DEN Vs WAS Dream11 And Probable Playing 5: East meets West as today’s encounters round off with an inter zonal encounter
Placed in second place in the Western Conference on the ongoing edition of the marquee basketball league, Denver Nuggets have been in unsparing and unforgiving form. The 12-3 record which the side have in their kitty is clearly vindictive of how they have vehemently and blatantly put down their opponents, a record they’ll be looking to keep intact when they square conferences to take on Eastern Conference’s Washington Wizards today.
Coming into today’s encounter having tasted consummate success against Phoenix Suns the last time around as they got the better of the side by 116-104, its Denver Nuggets’ defence which clearly stands tall amount their counterparts. The side have punched above their weight, throwing the kitchen sink and more at their opponents to show fight, character, perseverance, resoluteness, resolve and vigour with each trait contributing towards the side’s disciplined and responsible defensive showing.
And when a languishing and agonising Washington Wizards side go to play against an outfit who have lost just twice at home, things are going get extremely tricky for the visiting setup. The side have lost five matches away from home, a string of form which has seen them dwindle and regress to fall down into ninth place in the Eastern Conference with the nine defeats from 14 matches.
Although the side have managed to infuse fresh life into their season with three of their five wins coming in their last five matches, the side’s two match winning spree was halted at the wrong time after the side ending up losing to Sacramento Kings the last time around. They look pushovers ahead of today’s imminent clash, one which looks set to be a foregone conclusion in the home side’s favour.

DEN Vs WAS Dream11 Point Guard
His team’s leading scorer with the 18.9 points till now, Denver Nuggets’ point guard, Jamal Murray s our pick in this slot of our Dream 11 side. The player has not only laid up the ball for his side but has been critically involved in their attacking plays as well to be on the end of the plays the side have fathomed to become an integral part of the unit’s gameplan.

Malik Beasley from Denver Nuggets comes into our unit for this encounter majorly owing to his price tag and involvement on the court.

His ability to rake up treys lusciously at a tear away rate along with transition the ball from defence to ball articulately has seen him drop points with ease to see him canter our way into our Dream 11 side.
From Washington Wizards meanwhile we finally have the first bunch of players being brought in with the duo of Rui Hachimura and Issac Bonga being our picks for this one. If the side are to have any chance of countering the home side, the duo will need to incorporate its skill set in tandem and put in a tenacious display in defence, something we envision the two revelling us in.
DEN Vs WAS Dream11 Power Forward
Paul Millsap is being brought in by us from Denver Nuggets with the player being a permanent figure in the paint for his side. His position underneath the opposition’s pole has seen him always line himself up to receive passes and use his floating jump shots, floating shots to ensure the sides plays are transpired fruitfully into baskets.
The one player as well from the opposition meanwhile for us here with us moving in for Davis Bertans.
DEN Vs WAS Dream11 Centre
