LAS vs DAL Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Los Angeles Sparks vs Dallas Wings

Share

LAS vs DAL Dream11: The WNBA has given us various gifts throughout the season. This is still the early part of the season but we have seen multiple teams emerge out of the blue and raise their game whereas others have been doing a great job of picking it up where they left it during the last season. Then there are some teams still figuring it out and are just building something. And one of those teams in Los Angeles Sparks will host the Dallas Wings.

The Sparks have had a slow start, winning four of their first ten games. In the last game, they did a great job of beating the Lynx in a close 85:83 victory as Chennedy Carter dropped 20 points and led the team in rebounds and assists. On the other hand, the Wings have clinched five wins in eight games. In the last match, they lost to the Sun 68:99 as they got overwhelmed on both ends. Can the Sparks finally get a winning run from here?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Streaky Wings, Sparks need to be more connected

The Sparks have not gotten in a sustainable rhythm, they have won two of their last three games, but two of them have been against vulnerable teams. Against teams that are well-oiled units, they have often crumbled on both ends and one of the biggest shortcomings has been the lack of three-point shooting. However, getting Katie Lou-Samuelson has improved them a bit from long range. Chennedy Carter can be a big isolation scorer but the team is still reliant mostly upon Nneka Ogwumike.

The Wings have been amazing away from, nabbing four wins in five games. The problem is that the team is way too streaky and is yet to develop a cohesion on the offensive end. Defensively, they have shown promise but a lot of work is to be done for the squad to become consistent. Marina Mabrey has been in the middle of a breakout season but Arike Ogunbowale has been way too inefficient. Can the Wings be a more consistent unit and develop a more disciplined approach?
