HOU vs GSW Dream 11: Can the Warriors produce another shock against the Rockets?

Things haven’t gone all too well for the Houston Rockets since they traded for Russell Westbrook.

They might have two of the best one-on-one players in James Harden and Westbrook, but they are 4-3 since the start of the season.

Harden and Westbrook might be getting a lot of points, but they aren’t doing enough to keep the opposition from scoring.

The Golden State Warriors are in even deeper trouble this season. Kevin Durant left for the Brooklyn Nets, Klay Thompson is out for the entire season while Steph Curry has a broken hand.

However, the lack of star power didn’t stop them from defeating the Portland Trail Blazers 127-118.

The Warriors now travel to Houston, and it could be another huge scoring game.

Dream 11 Fantasy tips and predictions

The best way to describe the current Rockets would be inconsistent. They have the firepower to destroy most teams but just cannot string consecutive wins.

Harden and company defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in their previous game but lost to the Miami Heat before that.

They beat the Wizards 159-158 but were defeated by the Durant-less Nets in the game after that.

There shouldn’t be much expected from the Warriors who are devoid of star power. However, the lack of big names didn’t stop them from pulling off a miracle and defeating the Blazers.

Both teams seem to be in great scoring from and this Dream 11 match-up could see a load of points.

Point guards

Westbrook was rested against the Grizzlies (h/t NBA) but the former Oklahoma star should be back in the starting line-up for the Rockets.

He didn’t have a great game in the loss to the Heat, but could be back with a bang.

Ky Bowman was one of the surprise performers against the Blazers and scored 19 points.

He could do a similar job against the Rockets, and it will be interesting to see how the Warriors perform in this clash.

Shooting guards

The big players don’t really do much for either side at the moment, and Harden has to be selected for this game.

The Houston star record 44 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists in the win over the Grizzlies.

Harden should be joined by Jordan Poole and Damion Lee in this position as the pair scored 16 and 18 points respectively against the Blazers.

Small forwards

Omari Spellman is picked for this position to balance the credits out. The Warriors star scored seven points off the bench and could get some handy boards against the Rockets.

Power forwards

Eric Paschall was immense against the Blazers as he helped Golden State to an unlikely win.

The forward scored 34 points and ended the night with 13 rebounds. He will be one of the threats for the Warriors and could give the Rockets a lot of problems.

Centers

Clint Capela recorded a double-double in the win over the Grizzlies and should be the center for this game.
