CHI vs WAS Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Chicago Sky vs Washington Mystics

Share

CHI vs WAS Dream11: The WNBA has been in its closing stages of the Regular Season and at this point, we will see the Playoffs seedings being set. It is a period where the intensity can either pick up a lot for the team still seeking a Playoff spot and for some teams, it can go down if they are on the top, as they look to relax a bit before entering the Playoffs. But will the Chicago Sky and the Washington Mystics relax or go berserk as they meet in this intriguing affair?

The Sky has proven to be the toughest competitor this season. They have won 23 out of 31 games and they have won two out of the last three games. They come into this game after losing to the Wings 78:84 despite a 19 points effort by Kahleah Copper.

On the flip side, the Washington Mystics have been a tough team too, building a defensive identity. They have done a great job of winning 20 and losing just 12 games. They are the winners of five out of the last six games and in the last game, they defeated the Aces 83-73 as Natasha Cloud bundled up 16 points.

The Mystics and the Sky have met twice, and the series is tied.

Host: Chicago Sky
Visitors: Washington Mystics

Match Timing: 6 August, @ 05:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Wintrust Arena

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Sky has too much firepower

The Sky has perhaps the deepest team in the league. They are loaded in all positions and they have multiple all-around players who can all adopt versatile roles and take the load off each other. For example, there are times when there are five different top-scorers in five different games. It also implies that the team can cover up for injuries and deeply different combinations that bring in winning flavour. The defense is set on premium, shooting is aplenty, driving lanes are plentiful, and the buzz is on more often than not.

Mystics have been strong defensiveley

The Mystics have proven to be a tough competitor throughout the season. Whenever Elena plays, they are surely looking like a title contender, so it has been essential to manage her minutes. The Mystics are not the most consistent team in terms of offensive output. Natasha Cloud and Ariel Atkins have been a strong duo especially on defense but their offense has been a tad inconsistent, Cloud also helping the team as a major playmaker. Alysha Clark has been a huge factor too while rookie Shakira Austin has shown that she belongs to the big stage.
