Two teams led by superstars who are finding their feet at a crucial juncture in the early season. In this game, George-led Los Angeles Clippers take on Damian Lillard and Portland Trailblazers. More about LAC vs POR Dream11 such as injury report, season averages, last game stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.
George’s resilience and Clippers on steam
After a tough start to the season, the Clippers have won four in a row. What has changed? Batum has chipped in with strong games, Jackson is finding his game, Zubac has notched two double-doubles in a row. Mann and Kennard have been clinical off the bench while the team has defended well too. The Clippers won against Trailblazers in a game earlier, can they repeat it again?
Inconsistencies mark the Trailblazers
Portland has been inconsistent for the last couple of seasons, mostly due to defensive failure. With a high-octane backcourt of Lillard and McCollum, Powell at the wing, and Nurk in the middle, the team has a lot of firepower in terms of offense. However, Lillard has struggled a bit to start the season and the team has not shown much cohesion yet. Can Trailblazers discover the rhythm?

Paul George is a dream fantasy player and option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scheme.
Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic, and CJ McCollum are among the options.
*last game stats*
Paul George (LAC)
Paul has displayed his all-around game in full-flow with his partner-in-crime Kawhi Leonard out with injury. PG-13 continues to be one of the most effective two-way players and the league and his numbers speak volumes about his talent. Can he keep Clippers in the Playoffs race till Leonard returns?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-61
PPG: 27.0 RPG: 8.2 APG: 5.2 SPG: 2.7
Damian Lillard (POR)
After averaging around 30 PPG last season, we are yet to get served by a Damian special. However, it is coming and is in the works and the PG remains a stellar option. Damian has continued to be the primary playmaker for the team and once he gets in rhythm, the Trailblazers will surely win more games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-52
PPG: 18.5 APG: 8.5 RPG: 3.8
Reggie Jackson (LAC)
After initial struggles, Jackson has somehow tried to give immense offensive production to his team at the PG position. It is clear that he is a vital piece to this team’s success and his team relies upon him a lot.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 29-38
PPG: 17.0 APG: 4.3 RPG: 3.7
CJ has been among the elite scorers of the league for some years now. McCollum comes into the game after a 1/10 3-pt shooting night, however, he has the potential to bounce back from such outings.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-48
PPG: 22.1 RPG: 4.3 APG: 4.1 SPG: 1.1
Nicolas Batum (LAC)
Batum has come alive in the last four games and is averaging 15.5 PPG, 6.75 RPG, 1.7 SPG in the last four games. What has been the result of those games? Just wins!
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-35
PPG: 10.9 RPG: 6.4 SPG: 1.3
Nurkic’s production will translate into the Blazers’ success this season. The big is a double-double threat every night and has had a couple of strong rebounding games. Can Nurkic supply more such production?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-43
PPG: 11.5 RPG: 11.9 SPG: 1.6
Terance had a double-double in the last game. He has scored 17 or more points in the last three games. The bench player has been immense for the team in the last few game.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-33
PPG: 11.1 RPG: 5.8 SPG:1.1
Norman Powell (POR)
Powell was signed to a huge contract this season largely due to his scoring skillset. Powell fits well at the wing with the team and will perhaps average between 15-18 this season if he is healthy.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 21-30
Ivica Zubac (LAC)
Zubac has given a lot to the Clippers at the Center position. The big has scored 14 points each in the last two games and also pulled down 25 rebounds in those games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-34
PPG: 9.4 RPG: 7.1
Anfernee Simons (POR)
Anfernee has been huge off the bench for the Portland team and they will rely upon him to carry that role. Simons provide double-digit scoring off the bench.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 13-21
Luke Kennard (LAC)
Kennard has given the Clippers much-needed perimeter shooting. Luke has been an immense contributor for the team.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-27
PPG: 11.9 RPG: 3.2
