NBA Preseason is a great way for athletes to get the feel of the game before the Regular Season. In this game, reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks will take on the rebuilding Oklahoma City Thunder. More information about MIL vs OKC Dream11 will be given below.
Milwaukee has not posted its starting five so far in the Preseason and the deep bench has relished the opportunity. The team has lost both games but that doesn’t prove anything, since Preseason is a more glorified version of scrimmages. Jordan Nwora has impressed scoring-wise while rookie Sandro Mamukelashivili has shown his rebounding prowess.
Oklahoma City Thunder’s rookie Josh Giddey has showcased a more-than-decent skillset in the only game of the preseason so far. The team is in rebuild mode and will welcome contributions to see who they can build around. The team may not win many games this season but Shai and Giddey form a promising backcourt.

Jordan Nwora has had two strong scoring games in a row
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been in a tremendous form.
Giddey led the team in points and rebounds during the last game. The #6 pick in the Draft this year shot 8-12 from the field. He can easily get between 30 to 35 minutes this year in an Oklahoma City that is focusing on the development of young talent.
Nwora led the team in scoring during the last game. He shot 6/10 from beyond the arc and made 11 out of his total 22 FG attempts. He can emerge as a significant backup this season for the defending champions. Can he get 20-25 minutes this season on an average? He can be selected in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario
Shai has been touted as the future of the Thunder. The young guard needs to perform minor tweaks as he is already an explosive scorer and playmaker. How will Gilgeous-Alexander perform in this rebuilding scenario? A talented Giddy will give him company in the backcourt.
Sandro led the team in rebounds during the last game. He has now come up with two strong rebounding games in a row while also exhibiting scoring skills. Can Sandro play as a backup to Brook Lopez or Giannis this season, considering the team has a substantial reserve in Portis?
Dort has shown in his young career that he can become a 10-15 PPG type of player. He has a reliable jumper and has shown the ability to score in bunches.
Elijah is coming off an impressive game. There is no doubt about his ability to put the ball in the basket and play strong. Can he carve out a role in this team? Highly doubtful since the backcourt reserves in Allen and Connaughton don’t leave much space.
Bazley had some moments of brilliance in the last season. If he becomes consistent then he can be a 15+ PPG scorer and an 8+ RPG Forward.
Will the guard make the final cut in the roster?
Led the team in offensive rebounds with 4 in the last game.
