MIL vs POR Dream 11: Will Giannis continue his scoring form against the Trail Blazers?

Milwaukee have been flying high in the Eastern Conference thanks to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Greek Freak recorded a double-double in the eight-point win over the Atlanta Hawks in their previous outing.

The Bucks are 11-3 after a stellar start to the season and next face the struggling Trail Blazers.

Carmelo Anthony is back in the NBA with the Blazers, but he couldn’t help his new team to a much-needed win.

Portland were without Damian Lillard and lost their last game to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Blazers star is suffering from back spasms and is out for this clash too.

Dream 11 Fantasy tips and predictions

Giannis recorded 33 points in the in over the Hawks and was helped by Eric Bledsoe, who racked up 28.

The pair should be the leading scorers for the Bucks again, and it will be interesting to see what the Trail Blazers.

CJ McCollum will have his hands full in trying to get one over the Bucks. Anthony will also have to step up on Thursday, but they need more players to step up.

Point guards

Bledsoe recorded 28 points, five assists and seven rebounds in the win over the Hawks and is the selected player for this position.

Shooting guards

The lack of Lillard from the line-up opens up the chances to select other players. Donte DiVincenzo has been excellent this season for the Bucks and scored 11 points in his previous outing.

Two Blazers stars join this side with Rodney Hood and McCollum paired.

McCollum is the best bet for a lot of points from the Blazers but Hood can also score some important points.

Small forwards

Kent Bazemore came off the bench to score 11 points in the loss against the Pelicans. He would need to put up more than that if his side want to beat the Bucks.

Power forwards

Anthony should be selected for this position but all eyes will be on Giannis.

Eric Bledsoe

The Greek has been incredible since last season, and should be the star of the game.

Centers

Robin Lopez is the option for this position. The Bucks star comes in handy off the bench and could get some decent points and rebounds.

Star player

Giannis is the only option for the star player with Lillard’s absence.

Prediction

It would have been a great match-up if Lillard was fit but without the Trail Blazers star, this has a Bucks win written all over.
