POR vs GSW Dream11: The tall tales of the Western Conference have been added in the NBA for a long long time now. In another chapter of the Conference, West teams Portland Trailblazers and Golden State Warriors clash against each other. Trailblazers are just one game above the 50% win mark while Warriors are the best team in the league with 16 wins and just 2 losses
Portland has not been a great defensive team again this season. Despite having a sturdy PG-SF trio in Lillard, McCollum, and Powell, the team has lost many games this season. The bench is up-and-down at times but Jusuf Nurkic will need to produce more on both ends for this team to become more effective.
Warriors have posted an imposing record without their swingman Klay Thompson. Curry has been his MVP-self, receiving immense support scoring-wise from Poole and Wiggins. Green continues to be a two-way Forward while the bench unit has seen different actors step up their games.
Host: Portland Trail Blazers
Visitors: Golden State Warriors
Match Timing: 27 November, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Moda Center
Portland: Comforts of home
Trailblazers have a terrific 9-1 record at home. What is their away record? An awful 1-8. What does this indicate? Plain and simple, the team is way more effective on their home floor and that has given them a method to acquire a winning record. However, the team’s defense is similarly porous whether it is a home or away game. Trailblazers will have their work cut out against the Warriors.
Warriors: They are on fire
Warriors produce the most number of points while being one of the top defensive teams. How do you counter them? Unlike Portland, Warriors don’t care about playing at home or away, they are equally effective in both scenarios. Unlike Trailblazers, the Warriors are not just relying on their offense and have defeated most of their opponents with a difference of 11 or more. They are looking like a title team so far.
