Trailblazers vs Rockets NBA Live: The Portland Trailblazers will come into the game after beating the Spurs behind a 30 points outburst by Damian Lillard. Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets will hit the floor after losing to the Jazz despite a 27 points outing by Kenyon Martin Jr. More about POR vs HOU Dream11 will be given here.
Trailblazers’ season: While Portland has been better than last season, they ought to have a better record considering their incredible roster make-up. Lillard has continued to be an offensive enforcer, CJ has also racked up points, while the acquisition of Powell has given the depth at SF, whereas Carmelo and Kanter have been instrumental off the bench. The defense has been a problem for Portland, who ranks 23th in the opposition PPG and gives away a bunch of points. Terry Stots’ job as the head coach is in danger if he doesn’t make a deep Playoffs run.
Rockets’ season: Houston has broken up their roster and will be in the rebuild mode sans the James Harden era. They shipped Victor Oladipo and with their main player in John Wall out for the season, their makeshift roster is dependent upon Christian Wood and other role players. The Rockets are the second-worst team in the Western Conference. Rockets are in full tank mode right now.

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 third in terms of three-pointers made. The stellar PG+ will like Trailblazers to qualify for the NBA Playoffs and surprise the elite squads. He is also a great pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Khyri is taking advantage of an open roster and has lodged some incredibly impressive performances in the two games he has played so far. It remains to be seen how far he can manage to perform like this.
The dynamic guard has flown under the radar because he plays with Dame Dolla but since the injury, he has seen his scoring fall a little. Despite the fall, he has the ability to rack up points in a hurry courtesy of his shooting and finishing abilities. He has scored 20 points or more four times in the last 5 contests.
Norman Powell(since joining Trailblazers): PPG: 17.1 RPG: 3.1 SPG: 1.3
TPG: 1.6 PFP: 36
Powell’s addition adds a lot of substance to the SF position for Portland and has become a sturdy third option on the offensive end for his squad.
Jusuf Nurkic: PPG: 11.0 RPG: 8.8 APG: 3.3 BPG: 1.0 TPG: 2.0
This season has been full of struggles for the Center, but he has played some inspired basketball since the last few games. He is averaging 12 PPG and 10.2 RPG for the last 5 games.
Jae’Sean Tate: PPG: 11.2 RPG: 5.4 SPG: 1.3 PFP: 22
Tate has carved out substantial minutes with the Rockets and has been their only constant player. He is averaging 13.4 PPG and 6.4 RPG for the last 5 points.
