OKC vs UTA DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Oklahoma City Thunder will be aiming to get back to winning ways when they host Utah Jazz in an NBA match at Chesapeake Energy Arena, in Oklahoma City, on Tuesday morning (IST).

Oklahoma City Thunder:
The last match was a timely reminder that sport is a level playing ground and complacency is something which can ruin the whole season of any team, irrespective of the profile. Many saw rudiments of that dangerous words in Chelsea’s win over Manchester City and it could be the reason why the mighty, the talented Oklahoma City Thunder fell to one of the worst performing teams in NBA this season; the Chicago Bulls.

With just five wins all season, Bulls hosted Thunder at United Center. The visitors had the form, having won a staggering 16 times in the last 20 games, and the superstar players – Paul George and Russell Westbrook – to condemn the hosts towards the obscurity in yet another game.

But for the first time in the eight games and certainly the first under new coach Jim Boylen, Bulls played like a power and outmuscled the talent on offer at Thunder’s disposal.

The loss, however, didn’t dent Oklahoma’s ultimate target this season as they are 2nd in Western Conference, just two wins away from Golden State Warriors, having played three fewer games.

Utah Jazz:
Before this game takes place at Chesapeake Energy Arena, Utah Jazz will be one the road to play San Antonio Spurs. The last meeting between these two franchises ended in a most straightforward result for the Jazz as Donovan Mitchell and company finished Spurs by 34 points. However, despite San Antonio’s struggle this season, we are not expecting a repeat of that performance from either team.

Utah won their last two matches, including a big 118-91 win over last season’s leaders Houston Rockets. Rudy Gobert was sent packing after just 3 minutes into the game for making two technical fouls early in the game. The 26-year-old is the only player to be ejected from the court after just 3 minutes in the last 15 NBA seasons, the last being Andre Drummond.

Regular Season Record-
Oklahoma City Thunder: W-16, L-8
Utah Jazz: W-13, L-13

Players to watch out for:
Oklahoma City Thunder:
Russell Westbrook – The 2017 NBA MVP’s season has been marred by too many injury setbacks, a reason why his average is hovering way below than his usual high standards. The 30-year-old is still going for good numbers this season, averaging 22.8 points per game. He is known for dropping triple-doubles in the games.
Paul George – The former Indiana Pacers superstar has taken over the mantle of team’s highest scorer this season, as he is dropping 24.0 points per game. The 28-year-old forward scored his season-high 47 points against Brooklyn Nets just a few days ago.

Utah Jazz:
Donovan Mitchell – He is the only star to average in the 20s for Utah Jazz this season. However, there are elements of inconsistency in his game at the moment, and at 22, that’s acceptable. But he can certainly explode in games and should be in your NBA fantasy team.
Rudy Gobert – He has had two scores in the 20s in the last four games. The 26-year-old is known for doing the dirty work for the team, breaking up the play and winning the rebounds Gobert’s cup of tea. For the season, his average is 15.0 points per game.
