GSW vs POR Dream11 Team Prediction Basketball, NBA Regular Season, Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trailblazers, 4 January

GSW VS POR Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: GSW vs POR Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: The Trailblazers steamrolled the Golden State Warriors in the first match-up of the season. The Warriors‘ lack of depth was clearly visible in this game against Portland. GSW looked out of sorts even after acquiring the services of Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson‘s injury has affected the scoring output of the team overall. Stephen Curry has been burdened with the scoring duties and he will need to contribute more for his team to enter the playoff picture. For the Trailblazers, the team effort was on full display in their last game, and Carmelo Anthony‘s 18 points are an indication that he has not only accepted the bench role but is thriving in it so far. This game will be a revenge game for the GSW as they will look to find answers from the current roster.

GSW vs POR Dream11 Match Prediction

The Trailblazers struck a hard blow to the Warriors in their last match-up and GSW will be hungry to get a win. For GSW, they need more from the likes of Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre Jr. to even reach close to the Trailblazers. The deficiency of a guard like Klay was in full display during their blowout loss and a lot of squad combinations need to be tried out by Steve Kerr to attain some stability. For Blazers, despite their win, they will need to capitalize on the Center position and Jusuf Nurkic should see more inclusion in this guard-heavy offense of the Trailblazers.

Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trailblazers, Key Players:
C.J. McCollum
PPG: 28.0
APG: 5.8
SPG: 1.6
McCollum has been the scoring leader for the Blazers and has made it easier on Damian Lillard. He is shooting 45.6% from the 3-pt line and has even been also improving at the defensive end. He lodged 28 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists, and 3 steals in the outing versus the Warriors, and it will not be a surprise if he replicates these performances throughout the season. His incredible scoring makes C.J. an interesting Super-Player pick in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball match-up.
Stephen Curry
PPG: 26.5
SPG: 1.4
APG: 6.6
So far Steph has only shot 32.1% from long range, and it is due to the fact that without Klay the perimeter converges on him as he becomes the sole focus. Hence, his efficiency has been brought and Steph has to work a lot to generate high-scoring output. He is coming off 26 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. Stephen will need to add to his scoring totals to achieve some wins, and he will need help from his teammates, especially Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, and Kelly Oubre Jr.
Damian Lillard
PPG: 25.2
APG: 6.6
RPG: 4.4
After having a tough time from the long-range in the first few games, Dame Dolla showed his chops by hitting 6 out of the 10 threes in the game against the Warriors. He has gotten back to form in this game and if he continues in this trajectory then the Blazers fan will become more comfortable. He notched incredible numbers against Portland, with 34 points, 8 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1 steal. Trailblazers fans will hope that he regains the touch of the preceding seasons so that Trailblazers can proceed further.
Andrew Wiggins
PPG: 17.2
RPG: 5.6
BPG: 1.4
Wiggins is playing the role of a secondary scorer in absence of Klay Thompson and there is no doubt that he will need to step-up consistently to help the Warriors gain some cohesion. He is coming off 15 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, and 2 blocks performance against the Portland Trailblazers and his services play an immense role for the Warriors at this juncture.

Sleeper picks:
Enes Kanter: Kanter has played an important role off the bench for the Portland Trailblazers so far. He is averaging an impressive 1o.2 PPG and 8.6 RPG. He posted 5 points and 2 rebounds in his last game because he only got 11 minutes of playing time.
James Wiseman: The first-year big man has been a sweet surprise for the Golden State Warriors so far. He is averaging 11.6 PPG and 5.6 RPG so far and has played a crucial role at the Center position.
Jusuf Nurkic: The Bosnian big man has had trouble scoring this season and his averages are down. He is coming off 8 points and 8 rebounds outing against the Warriors.
NoteCarmelo Anthony registered 18 points and 5 rebounds in the win against the Warriors.
Anfernee Simmons got 11 points and 6 rebounds in the win against the Warriors.
