OKC vs DEN Dream11: It’s an All-Western Conference matchup in the NBA as Oklahoma City Thunder entertain Denver Nuggets at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Saturday morning (IST). The Thunder have exceeded expectations this season as they are sitting comfortably in the Western Conference playoff positions, holding a positive return on the season despite missing the likes of Russell Westbrook and Paul George in the off-season.
With a 38-17 record this season, Denver Nuggets are sitting second in the Western Conference heading into this match. They lost the last game to the Los Angeles Lakers, so Nikola Jokic and Co must be extra motivated to return to winning ways here.
