Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trailblazers Dream11 Prediction: Dream11 Fantasy Tips for DEN vs POR | Game 7 as TSR helps you with Dream11
Start Time – 1 am (IST)
Arena – Pepsi Center (Denver)
Series so far – (3-3)
This series has thrown up a lot of questions and very soon we will get our answers. Game 7s have a way of revealing things about teams that the teams don’t themselves know. Is Jamal Murray a real threat for a playoffs team or is he a microwave scorer in a small market that has been overhyped into a fringe star? Is Damian Lillard’s legacy that of winning basketball or just a good scorer that can’t drag his team across the line through multiple playoff series’? Is Nikola Jokic the next MVP candidate from Europe or is he just another perennial all-star, not dominant enough to get the highest individual honor? And at last, is the league of the future, going to be run by point guards who score in volumes or big men who can shoot and pass, in a complete role reversal of what was the norm for decades?
All these questions will be answered to some extent in game 7 and this series if not anything else, has deserved to go on as long as possible and with a game of 4OTs and a game 7, we have achieved that mark.

Denver Nuggets vs Portland Trailblazers Dream11 Prediction
Denver Nuggets have relied heavily on Nikola Jokic this series and he has delivered to the tune of 27 points, 14 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks per game. Those numbers put him in the untouchable category and he is by far the best possible star option in this series.
Jamal Murray has also stepped up big time and is nearly matching Damian Lillard’s production in most categories and even bettering him in others. Murray has a stat line of 24.7 points, 6 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 0.8 steals per game for the series. He also comes in at a very low price of 15.5 Cr, given his stats and Lillard’s price of 23 Credits.

For Nuggets Paul Milsap and Gary Harris who both had poor series’ against the Spurs have found their groove in this series. Harris is averaging 33 D11 points per contest at a meagre 10.5 Credit price. His production is only a few points lower than McCollum but the price difference is 7 credits. Paul Milsap is even better averaging 40+ D11 points at 13 Credit price for a 3+ PPC.
Portland hasn’t seen the best of Damian Lillard in this series, except for game 6 where Lillard time made a return, with series high 32 points for him. His best game yielded 41.1 Dream 11 points but Jamal Murray still ended up with better numbers as he returned with 46 points in Game 6. The problem for Lillard is, his best comes when he isn’t handling the ball all the time as evidenced by his best coming in game 6 when Evan Turner often played point freeing up Lillard to get to his spots. This though means that while Lillard scores his points, he doesn’t do much else, resulting in lower points.
CJ McCollum has had an up and down series of sorts, but us the highest point scorer for the Blazers with a total if 232 D11 points in this series. And what stands out is his scoring in all Blazer wins. Every game that the Blazers have won have come in games McCollum has taken over. So if you are counting on a Blazers win, McCollum becomes a safe pick.
Rodney Hood and Zach Collins have been very good for Portland in this series off the bench. Collins finally found his range in game 6 and Portland extended its lead due to his defensive effort and his range bothering Jokic who is a terrible defender outside of the post.
