  • MIN vs SEA Dream11

    MIN vs SEA Dream11: Just like that, we have reached the concluding stages of the WNBA Regular Season in what has been a riveting and rewarding league once again for a lot of fans and players alike. Seattle Storm has been saying goodbye to Sue Bird for some time now and her Seattle Storm will take on the Minnesota Lynx here.

    The Storm enter the game in an inconsistent manner, and they have lost 13 and won 21 games which is still respectable. They come into this game after defeating the Sky 111-100 as Breanna Stewart nailed 25 points.

    On the other hand, the Lynx have had a tough season but they have somehow bounced back to the Playoffs contention. They have 14 wins and 20 losses and defeated the Mercury 86-77 as Kayla McBride nailed 18 points.

    The race to the last two Playoffs spots as four teams in Atlanta Dream, Minnesota Lynx, New York Liberty, and Phoenix Mercury are all tied with 14 wins and 20 losses. A win here will give the Lynx a huge boost.

    Host: Minnesota Lynx
    Visitors: Seattle Storm
    Match Timing: 13 August, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Target Center

    WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Storm’s wayward lately

    The Storm have won five of the last ten games and fatigue has been surely catching up to the squad. Their offense can be wayward but the bigger factor has been that they have been playing a lot of elite squads which have derailed them a bit. Breanna Stewart has continued to dominate offensively while Jewell Loyd has been inconsistent in terms of field goal percentage. The Storm needs more from the supporting cast around Breanna.

    Lynx’s made a hard push

    The Lynx lost their way to start the season with just three wins and 13 losses but their experience has enabled them to win 11 and lost seven games since then, which implies that they have improved quite a bit. The Lynx has received significant production from Moriah Jefferson lately alongside Kayla McBride which has helped cover the absence of Aerial Powers a bit. This is a big game for the Lynx and they lost to the Storm 77-89 last these two met.

    Stewart continues to dominate the offensive end through her ability to both play off the ball and creating shots off the dribble. I believe she will be in 25-31 points and 8-11 rebounds range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.

    Sylvia Fowles(MIN)
    Points: 16
    Rebounds: 09
    Assists: 01

    Jewell Loyd(SEA)
    Points: 18
    Rebounds: 04

    Kayla McBride(MIN)
    Points: 18
    Rebounds: 02

    Tina Charles(SEA)
    Points: 14
    Rebounds: 07
    Assists: 03
    Blocks: 01
    Center Charles is an elite scorer but her fit sometimes raises questions at this point of her career, as winning results can dry up at times. I believe she will be in 12-18 points and 7-11 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 21-32

    MIN vs SEA DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Sue Bird(SEA) had 10 points, 8 assists, 3 steals in the last game. Bird is in the last season of her career and continues to be one of the best playmakers even at this point of her career. I believe she will be in 8-14 points and 6-9 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 23-33
    • Jessica Shepard(MIN) had 15 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block, 1 steal in the last game. Forward Shepard is an elite rebounder and has been giving great 25-30 minutes on both ends. I believe she will be in 7-11 points, 7-10 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks/steals range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-26
    • Aerial Powers(MIN) had 14 points, 2 rebounds in the last game. Forward Powers has been on fire on the offensive on the second half of the season. I believe she will be in 11-16 points range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-22
    • Gabby Williams(SEA) had 21 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals in the last game. Forward Williams is an elite defender with a penchant for all-around chops. I believe she will be in 7-11 points, 5-8 rebounds, and 4-6 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-40
    • Napheesa Collier(MIN) had 11 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist in the last game. Forward Collier has been back after missing all of the season and can do a decent job of scoring at the moment. I believe she will be in 10-15 points range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-23
    • Ezi Magbebor(SEA) had 13 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist  in the last game. Big Ezi’s role has been reduced and that is why her production has fallen.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
    • Rachel Banham(MIN) had 6 points, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Guard Banham can shoot from the deep. I believe she will be in 6-9 points range.
