Players to watch out for: (Captain options)

Portland Trail Blazers:

@USA Today


Damian Lillard –
Rather subdued performances from him in this series, which has come as a big shock considering how he has been playing of late. Warriors’ two players strategy on him has certainly got the better of him, but he is too good a player to not have a weapon for that cage.

Expect him to come good here:

Here are his seaosn stats, which shows that he is the Blazers’ best player on any given day:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 25.8 (11th on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) 26.8 (5th best in the playoffs)
    Against Golden State Warriors 28.3
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 6.9 (17th best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 6.3 (Current 10th best in the playoffs)
    Against Golden State Warriors – 6.5
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 4.6 (138th on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 4.8 (64th on the list)

Points earned in the last five games: 36.2, 45, 25.8, 45, 41.1

Golden State Warriors:

@USA Today


Stephen Curry –
The greatest shooter of all time is back to his best. Warriors were labelled as dead and buried when Kevin Durant left the court with an injury, but his absence saw Curry’s re-emergence.

If you are looking for a star player for thie particular game, you may not need to look further than Curry. Take a look at his numbers in the last four games:

Points: 36, 37, 36, 33
All Game-high numbers.

While his regular season stats are as follows:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 27.3 (6th best this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 26.7 (6th best in the playoffs)
    Against Portland Trail Blazers – 28.7
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 5.2 (37th best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 5.3 (14th best in the playoffs)
    Against Portland Trail Blazers – 5.7
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 5.3(97th on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 5.9 (46th best)

Points earned in the last five games: 42.7, 52.6, 55.7, 42, 36.7

Portland Trail Blazers Team News:

  • Portland was cruising along as Enes Kanter was having a blast until the Golden State Warriors showed up. Now his absence can be felt as Blazers are trying new combo to get the best out of their players.
  • Meyers Leonard started the last game with Kanter’s time being restricted to just 17 minutes. The former could be given another start here after his unexpected show in the last match.

Golden State Warriors Team News:

@Twitter
  • Kevin Durant is still not fully recovered from the calf injury he suffered in Game-5 against Houston Rockets. The two-time NBA finals MVP will be watching the game from the treatment room.
  • Another big name player on Warriors’ injury list is DeMarcus Cousins. The league’s true big man has been out since suffering a thigh injury in Game-2 against the Los Angeles Clippers.
  • Another possible absentee for the Dubs could be the old-guard Andre Iguodala who seemed to suffer a calf injury in the last match. He will be monitored before the match.

GSW vs POR Dream11 Teams (Starting Lineup; Probables):

  • Portland Trail Blazers: Maurice Harkless (F), Al-Farouq Aminu (F), Meyers Leonard (C), Damian Lillard (G), CJ McCollum (G)
  • Golden State Warriors: Draymond Green (F), Andre Iguodala (F), Damian Jones / Kevon Looney (C), Stephen Curry (G), Klay Thompson (G)

———————————————————————————————–

From the bench (Probables):

  • Portland Trail Blazers: Seth Curry, Zach Collins, Rodney Hood, Evan Turner, Enes Kanter
  • Golden State Warriors: Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston, Jonas Jerebko, Alfonzo McKinnie, Quinn Cook, Jordan Bell, Andrew Bogut

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Golden State Warriors’ defence was impeccable in the second half of Game-3. For a reason, this Warriors team seem to be playing more as a unit in the absence of Kevin Durant. We back the Dubs to kill this series in this match.
