The Grizzlies entered the bubble as No. 8 seed in the Western Conference with 3.5 games ahead of Portland. As the Grizzlies would want to hold their seed position, the Trail Blazers desperately need a win. The Trail Blazers are going to have a difficult time in the next few weeks, with this game as the first hurdle. Both the teams would be playing after a long layoff of almost 5 months. This can be a strong factor in the game.
Head to Head
The interesting thing is, in the last 12 encounters between the teams, no team has won two straight matches.
The Trail Blaizers are the 4th worst team, when it comes to defending the 3-point line. The opponents score 37.7% from downtown. The team surrendered 114.1 pts per 100 possessions. This shows that the team is really struggling with their defence. Grizzlies on the other hand allowed 110.4 points per 100 possession.
The Trail Blazers will miss T. Ariza though Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins are back from injuries, thus strengthening their offense and defence as well. The star player D. Lillard would lead the show against J. Morant and team Memphis. Being the more experienced team, the trail blazers should create pressure right from the start. Even though the Blazers have a weak defence they have much more dangerous players than memphis.

Fantasy NBA Dream11 Prediction | Tips and Tricks for today’s match between Portland Trail Blazers & Memphis Grizzlies | 1st August 2020
It has been a series of ups and down for the trail blazers due to injuries of big players and poor defence. Damien Lillard is a must have in your team, as he will have all the responsibility to drive the Trail Blazers home.
Hassan Whiteside and Jonas Valanciunas can give you major rebound and block points.
As T. Ariza is out and Z. Collins is back, he can be considered along with Jusuf Nurkic.
From the Memphis Grizzlies Ja Morant has been the leading scorer. He will be scoring most of the points today along with J. Jackson.
B. Clarke has been in good form off the bench and can give you good fantasy points.
