WNBA season is heading in closing stages and the Playoffs are in full flair now with the Semi-Finals in this game. In this match, Connecticut Sun is going to battle it out versus Chicago Sky. More about CON vs CHI Dream11 will be provided here.
Two of the best offensive and defensive players in the league Candace Parker and Jonquel Jones are going to face off in this contest. Sun finished with the best record in the Regular Season but Sky has won the last two games in a superb manner including a clinical victory versus the Lynx. Sun had the best defense in the league and Sky will have a tougher time than earlier games against their size and athleticism.
While the frontline of Jonquel-Brianna-Bonner can pose multiple problems for Sky with the size and physicality, Chicago’s guards Quigley and Vandersloot are problematic because of their shooting. Courtney Vandersloot is also a wonderful playmaker and can pose a ton of trouble for Brian January and Jasmine Thomas. Sky also has a wonderful scorer in Copper and Diamond DeShields acts as the “X-Factor” off the bench.
In terms of styles, Connecticut plays a half-court-based offense while Sky sets it up early in the shot-clock. This contrasting approach headlines that while Sun will need to lock it up in open-court situations, Sky will have to contend with a lot of ball movement. This can be a close series considering both team’s abilities to put the game away through intense offense and top-class defense.

Jonquel led the league in Rebounds per game during the Regular Season. The tall and lanky Forward poses a ton of match-up problems, using high-post, low-post, and perimeter scoring skills. She is a terrific shooter but her post-game and dribble drives are equally impressive. Jones is also one of the best defensive players in the league and can fill the stat-sheet with her overall prowess.
While Candace is not the same scorer she used to be a few years, the Forward is still a difference-maker. Parker usually starts her offense from the perimeter, showcasing premier ball-handling skills, face-up jumpers, and a lot more. Candace can also rain it down from beyond the arc and run for easy buckets at the rim on the break. She is also an excellent rebounder, playmaker, and defender, what more can you ask for!
Points Per Game: 14.7
Rebounds Per Game: 7.3
Steals Per Game: 1.4
Brionna is majorly an inside player and does most of her damage in the paint. She uses power game to get inside the lanes and can finish over taller and stronger defenders as well. Her rebounding skills enable her to ramp up second-chance points while she also plays elite defense.
Kahleah led the Sky in scoring during the regular season and has carried her superb form to the postseason. Her off-the-ball game and athletic moves allow her to finish at the rim while she is also more than a decent shooter. Copper can be a huge problem for the Sun’s defense despite their size and quick-footed players.
Points Per Game: 15.2
Rebounds Per Game: 6.4
Assists Per Game: 3.4
Steals Per Game: 1.3
Bonner is a dynamic scorer who can score in myriad ways. She can shoot as far as 30+ ft plus, uses her athleticism to finish at the rim, and has a great pull-up jumper. DeWanna can also get up for boards, pass the ball well, and is also a superb defender.
Courtney is one of the best passers to ever play in the WNBA and her ability to make outlet passes make her a superb fastbreak player. Vandersloot can also play the half-court game well and can pass in traffic. Her shooting coupled with a nifty driving game makes her a difficult player to guard.
