Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder
NBA Post Season
Utah Jazz lead the series 2-1
UTA VS OKC DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
After winning the first game of the series, Oklahoma City Thunder lost two straight games and now find themselves 2-1 behind in this 7-Game NBA Playoffs series.
Utah Jazz’s defense improved in the last two games, stopping Thunder to just 95 and 102 in the match two and three respectively. But Thunder still have reigning MVP Russell Westbrook in their ranks who averaged triple-double during the regular season. His scoring may have taken a dip in the post-season, but the 29-year-old Point-Guard is still averaging 20.7 points per game.
For Thunder, the biggest problem is the distribution of points, Only three players in Thunder’s ranks are scoring points in double digits in the post-season, while there are five players in Utah Jazz’s squad who are averaging more than 10 points in this playoff series.
Jazz are also beating Thunder in the rebounds chart. In the 2nd game, they won the Rebound count by 56 to 46 and 48 to 33 in the third game. But the three-point statistics is where OKC gets past Jazz. Westbrook and Co are shooting at 42.4% per game, while Utah are converting just 36.3% shots from beyond the arc.

UTA VS OKC DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The Battle that every Basketball fan will be eagerly waiting for is the one that will be fought between Russell Westbrook and Ricky Rubio. You could sense the enormity of the occasion by the remarks of the holder of the MVP, Russell Westbrook, who claimed that Rubio won’t be scoring another Triple-Double in this series.
But Jazz are the team to beat now after winning two straight games in this series and Westbrook has chosen the worst of the times to have a dip in his form. The success in this series for Oklahoma City Thunder solely depends on how both Paul George and Russell Westbrook fair in this game.
It’s been two games now and we think it’s the time for Westbrook to shine. We are backing an away win in this game.
