IND vs POR Dream11 Match Prediction

IND vs POR Dream11: Portland Trail Blazers will try to get back to winning ways when they kick start their three-game Eastern Conference away swing with a game against Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday morning (IST). The Balzers know they have to get rid of the inconsistency that has marred their season so far, for they are in real danger of missing out on the playoffs, something that a player of Damian Lillard's calibre doesn't deserve at all. But the good thing is that the two-and-a-half games deficit is very much bridgeable in 23 games. As things stand, they are 9th in the Western Conference with a 26-33 return on the season.

Dream11 Tips and Predictions: Fantasy Picks-
CJ McCollum: With Damian Lillard out due to an injury, McCollum is Portland's best hope in any game. He is more than capable of producing goods for the teams. He is in good form as well.

Points Per Game: 21.9
Rebounds Per Game: 4.0
Assists Per Game: 4.1
Steals Per Game: 0.7
Blocks Per Game: 0.7

Hassan Whiteside: Third-best offensive player on the team. But what makes him special and is his game, which makes an impact on both ends of the court. He should be in your Dream11 teams.

Points Per Game: 15.9
Rebounds Per Game: 14.2
Assists Per Game: 1.3
Steals Per Game: 0.4

Points Per Game: 15.5
Rebounds Per Game: 6.4
Assists Per Game: 1.5
Steals Per Game: 0.8
Blocks Per Game: 0.5

Points Per Game: 18.5
Rebounds Per Game: 3.8
Assists Per Game: 1.4
Steals Per Game: 1.2
