Share

LVA vs CHI Dream11: The WNBA All-Star voting is done now and we are in the halfway territory of the Regular Season. Breanna Stewart is one of the headliners when it comes to the team and there will be other common names, one of them being A’ja Wilson while Kelsey Plum also looks All-Star Bound. These two players will be in action as the Las Vegas Aces will take on the Chicago Sky.

The Aces have been the best team so far, hoarding 13 wins in 15 games. They are on a four-game winning streak and they come into this contest after notching a thrilling 96:95 win versus the Lynx as A’ja Wilson collected 25 points. On the other hand, the Chicago Sky have won 10 out of their 15 games and have done an incredible job in their bid to defend their title. They have won three of the last four games but lost the last game to the Fever in a close 87:89 loss despite a 28 points outburst by Kahleah Copper. Can the Sky recover and stall the Aces’ winning train?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Runnin’ and Gunnin’ Aces

The Aces are the fastest-paced team in the league and with the evolution of Kelsey Plum, they have become the most potent offense. With A’ja Wilson clicking on her regular rate, the team has developed an elite inside and outside scoring unit, which is not a surprise considering they have players like Young, Gray, and Hamby, all capable of fitting in a running team. The Aces defense can be compromised at times but they are so efficient that you have to be on your A-game offensively during most nights.

Sky is precise

The Sky plays nowhere near the pace of the Aces but their defense has been commendable. Bringing in Emma Messeman into the field has undoubtedly bolstered the Forward depth. Candace Parker has continued to be a huge All-Around factor and thanks to a much more precise passing lineup, the burden on Courtney Vandersloot has reduced considerably. The inclusion of Rebekah Gardner has made the Guard depth alongside Allie Quigley and Kahleah Copper even better.

Performance Predictions

Highest scorer: A’ja Wilson: 27
Highest rebounder: Dearica Hamby: 12
Top assists maker: Kelsey Plum: 8
Score Prediction: Aces 85 Sky 80

LVA vs CHI DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Dearica Hamby(LVA) had 16 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals in the last game. Forward Dearica is an elite rebounder who is having a breakthrough scoring season. I believe she will be in 11-17 points, 8-11 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-29
  • Kahleah Copper(CHI) had 28 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal in the last game. Guard Kahleah’s scoring burden has been reduced but that doesn’t stop her from being an assertive player. I expect a 16-22 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-31
  • Allie Quigley(CHI) had 8 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal in the last game. Veteran sharpshooter Allie has been a bit off her game but that is due to limited touches, however, she remains a pesky defender and precise shooter. I believe she will be in 7-11 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-19
  • Jackie Young(LVA) had 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists in the last game. Guard Young has been inefficient since her injury and before that, she was tearing defenses apart. I believe she will be in 12-17 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-30
  • Rebekah Gardner(CHI) had 8 points, 2 rebounds in the last game. Rebekah has been a sweet surprise off the bench as a scintillating two-way presence. I believe she will be in 6-12 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
  • Kiah Stokes(LVA) had 2 rebounds in the last game. Kiah is a superb rebounder but her minutes have taken a hit this season. I expect a 2-6 points and 2-5 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 6-12
  • Azure Stevens(CHI) had 5 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Stevens has continued to provide quality minutes. I believe she will be in 6-10 points and 2-4 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 11-21
  • Theresa Plaisance(LVA) had 3 points, 3 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. Plaisance is a decent bench player but the Forward logjam doesn’t allow her to get many minutes. I believe she will be in 3-7 points and 2-4 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 3-10
  • Aisha Sheppard(LVA) had 2 points, 1 rebound in the last game. Sheppard doesn’t play many minutes.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 2-9
  • Ruthy Hebard(CHI) had 6 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals in the last game. Hebard is a brilliant rebounder off the bench but she can see her minutes being slashed here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 4-12
