  • CON vs LAS Dream11

    CON vs LAS Dream11: The WNBA has been amidst a great season and we are just steadily heading towards the Playoffs situation as only a couple of spots for the Postseason right now. The Los Angeles Sparks are in a desperate race right now as they face the Connecticut Sun here.

    The Sun has been a solid team again and remains a title contender for five years straight or so. They have stacked up 23 wins and 11 losses and have a huge shot at finishing third and a decent chance of making it to the second seed.

    Meanwhile, the Sparks are having another disappointing season, they have just 13 wins and 21 losses, their playoff hopes all but dashed. The Sparks have lost seven out of the last eight games.

    The Sparks and the Sun met just a couple of days ago when the Sun dealt a huge 97-71 loss to the Sparks. The Sparks have lost both their games against the Sun thus far.

    Host: LA Sparks
    Visitors: Connecticut Sun

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Sparks have been off

    The Sparks have been a disaster this season, somehow imploding with each month and unable to even remain competitive for most parts. They have lost the plot on the defensive completely while the three-point shooting has been horrendous for most parts. While Sykes has balled lately, the team lacks the scoring depth to keep up against most teams. The Sparks need to revamp their roster in the offseason, this one looks like a mishmash at this point with only Sykes and Nneka being effective.

    The Sun can be big in the Playoffs

    The Sun has had a terrific season and they have improved offensively compared to last season. Two main reasons; one, Alyssa Thomas has accelerated the pace alongside Courtney Williams, and two, the Sun has figured out their rotations despite missing veteran Jazmine Thomas as Hiedeman has picked up her game. This is a team that can’t be underestimated into the Playoffs, considering both their experience and intensity.

    Alyssa Thomas(CON)
    Points: 11

    Points: 18
    Rebounds: 07

    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 27-39

    DeWanna Bonner(CON)

    Rebounds: 04
    Assists: 01
    Steals: 03

    Shifty wing Bonner is capable of doing damage on both ends and her frame helps her to contort production. I believe she will be in 13-19 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-3 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-36

    Jordin Canada(LAS)
    Points: 15
    Rebounds: 02
    Assists: 06
    While Canada has been an exceptional passer, the Sparks wished that her scoring was as effective as last game, which hasn’t been the case. I see her in 7-12 points and 5-8 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-31
    CON vs LAS Dream11

    CON vs LAS DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Courtney Williams(CON) had 6 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Guard Courtney helps in numerous ways and her versatility enables the Sun to be an effective unit. I believe she will be in 12-16 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-30
    • Katie Lou-Samuelson(LAS) had 6 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Perhaps the best shooter on the Sparks, Katie still isn’t the answer for the current woes. I believe she will be in 9-15 points range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-31
    • Brionna Jones(CON) had 14 points, 4 rebounds in the last game. Physically dominant Brianna helps conjure production close to the basket and is a great bench presence. I believe she will be in 10-16 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 18-34
    • Natisha Hiedeman(CON) had 13 points, 2 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Hiedeman has heated up offensively and gives terrific defense as well. I believe she will be in 11-16 points and 2-4 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
    • Di’Jonai Carrington(CON) had 8 points, 8 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. Carrington brings great skills off the bench and has been a big producer. I believe she will be in 6-10 points range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
    • Chiney Ogwumike(LAS) had 3 points, 5 rebounds in the last game. Ogwumike is a solid rebounder with a penchant for scoring inside. I believe she will be in 4-9 points and 4-7 rebounds range.

      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 4-11
    • Lexie Brown(LAS) had 6 points, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game. Guard Lexie can knock down the outside shot but has been inconsistent. I believe she will be in 6-11 points range here.
