POR VS TOR Dream 11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: POR vs TOR Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Trailblazers will enter this contest after blowing out Sacramento Kings by 26 points on the road, in a game where C.J. McCollum posted 37 points and continued his subliminal season. Meanwhile, the Raptors will enter this game after a heart-breaking 1 point loss to the Warriors and had a chance to win the game at the buzzer. In that game, Siakam scored 25 points, which bodes well for the Raptors as he is returning to his old self. Trailblazers are overly dependent upon their star duo of Damian Lillard and McCollum, and they will want more contributions from Jusuf Nurkic in the long-run. Raptors will have their hands full if they are unable to control the Guard combo, and they’d have to rely upon Lowry and VanVleet to lock down the defensive side. This game will take place at the Moda Center, which is the home floor of Portland Trailblazers. More details about the POR vs TOR Dream11 Fantasy scenario will be related here.

POR vs TOR Dream11 Match Prediction
Portland is yet to finds its rhythm this season and apart from C.J. and Dame have found inconsistent offense from the rest of the unit. Toronto Raptors are in a worse situation than the Portland Trailblazers as they have yet to find substantial output on offense other than VanVleet, Siakam, and Lowry. The Raptors have had great individual performances throughout the season but they have not come along as a roster yet and that is partially the reason for their abysmal record. Trailblazers will have an advantage over the Raptors as they are playing at their home-court and the Raptors will be heartbroken after a close loss to the Warriors.
Portland Trailblazers vs Toronto Raptors, Fantasy NBA Key Players:
C.J. and Damian Lillard have interchanged the role of a primary scorer, but it is C.J. who is leading the team in points so far. C.J. has been red-hot to start the season and has taken up his game a level so far. His last outing attests to the fact, as he collected 37 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals in the win against the Sacramento Kings. His offensive output makes him a great choice as a Super-Player pick for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball showdown.
Dame Dolla has been spectacular offensively so far and has found immense help in his partner-in-crime C.J. McCollum. He has put up great numbers across the boards and has improved his efficiency as the season has progressed. In the win against the Kings, he posted 17 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1 steal. Dame can be considered as a Pro-Player pick in this Fantasy match.
Fred Van Vleet
Fred has been the shining light for the Raptors so far in this dismal start and leads them in scoring. He has performed well in the young season and has taken the mantle for the Raptors at the Shooting Guard position. He registered 21 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1 steal, almost mimicking his season averages. Fred will be an important component in this match-up against the Trailblazers.
Siakam had a tough start to the season but has made amends in the last few games. He is achieving some semblance and he knows that his output will determine which path the Raptors will take this season. He lodged 25 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists in the tough loss to the Warriors. Raptors will hope that Siakam comes on his own and help them gain some wins.
Kyle Lowry: Lowry has generated great offense through his playmaking and scoring at the PG spot averaging 19.1 PPG, 7.3 APG, and 5.6 RPG. He is coming off 17 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, and 1 steal outing against the Warriors and locked on Stephen Curry.
Chris Boucher: Chris is having an incredible season for the Raps and has been an intimidating defensive presence. He has posted 13.5 PPG, 6.0 RPG, and 2.1 BPG, making him an early candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year award.
Enes Kanter: Enes has lodged incredible numbers off the bench and has given Trailblazers relief at the Center position since Jusuf Nurkic has been a bit off with his offense so far. He is averaging 10.9 PPG and 9.7 RPG and registered 11 points and 15 rebounds in the win against the Kings.
OG Anunoby leads the Raptors in steals with 1.9 SPG.
Carmelo Anthony is averaging 12.1 PPG for the Trailblazers off the bench.
Jusuf Nurkic is averaging 10.3 PPG and 7.8 RPG.
