr.(GSW) had 4 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists in the last game. Otto has been scoring in the 6-9 points range while grabbing 4-6 rebounds a game regularly.
  • Nemanja Bjelica(GSW) had 8 points, 7 rebounds, 1 steal in the last contest. Bjelica has been in this range usually.
  • Gary Payton II(GSW) had 5 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist in the last contest. Gary has seen his minutes reduced since Klay has been in the starting lineup. Is this his production limit?
  • Jordan Poole(GSW) had 5 points, 3 assists, 1 rebound in the last contest. It is unfortunate that Poole’s minutes will dip with Klay’s return, the guard will now struggle to sustain the earlier 16-22 points range on a regular basis.
  • Jeremy Lamb(IND) had 5 points, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Jeremy’s scoring has fallen from 8-13 to 4-7 points these days.
