OKC vs POR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Portland Trail Blazers can win the first round playoff series when they host Oklahoma City Thunder in game-5 at Moda Center, in Portland, Oregon, United States, on Wednesday morning (IST).

Russell Westbrook is going through one of the worst faces of his professional careers. He is blowing cold more often than not, failing to help his team in the first round series against the Portland Trail Blazers.

He has been shooting terribly in the series so far, and the fourth game was no aberration. For the 2017 MVP missed the first 10 shots he made and ended the match with 14 points on 5-for-21 shooting.

Damian Lillard, on the other hand, looks like an underrated and less appreciated player if we compare to how much attention and limelight other NBA superstars enjoy for similar or less impactful displays.

He dominated the backcourt alongside his equally impressive partner CJ McCollum.

Lillard ended the match with 24 points, 8 assists and 3 rebounds, while McCollum scored 27 points, and had 4 rebounds and 3 assists as well.

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

Players to watch out for:

Portland Trail Blazers:
Damian Lillard – He produced a masterclass in the last game, getting the better of Thunder’s elite Russell Westbrook to orchestrate his team’s massive win. He scored 24 points in game-4, adding 8 assists and 3 rebounds to his efforts as well. Interestingly, this was his lowest score in four playoff games this season.

CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard

CJ McCollum – Together with Lillard, CJ McCollum is Blazers’ main man. It was his performance in the first half which gave Blazers a four-point advantage going into the break. The 27-year-old is averaging 26.3 points per game in the playoffs.

Oklahoma City Thunder:
Paul George – He had a solid game-4, scoring 32 points, along with 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Paul George is the best offensive player in Thunder’s team and is the highest scorer in the squad as well. The former Indiana Pacers superstar has averaged 28.0 points per game in the 2018-19 regular season. He also scored 32 points in the last match.

Russell Westbrook – Thunder could really do with the 2017 version of Russell Westbrook. At the moment, he looked way too short of the standard he can play. Certainly, from outside the pain, he is having a horrible post-season. But he can be better, and one of the best in the world on any given day. He is a triple-double king after all and remains the only player to do so this season.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Pundits and the fans backed Oklahoma City Thunder to get the better of Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. But it’s not happening. Thunder are being too soft in possession, while Westbrook seems to have a plethora of problems. Nothing is going away.

But Thunder and Westbrook, both showed what they can do in game-3 and we back them to wake up for a season-saving encounter at Moda Center.
