Two teams with big dreams this season, from two different conferences, clash to heat up the NBA season. In this game, the Los Angeles Clippers fight it out versus Miami heat. More about LAC vs MIA Dream11 such as injury report, season averages, last game stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
Experience paying off for the Clippers
Clippers is a veteran unit. George is at the helm producing all-around efforts, Jackson has figured out his offensive game. But the biggest difference-maker has been Batum who has risen up his game all of a sudden. With bench players in Mann, Kennard, and Hartenstein, and Bledsoe finding his touch, the Clippers are well-blessed with experience and fire. Zubac has also done well to hold them for this team. Can they continue their five-game winning streak?
Have they set the template or work to be done?
Miami has begun in a rousing fashion despite losing the last two games. Heat has a guard-heavy line-up with Butler sliding to SF. Jimmy has had another All-Star to the season, Bam gives the lift in the middle but it is Herro’s 20+ PPG season that has bagged wins early. The team acquired Lowry and Tucker in the offseason, with the former bringing two-way energy and the latter being a clampdown defensive player. This Heat team can cause a lot of trouble but it remains to be seen if Butler will play here.
