The NBA Preseason has been giving a great practice time to the players before the real deal in the Regular Season. In this game, Los Angeles Clippers is going to take on Minnesota Timberwolves. More about LAC vs MIN Dream11 will be given below.
With Kawhi Leonard out of action due to a torn ACL, Paul George has held the fort well. Although the Clippers have lost two of the preseason games, these matches hold no value over the Regular Season trajectory. This year’s Clippers pick Brandon Boston Jr. has shown some promise but may not feature in the regular lineup( will head to the G League?).
Minnesota has a lot of talented players including last year’s draft stalwart Anthony Edwards. The Timberwolves have been frustrated by the lack of success and have squandered the young talent in the past year. Can Karl Anthony Towns and co. make it to the playoffs this season?

Luke Kennard has been nailing his threes in the Preseason
D’Angelo Russell can score and hand over assists too.
Reggie Jackson is a main part of the Clippers lineup. The guard was impressive last season and almost willed the Clippers to the Finals with Paul George in an incredible offensive showing. Can Reggie average around 15 PPG and give the Clippers consistent production again?
Karl Anthony Towns
Towns is an impressive Center and can rack up rebounds and points. Karl had a tough 2020-21 season dealing with grief due to his mother’s death. He will be on a mission this season and look to prove that he can carry the Wolves to the Postseason. He is an excellent option as the Super/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Terance exploded in the last season and showed the world that he can piece together winning performances. How will he perform this year? Can he consume 25-30 minutes per game?
Russell led the team in assists during the last season. D’Angelo is a highly talented offensive player and has a lovely shooting touch from way beyond the arc. Can he average around 20 PPG this season?
George is one of the best two-way players in the league. Forget the preseason, he will be key to the Clippers’ success in the Regular Season.
Edwards is an athletic player who was impressive during the last season. The sophomore will look to build upon his successful rookie year.
Hartenstein led the team in defensive rebounds with eight in the last match. He also led the team in blocks. But will he continue to receive substantial minutes in the Regular Season?
Naz is a budding Center who usually goes under the radar of experts. Reid is looking to build a special career and can play 20-25 minutes this season.
Kennard led the team in scoring during the last match. He is an effective three-point shooter and may be slated to play around 20 minutes this season.
Jarred led the team in rebounds during the last game. Can he find space for 20-25 minutes this season, bringing his physicality to the fore?
Has young Amir grown enough to earn 15-20 minutes per game this season?
Apart from Beverley, Josh may be the most talented perimeter defender for the Wolves. Can he play 20-25 minutes per game again this season?
