However, the season is young and both the Pelicans and Raptors will look to build a base for the complete season.

NOP vs TOR Dream11 Match Prediction:
Raptors have had a cold start to their season and they have faced a little tension within the squad, which led to events like the suspension of Pascal Siakam. Raptors will hope that everyone moves on from such incidents, and focus on the sole job, i.e. to play basketball. Pelicans will look to involve Bledsoe more as it will bolster the Guard output for them. This game can swing Pelicans’ way as they are playing at their homecourt and if Zion and Bledsoe both perform consistently then they will be a handful to beat. Pelicans have a deep lineup with the likes of Josh Hart coming off the bench and they can become a handful to beat if their lineup gels quickly.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Toronto Raptors, Key Players:
The lanky Ingram is leading his team in scoring and the Pelicans have to rely heavily upon him since he is the only one in the team right now who has multiple methods of scoring. Ingram will like to build upon the start he has got and get his squad going as well. Ingram is coming off 20 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block in the outing against Oklahoma City Thunder. He can be a potential Super-Pick Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball fixture.
Kyle has been the prime scorer for the Toronto Raptors and with his age, he seems to be getting wise and trying all the ways to rescue his team out of tough situations. He is coming off 20 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals in the game against Knicks.
The athletic Zion is expected to be the face of the New Orleans Pelicans in the near future. He has had an up-and-down season so far but still has more than decent numbers so far. In his last game, he registered 12 points and 5 rebounds against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Zion is surely better than the numbers suggest and will look to become a better and versatile scorer.
Siakam had a frustrating time recently and had to even face disciplinary action from his head coach. He is the key part of the Raptors machine and they need him to achieve a better record in the Association. He didn’t play in the Raptors’ last game against the Knicks but posted 20 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block, and 2 steals in the outing against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Fred VanVleet: Fred is averaging 17.3 PPG and 6.3 APG during this season and is improving each game. He is coming off a spectacular performance, registering 25 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block in the game against the Knicks.
Lonzo Ball: The Pelicans PG is averaging 12.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 4.6 APG, and 1.8 SPG. He registered 16 points, 9 assists,8 rebounds, and 1 steal in the game against the Thunder.
Chris Boucher: The Forward is averaging 10.8 PPG, 6.3 RPG, and 2.5 BPG. He lodged 9 points and 9 rebounds in the game against the Knicks.
Note– OG Anunoby leads the Raptors in steals with 2.8 SPG.
Steven Adams is leading the Pelicans in blocks with 1.2 BPG.
Hart is averaging 8.2 RPG for the New Orleans Pelicans.
