TOR VS OKC NBA REGULAR SEASON DREAM 11 BASKETBALL PREDICTION FANTASY TEAM NEWS
Toronto Raptors vs Oklahoma City Thunder
NBA Regular Season
TOR VS OKC MATCH PREVIEW:
If you are a Basketball fan and loves watching NBA even if the timing doesn't suit your schedule, then this is the game you can't imagine to miss. After all, it pits this season's wonders Toronto Raptors against Russell Westbrook led Oklahoma City Thunder at Air Canada Center, Toronto.
Nobody expected Toronto to be leading Eastern Conference ahead of the teams such as Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers at this stage. But they are and that is because they are playing as a team this season.
Their best player in terms of points per game is DeMar DeRozan who is averaging 23.2 points and is the 11th best in that regard. Also, there are only five players in Toronto's team who are averaging in double digits in points this season. So the points are sparsely distributed amongst Raptors' players and that is a very dangerous aspect that makes them such a threatening outifit.
Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, are 4th in the Western Conference, just five games better than Los Angeles Clippers at ninth. So the playoff position is still not intact for the Thunder. But that shouldn't be an issue for the Oklahoma based franchise as they possess one of the most dangerous players and the current MVP Russell Westbrook in their ranks. The 29-year-old point-guard is averaging 25.2 points per game while his contribution to his teammates is the best in NBA this season as he is averaging 10.2 assists per game.
Form of the teams-
Toronto Raptors are on an 11 game winning streak heading into this match. This is the second current best streak in NBA.
