HOU vs OKC Dream11 Match Preview | NBA Fantasy Teams, Line-Ups

Emotions will run high when Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder meet for a regular-season matchup in NBA at Toyota Center. It will be the first time that Chris Paul returns to Houston since exiting the franchise in the offseason, while Russell Westbrook also comes face to face for the first time against Thunder.

Rockets have been rather cold in their opening two games, with two close encounters where the team has left a lot to be desired from their defense and James Harden’s overall contribution.

But Rockets escaped with a win in their last match after beating New Orleans Pelicans 126-123 at Toyota Center. Russell Westbrook had another triple-double of his career with 28 points, 13 assists, and 10 rebounds, with the numbers putting him 2nd on All-Time triple-double list, behind only Oscar Robertson.

Oklahoma City Thunder also recorded their first win of the current season following a 120-92 blow out win over Golden State Warriors.

OKC dominated from the off, never trailing in the game and ended the first half with a 33 points lead at 7037. Thunder kept their offense at the same level, though their defense faltered a bit, the hosts were never in trouble. Not even a bit.

Next up for them is a trip to Houston as they take on fellow Western Conference rival Houston Rockets.

Captain options and Dream11 tips:

James Harden and Russell Westbrook are the obvious choices from Rockets. Harden clocked more than 35 points per game last season, breaking a 30-year-old record in the process, while Westbrook is a complete package.

From Thunder, Chris Paul, Dennis Schroder, and Danilo Gallinari make very good options.

That said, packing all the aforementioned players into your team is almost impossible as the players are priced high and you are guaranteed to run out of points.

But the bench is the option. Players like Nerlens Noel, Terrance Ferguson, Austin Rivers, and Hamidou Diallo can be astute options.


Likely squads for this match:

Houston Rockets:

Thabo Sefolosha, Clint Capela, Tyson Chandler, Gary Clark, Eric Gordon, James Harden, Isaiah Hartenstein, Danuel House Jr., Ben McLemore, Austin Rivers, P.J. Tucker, Russell Westbrook, Chris Clemons

Oklahoma City Thunder:

Chris Paul, Dennis Schroder, Steven Adams, Danilo Gallinari, Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, Darius Bazley, Deonte Burton, Hamidou Diallo, Terrance Ferguson, Mike Muscala, Abdel Nader, Nerlend Noel, Justin Patton
