CON vs NYL Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Connecticut Sun vs New York Liberty

Share

CON Vs NYL Dream11: The midway point of the WNBA season is here and there is no doubt that we are into the All-Star territory as the voting has closed. This is also the time when teams have started to figure out their rotations and the games become only more intense. And in this game of the WNBA, the Connecticut Sun will host the New York Liberty.

The Sun has started on a brilliant note, winning 12 games and five losses. In their last game, they lost to the Mystics 63:71 as their offense crumbled after a long time. On the other hand, the New York Liberty has been struggling once again this season and their offense showcases familiar struggles. In the last game, the New York Liberty lost to the Storm 72:81 despite an incredible 23 points effort by Marine Johannes. Can the Liberty do something about their inconsistent runs?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Sun’s brilliant offense

The Sun scored just 63 in the last game but that doesn’t represent their effort for the season. Their offense has been much better this season compared to the last one and they are pushing the pace better. Yes, Jonquel Jones has been a bit erratic but when she has gotten it going, it has been a treat to watch. DeWanna Bonner plays a vital role on both ends, and Alyssa Thomas alongside Courtney Williams has been the reason for the uptempo pace. Meanwhile, Brionna Jones has been an inside force off the bench. The Guard position does look a bit weak right for the Connecticut squad, how can they fix it?

Liberty’s offense gets stagnant

The Liberty’s offense has been under the question mark because of how stagnant it becomes and how isolation centric it can be at times. Sabrina Ionescu has been the major proponent of scoring mostly but her scoring isn’t always there. The addition of Marine Johannes has been a great addition and she finally picked her scoring up in the last game. Natasha Howard can be inefficient but she has been one of the highest-yielding scorers nonetheless. The team has been doing it on the defensive end but the team’s offense has been way too off.
