Portland Trailblazers vs Denver Nuggets Dream11 Prediction: Dream11 Fantasy Tips for DEN vs POR | Game 5 as TSR helps you make the best Dream11 team.
3 out of 4 Conference Semi-Finals are going to game 5 tied at 2 apiece, but none of them have been as difficult to read as the Blazers Nuggets. It might be due to the lack of real chance that either of the two teams are being given to actually go ahead and win the Championship, or it might be the lack of defense and multiple all-stars on teams. There are various factors, but all of them make this series more fun and interesting to watch rather than making them less so.
The intensity of this series is of a different kind. Other series’ have plot lines of underperforming and disgruntled stars and all that. But the Blazers and Nuggets don’t have that kind of drama. Their players are giving it their all, despite all kinds of injuries and minutes they are having to play. Its a blue collar sort of series and it feels like a respite watching this series, not because it is not competitive, but because the competitiveness is unassuming and not forced.

No one is having to go ballistic the way KD, Kawhi, Giannis, Kyrie, Harden are going, because they have to for their teams to win. There is an ebb and flow in the series led by probably by the two most unassuming superstars in the league in Damian Lillard and Nikola Jokic.
So while there are no standouts on a night in night out basis (except Jokic because of his rebounding and assist numbers), which makes this series unpredictable on Dream 11, where Seth Curry and Will Barton are as likely to have a breakout night as Jamal Murray and CJ McCollum.
Damian is due a big game and he usually delivers when his team needs it from him, and after a few quiet games, scoring wise, my gut tells me he will deliver in an important game 5 that will give the winner a huge advantage in what will end up becoming a best of 3 series now with the teams tied at 2-2. Jokic has big nights irrespective of whether he is able to score or not and that makes him a perennial pick and star player in any Dream 11 contest.
Paul Milsap has also been having himself a series against smaller forwards of Portland and averaging close to 35 points per contest in this series. Al-Farouq Aminu had an uncharacteristic poor game 3 statistically but was back to his usual 30 point performance in game 4 and he is a safe pick at 11.5 Credits. Gary Harris has also been finding his form and has been averaging close to 24 D11 points per contest in this series at a low price of 11.5 Credits with the ability to get to 30+ points if he heats up from distance.
- Nikola Jokic
- Damian Lillard
