POR vs PHX Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 24 October


NBA season has now spread its wings and we have already seen some praiseworthy performances. In this match, Portland Trailblazers square off against the Phoenix Suns. More about POR vs PHX Dream11 will be given below.

POR vs PHX Dream11 Prediction

Portland Trailblazers lost the first game to the Kings and squandered away 123 points. The team has been terrible for many years now. There was a time when Portland had defenders like Wes Matthews, Nic Batum, and Robin Lopez, but those days are long gone. The team has become more offensive-minded but that is not going to cut it. Lillard, McCollum, Powell, and Nurkic are all terrific scorers but the team defense hasn’t clicked since the last season.

Phoenix took care of business against the Lakers in the last game on the back of Chris Paul’s 20+ points, 10+ assists performance. Suns are showing some scary signs for other squads as Bridges has shown some amazing scoring so far. For fantasy fans, picks like Ayton, Paul, and Bridges can be big-time accumulators. On the other hand, Crowder and Johnson can act as lineup stabilizers.

POR vs PHX Top Picks

*stats from last game*

Damian Lillard (POR)
Points: 20
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 11
Steals: 01
Damian comes into the match after an 8/24 shooting struggle. But he will surely bounce back from it sooner rather than later. Damian is one of the top scorers in the league and can light it up in a hurry. He can produce a high-fantasy value in nine out of ten games.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 45-60

Chris Paul (PHX)
Points: 23
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 14
Steals: 02
CP-3 is among fifth in the list of All-time assists leaders, and can easily move to third position this season if he is healthy. Paul has begun the season as the Suns’ most threatening offensive player and that is barely a surprise. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 Fantasy NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 45-52.

Deandre Ayton(PHX)
Points: 08
Rebounds: 15
Assists: 02
Steals: 02
Ayton has become one of the most reliable bigs in the league. His paint scoring, rebounding, and defense, makes the Suns a formidable unit on a nightly basis.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 34-44

CJ McCollum(POR)
Points: 34
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 05
Steals: 03
Steals: 01
CJ is a walking bucket and 25-35 points are routine for him. The guard forms a superb backcourt pairing with Damian but the two have not made a deep playoffs run yet. When will CJ see a taste of at least Western Conference Finals in a loaded West?
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 49-60

Devin Booker(PHX)
Points: 22
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 04
Steals: 02
Devin bounced back from a 3/15 shooting game and knocked 9/19 shots in the last game. Booker is one of the best scorers in the league and is heading for another 22-26 PPG season it seems.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 43-48

Jusuf Nurkic (POR)
Points: 20
Rebounds: 14
Assists: 02
Nurkic has developed into a dependable big and has shown growth every season Nurk can propel his squad to new heights if he is healthy although his and Portland’s defense need a lot of work.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 42-48

Mikal Bridges (PHX)
Points 21
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 03
Steals: 03
NBA teams must be scared at the rate of Mikal’s growth. This season he looks even better on both sides of the floor and that can bolster the chances of a deep playoffs run by the Suns. In terms of fantasy value, he is becoming a “don’t look past me” option.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 37-47

Norman Powell(POR)
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 00
Powell is predominantly a scorer and the Trailblazers will expect him to become a sturdy third-option on the team. He can create his own shot and can also play off-the-ball.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-26

Jae Crowder(PHX)
Points: 13
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 00
Jae is a big-time two-way role player and has given Suns both defense and perimeter scoring
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 18-24

Anfernee Simmons (POR)
Points: 11
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 04
Early trends suggest Simmons getting more minutes than Dennis Smith Jr. as the backup.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-19

Javale McGee(PHX)
Points: 09
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 00
He is a solid back-up Center who can help balance fantasy lineups with his low credit score.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-18


Cameron(PHX) scored 08 points, 3 assists in the last match. Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-18

Nasir Little(POR) had 7 points, 3 rebounds in the last game. Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-18

Cameron Payne bagged 4 points, 4 assists in the last game. Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-18
