  • LVA vs CON Dream11

    LVA vs CON Dream11: The WNBA is into the Finals and there is no doubt that the intensity level during the prior rounds sets a brilliant precedent. We have discovered a bunch of hungry teams, willing to risk it all, play with all in their body and claim the championship. Both the Semi-Finals series was awesome and brought us close games and also a bunch of comebacks. The Storm-Aces series surely deserves a big mention in the lore of the W as it is one of the closest series in the story. And just like the Yolanda Griffith-Lisa Leslie match-up during the Kings and Sparks series from the early to mid 00s., there was a much-anticipated A’ja Wilson-Breanna Stewart match-up in the last Semis, making for a pleasurable viewing.

    Enough about what happened, let us dive into what is to take place. In the first game of the Finals, the Las Vegas Aces is going to take on Connecticut Sun. The Aces were pushed to the brink by the Storm, winning 97:92 against the Storm courtesy of the late-game takeover by Chelsea Gray, who ended up with 31 points. On the other hand, the Sun turned the tables on the last season champion, the Chicago Sky, winning the series in five games, and winning two in a row to complete the comeback. They come into this game after beating the Sky 72:63 in a balanced team effort. How will these contrasting styles mash up here?

    Host: Las Vegas Aces
    Visitors: Connecticut Sun
    Match Timing: 12 September, @ 12:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Michelob Ultra Arena

    Lightning pace vs grind-out style

    The Aces like to run a lot, they had the best pace in the league and they churned out a similar brand of basketball against the Storm, which brought them huge gains indeed. What gave the Aces edge over the Storm was that they had four solid scorers, three of them in Plum, Wilson, and Gray constantly peaking past the 20 points mark while Jackie Young kept making key shots. They engaged the Storm in a shoot-out type of scenario, which suits their style in many ways. All that is left in that case is getting those key stops which they did continously.

    The Sun are opposite, they don’t play at a high-pace and like to slow down the pace, making their opponents work hard for every past. Their defense was elite against the Sky, and restricting a team like that below average isn’t easy. Thus, they will fancy their chances even against the steamrolling Aces. For the Sun, having Alyssa Thomas will be key as she can do a lot of things, however, one area where they lacked the steam was identifying a consistent scorer, but a huge plus was that Courtney Williams got her rhythm back through the process.

    In this series, it will be interesting to see how the Sun control the versatile scoring set of the Aces, a team that has brilliant ball-handlers, accurate passers, amazing cutters, and can both finish inside and also shoot from outside. The Aces can live with a couple of players having off-nights because they are just too loaded and Chelsea Gray may end up being the toughest match-up here, considering how much she has bothered defenses. Let us see how the gang defense of the Sun deal with the relentless attacks of the Aces.

    Points: 12
    Rebounds: 10

    Thomas is one of the biggest reasons why the Sun has made it this far. She provides strong inside scoring, top-notch passing, tough rebounding, and also can play top-level defense. I expect her to be in 12-16 points, 8-12 rebounds, 6-10 assists, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-60

    Chelsea Gray(LVA)

    Jonquel Jones(CON)

    Jonquel sprinkled a lot of key buckets in the last series and is a huge threat in terms of scoring, rebounding, and defense, using her size well. I believe the future Hall-of-Famer will be in 13-19 points, 8+ rebounds, and 1-2 blocks/steals range.

    A thunderous first-step, low-post prowess, off-the-ball shooting, pump fakes, tough rebounding, and elite defense, these are among some of the things that A’ja does regularly. I expect a 20+ points and 10+ rebounds range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-50

    DeWanna Bonner(CON)
    Points: 15

    Bonner turned her game around in the second half of the series and shot more efficiently while giving her usual strong defense and also above-average rebounding and passing. I expect her to be in 10-16 points, 5-7 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-34

    Kelsey Plum(LVA)
    Points: 15

    LVA vs CON DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Jackie Young(LVA) had 18 points, 5 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Young seems to have recovered from her injury or has rather braved it well, becoming much more efficient and knocking down key jumpers. Remember she made the game-tying shot in Game 3 and then a bunch of key shots in Game 4. I expect a 12-18 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-37
    • Courtney Willliams(CON) had 12 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Cocurtney displayed the type of form that was expected of her and she seems to be back on track. I expect her to be in 10-14 points, 4-6 rebounds, and 2-4 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
    • Kiah Stokes(LVA) had 4 points, 6 rebounds in the last game. Stokes is a solid rebounder, a decent inside scorer, and has carved out a starting role. I expect her to be in 4-8 points and 5-9 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-18
    • Brionna Jones(CON) had 2 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Will big Brionna see a limited role against the Aces that can take advantage of bigs through their speed.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
    • Riquna Williams(LVA) had 6 points, 3 assists, 1 rebound, 2 steals in the last game. Riquna has given strong three-point shooting off-the-bench. I expect a 6-12 points range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
    • Natisha Hiedeman(CON) had 14 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. Guard Hiedeman is an amazing player who has shown scoring abilities while being a more-than-handy defender.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 8-18
    • Di’Jonai Carrington(CON) had 2 points, 2 rebounds in the last game. Carrington is an effective bench player who has gotten it done repeatedly. I expect a 4-8 points range here.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 8-18
