NOP vs POR Dream11 Dream11 Predictions
Portland Trail Blazers vs New Orleans Pelicans NBA 2018 Match Preview


Teams from the Western Conference will be taking each other on in a regular season of the NBA as Portland Trail Blazers take on New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.

New Orleans Pelicans were on a sensational start to the season but were duly interrupted by Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz. Their record for the season is 4-2 after six games but there is still a lot of potential within the team to do better. The best player in their roster is Anthony Davis and he will be fighting to be fit enough to play this game. If he once again misses out it might be a long night for the Pelicans and might end up seeing their record getting worse.

On the other hand, Portland Trail Blazers are on a similar trajectory. The last victory over Houston Rockets was a massive boost for the side. They have a 5-2 record this season and are looking to not only get into the playoffs but also get favourable matchups in order to make it into the conference finals. The likes of Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic are firing on all cylinders and this is going to be a clutch game for coach Terry Stotts.

NOP vs POR Dream11 players to watch out for:

New Orleans Pelicans –

Anthony Davis is thought to be one of the best players in the world. Averaging 27.2 points per game with 13.2 rebounds as well, he is one of the early candidates for the MVP of the league.

Nikola Mirotic is 27-years-old now and with him entering the prime years of his career, his future looks bright. He already is averaging 22.7 points per game this season and has a lot more to offer.

Portland Trail Blazers –

Damian Lillard is the best player this team by a long margin. If Portland Trail Blazers win, you have to look at Lillard who must have dropped more than 20 points to help the side get the W.

Jusuf Nurkic is one of the most underrated forward players in the league. He has the ability to score a lot of points but also be there for the rebounds. A valuable asset for any team he plays for.
