POR vs MIN Dream11 Match Prediction

POR vs MIN Dream11: Minneista Timberwolves will be looking to snap their nine-game losing run when they play the in-form Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center on Sunday morning. But for that to happen, Timberwolves will have to play out of their skin, for they have been very poor, and are perhaps the worst team in the NBA at the moment. They lost 108-100 against Denver Nuggets in the last match and lost more ground on the playoff positions.

Portland Trail Blazers, on the other hand, are looking to win their fourth consecutive game for the first time this season. and on the current form of both teams, you have to back Damian Lillard and Co in this game. The Blazers beat Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors and Orlando Magic in the last three matches.

POR vs MIN Dream11 Grand League tips:

  • If Karl-Anthony Towns play in this game, he can be a good option to go with, in the Dream11 Small League teams.
  • But if he does, and in any case, Damian Lillard is the no-nonsense choice.
  • But Hassan Whiteside has been in incredible form for the Blazers, on both ends of the court, and should be considered seriously. We say, go with him in Small league teams.
  • Consider Skal Labissiere for both Grand League and Small League teams. He can be a good value.
  • Anfernee Simons can be a good addition as well. He is clocking impressive minutes for the Blazers of late.
