DEN vs POR Dream11 Match Prediction

DEN vs POR Dream11: Denver Nuggets will be looking to snap their three-game losing run when they host Portland Trail Blazers at Pepsi Center, in Denver, on Friday morning.

Form and recent results:

Nuggets' current run of three straight defeats is the worst streak for them this season. But all those three defeats came on a four-game road trip which started on a winning note with a one-sided 92-129 win over New York Knicks. Still, the Nuggets remain one of the true force in the West and are very hard to get over in home matches. They are 14-8 on the season, and 8-3 in home games this season.

Portland Trail Blazers snapped their two-game skid with a fine 115-87 win over New York Knicks. Damian Lillard topped the scoring charts with a game-high 31 points, while Hassan Whiteside ended with a double-double 17 points and 15 rebounds.

Fantasy Basketball – Head-to-head:

Dream11 Tips and Predictions: Fantasy Picks-

Damian Lillard: He is the focal point for the Blazers whenever they go out and attack opponents' rim. The 29-year-old is definitely a head-and-shoulder above than most of his peers, and surely the best amongst the players lining up for this game.

Points Per Game: 26.7
Rebounds Per Game: 4.6
Assists Per Game: 7.4
Steals Per Game: 1.0
Blocks Per Game: 0.5

CJ McCollum: If one player from the Blazers‘ roster who has the ability to outscore Lillard, it is McCollum. He is the only player other than Lillard for Blazers to average in the 20s this season.

Rebounds Per Game: 4.5
Assists Per Game: 3.8
Steals Per Game: 0.8

Game-changes from Blazers:

Carmelo Anthony: The superstar and the future Hall of Famer. He can be an absolute astute inclusion in your Dream11 team.
Hassan Whiteside: His two-way approach is what makes him an absolute must-have here.

Nikola Jokic: The Big Serbian is the biggest star on Denver Nuggets’ roster. He is phenomenal on both ends of the court. He can dominate the paint like no one else and is more than capable of dropping game-high numbers.
