Norman Powell is returning to Portland, agreeing on a five-year deal worth $90 million.
Powell set a career-high in scoring last season with 18.6 points to go along with over three rebounds and one steal. He should be in line for another huge season with the Trail Blazers this upcoming season, especially if they don't bring back Carmelo Anthony.
Norman Powell totaled 29 points (11-15 FG, 4-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist, two blocks, and one steal in the Trailblazers’ 115-95 win over the Trailblazers on Saturday.
Powell dropped 29.0 points in the Trailblazers’ win over the Nuggets, putting up an incredibly on-time scoring clinic to help the team reclaim some of the momenta in this series. This game could be the best time to invest in Powell, as he has improved in his scoring and contribution to several performance categories of the stat-sheet. It could also be the best time to invest in Powell because of his regular-season trend of improving his scoring output in every back-to-back game played against the same team. Powell could be in store for an even bigger scoring performance if we accept the possibility that he gets even better the more he competes against the same opponent. Just something to think about, ultimately this was a great game, and although he has been able to "stuff" the stat-sheet for his second consecutive contest his value can still be volatile and limited due to the overleveraging of scoring as a means to produce strong fantasy outings.
Norman Powell totaled 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-6 3PT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal in the Trailblazers' 120-115 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday.
Powell scored 18.0 points in the Trailblazers' loss to the Nuggets, contributing to a fully stuffed stat-line that marked his best fantasy performance of the series. This effort was his best so far in the series and one the team sure hopes to see again. He certainly has the potential to put up slate-altering efforts; however, he hasn’t been able to produce at a high clip consistently. With most of his value tied up in his scoring, he could be a risky investment for your DFS lineups.
