LAC vs PHI Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for LA Clippers vs Philadelphia 76ers

Share

LAC vs PHI Dream11: NBA move towards the postseason window and this has to be the worst time for a team to hit a losing streak because from here on, the window to recover the record just keeps collapsing. Even if you enter the postseason in this shape, the rhythm can be off against teams that are especially at higher ranks or are coming in with a much better rhythm. And when we talk about the mid-tier teams, this is especially a crucial time. And the Los Angeles Clippers have lost their steam a bit and they will take on a loaded opponent in the Philadelphia 76ers during this battle.

The Clippers have been hit with multiple injuries and they are playing without their superstars. They have done a great job of holding on to the eighth spot. On the other hand, their opponents in this game, the Philadelphia 76ers have been dipping in enough wins to remain in play for the top spot in the East and are having a huge shot at the title with the duo of Embiid and Harden.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Roster complexion

The 76ers are featuring a three-guard, big Forward, and Center lineup. Tyrese Maxey and Harden are the scoring guards where Harden performs the job of being the leading playmaker, and someone who can also dip in 20 points or more regularly. Maxey is also a key scorer, who can get around 15 or so regularly. On the other hand, Matisse Thybulle acts as a perimeter defender and he has a big role in containing high-scoring guards or wings of the other teams. Meanwhile, Embiid is of course the definition of the 76ers in the middle with his ability to score at a high clip, lead the team in rebounding while also giving great defense. Tobias Harris at the Power Forward is also vital as an additional scoring option and a scorer. Niang off the bench can be a sharpshooting wing but apart from him, there is a lack of scoring.

On the other hand, the LA Clippers are fielding a two-guard, a wing, a big Forward, and a Center lineup, which is the traditional model. Reggie Jackson as a PG handles the majority of the ball-handling duties and when he is hot, the Clippers are likely but when he isn’t shooting well, the Clippers’ game falls off. Amir Coffey, Terance Mann, and Luke Kennard share the off-guard minutes and among these three, Mann is the most versatile option, Kennard is a sharpshooting option while Coffey can chip in with a few points. The big Forward duties are shared by Robert Covington and Nicolas Batum, both defensive-oriented players. At wing, Marcus Morris has presented decent scoring while Ivica Zubac in the middle is having a mixed season.
