OKC vs DAL Dream11: Oklahoma City Thunder have exceeded the expectations this season, and continue to record signature wins here and there despite trading away Paul Gorge and Russell Westbrook in the off-season. Thunder though earned some precious future first-round picks from those two eye-catching trades, that secures future to some extent, the current roster is coming good, making the Thunder look like a team bound for the playoffs.
The surprise package has been Shai Geilgeous-Alexander, though whose talent was never under question, the increase in his product in his sophomore season has been somewhat surprising. Thunder will hope to get the best out of their current roster and remain relevant in the playoff battle.
Another team who has hit more gears this season is Dallas Mavericks. They are currently sitting at 5th on the Western Conference points table, only two games behind second-place Denver Nuggets.
They are being led by Luka Doncic, who continues to rack up insane numbers, and is being supported by Kristaps Porzingis.
