Heartbreaks, triumphs, injuries, healing, etc. NBA is full of them all and it also has some of the best basketball talents to ever play.. In this game, George-led Los Angeles Clippers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. More about LAC vs CLE Dream11 such as injury report, stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
Clippers finally nailed a win through a blowout in the last game. The team has sorely missed Kawhi Leonard and Paul George has to take up the major scoring duties in his absence. The guard duo of Jackson and Bledsoe is formidable but is yet to attain scoring consistency. Meanwhile, Mann and Kennard have shown promise off the bench. With a depleted frontline, can the Clippers compete at a high level regularly?
Cleveland has been an enigma this season. The team beat the Nuggets in the last game and played some above-average defense. While Sexton has been up-and-down and Markkanen has struggled big time, bench players Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio has produced some winning performances. Darius Garland will look to improve upon his exploits. But the frontcourt has been impressive and looks deep with rookie Mobley and an emphatic Jarrett Allen in play.

*last game stats*
Paul George (LAC)
If George is not having a great offensive night, he can also get it done on defense as he did against the Trailblazers. He had 8 steals in the game. However, his fans need not worry, the superstar will explode for a huge offensive game sooner than later.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 52-72
Jarrett Allen (CLE)
Allen is coming off a huge rebounding game against Nuggets. He looks up for a 17-20 PPG and 9-11 RPG season this time around.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 33-43
Reggie Jackson (LAC)
Reggie is not in his full groove, shooting a low percentage so far. However, he will be a threat once again at the guard spot to keep the defenders busy.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 29-38
Kevin Love (CLE)
Former All-Star K Love made a case for playing more minutes in the last match. He scored 22 in just 21 minutes and led the team in scoring.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-35
Eric has done a decent job of handing over assists so far and he has been a factor so far.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-35

Sexton is usually the scoring leader for this team. He has not been a huge playmaker so far and fits into the two-guard role.

Kennard poured in a career-high 6 threes in the last game. He led the team in scoring and enabled a blowout win
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-32

Mobley has done a superb job in his rookie career so far. He has shown he can be both a reliable scorer and rebounder while blocking shots on the go.

Mann can have a big impact off the bench for the Clippers. He has been rebounding well and played some strong defense in the last match.
