DET vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Portland Trail Blazers can move one step closer to the playoffs when they host Detroit Pistons in a regular season NBA match at Moda Center, in Portland, Oregon, United States, on Sunday morning (IST).

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 33 points and added another 12 assists to his incredible assist as Portland Trail Blazers continued their good run with a 126-118 win over Dallas Mavericks.

Lillard was quite vocal about the importance of the win against teams like Dallas who are struggling for form and consistency all season.

“As long as we have that right attitude and we do things the right way, I think we’ll keep getting this result when we play against teams we should beat,” Lillard said.

Seth Curry erupted for 20 points from the bench, while Enes Kanter dropped 14 points and racked up 10 assists as well.

With the win, Portland improved their record to 5-1 in the last six games and sit at 4th in the Western Conference with 44-27 record. The Blazers should qualify for the playoffs, but they are also looking to secure a home court advantage.

Detroit Pistons, meanwhile, returned to winning ways with a convincing 118-98 win over Phoenix Suns. They are sixth in the Eastern Conference, possessing a three-game advantage over 9th placed Orlando Magic.

With just 11 games remaining in the regular season, Dwane Casey’s men shouldn’t have any problem in securing a playoff berth.

Regular Season Record-
Portland Trail Blazers:
W-44, L-27
Detroit Pistons:
W-37, L-34

Players to watch out for:

Portland Trail Blazers:
Damian Lillard –
Portland wouldn’t have been here had it not for Damian Lillard’s incredible consistency this season. The 28-year-old is close to 30 points per game in the last 10 matches or so, which shows that he can touch any lofty height in his career. The 2012 round-one pick is averaging 26.3 points per game.

Jusuf Nurkic – With CJ McCollum out with a knee injury, somebody has to take on his role in the team. Though Jusuf Nurkic plays as a Center, the 24-year-old has a good amount of points in him.

Blake Griffin –
Pistons have their own superstar who is right up there with the best this season. The 30-year-old former Los Angeles Clippers star is racking up 24.6 points per game this season.
