GSW vs LAC Dream11: 82 games for each team means that we are of course going to see a ton of surprises and we have to be prepared to get rattled when the favourites are downed by the bottom feeders. This is not to say that the top teams lose more often than not to the bottom feeders but this deep into the season, many teams have figured out their team chemistry and thus, upsets can spring up more often. Keeping that in mind, let us jump into the game between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Warriors have surprisingly lost five in a row and yes, sure the last loss against the Nuggets came because Thompson, Curry, and Wiggins were resting. However, even with those three players, the squad has been unable to collect wins and has been sliding lower in the rankings. Draymond has been rumored to return on 14 March.
On the other hand, the Clippers have been playing an inspirational brand of basketball, they did lose badly to the Knicks in the last game. However, if we have learned anything from the Clippers is that they have been able to bounce back time and time again. Hey, after all, they have managed to get over 50% win mark despite missing their two aces in Leonard and George and wing scorer Norman.
Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: LA Clippers
Match Timing: 9 March, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Chase Center
The Warriors have a considerable edge at the guard position with Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, and Jordan Poole, but one of these three has been ice cold from beyond the arc in one game or the other. I believe a three-guard lineup with Poole, Thompson, and Curry can be effective in the long run when Green returns. Thus a Curry-Poole-Thompson-Wiggins-Green can be a small ball lineup going ahead because there is no doubt that Green can go up against premier Centers in the league. First, the Warriors need him back.
On the other hand, the Clippers have been utilizing Reggie Jackson at the one-guard, someone who can dip in points and also make great passes. Marcus Morris has been the second-highest scorer alongside Reggie while Zubac has done a great job in sealing the paint. Terance Mann has shown some offensive improvements but the guard needs to do more on that end. With a defensive big Forward tandem of Robert Covington and Nicolas Batum along with Coffey, Hartenstein, and Kennard, the Clippers have a strong lineup on both ends.
