He has steered the Nuggets to ascension this season and his past statistics in the Playoffs have been incredible. The big man was on fire in Game 1, contributing 34 points and 16 rebounds in the loss. For his contributions, he can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Lillard has been amazing at scoring the ball and is one of the most elite scorers in the League. Damian has the capacity to take over games and will be a nightmare for the Nuggets guards to defend. He is the central player in the offensive schemes of the Trailblazers. The Guard showed his versatile offensive skills in Game 1, collecting 34 points and 13 assists.

Michael will play an incredibly important role during this series. He did his part offensively, collecting 25 points and 9 rebounds.
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 make him an overall terrific scorer. The guard contributed 21 points and 6 rebounds in the win.
