TOR vs WAS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Two winning streaks will be on the line when Washington Wizards play host to Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors in an NBA match at Capital One Arena, in Washington D.C. on Sunday night (IST).
Though Milwaukee Bucks were without Giannis Antetokounmpo in the match, it was still a big coup and showed what Washington Wizards can do on a Basketball court. They won 113-106 at Capital One Arena and registered their 2nd consecutive victory, 5th in the last 10. As things stand in the Eastern Conference, Wizards are sitting at 10th with an 18-25 record.
Toronto Raptors, on the other hand, went back to the top of the pile in the east after Bucks’ negative result and their own victory which they got against Brooklyn Nets. Kawhi Leonard scored a team-high 20 points and 11 rebounds in the match, while Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka scored 16 and 14 points respectively in the match. It was Raptors’ fourth straight victory and 7th in the last 10 heading into their next encounter.
Regular Season Record-
Washington Wizards: W-18, L-25
Toronto Raptors: W-32, L-12
Players to watch out for:
Bradley Beal – One warrior may not win a war for an army but Bradley Beal certainly holds sway over his team’s performance. His stats and consistency can be at par with most players in NBA at this moment. The 25-year-old is racking up points at an average of 24.4 per game this season. The 2012 1st round pick is accumulating a decent amount of assists and rebounds per game as well.
Trevor Ariza – With John Wall missing out with an injury, we have selected Trevor Ariza as our 2nd most important player in Wizards’ rank at the moment. The 33-year-old warhorse scored 20 points in the last game, which shows that he has in him to shine at the big stage, even late in his career.
Kawhi Leonard – Scored 20 points in the last game against Brooklyn Nets, which falls below his season average of 27.3 points per game. The former San Antonio Spurs superstar has been used cautiously by Raptors this season considering the 2014 NBA finals MVP has missed a big chunk of games in the past two seasons. Leonard can outshine any player on his day.
Serge Ibaka – Another vital cog in the Raptors’ wheel is Serge Ibaka. The 29-year-old is averaging 16.1 points per game this season. His season high in 34 points which he scored against Los Angles Lakers.
Pascal Siakam is another player who is accumulating good numbers this season and most of the times goes under the radar.
TOR vs WAS Dream11 TEAM NEWS:
Injured – The hosts will be without three key players for the match against Raptors.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Toronto Raptors are once again hitting the strides. At the moment, they look a team at par with most NBA teams. But Wizards are in good form as well and could cause an upset.
