POR vs HOU Dream11 Match Prediction Basketball, NBA, Portland Trail Blazers vs Houston Rockets, 5 August

POR vs HOU Dream11 Match Prediction, NBA: Portland Trail Blazers know every game is important for them and every defeat can leave them with a more impossible task. This is one such game where the profile of the opponent is bigger and fearsome, but the Blazers have no choice but to turn up and be accounted for themselves. For, Blazers are set to meet Houston Rockets in a crunch NBA match at ESPN Wide World of Sports Arena, in Orlando, on Wednesday morning (IST).
POR vs HOU Dream 11 Prediction: Blazers have won one and lost one in the opening two games, but they are not in a position where they can afford, or make up, for the negative results. Six teams are fighting for one last playoff spot in the Western Conference. Memphis Grizzlies are currently holding down the 8th spot, but Spurs are only a couple of wins away from catching them and have a two-game advantage over both Grizzlies and Blazers. Houston Rockets have clocked two wins out of two in the NBA bubble, but it's their 120-116 win over Milwaukee Bucks that got everyone's attention. Rockets are looking a real deal at the moment.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Houston Rockets Dream11 Grand League Tips: Key Players:

  • James Harden: The 2018 NBA MVP had an average game by his lofty standards. But still he managed 24 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds against the Bucks. He is perhaps the best scorer in the NBA at the moment.
  • Russell Westbrook: Now he is looking like a part of Rockets' small-ball set-up. Westbrook had two solid games and was the best player on the court against the Bucks, as he had 31 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.
  • Damian Lillard: Blazers' best player. He is their talisman and the best hope to win a game. Lillard had 30 points and 16 assists in the last game.
  • Jusuf Nurkic: He is back to full fitness and perhaps to his level as well after a big performance in the last match. The big-man had 30 points and 9 rebounds in the last match for the Blazers.
  • J. Tucker, Danuel House and Robert Covington all are in good form for the Rockets.
  • Hassan Whiteside and CJ McCollum: Both haven't had the best of the outings in the NBA bubble so far and the Blazers could do with a solid performance in this match.

POR vs HOU Dream11 Today Match Prediction:

Portland Trail Blazers are a very good team. They can match any team on any given day, but it's the momentum and the current situation which seems to be suffocating their normal free-flowing game. Rockets are through and have less pressure to contend with, and not to mention the form of both James Harden and Russell Westbrook. A won for the Rockets is our call.
