LAC vs PHX Dream11 Match Prediction

LAC vs PHX Dream11: Los Angeles Clippers will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Phoenix Suns in the NBA regular-season at Staples Center, on Wednesday morning. The Clippers lost 108-106 to Chicago Bulls in the last game, a result which ended their four-game winning run. That said, the Clippers remain 2nd in the Western Conference and are 20-8 on the season. They are 13-1 in home games but seemed to struggle against the teams from the same conference, as five of the 8 defeats have come against Western Conference teams. The Suns, on the other hand, also arrive in this game off a defeat as they lost 110-111 to Portland Trail Blazers in the last match.


Match details:

Teams: Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns
Venue: Staples Center
Match Timing: December 18, @ 09:00 AM


Key players:

Kawhi Leonard: Leads the scoring charts for the Clippers.
Paul George: All-Star. More than capable of outscoring Leonard an everybody else.
Devin Booker: Suns’ biggest star. The only player on the roster with an average in the 20s.
Ricky Rubio: Consistent and can be a difference-maker.


Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns team news:

Los Angeles Clippers: Kawhi Leonard is expected to play after missing the last match due to load management. But the Clippers will be without a host of first-team players in the shape of Lou Williams (calf injury), Patrick Beverley (concussion) and JaMychal Green (back injury).

Phoenix Suns team news: Devin Booker missed the last few games due to an arm injury, and remains on the team’s questionable list. Deandre Ayton returns from a 25-game ban and is expected to start the game.


Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns starting five:

Los Angeles Clippers: Maurice Harkless, Landry Shamet / Kawhi Leonard, Ivica Zubac, Paul George, Landry Shamet / Terance Mann

Phoenix Suns: Kelly Oubre Jr., Dario Saric, Frank Kaminsky, Devin Booker / Mikal Bridges, Ricky Rubio


Likely squads:

Los Angeles Clippers: Paul George, Landry Shamet, Kawhi Leonard, Ivica Zubac, Montrezl Harrell, Maurice Harkless, Terance Mann, Patrick Patterson, Jerome Robinson

Phoenix Suns: Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Jevon Carter, Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo, Tyler Johnson, Cameron Johnson, Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre Jr., Frank Kaminsky, Cheick Diallo, Dario Saric, Frank Kaminsky


LAC vs PHX Dream11 Grand League tips:

  • Kawhi Leonard sat out the last game due to rest purposes, Devin Booker missed the last two with injury, but if the duo plays, both of them, together with Paul George, can pop up with game-high numbers.
  • But for the small league, consider only Kawi Leonard. His two-way approach does guarantee a good return.
  • But for the Grand Leagues, George and Booker are worth considering.
  • Also worth considering is Deandre Ayton who returns from a 25-game ban.


LAC vs PHX Dream11 teams:

Team 1:

PG: R Rubio
SG: Leonard (SP), C Johnson
SF: P George, M Harkless, M Bridges

Team 2:
