POR Vs IND Dream11 Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers Vs Indiana Pacers NBA 2019-20. Dwindling Portland Trail Blazers wade into the Eastern Conference in a bid to stall their crumbling form.

With just two wins in ther last five games in NBA 2019-20, Portland Trail Blazers have lost their way massively. The recent set of events have been calamitous for the side, seeing them crumble and fall apart to be left in apathy owing to their callous showings.

Left flummoxed with their bygone outings, the cumbersome results leave the side languishing in 11th position in the Western Conference. Far from challenging for a spot in the top 8, the side are now struggling to rescue themselves from dropping down into the pits of the points tally, a position which is incessantly looming given their form at the moment.

And it’s exactly this abject form which Eastern Conference’s Indiana Pacers will be looking to capitalise on as they look to put down a laggard opposition come today’s encounter. They are coming into this tie having trounced GSW 128-119 to bring up their second win in succession, one which saw them make massive strides to occupy 5th spot at the moment.

Probable Winner

Defence has been a massive source of concern for Portland Trail Blazers this season and it’s something we see resulting in their demise today as well. The side’s wavering backline will find it extremely treacherous to curtail a luscious Pacers’ attack, one which will batter and rattle them to bring up the side’s third win in a row.

Dream 11 Picks

Point Guard

With the 28.3 ppg and the 7.6 apg to go with them, we begin this component of our Dream 11 side with the selection of Damian Lillard from Portland Trail Blazers.  If his side are to have any chance of stunning a stalwart opposition today, the point guard will be at the forefront of their attacking sorties, something he’s more than dutifully taken responsibility of till now.

Shooting Guard

Our first pick is coming from Portland Trail Blazers in this slot. There was a massive need to rope in players who offer cheap prices and assured scrimmages on the court and Gary Trent offer exactly that to our side.

Elsewhere, his versatility skill set, one which has seen him both latch onto the second chance points and send down free throws with a high conversion rate, Justin Holiday will be our selection from the Pacers.

Small Forward

Leading his side’s scoring ranks with the 18.3 ppg, we begin this docket of our Dream 11 side with the pick of T.J. Warren from the visiting unit. The player is an indomitable performer, someone whose dauntless ability to pull off both points in the paints and execute quick break points makes him a must have pick.

He’s going to be pared up by Dough McDermott, someone who has been elevated into the side’s playing 5 given the spate of injuries they are reeling with at the moment. Elsewhere, we are going to be getting Trevor Ariza from Portland, someone who earns a spot in our side owing to his ability to send down floating jump points and spin and slams.

Power Forward

With the 12.8 rpg, we are moving in from Domantas Sabonis from Indiana Pacers for this contest. His ability to string together a hoard of deflections, rebounds, steals and blocks makes him the ideal player in this docket, someone who has stamped his authority in defence for the side.


Myles Turner from the Pacers wraps up our Dream 11 contingent for the day with his dual nature as a player seeing him canter his way down both the paints persistently.

Lillard is our star player today.
