  • CHI vs CON Dream11

    CHI vs CON Dream11: The WNBA’s Semis are in full force and the Games 1 were won by away teams and both the higher ranked teams were faced with a ton of questions. Has Chicago Sky found their answers after losing Game 1?

    In Game 1, the Sun came with a huge burst of energy on the defensive end and left the Sky bamboozled. They won 69:63 and except for Candace Parker who put up a historical statline and the consistent Kahleah Copper, the rest of the players were smothered by the elite Sun defense. The Sun show awfully too but they will come with a huge boost in the game.

    Host: Chicago Sky
    Visitors: Connecticut Sun
    Match Timing: 1 September, @ 05:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Wintrust Arena

    WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Sky knows how to come back 

    This is the second time in the second straight series that the Sky find themselves down 0-1. But last time, their opponent was the inconsistent squad of Liberty, this time around they have a real job at their hand while taking on the highly charged-up Sun, a team that knows how to disrupt the best laid offensive plans.

    In Game 1, the Sky shot around 35%, six players shot below 30% while Copper and Parker shot in the excess of 40%. It wasn’t like that the Sun were amazing from the field, they shot just around 37% and Bonner and Williams combined for 7/28 from the field but the team defense was amazing. The rebounding battle played a huge role as the Sun extracted a 47:36 advantage. This was a physical start to the series and the Sun has bodies that can strike hard and also absorb contact well. But the Sky’s depth is well-suited to undertake comebacks.

    WNBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

    Alyssa Thomas(CON)
    Points: 12
    Rebounds: 10
    Assists: 07
    Steals: 01
    Built like a rock, the above numbers completely showcase how dominant Alyssa can be in multiple facets of the game. She can be in for another stacked game, and can be in 10-16 points, 7-11 rebounds, and 5-8 assists range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-45

    Candace Parker(CHI)
    Points: 19
    Rebounds: 17
    Assists: 05
    Blocks: 06
    Steals: 04
    Candace turned in a night to remember but even that wasn’t enough to bring a dub for the team. She can be expected to rise up again and I expect a 12-18 points, 10-14 rebounds, 4-7 assists, and 2-4 blocks/steals range here. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Prediction scenario.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-44

    Jonquel Jones(CON)
    Points: 12
    Rebounds: 09
    Assists: 00
    Steals: 02

    Jonquel has looked rather conservative with her shot selection throughout the season but continues to supply top-notch scoring, rebounding, and defense. I believe she will be in 12-16 points, 8-11 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-35

    Courtney Vandersloot(CHI)
    Points: 05
    Rebounds: 03
    Assists: 02
    Elite perimeter defense from the Sun limited Sloot’s production but I expect the veteran to bounce back and put up big numbers. I believe she will be in 15+ points, 6+ assists, and 1-3 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-41

    DeWanna Bonner(CON)
    Points: 15
    Rebounds: 09
    Assists: 05
    Steals: 03
    Although a 4/16 shooting night is awful, Bonner was a huge factor in other aspects, making some much-needed plays down the line. I believe she will be in 10-14 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-32

    Kahleah Copper(CHI)
    Points: 13
    Rebounds: 03
    Assists: 01
    Blocks: 01

    Elite athlete Kahleah was doing a great job on the offensive end but will like to be even more assertive in this game. I expect the hooper to be in 12-18 points, 3-5 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42

    CHI vs CON DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Allie Quigley(CHI) had 7 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Sharpshooter Quigley was off her game during the last appearance but can attract the defense through her perimeter chops. I expect a 8-12 points and 3-5 assists range.
    •  Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-24
    • Natisha Hiedeman(CON) had 5 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds in the last game. Natisha continues to be a quality contributor and has been a huge factor on the defensive end for sure. I believe she will be in 7-11 points range here.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-29
    • Brionna Jones(CON) had 12 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block in the last game. Jones has a lot of power from the low-post and gave quality minutes in Game 1. I believe she will be in 8-12 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 16-26
    • Azura Stevens(CHI) had 2 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Forward Azura was shut down in the last game but I expect an improved performance. She can be in 6-12 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-30
    • Courtney Williams(CON) had 6 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists in the last game. Courtney’s shot has been off since the beginning of the Playoffs but she has been doing it well in other areas. I believe she will be in 8-14 points, 4-6 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-22
    • Emma Messeman(CHI) had 10 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. Forward Emma is one of the most experienced and well-versed players out there. I expect a 10-14 points, 4-6 assists, and 3-5 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-23
    • Rebekah Gardner(CHI) had 4 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Gardner is a sparkplug off the bench who can create multiple things. I believe she will be in 4-8 points, 2-4 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-24
    • Di’Jonai Carrington(CON) had 2 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist in the last game. A much disciplined Sky defense limited hopping Carrington’s production. I expect a 4-8 points range here.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 12-22
    • Odyssey Sims(CON) had 4 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Odyssey was also caught up in the tremendous Sky defense. I expect a similar range as above.
