Trailblazers vs Nets Fantasy NBA: The Portland Trailblazers will enter the game after a blowout loss against the Mavericks folding in within 3 Quarters. On the other hand, the Brooklyn Nets will come into the battle after beating the Wizards behind a 28 points outing by Kyrie Irving. More information about POR vs BKN Dream11 will be given here.
Trailblazers’ season: Portland has been a better team than last season, and they have done well to keep their campaign afloat. Lillard is right now the second-best scorer in terms of PPG and despite missing McCollum for the most parts, Gary Trent and Carmelo have covered the hole by being dependable scorers. McCollum is back but may take some time to come on his own.
Nets’ season: The Brooklyn Nets are now placed 2nd in the NBA standings for Eastern Conference and if healthy, they are favorites to contend for the NBA Finals this season. James Harden has notched multiple triple-doubles and with Irving, he has racked up a bunch of wins this season. They have been tough to beat even without Kevin Durant as they still have two of the most explosive scoring guards in the League.

Harden has been in incredible form this season and has carried his team to the peaks. He is an offensive juggernaut and to top it off, he leads the league in APG. James’ PPG numbers may be down but he might even exert a bigger influence now with his elite passing and ability to take over games. He can be a great pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Dame Dolla has mounted an MVP-styled campaign and the Trailblazers have also benefitted from his exploits. He has continued to be one of the more prolific scorers and ranks second in terms of three-pointers. Lillard has been in such heroic form that he is averaging 31.8 PPG during this month, including a 50 points performance.
Kanter has been in amazing form since he has started for the Trailblazers. He gives elite rebounding and chips in with decent offense too.
Harris has played an amazing complementary in a team full of high-quality players and his 3-pt shooting makes Nets a more potent team night in and night out.
Gary Trent Jr.: PPG: 15.1 RPG: 2.3 PFP: 24
Gary is having a breakout season and his squad has benefitted from his surge. He has given Trailblazers a consistent scoring option at the guard position.
Carmelo Anthony: PPG: 14.0 RPG: 3.3 TPG: 1.0 PFP: 26
Carmelo is a veteran Forward who is still an effective offensive option and has come up big late in games for Portland. He has been in superb form this month, averaging 17.0 PPG.
Nicolas Claxton: PPG: 9.3 RPG: 3.9 BPG: 1.6 PFP: 22
The young player has been injured for the most season but has looked in decent touch since he has been back, making a difference at both ends of the floor.
DeAndre Jordan: PPG: 7.7 RPG: 7.4 BPG: 1.3 PFP: 21
Robert Covington: PPG: 8.5 RPG: 6.6 SPG: 1.6 BPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.2
