ATL vs NYL Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Atlanta Dream vs New York Liberty

Share

ATL vs NYL Dream11: We are 0the midway into the point of the WNBA and we have already learned what players are going to participate in the All-Star game. With regulars like Nneka Ogwumike, A’ja Wilson, Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird, and Sylvia Fowles and some first-timers like Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, and Sabrina Ionescu, we are going to have an exciting game for sure. In this game, the Atlanta Dream is going to take New York Liberty.

The Dream has had a much better start to the season than they have had in some years and they look like an entirely different roster set-up this season and eight wins and eight losses start is surely a promising one. Rookie Rhyne Howard has helped the matters on both ends and the Dream look primed for a decent Postseason run. On the other hand, the Liberty has recovered from a horrendous 1 win and seven losses start, winning six of their last nine games. In their last game, the Liberty defeated the Sun 81:77 as five players scored in double-digits. Can the Dream get something going here?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Dream’s defense has been tight

The Dream may not look like a deep Postseason team but one thing is for sure, their defense has hit big strides and with Rhyne in the scene, they have become stricter on the perimeter. The play of Cheyenne Parker has been impressive on both ends of the floor. The rest of the unit has been either injured or has lacked cohesion but there have been some surprise high-yielding performers like Durr and Caldwell. Before their injuries, Kirsty Wallace was emerging as a wonderful rookie two-way player whereas Erica Wheeler was getting comfortable with the system.

Liberty has gotten in a groove

The Liberty were solely dependent upon Sabrina Ionescu having 20+ points nights to pull through on the offensive end but things have changed since then. The inclusion of Marinne Johannes has been a huge boost as she not only gives great shooting but can also act as a playmaker. Natasha Howard has been a huge factor on the offensvie end and has helped the matters. Meanwhile, the bench has looked deep with the likes of Xan Hu, Sam Whitecomb, and Didi Richards which have brought inside scoring, long-range shooting, and defense.
