Portland is placed among the upper echelon in the Western Conference and they can be a pesky opponent in the Playoffs.
Kings’ season: Sacramento is going through a rebuilding face now for more than a decade, however, DeAaron Fox has shown promise at the prime guard position, while the core of Marvin Bagley and Buddy Hield is also decent to build around.

PFP: 47(Projected Fantasy Points)
Dame Dolla has done a remarkable job of carrying the Trailblazers all season long and has more than made up for the absence of C.J. McCollum. His scoring and playmaking skills have aided Portland to be one of the most potent offenses in the league and he can even be considered as a contender for the MVP award. Dame is also a lucrative choice as a Dream11 NBA Super-Player.
The swiper has been impressive in scoring the ball and despite his team struggling, he has produced an incredible season. His playmaking abilities also make him an impressive all-around offensive player and he is well adorned to perform the role of a primary scorer for his team. Fox has eclipsed the 20 points mark 6 times in the last 7 games.
Enes has filled in well for the injured Nurkic and has shown that he is a starting-caliber player. The big man has averaged 14.2 RPG since the last 5 games and continues to be an impact player.
Barnes has been a reliant scorer at the Forward position and he is also a great rebounder while being a decent passer. The Forwards’ numbers have been down prior to previous years and that has affected his team’s performances too. However, he has averaged 22.7 PPG in the last 4 games.
Buddy Hield: PPG: 16.3 RPG: 4.5 APG: 3.2 TPG: 1.8 PFP: 32
Buddy has struggled to shoot at many points in the season but he always keeps a defender busy with his dynamic moves and is an able scorer at the two-guard slot. He is averaging 29.5 PPG in the last 2 games.
Carmelo Anthony: PPG: 13.8 RPG: 3.4 TPG: 1.0 PFP: 28
Melo has done well in his bench role for the Trailblazers and has come up clutch off the bench too. His experience allows him to carve ways for scoring and he has finally shown that he can be effective as a bench player and accept the role.
Richuan Holmes: PPG: 13.1 RPG: 8.2 BPG: 1.5 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 28
Holmes supplies great defense, decent rebounding, and scoring at the big-man position. He has had a great season and has become a reliable player at Center.
Marvin Bagley: PPG: 14.1 RPG: 7.5 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 32
Gary Trent Jr.: PPG: 15.5 RPG: 2.2 TPG: 0.8 PFP: 24
