WAS vs HOU Dream11 Prediction : Washington Wizards turn to home comfort as they look to overturn their floundering form.
When East meets West today in NBA 2019-20, fireworks are bound to go off in this inter conference match which looks set to be an enthralling affair. When Western Conference’s Houston Rockets go visiting Eastern Conference’s Washington Wizards, this promises to be an encounter which will regale us in an intriguing brand of basketball, a humdinger of an affair which looks set to be a closely contested affair.
For Washington Wizards in particular, this is a contest which comes bearing with it gargantuan ramifications with the side currently caught in an impasse. Playing away from home hasn’t served fruitfully for the outfit who are currently languishing in 11th place in the Eastern Conference with the side subjected to two defeats in the opening three matches they have partaken in.
Apart from the 97-85 win over Oklahoma City Thunder, the side have failed to hang onto the barest of margins, slipping to close defeats, a run of form they’ll be looking to overhaul come today. What will give the side momentum is the way those previous defeats have shaped out for them with the side just about losing by the smallest of straws with their impeccable attacking combination serving well for them till now.
It’s a scenario which will suffice well for the side when they clash heads against a Houston Rockets side which has shipped in 117 points per encounter, a number which doesn’t bode well for their defensive organisation. Although they come into this encounter with two straight wins after their league opener defeat to Milwaukee Bucks, they are yet to win matches with conviction, ingredients which are set to make this impending clash a ripper of an affair.

WAS vs HOU Dream11 Team
Point guard Russell Westbrook is brought in y us in this facet with the player emerging as an integral component of his side’s sublime and illustrious framework of consummate success. While has dictated the play from the back, running the side’s plays by registering 10 assists per match, he’s also got himself on the end of 13 rebounds per fixture, ensuring possession has transitioned fruitfully into his side’s hands.
Justin Robinson comes into our side as well from Washington Wizards for this one with the player likely to get some time out in the middle today.
The team’s top scorer with 29 points per match, Houston Rockets’ James Harden makes an advent into our Dream 11 side for today’s encounter. He’s set himself outside the circle to find the zone and shoot down open treys with ease, fulfilling the task accorded to him by his side sublimely and up against a defensively paper thin side, he should add to his tally come today.
We are also getting our first player from the home side for this encounter with Garrison Mathews being selected by us.
We are getting in Danuel House from Houston Rockets for this encounter. The small forward has intertwined his skill set in both the facets of the game to only send down baskets from well beyond the circle but has moved inside it lusciously as well to segment his capabilities and bring in a slew of points for his side.
We continue with the picks from Houston Rockets, getting in their power forward P.K. Tucker for this tie. The side have struggled defensively, failing to block and screen the opposition but in Washington Wizards they are up against a paper thin side, one which has exposed its vulnerabilities in the attacking sorties which should see Tucker get some good rebounds and deflections today.
The two players come into our setup for this encounter with the one centre apiece representing us from either side. Both these players are quintessential to their side, names whose two toned natures as performers have seen them become pivotal parts of their side’s attacking plays.
With 10 rebounds per tie, we have Thomas Bryant come into our side from Washington Wizards, someone who’ll be asked today to latch onto the rebounds and try and craft quick break point for his side. From the opposition meanwhile we are choosing Clint Capela for today’s impending clash between the two sides.
Westbrook has been made our side’s star player for this tie.
