PHI vs GSW Dream11: With each game, we see a number of absentees and missing players, but that kind of stuff doesn’t bother some of the teams who are built-in deep. One such team in Golden State Warriors will visit the Philadelphia 76ers. Warriors have one of the best records in the league with 21 wins and four losses while the 76ers are just two games above the 50% win mark.
Philly is a team that relies heavily upon the services of Center Joel Embiid. With Ben Simmons absent for all season and on the trade block, the team has lacked a substantial playmaker. Still, Philly started the season on a prolific note, but a three-week absence of Joel Embiid made the squad lose a ton of momentum.
Warriors are emerging as one of the earliest contenders for the NBA championship this season. The improved play of Poole has been one of the reasons for this team’s ascent while Curry continues to be an MVP-level player. The Warriors are one of the deepest teams in the league and have done so much without their superstar Klay Thompson and rookie standout James Wiseman.
Host: Philadelphia 76ers
Visitors: Golden State Warriors
Match Timing: 12 December, @ 07:00 AM
Venue: Wells Fargo Arena
NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
76ers: What is the team missing?
One thing is clear that this Philly team doesn’t have someone who can rain down 7-10 assists and be a Point guard type of player. Yes, Seth Curry has shown some playmaking abilities but Philly still needs an orchestrator. Joel has been a force, no doubt, while Harris and Curry can combine for 35-40 points but then 76ers start to look a bit think. Tyrese Maxey has come down to earth after skying for 25-30 points games earlier and perhaps, he needs to get back to his old ways. This is one of the reasons why the 76ers are more vulnerable in high-scoring games.
Warriors: They play elite on both ends
The trouble with playing against Golden State is that not only can the outfit score at a high clip but also hold down opponents. No team has scored 120 points against the team all season long and there are a lot of times when the Warriors have held teams in the 90-100 points range. With three high-scoring players in Curry, Poole, and Wiggins, the Warriors also have two stellar playmakers in Green and Curry. Meanwhile, bench players such as Otto Porter Jr, Gary Payton, Damion Lee, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Nemanja Bjelica, all have stepped up in different games. We can’t also neglect the huge contribution of Kevon Looney as a defensive force at the Center spot.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Curry continues to light up the league with his mind-boggling shooting. The guard has been on fire all season long and although his production is a bit down, he is the type of player who can go for as much as 50 points on his night.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-50
Joel is the heart and soul of this Sixers team and without him, their game plan falters. The high-quality Center can rein in as much as 40 points when he is on-song while grabbing 9-15 rebounds is a routine for him. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 47-66
If Steph Curry has been the MVP for many experts, Green is my pick as the defensive player of the Year for his ability to shut down multiple offensive players. And add 5-10 points, 8-12 rebounds, and 8-10 assists to that, well, how is he no less than an overall MVP!
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-41
Seth is a high-quality shooter and has added more tools to score in recent years. The guard has been scoring quite a bit in the 1`8-23 points range while handing over 3-7 assists regularly.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-42
Is it not Poole’s elevated gameplay that has made a huge difference for the Warriors this season on offense? Jordan has been dipping in 18-22 points on a regular basis.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-33
Tobias Harris(PHI )
Harris gives depth to an otherwise thing wing position for the 76ers and he is a solid scorer, defender, and rebounder. The Forward is expected to score around 16-20 points and grab 6-9 rebounds on a regular basis.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-36
