GSW vs OKC Dream11 Team Prediction NBA Projections, Fantasy Basketball Picks for Warriors vs Thunder, 7 May

Share

Warriors vs Thunder Fantasy NBA: The Golden State Warriors will enter the game after losing to the Pelicans despite a 37 points outburst by Stephen Curry. On the other hand, the Oklahoma City Thunder will hit the floor after losing to the Kings despite a 24 points outing by Darius Bazley. More information about GSW vs OKC Dream11 will be given here.

Warriors’ season: Curry’s exploits need no mention and he has indeed set the NBA world on fire racking up 30 points+ performances in a crazy manner. Although the Warriors have struggled to even get to the .500 mark throughout the season, they can turn the heat up once the Play-in tournament begins to decide the final sports for the NBA Playoffs. The team lacks depth at the Center spot and the bench appears thin too. They are situated at the 9th spot in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.

Thunder’s season: Oklahoma’s performance this season doesn’t come as much of a surprise, a young squad full of youth and inexperience, their hopes to have an improved record got lost when their ace Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went down with an injury and was ruled out for the season. Though the team is extinguished by most teams in the league, they do have some young talent in Bazley, Brown, Dort, Roby, and Maledon.

GSW vs OKC Dream11 NBA Scores, Fantasy Picks

Stephen Curry
PPG: 31.5
APG: 5.7
RPG: 5.6
SPG: 1.2
TPG: 3.4
Projected Fantasy Points: 57
Even the most casual NBA fan must know that Curry has been tearing it apart on the offensive end this season. While he doesn’t have a roster that can generate much offense on its own, he has been unhinged and has had a record-breaking season. The 3-pt phenomenon is relentless and has averaged 37 PPG since April, with more to come. He is a terrific option for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.

Andrew Wiggins
PPG: 18.3
RPG: 4.8
SPG: 1.0
BPG: 1.0
TPG: 1.8
PFP: 35
Wiggins has been tough to evaluate the player, while he has not hit the expectations laid upon him, he is a gifted scorer. However, he continues to be part of teams that are below the .500 mark and that kind of environment can impact him as a player. All said and done, Andrew has been a consistent second-option for the Warriors and has been healthy too throughout the season.

Darius Bazley
PPG: 13.7
RPG: 7.4
TPG: 2.2
PFP: 32
Bazley has given the Thunder a promising outlook at the Forward position. He is in a position to build up a career with a rebuilding franchise and he has taken advantage of the situation so far. He is averaging 18.8 PPG since April.

Luguentz Dort:
PPG: 14.1
RPG: 3.7
TPG: 1.5
PFP: 29
Dort is an up-and-coming player who has a mature head and can avail the opportunity to develop with a rebuilding team. He provides decent scoring at Forward spot and has averaged 15.8 PPG for the last 5 games.

GSW vs OKC Dream11 Sleeper Picks

Draymond Green:  PPG: 6.7    APG: 8.7     RPG: 7.1    SPG: 1.7      TPG: 3.0
PFP: 36
Green has been an All-star in the League and performs the job of playmaking, rebounding, and defense to the Warriors. He has averaged 2.2 SPG since April while also racking up 8 RPG.

Moses Brown:  PPG: 8.4    RPG: 8.6     PFP: 27
Brown has taken advantage of the opportunities offered to him and has provided both offense and rebounding, while he has shown promise on the defensive end. He is averaging 11 RPG for the last 5 games.

Jordan Poole: 10.9 PPG     PFP: 14
Jordan is a decent backup PG who can put points in a hurry and has carved out a role with the Warriors.

Isaiah Roby:  PPG: 9.0    RPG: 5.8     TPG: 1.9     PFP: 19
Kent Bazemore: PPG: 6.7   RPG: 3.4     PFP: 18
