UTA vs POR Dream11 Team Prediction NBA Projections, Fantasy Basketball Picks for Jazz vs Trailblazers, 9 April


Jazz vs Trailblazers Fantasy NBA: The Utah Jazz will come into the game after losing an intense OT battle against the Suns despite a 41 points outburst by Donovan Mitchell. On the other hand, the Portland Trailblazers will hit the floor after losing to the Clippers despite a 32 points onslaught by Norman Powell. More information regarding UTA vs POR Dream11 will be given here.

Jazz’s season: Utah Jazz has clicked on both sides of the floor and has become the toughest team to beat this season. They have a defensive stalwart in Rudy Gobert and an offensive phenomenon in Donovan Mitchell, who is surrounded by a cast of shooters and players who can play decent defense consistently. Clarkson and Ingles have brought a lot of substance off the bench and Jazz is a team built to outlast most teams in the Association and will be a handful to deal with in NBA Playoffs.

Trailblazers’ season: Portland has been a better team than last season, and they have done well to keep their campaign afloat. Lillard is right now the second-best scorer in terms of PPG and despite missing McCollum for the most parts, he kept them afloat. McCollum is regaining his rhythm after being out for a long time in the middle. The addition of Norman Powell can make them a more formidable unit and has given them a stable Forward too.

Projected Fantasy Points: 50
Dame Dolla has mounted an MVP-styled campaign and the Trailblazers have also benefitted from his exploits. He has continued to be one of the more prolific scorers and ranks second in terms of three-pointers made. He is also a great pick as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Donovan Mitchell
PPG: 25.4
APG: 5.4
RPG: 4.4
SPG: 1.0
TPG: 2.8
PFP: 48
Mitchell is the offensive leader of the Jazz and his production is one of the main reasons why they are at the peak of the NBA rankings. Mitchell has become a terrific scorer and he can score in multiple ways. Donovan will love to reach the zenith of the NBA by winning the championship this year.

Rudy Gobert
PPG: 14.6
RPG: 13.2
BPG: 2.9
TPG: 1.6
PFP: 44
Gobert is having a season of his life, as he has become an elite rebounder, second-best shot blocker in BPG, and a reliable scorer in the paint. Gobert paints a lucrative picture of an ideal center and he is having a historic season. He has notched a double-double 13 out of the last 15 games.

CJ McCollum
PPG: 23.8
APG: 4.8
RPG: 3.7
SPG: 1.1

UTA vs POR Dream11 Sleeper Picks

Norman Powell:   PPG: 19.4     RPG: 3.0     SPG: 1.2       TPG: 1.8        PFP: 36
Powell is still adjusting to the Portland Trailblazers offensive scheme after getting traded just 10-11 days ago. However, he is a terrific option as a complementary scorer and has averaged 18.0 PPG, 3.2 RPG, and 2.0 SPG since his arrival in Portland.

Jordan Clarkson:   PPG: 17.3     RPG: 4.0      TPG: 1.7       PFP: 27
The guard is well-adept at breaking down the defense with his dribbling, shooting, and driving abilities. He exemplifies the depth Jazz has at the guard position and is instant offense.

Enes Kanter:   PPG: 12.0     RPG: 11.7      TPG: 1.2      PFP: 34
Kanter has been in amazing form since he has started for the Trailblazers. He gives elite rebounding and chips in with decent offense too.
