GSW VS CLE DREAM11 Team News:
Cleveland Cavaliers – This isn’t really an area of concern for Tyronn Lue as almost all the players are available for selection with only Chris Boucher set to miss this game due to a persistent ankle injury.
But what really makes Lue lose his sleep is the performance of his key players in the most critical of the time. This is the NBA finals and no stage is bigger for any Basketball player than playing in the finals. So it’s quite damning to watch so many big-name players in Cavaliers ranks underperforming.
Underperforming could be an understatement here as some seasoned players like J. R. Smith and Jeff Green are making some silly mistakes.
Golden State Warriors – Andre Iguodala hasn’t played in the NBA finals 2018 as of now and to be frank, he hasn’t been missed that much Kevon Looney has stepped up big time in his absence.
There are no other concerns in this department for Steve Kerr.
Expected Squad for the match:
Cleveland Cavaliers – Lebron James, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, George Hill, J. R. Smith, Jeff Green, Kyle Korver, Larry Nance, Jr., Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood, Cedi Osman, Jose Calderon, Ante Zizic
Golden State Warriors – Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, Kevon Looney, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala (questionable), Klay Thompson, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young, Quinn Cook, Patrick McCaw, Zaza Pachulia
GSW VS CLE Dream11 Playing Team:
- Forward – LeBron James, Kevin Love
- Center – Tristan Thompson
- Guard – George Hill, J. R. Smith
- Forward – Draymond Green, Kevin Durant
- Center – Andre Iguodala / Kevin Looney
- Guard – Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson
GSW VS CLE Dream11 players to watch out for:
Cleveland Cavaliers – Once again Cleveland Cavaliers’ all hopes will be resting on the best NBA players in LeBron James. The four-time NBA MVP is racking up points at an unbelievable rate in the post-season. While in the first game of this series, he scored 51 points and almost won the game for the Cavs singlehandedly.
Kevin love is another man in Cavaliers’ ranks who could come big on a Basketball court. One of the reasons why Cavaliers managed to beat the Warriors in the 2016 NBA finals was Kyrie Irving’s efforts which took a lot of pressure off James. Love must rise to the occasion and must deliver to win his 2nd NBA title.
Golden State Warriors – While LeBron James is already one of the best Basketball players of all time (if not the best), there is a long line of current crop of players who could claim to be the 2nd best active NBA player (only those who are currently playing). The likes of James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis are phenomenal players but Kevin Durant certainly looks a product for the great things. But he is yet to convince lot of pundits if he could be placed amongst the likes of James, Kobe, and Jordan, to name a few.
With his side facing a potential exit, this is perhaps the best opportunity for him since he joined Warriors that he is really the biggest name in Basketball behind only LeBron James.
Stephen Curry is not far behind. The two-times NBA MVP is a unique talent and is considered as the best ever shooter in NBA.
GSW VS CLE Dream11 Predictions:
Cleveland Cavaliers can’t afford to lose either of the two home games against Warriors. The Cavs must deliver at home or they are going to make the road to the NBA glory, even more, tougher for themselves.
We are backing a home win in this match.
