Description: OKC Vs WAS Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Wizards emerge as the only team in the Eastern Conference to be left without a win till now
Washington Wizards just can’t seem to catch a break at the moment. Ever since the return of NBA, the side has been nothing but a mere pushover in the competition, a tram battered and trounced by everyone they have come across.
From having an outside but fair enough chance of making it into the playoffs to losing all semblance, the seeding round has been the Wizards’ worst period of this campaign. At a team when the team should have gotten its house in order and looked to have bridge the gap between itself and 8th seed, the side has gone on a wayward spiral, a predicament well documented in their 117-108 defeat against the Pelicans.
The five defeats on the spin see the team’s sortie having come to an early. The only thing the team has to scour for is lost pride in its culminating outings this season, pride they’ll be looking to scrounge at long last when they go clashing heads with Oklahoma City Thunder.
OKC Vs WAS Dream11 Probable Winner
With Oklahoma City Thunder still capable of making way into fourth place in the Western Conference, today’s encounter comes bearing with it colossal ramifications for the club. They’ll push hard for a win today, knowing one would put them on level points with Houston Rockets.
And we envision them triumphing in their quest as well with the Wizards having little fuel in their tank to put on the stomach for a fight.

Dream 11 Picks
Chris Paul has been a newly invented man since the onset of the seeding round. Whilst his calibre needed no introduction earlier has well, he’s now taken on a whole new identity with a man on a mission looking to take his team into the playoffs round.
22.7 ppg and the 7.3 rpg for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander meant he was going to be a must have pick for us today. The shooting guard has been in impeccable touch all season long to make a real inroad into not only his side but the league’s ranks as well.
Where we are on the subject of pathbreaking season, we just can’t leave out Luguentz Dort. The player has grabbed the opportunity accorded to him since the league’s resumption with both hands to hammer down a place in the team’s starting rotations owing to his ability to shoot at a high conversion rate from the deep.
Jerome Robinson will become the first name to be indulged in by us from Washington Wizards with the player’s scrimmages on the court translating into a string of points in the paint.
In a side yet to register a win since the league’s reputation, there is hardly anything to scrounge for on the positive side. However, Troy Brown has managed to provide some relief and solace to an otherwise laggard setup with the small forward revelling the side’s ardent supporters in a rampant 22-10 double-double the last time around.
He’s only featured as a substitute for his side lately but Hamidou Diallo is fast pushing for a regular spot. The player’s scrimmages on the court have translated into imperious displays with his offhanded shots and jump shots serving the side well.
Up against a Washington Wizards defence which is on a never ending wayward spiral, Oklahoma could end up giving a bevy of lesser played names time out in the middle. And someone who can benefit from that is Darius Bazley to add to the 12 points his reverse scoops earned him the last time around.
The fulcrum of both his side’s attack and defence, Thomas Bryant has been a sparkling light for the Wizards this season. The player has stood amongst his counterparts owing to his nous of spin and slams and rebounds, ones which have seen him leave the opposition in disarray.
The nonchalant ease with which he’s indulged his side in game winning displays inside the bubble see Paul be our star player while Thomas is the pro player.
