LAC vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Los Angeles Clippers will look to snap their three-game losing streak when they host Portland Trail Blazers in an NBA match at Staples Center, in New York, on Tuesday morning (IST).

Los Angeles Clippers:
The Los Angeles Clippers are aiming to get their season back on track after Paul George inspired Oklahoma City Thunder beat them 110-104 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in the last game.

The former Indiana Pacers star dropped a game-high 33 points in the match to win for his team. It was the fourth time in the last seven games where Geroge scored more than 30 points in the match. His equally-talented partner Russell Westbrook ended with 13 points and 12 assists.

While for Clippers, Danilo Gallinari topped the scoring charts as he scored 28 points and 7 rebounds, while Tobias Harris had 22 points and 9 rebounds in the match. Montrezl Harrell led the charge from the bench, dropping 21 points in the match.

This was Clippers’ 3rd loss on the trot and 9th on the road this season. The good form they showed at the start of the season looks a thing of the past and the franchise needs to overturn the current bad phase to maintain a stronghold of the playoff positions.

Portland Trail Blazers:
Portland Trail Blazers snapped their two-game losing streak in a blistering fashion. Beating Toronto Raptors these days is an esoteric achievement and that’s what Blazers managed to do in the last match, winning 128-122 against the Eastern Conference leaders.

Damian Lillard dropped a team-high 24 points and led his teammates to a conference boosting win. All the Blazers’ players were up for the game and as many as eight players touched the double-digit mark in a near-perfect team display.

Twenty-one-year-old Zach Collins led the 2nd unit with his impressive 16 points show, while Evan Turner (12-points), Nik Stauskas (13 points) and Seth Curry (13 points) made telling contributions for the team.

With the win, Portland moved to 8th in the table, level on record with 6th placed Memphis Grizzlies.

Regular Season Record-

Los Angeles Clippers: W-17, L-12

Portland Trail Blazers: W-16, L-13

Players to watch out for:
Los Angeles Clippers:
Tobias Harris – The player with the most minutes for the Los Angeles Clippers on the court is also scoring most points per game for the team. Tobias Harris is averaging 20.9 points per game for the team.
Danilo Gallinari – A seasoned player and is into his 9th year as a professional Basketball player. The 30-year-old is in good from at the moment, taking his average to 19.0 points per game, which is 3 points per game more than his career average.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard – He is absolutely on fire. The 28-year-old is dropping insane numbers in some matches, and no wonder his season average is a staggering 26.9 points per game. If Portland are to go the distance, he is the key and the engine to take the team forward.
CJ McCollum – The only other player in Portland’s roster to rack up more than 20 points per game this season is McCollum. Together with Lillard, he is team’s biggest star and a key to Blazers’ overall success this season. The 27-year-old is averaging 21.7 points per game.
