Clippers vs Nuggets Fantasy NBA: The Los Angeles Clippers will come into this game after losing to the Suns despite 25 points and 10 rebounds outing by Paul George. On the other hand, the Denver Nuggets will enter the battle after beating the Raptors rallying around a 23 points outing by Michael Porter. More details about LAC vs DEN Dream11 will be given here.
Clippers’ season: The Clippers have played some impressive basketball this season but they have been a productive regular-season team for a long time. The duo of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard is in the hot seat and they are expected to do a lot in terms of both offense and defense, so an NBA championship is expected out of them. Los Angeles is 3rd in the NBA Standings for the Western Conference and their real test will come during the NBA Playoffs.
Nuggets’ season: Denver Nuggets lost Jamal Murray a few weeks ago due to an injury, but Michael Porter has become a major enforcer on the offensive end, filling Murray’s void to a substantial level. The play of Jokic has been commendable but the team does have some amazing players in Will Barton, Aaron Gordon, and Monte Morris. Nuggets are the 4th best team in the Western Conference and will be a formidable foe for any team during the Playoffs.

Jokic has had a record-breaking season and he is the engine that keeps the Nuggets ticking. His all-around offensive abilities allow him to be one of the most potent weapons and he is surely having an MVP-like campaign. Jokic is an excellent pick-up as the Super Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Porter’s career has been dampened by injuries but he has shown huge promises as a young player. He still has a lot of time left since he is only 22 and barring injuries, he can become an elite SF. He was at his peak in April, averaging 23.9 PPG.
PG-13 has weaved together an impressive season, scoring at a terrific rate and while continuing to be a reliable defensive player. His stats are better than the last season and he has given the Clippers a great boost at the SG position. He averaged an impressive 27.5 PPG and 7.4 RPG in April.
Ivica Zubac: PPG: 9.2 RPG: 7.3 PFP: 28
Zubac has stepped up his game with Ibaka out and he has given top-notch rebounding and shot-blocking this month. He averaged 10.8 PPG in April.
Aaron Gordon(Since joining Nuggets): PPG: 11.0 RPG: 4.9 TPG: 1.3
Gordon’s scoring isn’t at a premium since coming to Denver but he is still adjusting to the system. The Forward has given them depth so the Nuggets will still savor the production he is generating right now.
Terrence Mann: PPG: 6.1 RPG: 3.8 PFP: 26
The young guard has received more minutes in absence of Patrick Beverley and after Lou Williams was traded. He has made most of the minutes, averaging 12.6 PPG and 7.0 RPG for the last 5 games.
JaMychal Green: PPG: 8.3 RPG: 4.9 PFP: 15
Nicolas Batum: PPG: 8.2 RPG: 4.8 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 22
