PHI vs CLE Dream11 Prediction NBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Philadelphia 76ers vs Cleveland Cavaliers

Share

PHI vs CLE Dream11: NBA trade deadline has left and well, it has LEFT us with a bunch of different combinations. Many squads were active in the exchange of players and picks, making this one of the busiest trade periods in recent history. This is the way it can be during this window and well, we have become accustomed to this. So let us jump into the game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 76ers did make a big boom when they brought James Harden into the fray. Well, let us see how that pans out but it does address the need for a top-notch playmaker, long-range shooter, and someone who can score in bunches. The 76ers have a strong Center in Embiid who can make hay inside and also pound the board hard but yes, even with a solid core, the team lacks a solid bench.

On the other, the Cavaliers have been one of the best stories all season long and they also made a bang a few days ago. They brought in Caris LeVert, who slates in as the off-guard and can use his great dribbling abilities and finishing abilities to dip in drives. Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley form a brilliant frontline and with Garland at the helm, watch out for the Cavs!

Host: Philadelphia 76ers
Visitors: Cleveland Cavaliers

Match Timing: 13 February, @ 06:00 AM
Venue: Wells Fargo Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

76ers: Bolstered squad but how will it pan out
Joel Embiid keeps compounding inside points, going hard at the rebounds, and also conjures up different moves from high-post as well. He is an enforcer on both ends of the floor making him a high-quality two-way enforcer. When you pair such a high-yielding Center alongside a big-Forward Tobias Harris, who has been a great scorer, rebounder, and also gives brilliant defense. Tyrese Maxey at the guard position has done a great job in terms of becoming a more efficient scorer and the ceiling is high for this inspirational one-guard.

Adding James Harden gives the team multiple dimensions. He is one of the best passers in the league, and after having some inconsistencies scoring-wise, he may figure it out with a new system. But there can be a catch here, he has no experience playing with the current unit and it can cause imbalances on both ends of the floor so coach Doc Rivers will need to adjust accordingly. And if the team does adjust, they can set the league on fire, and even with a deepened Eastern Conference, they can be a force.

Cavaliers: Size up front and scoring at the backcourt
Pairing up Caris LeVert with Darius Garland seems like a smooth move as Garland can stretch it from outside through his great three-point shooting and solid perimeter game. Meanwhile, LeVert can use his dribbling abilities to drive inside and create further inside points. The combination can be a formidable one considering Garland is a terrific passer. Now when you look at Allen, who can score inside by creating space through his muscular frame and the diving game of Mobley, there is a great cohesion in the lineup all of a sudden.

Once Lauri Markkanen comes back, he will act as the floor stretcher through his brilliant three-point stroke and you can see how the Cavs can be both effective inside and outside. Then you bring in another diver in Cedi Osman and a perimeter threat in Kevin Love, the Cavaliers look a solid offensive squad. And talking about defense, the team has been one of the best with two Centers Mobley and Allen along with Okoro, Wade, Garland, Love, Osman, and Rondo.

Where to watch NBA Live Score?

Can you catch this game on an Indian-based platform? Unfortunately no, the contest is unavailable on the streaming platforms JIO TV and Voot, the two Indian designated services that showcase one game per day for Indian viewers. So, the best mode in my opinion is the NBA League Pass and by buying the annual subscription, you can plug into all live games, and well, if you can’t watch the live game, you can have the access to full game replay too. To know the scores, stats, and news, go to the official website of the NBA.
