GSW VS LAC Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: GSW vs LAC Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Warriors are looking in better rhythm since last two games, having overcome Sacramento Kings in a 30-points blowout win, a win where Stephen Curry scored 30 points and where Kelly Oubre also hit the mark with his 18 points performance. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers lost a close game against the San Antonio Spurs losing by a mere 3 points difference at their home floor. While the Warriors are relying upon Curry as a prime scorer, the Clippers have that duty divided between Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Unfortunately for the Clippers, Paul George will not play in the game against the Warriors, thus leaving the major load to Kawhi Leonard. For the Warriors, rookie James Wiseman has been a find and he has put up more than decent numbers for a Rookie. Warriors will have an advantage in absence of Paul George and since this showdown will take place at their Home Floor, they can notch a win against the depleted Los Angeles Clippers. This game will feature talents such as Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, and Draymond Green, thus it is a star-studded affair in the Western Conference scenario.

GSW vs LAC Dream11 Match Prediction
Warriors and Clippers will both play without their star Shooting Guards in Klay Thompson and Paul George respectively. The duel between Stephen Curry and Kawhi Leonard will highlight this match-up, where Curry will be mostly guarded by the defensive talent Patrick Beverley. For Clippers, Batum is coming off 21 points game and they will need a similar output from him against the Warriors. This game will also be decided by the Power Forward match-up of Serge Ibaka and Draymond Green, but overall, the Warriors will have the edge of playing at home. This game can swing the Warriors’ way considering the shooting form of Stephen Curry, but you can never discount a squad that consists of a two-way stalwart like Kawhi Leonard.
Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Clippers, Key Players:
The Splash brother Steph dropped 62 points just a few days ago against the Trailblazers. That performance has bolstered both his and his squad’s confidence because it means that he is again in his MVP-like form. He hit 30 points, 9 rebounds, and 8 assists in the game against the Kings, which helped his team, manage a win. He will be looking for more such outings and can be considered as a Super-Player pick for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up.
Kawhi has had a tough start to the season, more so because of the grueling face injury he had a couple of weeks ago. He is coming into his own, and considering everything, has still posted star-like statistics for the Los Angeles Clippers. He registered 30 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block in the loss against the Spurs. The Clippers will now rely upon him more as Paul George is a no-go for this match-up.
Wiggins has played as the second primary scorer for the Warriors and has performed his job decently. He has been helpful in decreasing the load on Stephen Curry, but more of the same will be needed until Klay comes back for the Warriors. He posted 16 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, and 1 block in the game against the Kings. He will need to bring that PPG range close to 20 for Warriors to succeed more.
Kelly Oubre Jr.
Kelly struggled in the first 2-3 games but is finding his role in his new team, and fortunately is slowly figuring out the set plays by his coach Steve Kerr. He can become a potent third-option as a scorer behind Wiggins and Curry to accentuate the Warriors’ chances this season. He registered 18 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal in the win against the Kings. He has now scored 17+ points in two consecutive games.
James Wiseman: The rookie Center is surely a factor while getting only 21.7 MPG as a start. In that limited time, he has managed 11.4 PPG and 6.1 RPG, being an important piece for the Warriors.
Serge Ibaka: Ibaka has been coming off two tough offensive games recently, scoring below 10 points in both of them. All said and done he is still a decent offensive player and is averaging 11.8 PPG and 6.1 RPG for the Clippers this season.
Eric Paschall: The second-year Forward has been a sweet surprise in his second season, and has now posted double-digit scores in 5 games on a trot. He is averaging 10.7 PPG and had 14 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 blocks in the win against the Kings.
James Wiseman leads the Warriors in blocks with 1.7 BPG.
Nicolas Batum leads the Clippers in rebounds with 6.1 RPG.
Lou Williams scored 15 points in the last game against the Spurs.
Luke Kennard has received significant playing time in the last two games and is coming off 9 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists performance against the Spurs.
