IND vs GSW Dream11 Prediction NBA Live, Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Indiana Pacers vs Golden State Warriors

Share

IND vs GSW Dream11: Now, with COVID-19 sweeping the league and injuries also mounting up, the NBA scenario has become a complicated landscape. In this game, the Indiana Pacers host the Golden State Warriors in a cross-conference match-up. Pacers have won three in a row but are still four games below the 50% win mark while the Warriors have the second-best record in the league with 21 wins and five losses.
Indiana has a stacked roster and like the Hornets, they have a bunch of high-quality isolation scorers. Since last season, Pacers have not done well in terms of win column and that is because they have been able to seize key moments during many games. Indiana will need to pull up the socks to notch more wins.
Warriors have been prolific this season and they began the season on an excellent note. However, lately, their scoring has come down, and the biggest reason for that is Stephen Curry’s decreased shooting efficient since the last week or so. Still, the situation is far from alarming and you’d believe in Golden State to turn it around soon.

Host: Indiana Pacers
Visitors: Golden State Warriors

Match Timing: 14 December, @ 05:30 AM
Venue: Bankers Life Fieldhouse

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Pacers: There is huge potential
When you look at the Pacers roster, you can easily find a ton of high-yielding scorers. With Brogdon, Sabonis, and LeVert, you get 17-22 points on most nights. Chris Duarte and Myles Turner has pulled together 12-18 points on a regular basis. Indiana’s bench players like Oshae Brissett and Kelan Martin have been decent but without McConnell, that end is not as high producing. Still, Indiana has been playing some of the team’s best basketball lately and has won three in a row.

Warriors: Is there a concern?

During a 82-game per team game season, a lot of trends break and develop as well. Warriors didn’t score under 100 for around 20 games but in the last five-six games, they have figured under 100 twice and their scoring range recently has reduced from 110-120 points to 92-104 points, that is why there have been three losses in the last couple of weeks. One of the reasons has been Stephen Curry shooting around 35% or so, especially being off from the three-point line. Poole and Wiggins have been doing well but Stephen will need to resume his early November form to continue Warriors’ winning ways.
