POR vs LAC Dream 11 Prediction

Summer League has started with full fanfare and we have seen some terrific players performing at a high clip already. Summer League serves as a training ground for some, especially the rookies or sophomores, while for others it is a matter of finding a roster spot. In this game, the Portland Trailblazers are going to field a bunch of players who have already been starters in the league for multiple years but played overseas in recent years. Players like Beasley, Faried, and Mudiay are not obscure names and have been highly coveted at some point in their careers. On the other hand, the Clippers are majorly focused upon developing their young guns in Coffey, Scrubb, and Oturu. Trailblazers have experience on their side but the Clippers are hungry and fresh.

POR vs LAC Top Picks

Antonio Blakeney
Points: 27
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 00
Antonio is a blur on the court. He uses his superb handles to create separation and is highly effective in the open court situation. Blakeney is a shoot-first payer who likes the ball in his hands and can provide instant offense. He went off in the game against the Hornets and at one point, dropped 20 straight points. His offensive talent makes him a candidate of the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.

2. Jay Scrubb
Points: 24
Rebounds: 10
Assists: 00
Jay was injured for the most part of the last season and that surely derailed his development at the professional level. He was a lat 2nd round pick by the Clippers last year but has shown that he can hang around in this league as he has a lot of tools to be effective, from scoring to rebounding. Scrubb can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.

3. George King
Points: 17
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 01
King is a wing player who can shoot the lights out of the ball. His off-the-ball movement can be useful for a team that is looking for a player who can come off the bench and provide some decent shooting.

4. Daniel Oturu
Points: 12
Rebounds: 10
Assists: 02
This is a crucial time for Daniel who is looking to find his footing in the league. He is a versatile Center who runs the floor, finishes at the rim, finds open spaces for jumpers, and supplements decent rebounding as well. If Daniel works hard on his game this year, he can open up some minutes as the backup Center.

5. Kenneth Faried
Points: 08
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 00
In his younger days, Kenneth was one of the most electric dunkers in the NBA and played meaningful minutes. Faried is an athlete of the highest quality who can catch lobs, finish inside, and provide maximum effort on defense and rebounding. A team looking to make a Playoffs run this year can use him as a deep bench player.

6. Keon Johnson
Points: 08
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 02
Keon is a rookie who was selected by the Clippers as the 21st pick. Johnson is amazing at the change of directions moves, and his wiry frame and electric first step allow him to open up avenues for scoring.

07. Michael Beasley
Points: 09
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 03

08. Amir Coffey
Points: 05
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 02

09. Emmanuel Mudiay
Points: 04
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 09

Portland Trailblazers Team News

  • This roster is a unique case where there are a lot of established and former starting-caliber players pushing for a comeback in a single team. Kenneth Faried has been a regular Forward primarily for the Nuggets. Michael Beasley was once touted as becoming a scoring champion in the league although despite falling short of lofty expectations, he still had a decent career. Emmanuel Mudiay was the seventh pick in the 2015 draft but never lived up to the expectations.

Portland Trailblazers Squad: Michael Beasley, CJ Elleby, Nasir Little, Emmanuel Mudiay, George King, Antonio Blakeney, Greg Brown III, Jordon Crawford, Kenneth Faried, Milton Doyle, Kobi Simmons, Mike Vital, Trendon Watford, Kaleb Wesson, Erik McRee.

Los Angeles Clippers Team News

  • The startling lineup, team predictions, and the bench unit can all go wrong because in Summer League, sometimes coaches deliberately bench players who can produce at a high clip. It is difficult to predict the lineup for the next game even when the team has played earlier. So to form predictions for a team that hasn’t even played once can lead to inconsistencies as it is unpredictable. For example, Daniel Oturu who has a place in the NBA can be rested in favor of a G-League Player like Kaleb Wesson.
  • A lot of players with low stats during NBA Regular Season can be way better at times than college folks who averaged 20+ or the overseas or G-League Player who has better averages. So those stats are not necessarily the reflection of skillset among the peers here.

Los Angeles Clippers Squad: Isaiah Hicks, Jay Scrubb, Daniel Oturu, Keon Johnson, Amir Coffey, Lydell Elmore, Jordan Ford, Jason Preston, Kerwin Roach II, Kaleb Wesson.
