LAC vs DAL Dream11: Western Conference has been highly competitive for many years. In this game, two Western Conference squads in Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks meet up against each other. Clippers have lost the two games after a hot period while Mavericks also come here in a two-game funk as their superstar PG Doncic missed those games.
Clippers are a veteran unit with Bledsoe-Jackson-George forming the PG-SF spots. The team has gone on a seven-game winning streak earlier in the month but has lost the last two games in an underwhelming fashion. On the other hand, the Dallas Mavericks boasts of Doncic-Hardaway-Brunson as the three guards who can score in isolation situations while Kristaps Porzingis has been stellar lately at the big Forward, how long can Dallas play like early in the season with a thin bench?

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Mavericks: Doncic missed in the late game
In their last two games without Luka, Dallas kept a lead till the end of the third quarter. However, the inability to close out games is what hurt them. It is clear that Doncic is the main scorer in crunch time and his value was realized twice in a row. Of course, someone who gives around 25 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists usually is a huge presence and Doncic is known for making late shots. Still, Dallas played some gritty basketball without him.
Clippers: Vulnerable at times
Los Angeles Clippers are susceptible to too much isolation basketball at times. If Reggie Jackson goes cold, it makes life difficult for George who has to then put up 25-30 shots. Bledsoe is not a constant double-digit scorer and Nicolas Batum is also pretty much the same in this regard. Los Angeles lost two games due to their offense and it is an area that sees struggle without Kawhi Leonard. Still, the Clippers are a veteran outfit and are likely to sort out their issues sooner than later.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Paul George(LAC )
Paul George leads the team in points, assists, rebounds, and steals during the season. He has mostly scored between 25-30 points but was cold in the last game, shooting 8/26. Still, he can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 50-69
Kristaps is proving his doubters and playing some of his best basketball if we take last season into the account as well. The big Forward has scored 21 or more in each of the last five games while pulling down a ton of rebounds.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-55
Reggie Jackson (LAC )
Reggie Jackson is having another fantastic season despite coming off a 2/11 shooting game in the last Clippers contest. The guard has routinely scored around 20 points each game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-34
Jalen Brunson (DAL)
Jalen has been dependable for the Mavericks this season. He has scored in the range of 17-20 points mostly this month. Without Luka, he handed over 19 assists in two games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40
Tim Hardaway Jr (DAL)
Tim is an exceptionally talented guard who has done a wonderful job of scoring between 15-20 points constantly this season. Although he’d like to shoot better than last game where he went for 7/21.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-31
Eric Bledsoe(LAC )
Bledsoe has done a decent job for the Clippers at the perimeter. The only issue is his inconsistent scoring as he has had many games scoring under 10 points.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33
