LAC vs NOP Dream11 Match Prediction
Clippers are a better squad than the Pelicans, both in terms of experience and their make-up. The Clippers have championship aspirations this year and have marched on to that path so far, however, the Pelicans have an energy-filled youth that can be tough to beat during some nights. The Pelicans will need to shut down both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to improve their chances, while the Clippers will have their hands full with the athletic and brutal Zion Williamson. Pelicans need more from Lonzo Ball and Eric Bledsoe if they are to collect some wins this season, and their defense needs to improve as well to hold off the offensive talents of the Los Angeles Clippers. It will not be a surprise if the Clippers win this contest because of their experience and talent, plus they are also playing on their home floor.
