Share

LVA vs CHI Dream11: The WNBA is steadily heading towards the Playoffs window and we have already seen some head-spinning developments. Tina Charles left the Storm and Liz Cambage left Sparks in the middle, making it such an unpredictable league. This unpredictable league only makes it more interesting and things can’t be more thrilling when the two of the best teams the Las Vegas Aces and the Chicago Sky will clash here.

The Aces have won 20 out of the 28 games which is rather a bit low considering they started with 13 wins and 2 losses. They have once again gotten in the groove, winning five out of the last six games, and come into this game after defeating the Sparks 84:66 as Kelsey Plum clicked for 29 points.

The Sky has been the best team in the league, admirably backing up their championship season with an impressive 21 wins and seven losses record. Their six-game winning streak was broken by the Liberty 80:83 despite 21 points and 11 rebounds night by Candace Parker.

The Sky beat the Aces 104:95 in their last meeting as the Sky erased a 25-point deficit.

Host: Chicago Sky
Visitors: Las Vegas Aces
Match Timing: 27 July, @ 06:00 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Wintrust Arena

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Aces have got their mojo back

After a 13-2 start, the Aces were in a lean phase where they lost five out of the seven games. However, they have done a great job to recover and one of the main reasons and this is a team that has a classic run and gun, being number one in points and pace. Defense isn’t a strong suit but they can do a wonderful job of overwhelming opponents with a terrific brand of basketball.

The duo of Kelsey Plum and A’ja Wilson has been an MVP-level one and it is tough to decide which one of the two can win the award. The combination of Chelsea Gray, Jackie Young, and Dearica Hamby, brings a distinct flavor but the bench is surely one of the weakest.

Sky is multi-dimensional

The Sky is perhaps the most versatile team in the league. The team has the second-best scoring in the league and the fourth-best defensive rating, limiting teams to the least three-pointers in the league. Chicago also shoots the best percentage in the league and that signifies their experience and shot selection.

For a team that has won the championship with a sturdy core of Candace Parker, Courtney Vandersloot, Allie Quigley, Azure Stevens, and Kahleah Copper, when you add an all-around threat like Emma Messeman and an impressive rookie bench player Rebekah Gardner, the results are obviously going to be impressive. Back-to-back champions?
