Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Clippers starting five:
Denver Nuggets: Will Barton, Jerami Grant, Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Gary Harris
Los Angeles Clippers: Kawhi Leonard, Maurice Harkless, Ivica Zubac, Patrick Beverley, Landry Shamet


Grand League tips:

  • Paul George is out of the game, so Kawhi Leonard will most probably going to end the game as the leading scorer for the Clippers in this game. He is also more than capable of producing the game-high numbers. So it makes sense to make him the captain of our Dream11 Small League teams, and captain in at least three Grand League teams.
  • Then there is Nikola Jokic. The Big Serbian may have been inconsistent this season, but he is a superstar, a rare talent. So making him your captain in at least two teams look a good call.
  • Selecting all, the likes of Jamal Murray, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, will be difficult, but bench players such as Landry Shamet, Jerami Grant and Monte Morris can be a good call.


Likely squads:

Denver Nuggets: Nikola Jokić, Jamal Murray, Monte Morris, Gary Harris, Jerami Grant, Will Barton, Malik Beasley, Torrey Craig, Juan Hernangómez, Mason Plumlee, Michael Porter Jr.
Los Angeles Clippers: Kawhi Leonard, Patrick Beverley, Rodney McGruder, Ivica Zubac, Montrezl Harrell, Maurice Harkless, Landry Shamet, Terance Mann, Patrick Patterson, Jerome Robinson
