Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder
NBA Post Season
Utah Jazz lead the series 3-2
UTA VS OKC DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Oklahoma City Thunder find themselves 2-3 behind in this 7-Game NBA Playoffs series and now aim to stave off elimination when they travel to Salt Lake City to take on Utah Jazz in the game six.
Thunder headed to the game-5 knowing a defeat would leave all their dreams shattered and would eliminate them from NBA playoffs. At the half-time, all their nightmares were hovering over their head as they were left chasing the game by a massive 15 points. The form and the momentum of both the teams also pointed towards the exit for Oklahoma.
However, Russell Westbrook and Paul George refused to give up despite facing an insurmountable looking task. Both the superstars dropped 79 out of Thunder’s 107 points as Oklahoma beat Jazz 107-99 in the game five. The job is still far from done and it’s Westbrook’s team who are under more pressure to deliver rather than Jazz who are riding high on the brilliance of rookie Donovan Mitchell. He has nothing to prove just yet while the likes of Westbrook and George have everything to lose if they bow out of NBA playoffs at this stage against the underdogs Utah Jazz.
Meanwhile, the hosts Utah will be cursing only themselves for their massive failures in the last game. At one point, they were a massive 25 points ahead against Thunder, and everything seemed to go their way in that match. But a 2nd half meltdown saw Jazz scoring just 43 points and they ended up losing the game.
Donovan Mitchell has said publicly that the series won’t be heading into the game-7 and it’s time that Jazz match their words with the performance in this match.

UTA VS OKC DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
Thabo Sefolosha played just 38 games in the regular season, and the 33-year-old Small-Forward is still out injured due to the Knee-Injury. So he won’t be playing in this match and is a no-to-guy for every NBA fantasy team lover. Whilst, David Stockton, and Tony Bradley have been listed under Game-Time decision.
Oklahoma City Thunder:
Andre Roberson averaged 5.0 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in the regular season. He hasn’t played even a single game in the postseason.

UTA VS OKC DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Some players are special and both Russell Westbrook and Paul George certainly fall into that category. However, long after they are retired they will be known by the number of medals and the trophies they won. Up until now, Westbrook and George have won nothing and need an NBA trophy in their cabinet to reflect their true potential.
The Game 6 pits them against a situation they have been against before. Oklahoma City Thunder face an elimination and need to win this game to force a decider which will be played at their home.
Thunder won the last game and have the momentum, so we are backing them to win this game.
