WAS Vs ORL Dream11 : Orlando Magic look to make the most of their encounter against a lapses filled Washington Wizards side today.
Currently in 8th position in the Eastern Conference, Orlando Magic know if they are going to have any chance of challenging for the division title at the least, they need to come out of today’s encounter against Washington Wizards with a win to their name. The side are up against an opposition they are going in as outright favourites, a moniker which has hardly been accorded to them this entire season.
It’s all down due to the precarious and perilous position the side find themselves slumped in at the moment with the 8-11 record seeing them languishing in the points tally. The side have managed to win just twice in their previous five encounters but the 100-96 win against GSW the last time around is bound to have served as a shot in the arm, one the team will be looking to build on come today’s contest.
And up against a Washington Wizards who have managed to muster up a mere 6 wins in 18 encounters, the visiting side will be quietly confident of making it two wins in a row today. They are up against a Wizard side who are coming into this one with two straight defeats including a 150-125 flaying against LA Clippers. It was not just the defeat but the manner it came about in which will buoy Orlando Magic with the Wizards thumped, routed and trounced defensively in their foregone contest.

WAS Vs ORL Dream11 Point Guard
With 5 assists per game, D.J. Austin is going to become an instant pick for us for today’s encounter. In an otherwise despondent Orlando Magic side, the point guard has not showed tenacity to wage a lone battle but has kept traversing his way past defences with astute attacking layups and assists.
Elsewhere the one player comes in from Wahington Wizards as well for the day with us venturing in with Isaiah Thomas as our point guard from the unit. The player has set a stemmed with us some pleasing to the eye displays, one which have seen him lay down the marker as the mainstay of his side’s gameplan.
WAS Vs ORL Dream11 Shooting Guard
Our reason for choosing Terrence Ross from Orlando Magic was a straightforward and simple one. The shooting guard is going to be up against a defence which shipped 150 points the last time around, a side which comprises of a paper thin defence. It’s a backline which will allow Ross to open up the zone and line up a spree of treys from outside the circle for himself today to make him an instant choice for this encounter.
WAS Vs ORL Dream11 Small Forward
Despite this being the most heavily packed of our Dream 11 side with the three names being inducted in our setup for the day, there was one name w ho stood tall among his counterparts for the clash. The small forward has 19.2 ppg, the highest out of any player from Orlando Magic, someone who rotations and quick ball movements have made for tantalising viewing.
Elsewhere from the home side we have a partnership come in for us, two players whose vibrant and enigmatic showings have seen the side show the stomach for a fight recently. Anything meaningful in attack has stemmed from this duo, two quirky players whose radiant showings have sparked a glimmer of revival in the side.
WAS Vs ORL Dream11 Power Forward
Davis Bertans comes in for us over here solely due to his dual nature as a player. At a time when his side have been wiped the floor with defensively, the player has emerged as a reliable performer, someone who has tired to bridge the gap with his steals and blocks to see us make him our pick for the day.
WAS Vs ORL Dream11 Centre
With Vucevic injured, Mohamed Bamba has seen his role being elevated to make him an excellent pick for this impending tie. At just 6 credits and a selection of 7%, the player could end up acting as a major difference maker to our side today, someone who has positioned himself articulately under the paint to drop points.
Fournier will be representing our side as the star player for this one.
