GSW vs ORL Dream11: The world of NBA is not as predictable as you may think. For example, the Golden State Warriors lost their last game against the Spurs team which has an under 50% win record. In this game, the team hosts another team with a losing record in the form of the Orlando Magic.
The Warriors are the joint highest record holder with the Suns. The team has been on fire without Klay Thompson and rookie standout James Wiseman and the team’s depth has seen the Steve Kerr-led team through. Golden State offers a pesky defense and a high-yielding offense.
The Magic is rebuilding and has been performing as expected, having almost four times more losses than wins. Despite that, the backcourt of now injured Jalen Suggs and Cole Anthony holds a lot of offensive hope for this young team. With Franz Wagner, Wendell Carter, and Mo Bamba in the frontcourt, the team can eke out more than decent production on scoring and rebounding end. Once this core meshes and premier defender Jonathan Isaac returns, the team looks promising.

NBA Projections, Stats, & Analysis
Warriors: A couple of tough shooting nights for the Curry
Golden State has lost two of the last three games but is yet to lose two in a row. In those two losses, Steph Curry missed around three to four out of five shots consistently, shooting 25% or less. That has been a problem as Curry misfiring from three has derailed the offense a bit. However, during the last season, such windows will come especially for a Point Guard who is a volume shooter. Wiggins has been a little off too but he will get it together for sure. Despite the losses, the Warriors enter as the favorites during most contests.
Magic: Losses are fine, the team is young
Mostly, the Magic starting five is composed of players who are under 23 years old where Wagner and Suggs are rookies, Cole Anthony, Wendell Carter Jr., and Mo Bamba are also inexperienced. Basically, the Orland team is in rebuild mode and with Jonathan Isaac out, the defensive rotations are slow at times. Magic has trouble containing the team and gives away 110-125 points regularly and has lost some close games too. Still, wait and watch for the development, you never know if this is a solid foundation for a Playoff-centric team.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Cole Anthony (ORL)
Cole is a highly talented offensive player who makes this Magic team a better offensive unit. You can expect 20-25 points, 7-10 assists on a regular basis from the PG. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 39-48
Steph has shot 25% or below in two of the last three games and in both games, his teams ended up losing. Apart from that, the guard has not lost his high fantasy value in the slightest as stated by his last game numbers above.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-55
Wendell Carter Jr.(ORL)
Despite the flurry of losses, Carter Jr. has shown an improved rebounding and a high-quality output from inside the three-point like. You can expect 10-12 rebounds on most nights from him while he can also chip in with a decent amount of points too.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-42
Green is in the above scoring range during most nights and the numbers above are pretty much the reflection of his season average. Draymond is not a low-yielding player for sure in terms of fantasy value.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 33-48
Bamba is having a highly impressive season and the Center forms a formidable rebounding and scoring duo at the frontline with Wendell. Bamba can score in the 9-15 points, hoard 6-12 rebounds, and get his hands on 2-3 blocks and 1-2 steals every now on then.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-44
Poole is a highly effective shot-creator at virtually the off-guard position for the Warriors. He will get around 15-23 points range during most nights and has become the bedrock of this offensive scheme in low-shooting nights by Curry.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-32
