POR vs MIN Dream11 Match Prediction

POR vs MIN Dream11: Portland Trail Blazers are on their best run this season and will be looking to stretch it by one more game as they host an out-of-form Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA 2019-20 regular-season at Moda Center, on Sunday morning.


Form:

  • Portland made a horrible start to the current season, and it was unex[ected considering the high hopes they created around them after a deep run in the 2019 post-season.
  • But the Blazers are now starting to hit their strides and come into this game on the back of three successive wins, their best such run this season.
  • Portland beat Orlando Magic 118-103 in the last game and improved their seaosn record to 13-16.
  • Minnesota Timberwolves lost their 9th consecutive game as they went down 109-100 against Denver Nuggets in the last match.
  • Karl-Anthony Towns missed that game due to an injury, but the Wolves can certainly do better than the current streak they are on at the moment.
  • Wolves are now 10-17 on the season, and sit three-game half games behind the playoff positions.
