NOP vs OKC Dream11 Match Prediction

NOP vs OKC Dream11: Having lost the last two games, Oklahoma City Thunder will be looking to return to winning ways when they visit fellow Western Conference rivals New Orleans Pelicans for a regular-season match to be played at Smoothie King Center on Friday morning (IST).
Pelicans know this is an important game for them and they are hard-pressed more for a win, despite the OKC losing the last two games. The reason being the both team’s current position and record at this moment. The Thunder are 7th but have a huge 10-game advantage over Pelicans in the playoff race, while the Pelicans are 11th in the Western Conference standings and can’t afford to drop games if they are to keep their post-season hopes alive and kicking.

  • Ingram is averaging almost 25 points per game this season and can be good with his defence as well.
  • Williamson has been terrific since he made his debut a couple of weeks ago.
  • Jrue Holiday is someone who can fetch good points due to his two-way play.
  • From Thunder, the safest choice is Chris Paul and Dennis Schroder, while Danilo Gallinari should be considered as well.
