Clippers vs Rockets Fantasy NBA: The Clippers will enter the game after beating the Suns in a game where Paul George scored 33 points. Meanwhile, the Rockets will come into the game after beating the Mavericks behind an impressive 31 points outburst by John Wall. More about LAC vs HOU Dream11 will be given 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 has a lot to prove 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. This team should not be taken lightly as he does has decent depth after acquiring Rondo. They are 3rd in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.
Rockets’ season: Houston has broken up their roster and will be in the rebuild mode sans the James Harden era. They shipped Victor Oladipo and with their main players in John Wall and Eric Gordon constantly out, their makeshift roster is dependent upon Christian Wood and role players. The Rockets are the second-worst team in the Western Conference.

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. The Claw is averaging 8.8 RPG for the last 5 games. He can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA setup.
George started the season red-hot scoring-wise but has cooled down since March. However, he performs an important defensive role, and his ability to defend always makes him a threatening presence. He has gotten some of his early-season rhythms back, scoring more than 30 points twice in a row and averaging 1.6 SPG for the last 5 games.
Wood has had a breakout season but his exploits have gone unnoticed because of the state of the roster and a large number of trades. He got injured around midseason but has averaged 19.3 PPG and 8.5 RPG ever since he has come from the injury.
Kelly’s role has increased in Houston and so has his minutes. He has found a rhythm with the increased playing time and he is averaging an impressive 17.4 PPG, 7.0 RPG, and 3.0 APG ever since he has donned the Rockets jersey.
Marcus Morris Sr.: PPG: 12.5 RPG: 4.0 PFP: 26
Marcus has supplemented great offense for the Clippers and they look for him to pick up the overall scoring. He has given Clippers depth and now has earned the starting spot.
Kevin Porter Jr.: PPG: 15.5 APG: 5.9 RPG: 3.6 TPG: 2.9 PFP: 32
Porter Jr. has been a revelation amidst a chaotic season for the Rockets. The guard’s ability to score and assist makes him a piece for the future and despite having some rough edges, he is a terrific talent at 20 years of age.
Ivica Zubac: PPG: 8.6 RPG: 7.2 PFP: 24
Zubac has stepped up his game with Ibaka out and he has given top-notch rebounding and shot-blocking since March.
Reggie Jackson: PPG: 9.7 PFP: 26
Jae’Sean Tate: PPG: 10.8 RPG: 5.4 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 22
PG: R Jackson, S Brown
