*Stats from Regular season*
PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 49
Jokic continues to frustrate the defense of Trailblazers and has once again proven why he is the MVP candidate this year. He is the major scorer and playmaker for the team and in addition, supplies them terrific rebounding. However, in Game 4, Nikola’s contributions were limited to 16 points. Despite a poor showing in Game 4, he can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario for his overall work.
Lillard is one of the most elite players in the league and gives the Trailblazers regular scoring and more than decent playmaking. Damian has the capacity to take over games and has been a nightmare for the Nuggets guards to defend. After scoring in excess of 30 points in the first 3 games, Lillard struggled to leave an imprint in Game 4, shooting only 10% and scoring only 10 points while dishing 10 assists.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Ever since Murray has been down, Porter has become the second-option on offense and has performed his duties better than expected. The young forward is on the rise and he will grow further with the grueling experience playing against the Trailblazers. However, he had a terrible Game 4, garnering only 3 points.
CJ is one of the most underrated players in the league and has the potential to go for big scoring nights. He is an incredible driver, mid-range shooter, and long-range sniper which makes him an overall terrific scorer. CJ has scored 21 points in three games while 22 points in one of the games during the series.
Norman Powell(since joining Trailblazers): PPG: 17.0 RPG: 3.3 SPG: 1.3
TPG: 1.6 PFP: 36
Powell is a terrific option at the offensive end and gives the Trailblazers a lot of spice at the Forward position. Norman displayed his chops in Game 4, scooping up 29 points and leading all scorers.
Aaron Gordon(Since joining Nuggets): PPG: 10.2 RPG: 4.7 TPG: 1.2
While Gordon’s production has been down since he joined the Nuggets, his athleticism allows him to be an effective player night in and night out. He was great in the series before only scoring 6 points in Game 4.
Jusuf Nurkic: PPG: 11.5 RPG: 9.0 APG: 3.4 BPG: 1.1 SPG: 1.0
