LVA vs CHI Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 18 September


The WNBA regular season is going to fold in less than a week and for now, teams will fight it out for the top seedings before the beginning of the postseason. In this match-up, Las Vegas Aces dive into a game versus the Chicago Sky. More information about LVA vs CHI Dream11 will be imparted here.

LVA vs CHI Dream11 Prediction

This is the third meeting between the two teams and the season series is tied at one-one. Aces play at the fastest pace in the league and that is no surprise since they have Chelsea Gray who likes to push it up the floor while Wilson and Young love to run up and down the court. The athletic Aces also has another player in Kelsey Plum who can click in early shots, while shooters like Riquna Williams can light it up all night. The Aces is a difficult team to guard and they use incredible athleticism to be influential on the defensive end as well. On the other hand, Sky has a balanced lineup of Vandersloot-Quigley-Copper-Parker, all four of them capable scorers and shooters while Vandersloot and Parker can also pull out tough passes. Both teams have amazing offensive and defensive players accompanied by a deep bench so this has all the potential to be a fun battle.

PPG: 18.7    RPG: 9.4     APG: 3.0      BPG: 1.3

A’ja has one of the smoothest footworks in the league and the lefty forward can employ drop steps, pump fakes, post hooks, jab steps, and various moves to finish. Wilson an effective face-up game while going to the mid-range and knock down jumpers off the catch. She can also run up and down the floor, allowing Aces guards to find her on the move in the open court scenarios. She is also a tenacious rebounder and a tough player on the defensive end.

Candace Parker
Points: 12
Rebounds: 11
Assists: 05
PPG: 13.3    RPG: 8.9   APG: 4.0    BPG: 1.1
Candance usually starts her offensive game around the three-point line in a triple-threat situation. Parker can use shot fakes, post-up plays, and extensive dribble moves to get access to the paint or create face-up situations from the mid-range areas. Candace is a relentless rebounder and is the reigning WNBA Defensive Player of the Year.

Kahleah Copper
Points: 03

Rebounds: 03
Assists: 00
PPG: 14.4    RPG: 4.4   
Copper likes to move without the basketball and leads the Sky in scoring. She has a reliable jumper while her hesitation dribble moves allow her to hit shots while creating immense separation. She can also take it to the rack and finish.

Chelsea Gray
Points: 08
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 03
PPG: 11.1    APG: 6.1    RPG: 3.0    BPG: 1.3
Chelsea provides the motor and sync that allows Aces to run a fast-paced offense. She can thread the needle for tough passes and makes life easier for rim runners like A’ja Wilson. Gray also fights hard on the defensive end and can also shoot the ball from a distance and inside.

Allie Quigley
Points: 15
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 03
PPG: 13.5   
Allie has a spring in her step and her lovely shooting form is one of the best in basketball. She can move like a deer off the ball, can hit pull-ups in transition, and doesn’t care if the defense is pasted all over her. She also has a lovely runner and floater which she deploys every now and then.

Courtney Vandersloot
Points: 04
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 06
PPG: 11.0   APG: 8.8     RPG: 3.5       SPG: 1.7
Vandersloot is the major ball-handler in this unit and oh, what a job she does! She can nail tough outlet passes while her ability to read the defense provides her squad with consistent offensive machinery. Courtney is also amazing at getting her hands on the ball for steals and can shoot from outside while hitting nifty shots inside.

Jackie Young
Points: 08
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 03
PPG: 12.1    RPG: 4.0    APG: 3.2      SPG: 1.2
Young forms a terrific Forward duo with A’ja. Jackie’s specialty is movement without the ball and then finishing near the rim with athletic moves. She is also an excellent defender and a nightmare in fastbreak situations.

Assists: 05
PPG: 14.3   APG: 3.8    SPG: 1.0
