Clippers vs Hornets Fantasy NBA: The Los Angeles Clippers will come into this game after losing to the Mavericks despite a 28 points outing by Paul George. On the other hand, the Charlotte Hornets will hit the floor after losing to the Lakers despite a 26 points outing by LaMelo Ball. More details about LAC vs CHA Dream11 NBA will be related here.
Clippers’ season: The Clippers are having an outstanding season but their true test will come during the Playoffs. The duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have a lot of proving and they are expected to at least reach the NBA Finals this season. Clippers do have the defense and offensive output to compete but it remains to be seen whether they can outlast squads like Lakers or Jazz.
Hornets’ season: Hornets are not among the premium squads but they do have an enticing player in LaMelo Ball to build around. The team also has the veteran SF in Gordon Hayward and Terry Rozier has become an effective offensive player. Hornets will like to remain in the Playoffs hunt and they’d need to instill more confidence for that.

Leonard has been in superb form this season, and the multiple times NBA Finals MVP looks like he is on a mission. He has helped the Clippers secure their current ranking and continues to be perhaps the most intimidating offensive and defensive player, a rare combination in itself. He is also an excellent option as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
PG-13 has seen improvement in his averages since last season and has looked to generate more wins for his team through his two-way chops. PG-13 has a point to prove this season and he is having a better season than the last one. He forms one of the best duos in the League alongside Kawhi Leonard.
LaMelo has produced an interest in the Hornets and he may already be a better player than his brother Lonzo. Ball is a terrific player for someone aged only 19 and seems to have an All-star career in store for him. He has averaged 19.3 PPG and 1.6 SPG since the month started and is improving at an impressive rate every month.
Rozier can produce with the ball in his hands and shares primary scoring duties alongside Gordon Hayward. He has given his team a lot of impetus and the Hornets look like a formidable unit when he is on the song. Terry has averaged 1.4 SPG for the last 5 games.
P.J. Washington: PPG: 12.6 RPG: 6.3 SPG: 1.1 BPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.1
Washington is a well-equipped athletic Power Forward, who can score, rebound, assist, defend, and play a complete all-around role for his team consistently.
Lou Williams: PPG: 12.2 APG: 3.6 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 22
Lou is instant offense off the bench and although he is declining because of his age, he still makes a difference when he hits the floor.
Gordon Hayward: PPG: 20.4 RPG: 5.5 APG: 4.1 SPG: 1.4 TPG: 2.0
After having some injury-ridden seasons, Hayward has been superb and has made Charlotte his abode after signing a massive contract.
Nicolas Batum: PPG: 8.8 RPG: 4.7 SPG: 1.2 PFP: 21
Malik Monk: PPG: 12.7 RPG: 2.8 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 23
