LAC vs HOU Dream 11: Will the Clippers get revenge for their earlier loss to the Rockets?
Two of the NBA’s big hitters will face off again in a tasty duel. The Houston Rockets picked up an impressive win over the Los Angeles Clippers in their previous outing.
However, the Clippers now have a fit and healthy Paul George to play alongside Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard missed a few games due to a knee problem before returning to beat the Boston Celtics.
There was one funny incident between the Rockets and Clippers with Austin Rivers asking for his father (LA coach) Doc, to be thrown out by the officials.
The Rockets were on an incredible winning streak but saw that end against the Denver Nuggets in the last game.

Dream 11 Fantasy tips and predictions
The Clippers might have one of the strongest teams in the NBA, but they are still figuring out how to get the best out of everyone.
Fitting George and Leonard in the starting five isn’t a problem, but consistency has been the issue so far.
The Clippers sit 10-5 and should be better than that thanks to the plethora of talent on the bench.
Houston have their own issues with James Harden and Russell Westbrook doing well, but they are still susceptible to going cold in stretches which costs them wins.
This is a tough Dream 11 match-up given the sheer number of stars available to pick from, but here is a possible selection ahead of the big game.
Patrick Beverly might not score a lot of points but he always gets minutes for the Clippers.
He did record a double-double in the win over the Celtics and could score some decent points against the Rockets.
Chris Clemons might not be on everyone’s wish list but he gets some decent minutes from the bench and balances out the credits.
The bulk of the scoring would be done from this position, hopefully. Harden always gets a decent score, even if the team is struggling and he scored 27 in the loss to the Nuggets.
Lou Williams is an exceptional talent off the bench and he too recorded 27 points for the Clippers in his previous outing.
It is difficult to ignore two big stars in Westbrook and Leonard, however, George has been exceptional since coming back from his injury.
He scored 25 points in the win over the Celtics and should be picked for this clash.
JaMychal Green bagged 10 points and eight rebounds in the win over the Celtics and should be a decent option who doesn’t cost much.
Tyson Chandler is selected to keep a check on the credits spent. The former Dallas Mavericks star could also get some boards off the bench.
Montrezl Harrell didn’t sizzle in the win over the Celtics with just six points, but he could do bounceback against the Rockets.
It is tough to select who the star player could be but James Harden is a decent option given his tendency to keep hold of the ball.
This should be an incredible game with so much star power on both sides.
The Clippers should be slight favourites thanks to George’s form, however, Harden and Westbrook could do their thing at the Staples Center too.
