GSW vs MEM Dream11: Now that we are heading into the climactic phase of most playoff series, the stakes are as high as possible. The Miami Heat is already through and within a two-three days period, we will know who will face who in the Conference Finals. And in this game, the Golden State Warriors will host the Memphis Grizzlies as they look to close out the series after garnering a three-two lead.

The Grizzlies dealt a huge blow in Game 5 as they closed out the Warriors 134:95 as the Grizzlies saw seven players hit double digits and had an incredibly balanced effort. The Warriors just need one win to advance but the Grizzlies may have put some doubts in their minds. Will the Grizzlies tie the series, or will the Warriors advance to the Conference Finals?

Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Memphis Grizzlies

Match Timing: 14 May, @ 07:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Are the Grizzlies more dominant without Morant?

The Grizzlies look like a much more balanced team on both ends of the floor. They pushed the Warriors to the brink in Game 4 and then had a 52-point lead heading into the fourth quarter during Game 5, both instances prove that the Grizzlies may be much more alert without Morant. The scoring balance proves that in the case of the last game.

Jaren Jackson, Tyus Jones, and Desmond Bane each scored 21 points in the last game and this was the first time that the Grizzlies had such balance. It seems like that with Morant, the team’s offensive progress is stalled and their defense has also looked a bit compromised, this is not just based on one or two games, when Ja was out, the Grizzlies won 20 and lost just five games.

For the Warriors, the last two games have not been their best especially on the offensive end. The trouble has been that the team has been outgunned from the three-point line. The Warriors are prone to go in isolation mode at times but they will still be confident at their home floor where they are yet to lose a game in the Playoffs. So, how will it be?

Jaren Jackson Jr(MEM)
Points: 21

Jordan Poole(GSW)
Points: 03

MEM vs GSW DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Steven Adams(MEM) had 7 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists in the last game. Adams has been a strong presence in the last two games after he had been taken out of the rotation in prior games. I believe he will be in 5-9 points and 8-13 rebounds range.
  • Klay Thompson(GSW) had 19 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Two-Guard Klay made seven of his 12 shots in the last game but he is an important presence overall. I believe he will be in 17-24 points range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-43
  • Dillon Brooks(MEM) had 12 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Wing Brooks has been a bit inconsistent offensively but is a strong defender nonetheless. I belive he will be in 11-15 points and 4-6 rebounds range.

    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 18-32

  • De’Anthony Melton(MEM) had 10 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game. Guard Melton’s minutes have increased compared to the last series. I believe he will be in 7-11 points, 3-5 assists, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
  • Kyle Anderson(MEM) had 9 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Anderson made four of his seven shots in the last game and he has been one of the most productive all-around players, however, his minutes are way down this season. I expect a 6-9 points and 3-6 assists/rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 18-27
  • Ziairie Williams(MEM) had 11 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Williams made two of his six three-point attempts in the last game and he has been doing a decent job recently. I expect a 8-13 points range here.
