LAL vs POR DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Portland Trail Blazers host Los Angeles Lakers in an NBA match at Moda Center, in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday morning (IST).

 

Portland Trail Blazers:

Portland Trail Blazers will move to within a game behind Golden State Warriors if they beat the Los Angeles Lakers in their next game.

In Western Conference where the fight to finish in the top 8 is intense, a win over you direct rival can be counted as two in the table. At the moment, the Blazers are a good three wins better than the Lakers. And after winning the last three, the momentum is certainly with the Moda Center side to move further in the standings.

Portland are on a three-game winning streak including a big 132-119 win over New Orleans Pelicans where Damian Lillard and Co bettered their stats of the season. The 132 points haul was their highest of the season and they also shot at 50.6 per cent from the field. Portland also converted 18 of 35 shots from 3-point range. Certainly, the team is in syn at the moment and poses a great threat to the visiting team.

 

Los Angeles Lakers:

Los Angeles Lakers have lost five times already this season. The team may have suffered from too much rotation that the head coach Luke Walton has done and that has brought an element of uncertainty in the team. While there are also rumours that the Lakers’ president Magic Johnson is not happy with Walton’s work and may show him the door if the results don’t improve in the next few matches.

The Showtime won the last game 114-113 against Dallas Mavericks. By doing this, they snapped their two-game losing streak and improved to 3-5 for the season. LeBron, once again, topped the scoring charts for the Lakers as he had 29 points in the match.

 

Regular Season Record-
Portland Trail Blazers: W-6, L-2
Los Angeles Lakers: W-3, L-5

 

Players to watch out for:

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard – With Blazers at home, you can count on Lillard to get going from the off in this match. The last two games may have fetched him a total of just 38 points, but the 28-year-old is still averaging 29.6 for the season. The Point-Guard could be the star man in your team.

CJ McCollum – Started the season with consecutive scores of 21 and 24 against Lakers and Spurs, and is in decent form at the moment. A good candidate for a team player in your NBA Fantasy team.

 

Los Angeles Lakers:

LeBron James – Still the early season, and you can say that Lakers and James are still learning how to get the best out of each other. The 3-times NBA MVP has had a good first eight games with his new franchise. His average is 27.8 so far and that too despite him hitting the 30s only on two occasions.

So, the best is yet to come out considering Stephen Curry has had 6 games of more than 30s already this season. James may explode here.
Kyle Kuzma – The 23-year-old Power-Forward is 2nd as far as scoring is concerned. The 2017 round 1 pick is dropping 19.3 points every game.
