Capacity- 19,980

PHX vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Portland Trail Blazers will be aiming to end a two-game skid when they host an in-form Phoenix Suns in a regular season NBA match at Moda Center, in Portland, Oregon, United States, on Sunday morning (IST).

Before the last game, both Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder were deadlocked at 39-25 in the Western Conference. And there is a high probability that both these teams may end up facing each other in the first round of playoffs.

It was not just a regular season match, but a chance to gain some psychological belief before facing the eventuality of the playoffs.

The Blazers’ playoffs hoodoo is well-documented. In the last 19 playoff appearances, they failed to get past the first hurdle 15 times. And now consider this – Oklahoma City Thunder beat them 129-121 in the overtime at Moda Center and swept away the four-game series this season.

If Blazers do meet Thunder in the post-season, this series may play some part in deciding the round, at least in the mind.

While Phoenix Suns are propping up the table with a 15-51 record so far in the regular season. They may be one of the worst teams in NBA, but the franchise has reasons to look at the future with a belief.

Devin Booker is the shining light which could take this team forward. He is one of the best young players in NBA at the moment, and one of the most explosive player.

The 22-year-old is the youngest player to make 500 3-pointers in NBA history. He deserves to win more games, all for his great efforts.

Regular Season Record-

Portland Trail Blazers: W-39, L-26
Phoenix Suns:
W-15, L-51

Players to watch out for:

Portland Trail Blazers:
Damian Lillard –
Poured in a season-high 51 points against Oklahoma City Thunder in the last match. And this is just a sign of how explosive he can be with Basketball in his hands. If Blazers are to end their first-round NBA playoff hoodoo, Lillard is the key to open the doors to the unchartered territories. The 28-year-old has scored 26.6 points per game this season.

@GiveMeSport

CJ McCollum – He may not be as dominant and explosive as Damian Lillard is but he is consistent and is an indispensable part of Blazers’ roster. The 27-year-old shooting-guard is racking up the 2nd most points per game for Portland this season, 21.2 per game.

Phoenix Suns:
Devin Booker –
The Michigan-born star is one of the most exciting talents in the NBA. He is performing at a high level and deserves more wins for his incredible efforts. The 22-year-old shooting-guard is racking up 24.9 points per game.

@ClutchPoints

Deandre Ayton – The rookie was snapped up by Phoenix Suns in the 2018 draft and he really looks a star for the future. He is talented and will become better with games in his kitty, but the progress he has made this season has been explosive. He plays aggressive and an impassioned brand of Basketball and the 20-year-old Cnter is Suns’ 2nd best player.
