LAL vs POR Dream11 NBA Team Prediction – Fantasy Team News
Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trail Blazers

Match Timing: November 15, 2018, @ 09:00 AM IST
NBA Regular Season
Venue – Staples Center, Los Angeles
Capacity- 21,000


Los Angeles Lakers’ recent good form will be on the line when they face one of the biggest tests of this regular season in Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center, on Thursday morning (IST).

Los Angeles Lakers:

Lebron James admitted recently that he almost cracked during the Los Angeles Lakers’ struggles at the start of the season. For a player of his pedigree who never missed out on the NBA finals, missing out on the playoffs and finishing the regular season outside the top-8 is certainly alien and perhaps the kind of stain on his achievement that he is so well without.

But the 14-times NBA All-Stars certainly knew where he was heading. The Western Conference is so congested with potent teams that besides the likes of Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, no team can take the results for granted in this part of NBA planet. But the rising tides have changed their courses and now everything looks settled at the moment as for the first time this season, Lakers have won three times in a row, and four times in the last five games.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Portland Trail Blazers are second in the Western Conference and sit just 1 win away from the leaders Golden State Warriors at the moment.

Blazers started the season with three wins and two losses, and after that, they have lost just once and that negative result came against the Los Angeles Lakers. That was a home game for Blazers and despite leading at the halftime, Damian Lillard and Company was blown away by the Showtime in the 3rd quarter. A 16 point deficit was enough to undo their 37-26 comeback of the last quarter and Portland ended up losing that match 110-114 at Moda Center.

Revenge time?

Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Lakers: W-7, L-6
Portland Trail Blazers: W-10, L-3

Players to watch out for:

Los Angeles Lakers:

LeBron James – A game-high of 26 points from the three-time NBA MVP saw Los Angeles Lakers extend their winning streak to three games. The 33-year-old former Cleveland Cavaliers star is leading the scoring charts for his new team this season as he is averaging 26.4 points per game. Too good not to be in your team and could prove fatal to your NBA fantasy dreams if looked beyond.

Kyle Kuzma – He is having a good season, looks comfortable and judgemental on the court. Also, dropped 18 points and 8 rebounds against Atlanta Hawks which proved critical as the game ran close.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard – The 28-year-old star is averaging 26.0 points per game for the regular season. However, he has gone downtown in the recent matches, failing to touch the 20-point mark in three of his last five matches. But he remains Blazers’ best bet on any day.

CJ McCollum – This is by far his best start to this campaign. The 27-year-old is averaging 20.5 points per game this season, which is way better than his career average of 17.3 points per game. Just a week ago, he dropped a magnificent 40 points against Milwaukee Bucks, making him an indispensable part of this Portland squad.

Los Angeles Lakers:

Injured – Los Angeles Lakers don’t have any player listed as injured as of now.

Questionable – Lonzo Ball twisted his ankle in the 114-110 win over Minnesota Timberwolves, and was a doubt for the game against Atlanta Hawks. However, he played and should be fit enough for this game as well.

Suspended – None

Portland Trail Blazers:

Injured – Portland will be at full strength for the trip to Los Angeles.

Questionable – Maurice Harkless is under day-to-day inspection and will be assessed ahead of the match.

Suspended – None
