LAL vs POR Dream11 Dream11 Predictions
Portland Trail Blazers vs LA Lakers NBA 2018 Match Preview

Overview:

The most famous basketball player in the world, LeBron James, made a switch to LA Lakers to pursue his dream of winning an NBA Championship with a third team. The first game he will officially play for his new side will be against Portland Trail Blazers.

La Lakers have undertaken a project that can very well see them become one of the teams in the league in the coming years. Currently, the squad lacks experience, but the addition of superstar LeBron James and Rajon Rondo will help them get into the playoffs. A lot of talks about other players and possible trades are gathering the attention of the world. But, we can ignore the fact that coach Luke Walton still has a decent team who can prove every single doubter wrong in this coming year.

Meanwhile, Portland Trailblazers will be eyeing a similar season they had in 2017. The team were able to secure a midtable finish in the Western Conference. Some of their signings had injuries, and Portland Trailblazers did not have the strongest team whenever they got on the pitch. Coach Terry Stotts would be aware of that fact and is cautiously optimistic at the chances of the team in this campaign.

LA Lakers –

LeBron James is widely regarded as the best player in basketball in the world right now. Many have disputed if he is the greatest of all time or not, and he has travelled to the West Coast to prove his admirers right about those claims.

Rajon Rondo is a veteran point-guard with crisp shooting technique. The American has won it all in NBA and will be dawning the role of a mentor as well with LA Lakers.

Portland Trail Blazers –

Jusuf Nurkic is one of the players to keep an eye out on in future. The 24-year-old Bosnian started 79 games last year and averaged a commendable 14.3 points.

CJ McCollum has always been one those player who doesn’t get the limelight for his heroics. He arguably has the best Free Throw percentage and is clinical around the three-point line as well.
