ATL vs CHI Dream11: The WNBA’s All-Star game has gone past us and now we are in an integral part of the season. In this part of the season, teams are running out of time to make a comeback and if they don’t fix their woes, they will either fall out of the Playoffs race or end up in the lower rankings. How will Atlanta Dream respond when they clash against the Chicago Sky.

The Dream has had an up-and-down season but they are playing much better than the last season. They have 10 wins and 12 losses. They will come into this game after losing to the Mystics 66:85 in one of their worst performances of the season. Meanwhile, the Chicago Sky surely look like the defending champions and their campaign has been in incredible flow. The Sky has won 16 games and has lost six games. In their last game, they defeated the Fever 93:84 as Emma Messeman picked up 20 points. Can the Sky get it done against the Dream?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Sky’s solid season

The fact that the Sky has built an even deeper team than the last season rings alarm bells for the rest of the league. You can have anyone among Candace, Courtney, Emma, and Copper leading the scoring column one night, and even if a couple of them end up scoring in one figure during one night, the others can pick up the slack. Apart from that Quigley, Stevens, and Gardner form a perfect complementary trio meanwhile this team has a treasure trove of rebounders, defenders, playmakers, scorers, and all-around talents. Surely looking primed to at least make a Finals trip?

Dream needs more consistency

The Dream has built a much better lineup compared to last season but they have some big-time issues. First, their offense isn’t good enough to keep them afloat most nights but their defense is rock solid. The thing is that the return of Tiffany Hayes has bolstered the team’s offense in multiple areas but their scoring woes are difficult to keep up with. The team’s starting unit keeps shifting too which has been a problem. Rookie Rhyne Howard has shown tremendous defense but the WNBA defense has asked her to adjust her offensive game a bit.
