MIN vs SEA Dream11: The WNBA season is back and I love the WNBA because it presents you highly talented women who have gone through long collegiate basketball programs and have earned their due to play in this highly intriguing league. And in this game, the Minnesota Lynx will host the Seattle Storm.
The Minnesota Lynx lost in the Second Round of the Playoffs during the last season as they lost to the Chicago Sky. Sylvia Fowles and Naphessa Collier are back in the mix but the team surprisingly waived players like Crystal Dangerfield, the former Rookie of the Year and a talent like Lyshia Clanderon.
On the other hand, the Seattle Storm also lost their second round match-up versus the Phoenix Mercury during the last season. With Ezi Magbebor’s growth and the play of Breanna Stewart alongside veteran Sue Bird, it is clear that the team is setting their eyes on some higher avenues.
