IND vs LVA Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Indiana Fever vs Las Vegas Aces

Share

IND vs LVA Dream11: The WNBA constantly takes a stride towards the Playoffs window and this has been another riveting season. With just 10+ days of action remaining, the stakes are ever-so-high. But the season is practically for the Indiana Fever, who will meet the Las Vegas Aces here.

The Fever has an abysmal record, winning just five and losing an astounding 25 games. They have lost 12 games in a row, and it has been more than a month since they have won. The team comes into this game after losing to the Fever 86:96 despite an outstanding 34 points night by Kelsey Mitchell.

The Aces have been among the top teams and have accumulated 20 wins and just eight losses. While this is an impressive record, the Aces were doing even better earlier when they had won 13 out of 15 games. However, the recovery is in full flow as they have won five out of the six games. In the last game, they defeated the Sparks 84:66 as Kelsey Plum racked up 29 points.

These two met just last week when the Aces defeated Fever 90:77. This will be the first of the back-to-back meetings.

Host: Indiana Fever
Visitors: Las Vegas Aces
Match Timing: 30July, @ 04:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Hinkle Fieldhouse

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Fever’s lost season

The Fever has been by far the worst team this season, the coaching staff unable to figure out any formidable rotation throughout the season. It is not a surprise that they have struggled this much, considering their rotation consists of as many as four rookies, while the offense is just dependent upon Kelsey Mitchell.

The thing is that Fever is terrible on both ends of the floor. They have the worst field goal % of 40.9 whereas they give up 47.2% on the other hand, which is also the worst. The biggest reason for their downfall has been the lack of specialists on both ends. The team has been officially out of the Playoffs race for a long.

Aces have championship potential

The Aces hit a tough patch in the middle when they lost four of their six games, as they looked exhausted. However, since then, the team has turned it on once again, using their incredible pace. The team has two potential MVP candidates Kelsey Plum and A’ja Wilson, both able to thrive in the quick and half-court setting.

Aces doesn’t have the bench depth but they have starters that can cover up for it. Chelsea Gray makes important shots deep in the shot-clock, Dearica Hamby gives elite rebounding whereas Jackie Young is an athletic player who helps out to push the pace. Can the Aces avoid injuries and make a deep run?

Performance Predictions

Highest scorer: Kelsey Plum: 31

Kelsey Plum(LVA)
Points: 24

Plum has become one of the best scorers in the league and her shooting stroke is aided by an incredible driving game, all revolving around incredible dribbling. I believe she will be in 20+ points and 4-7 assists range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 37-48

NaLyssa Smith(IND)
Points: 16
Rebounds: 05

Points: 17

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-54

Victoria Vivians(IND)
Points: 04
Rebounds: 06

Jackie Young(LVA)
Points: 18
Rebounds: 06
