NOP vs OKC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Oklahoma City Thunder will be looking for their 5th consecutive win when they meet an out-of-form New Orleans Pelicans in a regular season NBA match at Smoothie King Center, in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Friday morning (IST).

Orlando Magic pulled many rabbits out of the hats in their big 118-88 win over New Orleans Pelicans. Not only the 30 points difference was something unexpected, but they also managed to thwart one of the best NBA players to the periphery of obscurity.

Believe it or not, Anthony Davis was on the court for 24 minutes and scored just 3 points. No wonder, in his post-match interview, he looked completely disgruntled and questioned his team’s hunger to win the games.

The loss was Pelicans’ 7th in the last 10 games, and are six games behind the NBA playoffs.

Paul George had another monstrous night, this time dropping a triple-double against Portland Trail Blazers as Oklahoma City Thunder win 120-111 at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The 28-year-old is in a devastating form at the moment as 10 of OKC’s last 12 games have seen George scoring more than 30 points.

Regular Season Record-
New Orleans Pelicans:
W-25, L-33
Oklahoma City Thunder:
W-37, L-19

Players to watch out for:

New Orleans Pelicans:
Anthony Davis –
The last match was an anomaly for all NBA fans. A player of Anthony Davis stature scoring just 3 points in a match, is just big let down. But we are sure that he will be back to his best because the 25-year-old is one of the best players of this generation. The 2012 1st round pick is averaging 28.5 points and 13.1 rebounds per game.
Jrue Holiday – Had a good game last time around, as he scored 16 points in a losing cause. The 28-year-old has been in good form of late, averaging in the 20s in the last 10 matches or so.

Oklahoma City Thunder:
Paul George –
The form he is in at the moment, and the number of points he is racking up, he is a serious candidate for the NBA MVP award. There is only one player who can match his stats in the last 10 games or so, and he is James Harden. So you can see how potent George is these days and is averaging 37 points per game in the last 10 matches.

Russell Westbrook – The 2017 NBA MVP may not be dropping points at a rate he is so used to, but the impact he is having on his team remains unparalleled. The 30-year-old is the only player this season to average triple-double and has recently broke Wilt Chamberlain’s long-standing consecutive triple-double record.
