LAC VS DAL Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: LAC vs DAL Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Clippers are looking in supreme form after their twin victories, while the Dallas Mavericks are coming off two losses in a row. The biggest reason for the two wins by the Clips is the performance of George who has had two solid outings in a row and is now averaging 28 PPG. Although early game trends can be deceptive, Paul is showing a lot of poise which is helping his team to begin on a winning note. On the other hand, Dallas is reeling without their big man Kristaps Porzingis, and their lack of depth has shown during the first two matches. While Kawhi Leonard will miss the action because of a grotesque face injury, the Clippers still remain a better-rounded roster than Mavericks.

LAC vs DAL Match Prediction
Clippers are a better squad than Mavs in terms of depth, experience, and at the most positions. They are a championship-caliber squad, while Dallas has a lot of struggle to face since their star big man Kristaps is out, and Luca doesn’t have a scoring machine to share the load. The Clippers have an edge over Mavericks because of their arsenal, and Mavericks would have to find scoring and defense from different areas to overcome the duo of Kawhi and Paul George.
Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks, Key Players:
Luka is in tremendous touch to begin the season, but unfortunately, the burden on him is way too high because Kristaps has been out and will remain out for at least a couple of more weeks. He is coming off 27 points, 4 rebounds, and 7 assists, and 1 block against the Los Angeles Lakers. He will look to continue the same numbers and that is what makes him the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up.
The claw was in a lot of pain after getting hit on his face and receiving 8 stitches as a result, he may not be able to play in this game. We don’t know how much it will affect his game, but his presence means an energy boost for his squad. He stacked up 21 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals in just 30 minutes of action during his outing against the Nuggets. He will look to replicate those monster numbers once he hit the floor against the Mavericks.
So far, George has outscored the Claw but that is just after 2 games, so we must not look too much into it. However, he has led his team in points twice in a row. He is coming off 23 points, 6 rebounds, and 9 assists while collecting 1 steal against the Nuggets. If Kawhi doesn’t display the same flare or isn’t cleared to play, then PG-13 will assume the major scoring duties and this may further accentuate his numbers.
Ibaka continues to be a consistent two-player in the NBA, and early season numbers are a representation of that. Ibaka has been shooting a very-high 68.6% from the field so far. He is coming off 15 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block in the game against the Denver Nuggets. Ibaka will continue to play an important role as the season rolls on for the Championship aspiring Clippers.
Josh Richardson: Josh has shared the scoring duties with Luka, and he has done a decent job at it so far. He is coming off 17 points and 2 steals in the game against the Denver Nuggets. Josh will have to do more to help the Mavericks win.
Lou Williams: Lou is an instant offense off the bench, but he needs to shoot more and get more touches for him to be his real self. He is coming off 8 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in his game against the Denver Nuggets. He is just scoring 9.5 PPG, but he will most likely improve those numbers as the season progresses.
Dorian-Finney Smith: The Forward is getting a lot of minutes courtesy of his defensive tools, but he has performed well, averaging 10.5 PPG, 5 RPG, and 2.5 SPG during his first two games.
Note- Trey Burke is coming off a 17 points game against the Denver Nuggets.
Nicolas Batum is coming off a double-double game, where he posted 13 points and 10 rebounds.
