Rockets vs Clippers NBA Live: Houston Rockets will come into the game after losing to the Lakers despite 24 points performances by Kelly Olynyk and Armoni Brooks. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers will enter the affair beating the Hornets rallying around a 20 points outing by Paul George. More information about HOU vs LAC Dream11 will be given here.
Rockets’ season: Houston has been in tank mode ever since James Harden got traded and their injury list is off the charts. After enjoying a long period of Playoffs success, they are in the rebuilding mode, and now with just 2 games in the season, they will look ahead to the NBA Draft this year and hope they land a player around whom they can rebuild. Players like Kelly Olynyk have taken advantage of the available minutes and have carved out a substantial role with a flailing squad.
Clippers’ season: Los Angeles has been a dominating Regular season team for 10 years or so now but has not been able to make a deep Playoffs run yet. With Leonard and George, they do have a chance but the West is loaded with elite teams like Nuggets, Suns, Jazz, Lakers, Trailblazers, Mavericks, which means that it will not be smooth sailing from here on. Although they do have some terrific defensive players, it remains to be seen how far can they go after being seated at the 3rd spot in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.

Kelly Olynyk(Since joining Rockets)
Kelly was shipped to the Rockets in a mid-season trade and has been a major option on offense for a depleted and inexperienced squad. The veteran Forward has been in stellar form and has been averaging 22.4 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 7.2 APG, and 2 SPG for the last 5 games, which makes him a candidate for the Super-Player in Dream11 NBA scenario.
Leonard is playing through a foot injury and may be rested for this game, but the incredible Forward and two times NBA Finals MVP will be rearing to go in beast mode once the Playoffs begin. Although he is nursing an injury, at this point of the season almost all players are playing hurt because of a tenuous season, so watch out for him once the Playoffs begin.
Although he has only played 4 games this season, Khyri has shown amazing abilities in the period. With two games remaining in the season, he is basically auditioning to acquire a roster spot which he was granted just yesterday by the Rockets.
Marcus Morris Sr.:
Marcus Morris has improved his production with each month and has shown that he is a reliable third option on the starting unit who can supplement high-quality offense.
