OKC vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Oklahoma City Thunder can level the series when they play Portland Trail Blazers in game-4 of the first round playoff match at Chesapeake Energy Arena, in Downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States, on Monday morning (IST).

This has been a pretty strange season for Russell Westbrook. For a player of his calibre and talent, the inconsistency is just not acceptable. And he has been intelligent enough to accept this fact that he has let his team and teammates downs this season far too many times.

Came the post-season and Game 2, the ghost came back. Westbrook was left seething and with yet another apologetic remarks in his post-match conference.

“Starting with myself, I’ve got to play better,” Westbrook said. “And tonight, the loss, I’m going to take full responsibility for tonight. Because the way I played was unacceptable. I’m going to be better.”

And he was better. Acceptable in game-3 as Oklahoma City Thunder opened their account int eh postseason with an emphatic 120-108 win at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Paul George scored 22 points and had six rebounds and assists respectively. While Jerami Grant and Dennis Schroder performed way better than the first two games.

Regular Season Record-
Oklahoma City Thunder:
W-49, L-33
Portland Trail Blazers:
W-53, L-29

Players to watch out for:

Oklahoma City Thunder:
Paul George – He is averaging 26.5 in the playoffs, but the former Indiana Pacers superstar is far from unlocking his very best. The nagging injuries are the main hurdle to why he has failed to rekindle the form he showed before the All-Star. A fit Paul is a deadly George. But expect him to play here.

@Twitter

Russell Westbrook – This is a strange season for him. He broke many records and remains the only player this season to average a triple-double. Still, the consistency he showed in the 2016-17 season, which fetched him an MVP, looks far fetched at the moment. In fact, this is his worst season in terms of shooting from beyond the arc. Thunder are facing a 0-2 deficit, and you can just be sure that Westbrook may bring his A game in this match.

Portland Trail Blazers:

Damian Lillard – One of the league’s smartest guards, Damian Lillard was always primed for big things. For he is a talent which is at par with most of his peers. The way he has started his postseason, it feels that his time has finally come. He is looking way more dangerous than he ever was and looks pretty much unstoppable.

In the first two games, he racked up 29 and 30 points respectively.

@Twitter

C.J.McCollum – In terms of scoring, he is Portland’s 2nd best player this season, averaging 21.0 points per game. But the postseason is getting the best out of him as well. The 27-year-old has scored 33 and 24 points in the last two games.

OKC vs POR Dream11 TEAM NEWS:
Oklahoma City Thunder:

Injured – Thunder will be without two players as Hamidou Diallo is out with an elbow injury, while Andre Roberson remains a long-term injury absentee with a knee injury.
