This is going to be among the last games in the WNBA Regular Season. The seedings for the Playoffs still remain unclear. In this match, a struggling Atlanta Dream squad needs a top-notch Connecticut Sun outfit. More about ATL vs CON Dream11 will be provided here.
Atlanta plays a fast pace courtesy of Courtney Williams who likes to push it up the floor and hit transition pull-ups. Tiffany Hayes has hit form recently and has rained it from outside and also has made tough inside shots. However, the team will finish with the second-worst record in the league even if they win against the Sun and their defense becomes porous many a times.
Connecticut Sun is the best defensive team and allows around just 70 PPG. The team keeps it airtight courtesy of its lengthy and athletic players. The frontline of Bonner-Jonquel-Brionna executes patiently, while Bonner and Jonquel are superb shooters, Brionna can stack on boards and get second-chance opportunities. The team plays at the slowest pace but they can afford to do so considering the number of intelligent players they have in the squad.

*Points, Rebounds, and Assists from last game*
PPG: 16.5 RPG: 6.9 APG: 4.1 SPG: 1.1
Courtney leads this team in points, rebounds, and assists. She likes to get early in the offense and her main weapon is her pull-up jumper around the free-throw area. Courtney can also nail inside drives while being an effective long-distance shooter.
PPG: 17.0 RPG: 11.3 SPG: 1.3 BPG: 1.2
Jonquel is the ace of her team and has an incredibly gifted frame that allows her to lead the league in rebounds per game. Jones is a terrific three-point shooter but she can also get inside and finish at a high clip. Jonquel uses post-moves and a face-up game as well. She is also one of the best defensive players in the league.
PPG: 15.3 RPG: 3.1 APG: 3.1 SPG: 1.6
Tiffany has silky-smooth handles for a forward and like Courtney, likes to run up and down the floor. Hayes can pour fire from beyond the arc and she is also a highly talented finisher at the rim. What makes Hayes special is her poise and lately she has played some high-quality ball.
PPG: 15.6 RPG: 6.6 APG: 3.3 SPG: 1.5
Bonner is a terrific forward who has a lot of pep in her step. She likes to shoot it from outside, as far as thirty feet, but perhaps her specialty is hitting shots through drives. She is also an incredible rebounder and can also dish out assists. Her defensive prowess makes Sun a complete defensive unit up-front.
PPG: 7.9 RPG: 6.5 SPG: 1.2 BPG: 1.0
Monique likes to drive to the hoop and moves well without the ball. However, her main job is to gobble up boards and play defense inside. Monique can be a difference-maker when she is clicking with her offensive game.
PPG: 14.7 RPG: 7.2 SPG: 1.3
Jones is a superb inside player and has had a wonderful season. She uses brute strength along with finesse to get inside finishes and she is also incredible at getting offensive rebounds and finishing. Basically, Brionna is a classic big who can be tough on both sides of the floor.
PPG: 10.7 APG: 4.1 SPG: 1.3
