SAC VS POR Dream11 Team Prediction, NBA Regular Season: SAC vs POR Dream11 Basketball Match Season match-up: Kings enter into the game after suffering a heavy loss against the Toronto Raptors. The loss came at Sacramento’s home court and many holes in the Sacramento Kings‘ defense were exposed during the game. In the loss, DeAaron Fox continued his great scoring season and collected 23 points to lead the Sacramento Kings. Meanwhile, the Trailblazers are coming in this game after beating Timberwolves by 18 points in a game where Damian Lillard led all scorers with 39 points. For the Kings, they have a losing record now after playing in 9 games and are yet to find any cohesion in their line-up which is performing inconsistently. On the other hand, the Trailblazers have won half of their 8 games, and their defense has a tendency to relax and allow a lot of points. Both teams will have to tap their bench strength if they are to win and Fox will need to dial in defensively against the talented Lillard. The Trailblazers will like to bag a win at the Road and gain some confidence. More details about the SAC vs POR Dream11 Prediction will be related in this section.

SAC vs POR Dream11 Match Prediction
Kings will be a bit deflated after allowing 144 points in their previous game and now they will face the offensive threat of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum who have had a hot start to the season. Kings will rely upon DeAaron Fox on both the offensive and defensive ends and hope that Marvin Bagley controls the motion in the paint. Trailblazers may be able to sneak a game on the road, but to do that, they’d need players like Jusuf Nurkic and Carmelo Anthony. In terms of depth at the Center, Enes Kanter provides instant scoring for the Trailblazers, and for the Kings, Hassan Whiteside needs to match Enes at that position off the bench.
Sacramento Kings vs Portland Trailblazers, Key Players:
Lillard started the season slowly but he has picked up his scoring output and has regained the confidence he had last season. He is tough to handle because of his inside and outside scoring, and will pose a lot of problems for De’Aaron Fox. He posted 39 points, 7 assists, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals in the win against the Timberwolves, it is these type of numbers that make him a Super-player pick for the Dream11 Fantasy basketball showdown.
C.J. is the partner-of-crime for Damian Lillard for many seasons, and he has continued to be the second-leading scorer for the team. He has risen to the occasion and has posted impressive scoring numbers in the young season. He registered 20 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1 block in the win against the T’Wolves.
The Swiper is the leading scorer for the Kings and their primary playmaker. He is also an above-average defender and basically the face of the Kings Franchise. Fox has ways to go as a player, but he has looked decent so far. Fox is coming off 23 points, 3 assists, 1 rebound, 2 steals, and 1 block outing in the loss to the Raptors. Fox will need to achieve the 20+PPG for the Kings to be more successful.
Harrison has been an efficient scorer for Kings and is also their second-option on the offensive end. He has started the season well and has found a decent amount of rhythm to contribute on the offensive end. He is coming off 21 points, 8 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1 steal performance in the blowout loss to the Raptors. Kings will look for Harrison on the offensive end and he needs to be razor at that end for Kings to be more successful.
Buddy Hield: Buddy has regressed a little this season and is shooting only 35% from the field which is not a welcome sign for the Kings. He is averaging 15.1 PPG and 4.1 RPG. He posted 15 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal in the loss to the Raptors. Hield needs to figure it out soon or the Kings will suffer more losses as their Shooting Guard position will become vulnerable on both ends.
Richuan Holmes: Richuan, who is the starting Center for the Kings is having a great season and has created a difference in his position. He is averaging 12.9 PPG and 7.4 RPG, in addition to 1.1 SPG and 1.0 BPG. Richuan registered 10 points, 2 assists, 3 blocks, and 1 steal in his last match-up against the Toronto Raptors.
Enes Kanter: Kanter has been an instant offense and rebounding machine off the bench for the Trailblazers. He is averaging 10.9 PPG and 9.0 RPG. He lodged 10 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, and 2 blocks in the game against the Timberwolves.
Jusuf Nurkic is averaging 10.4 PPG and 7.8 RPG for the Trailblazers.
Marvin Bagley III leads the Kings in rebounds with 8.1 RPG.
Rookie Tyrese Haliburton is averaging 12.1 PPG and 5.1 APG off the bench for the Kings.
Carmelo Anthony is averaging 12.0 PPG.
