The Semi-Finals leg in the WNBA has begun and the competition is only going to get more intense. Connecticut lost the first game to Chicago and Sun will be looking to get revenge at home versus Sky. More about CON vs CHI Dream11 will be provided here.
Sky nullified the home advantage of Sun by defeating them in the first game. Sun was plagued by poor shooting in Game 1, shooting about 37% but their late-game defense kept them in the game. Sky took advantage of the poor shooting and took it to the rack for high-quality shots.
Chicago was able to both get out on the break and play half-court situation, which gave trouble to even an elite defense of Sun. Sun will need to contain the ball movement of Sky and improve their own shot selection as DeWanna Bonner continued to hoist difficult shots.
Sky can’t relax yet as the Connecticut Sun is going to come with fire in this game at the home floor. Chicago will need to contain the offensive rebounding of Brionna Jones who killed them on boards. Connecticut will need to contain Kahleh and Candace’s dribble-drive penetration better in the next game.

Jonquel Jones can be taken as a Super/Pro Player in the Dream11 Fantasy Basketball lineup.
One among Kahleah Copper, Candace Parker, and Courtney Vandersloot should be at least in the Fantasy team.
*Points, rebounds, steals, blocks, and assists from the last game. Averages from Regular Season*
Jones won the league’s MVP award and for a good reason. She heaped up the highest Rebounds per average in the WNBA. Her scoring skills involve perimeter shooting, an array of low-post moves, and powerful driving skills. She nailed 10 out of 21 shots in the last game.
Candace is an unbelievably talented player who plays with a lot of heart. Parker is a dangerous scorer, usually starting from the perimeter in the half-court situation. She uses dribble moves, low-post, face-up game, and can also run to the rack in the break. Her rebounding abilities and playmaking skills along with her defense make her an all-around player.
Jones is the most improved player in the league this year. She plays primarily inside the paint and finishes at tough angles near the rim. Her strong hands enable her to catch the ball amidst traffic. She also fights hard on the glass and can generate second-chance points. She shot 9/16 from the field in the last game and led the team in steals.
Vandersloot stuffed the stat sheet in the last game and became just the second WNBA player to capture a triple-double in the Playoffs. She also notched the highest ever 18 assists in the WNBA during the last game. These numbers are of little surprise since Courtney has always been a top-notch passer in the break and in half-court situations as well.
DeWanna is a quick-footed Forward who can kill defenses in various ways. She drives hard to the rim but can shoot as far away as from 30 feet. Bonner shot 5/17 from the floor and took some difficult shots all game long. However, it doesn’t mean that she can’t bounce back.
