  • CHI vs NYL Dream11

    CHI vs NYL Dream11: The WNBA Playoffs have moved into peak mode and we have already witnessed some exciting battles. There was also an upset to kick off things and that when the Chicago Sky was taken down by the New York Liberty in First Game of Round 1, they will meet here for the second game.

    The Liberty won 98:91 in a comeback win as Sabrina Ionescu and Natasha Howard rolled in 22 points each. Kahleah Copper popped off for a 21 points night but that wasn’t enough in this game where the Sky defense collapsed in an uncharacteristic manner.

    This becomes a must-win game for the Sky in a best of three scenario. What will be the result here?

    Host: Chicago Sky
    Visitors: New York Liberty

    Match Timing: 20 August, @ 09:30 PM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Wintrust Arena

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Sky was overwhelmed

    New York scored 25 or more in three straight quarters. The Liberty shot an awesome 44% from the three-point line and 49.3% from the field. Apart from Howard and Ionescu, Betnijah Laney and Stefanie Dolson had strong nights too, in what was finally a game where Liberty showed their full potential. The Liberty had 28 assists with Guards Ionescu and Johannes putting on a passing clinic.

    The Sky did eke out a 37-34 rebounds advantage but shot just 25% from three, getting outgunned by four triples. They committed 10 turnovers compared to 8 by Liberty in a game that was played cleanly. The Sky was aggressive on offense but their defense abandoned them in big ways.Can they make it through or will the brilliant passing of the Liberty will burying them?

    Performance Predictions

    Highest scorer: Sabrina Ionescu: 23
    Highest rebounder: Candace Parker: 11
    Top assists maker: Courtney Vandersloot: 9
    Score Prediction: Sky: 87    Liberty:77

    Verdict: I don’t see Sky’s defense giving up 90+ at all and I believe they will stretch the series to a decisive Game Three.
