The WNBA is known for talented basketball stars who have developed their game through competition and training during school, college, and now in the professional setup. Here, perennial threat Minnesota Lynx takes on the worst team record-wise in Indiana Fever. More about MIN vs IND Dream11 will be provided here.
Lynxput on an offensive and defensive show during the first of the three back-to-back games between the squad. Fever began well and even took lead in the first quarter but Lynx established an amazing inside-outside game with Ariel Powers, Kayla McBride, and Sylvia Fowles doing a lot of damage. The Fever has had troubles guarding in the third quarter and they got outscored 20-19 during the period. Kelsey Mitchell took some tough shots and will surely like to improve her shot selection for this game as the Fever has no answer for the Lynx offense in the last three quarters. Lynx is the number one team in 2-point FG% and it is not surprising when they have amazing low block stars in Collier and Fowles. Defensively, Lynx ranks third in points allowed per game at 78.9 PPG while Fever is the second-worst offensive team in Points Per Game, only at 74.7 PPG, how can they counter a team that outmatches at both sides of the floor?

(Last Match Stats)
PPG: 16.0 RPG: 10.0 BPG: 1.9 SPG: 1.8
Sylvia is averaging a double-double and that is not a surprise at all since she plays close to the basket and can outmuscle a lot of players at the rebounding end. Her off-the-ball cuts along with her fakes and power game allow her to dominate the game. Her game was at full display in the last match as she also registered 5 blocks and 4 steals, completely dominating the defensive end.
PPG: 16.7 SPG: 1.0
Kelsey is a total package on offense, she uses her quick trigger to sink jumpers while her quick first-step and superb dribbling abilities help her to get inside as well. She can stop on the dime and hit a shot while she can also take it to the rack. She struggled against Lynx’s defense in the last game and shot just 4-15 from the floor, going for just 1-9 from beyond the arc.
PPG: 16.0 RPG: 6.5 APG: 3.0 BPG: 1.2 SPG: 1.2
Naphessa is the current All-WNBA Second team and second All-Defensive team right now. Collier has one of the most impressive footwork in the low-block while her lovely shooting form allows her to be effective as a scorer from multiple areas. She is also well-adept at grabbing rebounds and can make winning plays consistently.
PPG: 11.0 RPG: 9.5 BPG: 1.4
McCowan is a throw-back center who does most of her damage close to the basket. She can use nifty moves to finish inside, overpowering defenders while also using her wide body to fend away contact. She is also an elite rebounder and acts as the last line of defense for Indiana.
PPG: 14.1 RPG: 3.6
McBride has a wide arsenal of offensive moves. She is an excellent long-range bomber while she uses clever dribble moves to carve space inside. Her sense to release the ball over taller defenders can be matched by only few players and she loves using her floaters, runner, and stepbacks to carve out offense in tough positions.
Mitchell is a terrific dribbler and her shifty frame allows her to move up and down the court at great speed. She employs hesitation, behind-the-back, between-the-legs moves to get right at the rim. Her athleticism and body control allow her to finish against contact and also earn trips to the line. She is also a decent mid-range shooter but struggles to be consistent from the three-point line, shooting just 23.9 % from there.
PPG: 12.3 RPG: 3.4
PPG: 6.8 RPG: 3.9
