LAL vs HOU Dream11 Prediction, NBA Playoffs: Houston Rockets made a late comeback in game-4. They cut the 23-point deficit to just five points in the fourth quarter, but the charge came too late, and the Lakers were able to withstand Rockets' momentarily intensity.
After that defeat, there's no time for caution for Mike D'Antoni and his team, as this is game-5. They have to win it or the season is over. Prematurely. At least no one expected a team boasting James Harden and Russell Westbrook to bow out of the playoffs in five games. The Game-5 will be played at AdventHealth Arena, in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday morning (IST).
LAL vs HOU Dream 11 Prediction: Three quarters were enough for Los Angeles Lakers to see out Houston Rockets in game-4. The Showtime now has a 3-1 advantage and only a game away from making their appearance in the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2009-10 season.

LeBron James: The King is not giving away his crown easily. Even at 35, he is dominating the game as he used to, and showing hunger of a rookie. In fact, the former Cleveland Cavaliers superstar is in NBA MVP conversation and could win the coveted NBA finals MVP for the fourth time in his career. He is a no-brainer in any Dream11 Basketball fantasy basketball match.

Rebounds Per Game: 10.2
Assists Per Game: 9.0
Steals Per Game: 1.4

Anthony Davis: He is proving too big a hurdle for the opponents. Davis has been producing monstrous performances in the NBA playoffs. His presence in the paint can put off any opponent. He is an elite defender and a top-notch offensive player as well.

Rebounds Per Game: 10.9
Assists Per Game: 4.1
Steals Per Game: 1.2
Blocks Per Game: 1.6
James Harden: The 2018 NBA MVP had one of his worst performance in the NBA finals. He scored only 21 points, went 2 off 11 from the field and scored only 1 three-pointer in six attempts. Those numbers don't do justice to Harden's immense talent. He is super-elite, but he has to be on the height of his powers if the Rockets are to force game-6.

Assists Per Game: 7.9
Steals Per Game: 1.5
Blocks Per Game: 0.8

A lot of factors pulled the Houston Rockets down in game-4. James Harden had a terrible game by his own lofty standards. He couldn't shoot effectively from the perimeter, and his ball distribution was also not up to the mark. Rockets' small-ball movement and the pick and roll play was thwarted by the Lakers. Rockets are now 1-3 in the series and know there's no room to make errors. This could be the final game of the season for Harden and Co. They have to bring their A-Game to the court against this Los Angeles Lakers team that is being seen as a potential champion. That said, Houston Rockets remain the underdog and we back the Lakers to win this game and wrap up the series.
