  • LVA vs SEA Dream11

    LVA vs SEA Dream11: The WNBA First Round ended with the favorites progressing to the Semis but matters were complicated in Game 1 of the Semis when the home teams lost. The Las Vegas will face a challenging terrain as they take on the Seattle Storm in Game 2 of the Semis.

    The Aces were overwhelmed by the strong Storm defense in the first game but still took it to the wire losing 73:76 as Kelsey Plum missed a game-tying three from a favored angle. Jewell Loyd’s 26 points outburst and Tina Charles’ 18 rebounds were big contributions as the Storm drew the first blood. Can the Aces avenge the loss?

    Host: Las Vegas Aces
    Visitors: Seattle Storm
    Match Timing: 1 September, @ 07:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Michelob Ultra Arena

    Dance Number 2

    The First Game saw the Storm shut down the Aces in first quarter, outscoring them 26:15, a parity that helped them maintain the lead for most parts. After outscoring the Storm by four in each of the next two quarters, the Aces were limited to 16 points in the last one and despite a sub-par second half, Seattle nabbed the win courtesy of their experience.

    A’ja Wilson was shut down by the Storm defense whereas Jewell Loyd and Breanna Stewart combined for 50 points to bury the Aces. The Storm shot just 22.7% from three, making just five but the Aces only had one more triple with an abysmal percentage of around 27. The Aces defense was locked in but their offense will need to do much more. The Storm played without Gabby Williams, who is their elite defender but the Aces were still unable to solve the defensive riddle. How can the Aces bounce back after a lukewarm Game 1 offensive response?

    Breanna Stewart(SEA)
    Points: 24
    Rebounds: 06
    Assists: 02

    Blocks: 03
    Steals: 01

    Breanna continued where she left off and put up big numbers as expected in Game 1, shooting above 50% in a defensive-minded game. I believe she will be in 20+ points, 7-10 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 40-60

    Kelsey Plum(LVA)
    Points: 20
    Rebounds: 04
    Assists: 02
    Talented scorer Plum made just 2 of her 10 triples, which was a cause of concern in Game 1 but still managed to get to 20. I expect her to be in 17-23 points and 3-6 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40

    Jewell Loyd(SEA)
    Points: 26
    Rebounds: 00
    Assists: 04
    Steals: 01

    After having a so-so offensive season by her standards, Loyd is back to what she does best, make big buckets and put pressure on the opposition. I believe she will be in 16-21 points and 3-5 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-34

    A’ja Wilson(LVA)
    Points: 08
    Rebounds: 12
    Assists: 03
    Blocks: 03
    Wilson shot just 3/10 which meant that the Storm won the Forward match-up considerably so the MVP candidate will need to step up her game. I expect her to step it up here and be in 18+ points, 8+ rebounds, and 2-4 steals/blocks range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 36-50
    LVA vs SEA Dream11

    Sue Bird(SEA)
    Points: 02
    Rebounds: 04
    Assists: 12
    Steals: 01

    Although she shot just 1/6 in Game 1, Bird was once again making electric passes and threading the needle. I expect her to be in 6-12 points and 6+ assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-34

    Chelsea Gray(LVA)
    Points: 21
    Rebounds: 01
    Assists: 05
    Steals: 02

    Gray continued to her riveting Playoff form in Game 1 and turned up strong numbers but they weren’t enough in the end. I expect her to be in 17-23 points and 4-7 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-42

    LVA vs SEA DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Jackie Young(LVA) had 11 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Jackie attempted just 6 shots and made four free-throws, which can be considered a quite night compared to the standards she has set this season. I expect her to be in 12-16 points, 4-6 assists, 3-5 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-37
    • Tina Charles(SEA) had 13 points, 18 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Charles shot just 6/18 but her rebounding activity played a key role in limiting the Aces as the legendary scoring Center proved her signing worth it. I believe she will be in 10-15 points and 8-13 rebounds range here.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
    • Kiah Stokes(LVA) had 4 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Throwback Center Kiah continues to provide solid rebounding and defense in the middle. I believe she will be in 4-8 points, 7-11 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range here.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-18
    • Ezi Magbebor(SEA) had 4 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Center Magbebor played limited minutes in the last game. I expect the springy Center to be in 6-10 points and 4-7 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
    • Riquna Williams(LVA) had 6 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal in the last game. Riquna shot 2/6 in the last game and brings solid scoring off the bench. I expect a 4-8 points and 2-4 rebounds rnage.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-22
    • Stephanie Talbot(SEA) had 7 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists. 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Talbot gave quality minutes pitching in as a starter due to Gabby’s injury. I expect her to be in 5-9 points, 3-5 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 8-18
    • Ilian Rupert(LVA) had 3 points, 1 rebound in the last game. Rupert played just 11 minutes but did a decent job. I believe she will be in 2-4 points and 2-4 rebounds range.
