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 have 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. They are on a 6 game win streak.
Magic’s season: Magic is rebuilding right now and trading 3 of their starters in Vucevic, Fournier, and Gordon, which means that they will work on acquiring young talent. For the Magic, the team remains depleted on several fronts but has competed on both ends of the floor.

Projected Fantasy Points: 47
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. He is averaging 2.6 SPG this month. Leonard is the favored pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
PG-13 has seen improvement in his averages since last season and has looked to generate more wins for his team through his two-way chops. PG-13 has a point to prove this season and he is having a better season than the last one. He forms one of the best duos in the League alongside Kawhi Leonard. He has scored 24 points twice in a row.
Bacon has been in decent shooting touch for the Magic and his role increases with a host of the players traded and injured. He plays the SG position and will like to raise his FG% to at least 40. Magic will depend upon him to produce decent offense.
Michael Carter Williams
Carter Williams has not lived up to the hype he generated in his rookie year and has now relegated himself to a role player. But now with the top 4 scorers out for the Magic, he will get the ball more in his hands and a chance to generate offense.
Ivica Zubac: PPG: 8.6 RPG: 7.2 PFP: 28
Zubac has stepped up his game with Ibaka out and he has given top-notch rebounding and shot-blocking this month. He is averaging 9.8 PPG, 10 RPG, and 2 BPG for the last 5 games.
Marcus Morris: PPG: 12.7 RPG: 3.8 PFP: 20
Morris is a veteran shooter who supplies high-quality offense to the Clippers at the Forward position. He has gone past 20 points mark twice in the last 5 games.
Chuma Okeke: PPG: 5.7 RPG: 3.7 PFP: 20
The inexperienced Forward has risen through recently and has taken advantage of starting at the spot vacated by Aaron Gordon. He is averaging 17.7 PPG and 5 RPG since the last 3 games.
Terrence Ross: PPG: 16.0 RPG: 3.5 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 30
Terance Mann is averaging 15 PPG and 7.6 RPG for the last 5 games.
