GSW vs LAL Dream11 NBA Team Prediction – Fantasy Team News

By Anurag tyagi

Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors

Match Timing: April 05, 2019, @ 08:00 AM IST

NBA Regular Season
Venue – Staples Center
Capacity- 21,000


Los Angeles Lakers will be playing host to the mighty Golden State Warriors in a regular season NBA match at Staples Center, in Downtown Los Angeles, on Friday morning (IST).

Despite the Showtime done and dusted for the season, the players and the head coach can still achieve something from their remaining matches.

Luke Walton is certainly facing the heat these days, for failing to guide his team into the playoffs. Rumor has it that the former Lakers is certain to go once the season is over.

While few players are also fighting for their careers in Los Angeles. This is the time when the fringe players can enjoy substantial minutes on the court. A certain player who has gained a name for himself is JaVale Mcgee. From playing under minutes restriction to a vital cog in the last few weeks, the 31-year-old Center looks totally transformed these days. Not only he is collecting loose balls and rebounds, but he is scoring in bulks as well.

The last match though ended in a defeat for the shorthanded Lakers. With no LeBron, Kuzma, and Ingram, the Showtime lost 119-103 to Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

But this wasn’t just another match, and neither it was an umpteenth defeat for Lakers for there are many, still, this match will be remembered for ages.

Russell Westbrook had a triple-double, which these days feels familiar with the 2017 MVP. But it was special as he had 20 points, 21 assists, and 20 rebounds. This was just the second time in NBA history that a player has all the important 3s in the 20s, with Wilt Chamberlain the first man to do so.

Lakers are now 35-43 in the regular season and sit at 10th in the Western Conference.

While Golden State Warriors recorded a statement win as they beat Denver Nuggets 116-102 in a top of the table clash at Oracle Arena.

Billed as a possible conference final, the Dubs headed into the game with an aim to protect the home court advantage and boy they just did that by outplaying the 2nd best team in the West.

Warriors improved their season record to 53-24, improving their lead to 2 games over Nuggets.

Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Lakers:
W-35, L-43
Golden State Warriors:
W-53, L-24

Players to watch out for:

Los Angeles Lakers:
JaVale McGee –
It’s not only Lakers are already looking towards the next season, but JaVale McGee has the reasons to look at the future with optimism. Ever since his minutes increased on the court, the 31-year-old has taken his game to new heights. In the last 10 matches, he has averaged 16.7 points per game, along with 12.5 rebounds per game.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope –  The 26-year-old is in a very good form these days. He has scored at 19 points per game in the last 10 matches.

Golden State Warriors:

Stephen Curry – Arguably the best ever shooter the Basketball has ever witnessed. He is a two-time MVP and one of the biggest names in NBA. The 30-year-old is dropping a team-high 27.8 points per game this season. He wins almost 3 turnovers per game and is making 1,3 steals per game as well.

Kevin Durant – He was in a very good mood against Memphis Grizzlies as he scored 28 points in the match. But the biggest highlight of the match was in the fourth quarter where he scored 9 straight points for Warriors. It was Durant’s biggest score in nine games. He is averaging 26.8 points per game in the regular season.

Los Angeles Lakers:

Injured – For the hosts, the injury list is huge. LeBron James will sit out the rest of the season to recharge his batteries for the next season, while Brandon Ingram (shoulder injury) and Lonzo Ball (ankle injury) are out for the season as well.
Questionable Kyle Kuzma was expected to play against Oklahoma, but missed the action. He remains doubtful, while Tyson Chandler (illness) and Josh Hart (knee injury) will be evaluated before the match.
Suspended – None.

Golden State Warriors:
Injured –Warriros have a nearly full team these days. Steve Kerr has the luxury of calling upon all his big guns bar Damian Jones who remains on the sidelines due to a chest injury.
Questionable – None.
Suspended – None.

GSW vs LAL Dream11 Fantasy Team:


When the fixtures were revealed this was one of the biggest fixtures in the regular season. But it’s not at this moment and there are many factors; LeBron James’ absence and no prize for the Showtime.
A win for the Warriors is our call.
