Key Players for the matches to be played on March 13th March 2018
POR vs MIA NBA Fantasy Match Info- Key Players
- Portland Trail Blazers
The hottest team in NBA on current form and the team which has been the surprise package this season. A team that looks like it has all the ingredients to go all the way to NBA finals, and why not if your team has Damien Lillard and C.J. McCollum in your team, you can show some audacity to dream big.
Blazers are currently on a nine-game winning streak, and during that imperious run, they have beaten the mighty Golden State Warriors twice. With a record of 40-26, Portland are 3rd in the Western Conference and first in the Northern division. Though they may not be able to overtake conference leaders Houston Rockets and 2nd Golden State Warriors, Terry Stotts’ men can certainly finish 3rd and make it to the playoffs of 2018 NBA season.
Key Players – Too many actually as it was the benchwarmers of Portland who scored 47 points and played a crucial role in beating Golden State Warriors. But as we have to choose players for our fantasy team, we would go for Damian Lillard and C. J. McCollum.
a. Damian Lillard – The 27-year-old point-Guard is finally coming good for his team this season. The three-time NBA All-Star is averaging an incredible 26.8 points per game which is the fifth-best record in NBA this season. He is also dishing out assists at 6.5 per game which is outstanding to say the least. So if you are going to create an NBA team when Portland are playing, then Damian Lillard is the player to draft into your team.
b. C.J. McCollum – If a player is averaging more than 20 points per game in a regular season, then it has to be a special season for that particular player because accumulating that many points over the course of the whole season require utter dedication.
Like Damien Lillard, C.J. McCollum is having one of the best NBA seasons of his career as he is averaging 21.8 points per game. A big reason for you to make him your vice-captain as his points may fetch you some bucks in NBA fantasy games.
- Miami Heat
Miami Heat are on a very good run after winning six times in their last eight games. That incredible run has put them well in the contention for the NBA playoffs. They are 7th in the Eastern Conference. So this match between Portland and Miami puts two of the most inform teams against each other.
Key Players – Arguably the biggest name in Miami Heat’s roster is Dwyane Wade. But he is injured and you can’t go with an injured star in your team.
- Tyler Johnson – He has come good in the last few weeks after scoring in the 20s in the last few games.
- Justise Winslow – He is in red hot form and should come into a fantasy team based on his performance against Washington Wizards.
