In this WNBA fixture, a red-hot Connecticut Sun clashes against a desperate New York Liberty. The Sun has long ago made the Playoffs and will likely finish with the top seed while the Liberty still has some way to go before going to the postseason. Here is substantial information about the CON vs NYL Dream11 game.
Connecticut is the best defensive team in the league, keeping it airtight with 70.1 PPG whereas New York Liberty leaks the most points with 85.3 PPG. Both teams play opposite styles of offense, Sun likes to build their scoring patiently, using half-court abilities of their frontcourt in Bonner-Jonquel-Brionna while Liberty is the third-fastest in terms of pace and like to operate early in the shot clock. New York hasn’t received the type of offense that they wanted from Sabrina who is the face of this franchise as she is shooting just 37.1%. The Sun can take over the game in the opening quarter itself so the Liberty needs to start carefully.
This is an important game for Liberty who is fighting with Sparks and Mystics for the last playoff spot, with Mystics edging Sparks and New York with a win. This is a must-win game and if the Liberty wins this game and then wins the next game against the contender Mystics then they may seal their spot for the postseason.

*stats from last game*
PPG: 17.3 APG: 5.1 RPG: 4.2
Laney is an effective forward whose ball-handling skills set her apart from many players at her position. She can shoot at an effective rate as her 45.8% FG indicates and she also has the ability to find her teammates with crisp passes. Betnijah also has a superb face-up jumper and is an offensive package overall.
PPG: 19.6 RPG: 11.2 SPG: 1.4 BPG: 1.2
Jonquel’s playing style is smooth and she can put up points in a hurry. She has an excellent jump shot and uses her long arms and frame to shoot over defenders. She can also get in low-post and use her swinging body to finish inside while she can also nail tough pull-ups and face-up shots. Jones is one of the best defenders in the league and uses her huge wingspan to lead the league in rebounds per game.
PPG: 14.6 RPG: 6.9 SPG: 1.1
Howard is tough to deal in the low-block and uses her size and athleticism to finish over even rugged defenders. She can use off-the-ball cuts to finish on the go while she can also shoot the ball from distance. Her intensity on defense and rebounding skills make her an ideal Forward.
PPG: 15.5 RPG: 6.0 APG: 3.5 SPG: 1.3
Bonner is an athletic forward who can also shoot if from distance, sometimes even as long as 30 feet+. DeWanna uses great movements to free herself from defense and can nail mid-range shots, inside drives, and has the ability to draw fouls. Bonner is also a disciplined defender and can get her hands in the passing lanes.
PPG: 11.4 APG: 6.0 RPG: 5.8
Ionescu is the primary ball-handler for the Liberty and although she has not been as efficient as the Liberty would have wanted, she is an all-around threat. Sabrina can light it up from beyond the arc, make the most unbelievable passes while also taps home rebounds. Ionescu is more than a shooter though and can finish with either hand even against a lot of contact.
PPG: 14.8 RPG: 7.2 SPG: 1.3
Brionna can seal the low-block position and use her strength plus athleticism to finish inside. Jones’ power game is also accompanied by her hunger for rebounds and she also gets a ton of second-chance points. She can also contribute at the defensive end and plays hard every game.
