MEM vs GSW Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Memphis Grizzlies vs Golden State Warriors

Share

MEM vs GSW Dream11: The Western Conference battle is reaching its concluding stages and while the Grizzlies are now in the knockout mode as they are down one three. The Warriors are most likely heading to the West Finals and with Ja Morant out of the fray for the Grizzlies, things look grim for them. And in this game, the home team Memphis Grizzlies will host the Golden State Warriors.

The Grizzlies lost the last game 98:101 as Stephen Curry got hot late and sunk in a bunch of free throws to give his team a decisive lead. The Grizzlies will be at home without Ja Morant but they still have a lot of fight in them as they showed in the last game. However, against the turned on Warriors and without Morant, things are looking grim for Memphis. Will they bounce back here?

Host: Memphis Grizzlies
Visitors: Golden State Warriors

Match Timing: 12 May, @ 07:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Fed Ex Forum

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

One last fight from Memphis?

Grizzlies look like a much more balanced team in absence of Ja Morant but the trouble is that Desmond Bane has been unable to get going so far. He is yet to hit the 20 points mark and he has been rather taking fewer shots than average. Jaren Jackson has been inefficient and the incredible defensive frontline of the Warriors has been closing in on him rather way too much. Meanwhile, Tyus Jones did an incredible job taking the keys of the team in absence of Morant.

The Warriors have done a great job on the defensive end and the Grizzlies’ three-point shooting continues to be misguided in the series. The thing is that at least one among Poole or Curry have sealed the deal for the team and Klay Thompson has been off but he still keeps defenses busy through his perennial threat. Meanwhile, Andrew Wiggins continues to be an effective option on both ends of the floor.

The question the Grizzlies will need to answer is if they can find Bane to get going and seriously, I have started to wonder if keeping Adams out of the lineup is such a great decision after all. On the other hand, they will need more from Dillon Brooks who has struggled rather way too much. So, how will the Grizzlies respond in this knockout game for them?

Tyus Jones(MEM)
Points: 19
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 05

Blocks: 01
Jones made 8/18 in the last game and he has also done a great job as a playmaker too whenever Ja Morant has been gone. I believe he will be in 14-21 points, 5-8 assists, and 4-6 rebounds range. He can be chosen as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-59

Stephen Curry(GSW)
Points: 32
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 08
Steals: 01
Curry made 10 of his 25 shots in the last game but he was the one who dealt most of the damage in the last quarter. I believe he will be in 27-34 points, 5-9 assists, and 3-5 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 32-44

Jaren Jackson Jr(MEM)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 00
Blocks: 05

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-44

Desmond Bane(MEM)
Points: 08
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 06

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-30

Jordan Poole(GSW)
Points: 14
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 05
Guard Jordan shot just 4/12 from the field in the last game but he has become a lot more than a scorer at this point. I believe he will be in 21-28 points, 4-7 rebounds/assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-33

Draymond Green(GSW)
Points: 02
Rebounds: 11

  • Klay Thompson(GSW) had 14 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal in the last game. Two-guard Thompson couldn’t even make one of his seven triples in the last game but he is a huge presence in multiple areas. I believe he will be in 16-22 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 2-4 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-36
