GSW vs WAS Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Golden State Warriors vs Washington Wizards

Share

GSW vs WAS Dream11: The NBA is heading towards the Playoffs window and we are bound to see some intense battles as the league’s scenario is only heating up. The Western Conference has seen the Phoenix Suns keep on solidifying their top spot while in the East the race is pretty wide open. Anyway, let us jump into the game between the Golden State Warriors and the Washington Wizards

The Warriors have the third-best record in the league with the Grizzlies still within the grasp at the second place. Draymond Green will return in this game after a long time here and that is a huge gain indeed.

On the other hand, the Washington Wizards have lost the grip over their season and without Beal, the resources are running thin at this point. The team has been lagging behind in terms of Play-in tournament and seems like their race will be cut short after the regular season.

Host: Golden State Warriors
Visitors: Washington Wizards
Match Timing: 15 March, @ 07:30 AM
Venue: Chase Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Warriors will be boosted: The Warriors will receive their Power Forward Draymond Green after a long time. Not only does he provide top-notch defense and perhaps is the best all-position defender in the league, but he can also scoop up 7 or more rebounds on a regular basis and add 5+ assists playmaking to the mix. With Curry, Poole, and Thompson in the mix, you have three scorers who can put up a bunch of points and also move the ball around the perimeter. Andrew Wiggins at the wing position is a two-way presence and adds a further dimension to the team. Let us see if the team plays a three-guard lineup of Poole, Thompson, and Curry alongside Wiggins and Green, this will be a small-ball lineup that can be highly effective.

Wizards are falling behind: The Wizards have been falling behind on a daily basis and they have lost three in a row, which has put them behind the Hawks and the Hornets at this point. Porzingis’ return has bolstered the Center position and he can give scoring, defense, and rebounding. He and Kuzma can form a strong frontline while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has certainly done more than decent at the off-guard spot while clicking on long-range jumpers and doing a decent job as the defender. Corey Kispert and Rui Hachimura have given some solid minutes. The Wizards will need a seven/eight-game winning streak from here but it looks unlikely they will make it.
