MIN vs WAS Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 5 September


With the WNBA Playoffs at the cusp, the picture is clearer by each day as the season turns to its most important section soon. In this game, the perennial in-form squad Minnesota Lynx takes on a struggling squad in Washington Mystics. More about MIN vs WAS Dream 11 will be provided here.

MIN vs WAS Dream 11 Prediction

The Mystics have suffered from injuries as both Tina Charles and Elene Della Donne have not played regularly. They have had to heavily rely on Ariel Atkins, Natasha Cloud, and Myisha Hines-Allen as the bench has gotten thinner. The Mystics rank ninth in the Defensive rating out of the twelve teams and have leaked too many points at times. On the other hand, Lynx has continued to be among the top teams in the league this season and is the third-best defensive team if we talk about Points Allowed Per Game at 78.5 PPG. While McBride, Fowles, and Collier have done as expected, it is Bridget Carleton who has made key buckets and played some terrific defense down the stretch. Mystics will need to put more pressure on the defense as the Lynx are the second-best shooting team making 45% of their shots. Lynx has the advantage both form-wise and record-wise.

MIN vs WAS Top Picks

(Last Match Stats)

Sylvia Fowles
Points: 15
Rebounds: 17
Assists: 01
Sylvia is a veteran Center who is well known for her finishing abilities inside. She showed her full repertoire in the last game against the Sparks, giving fake inside to unsettle the defense, making hard cuts, and being in the right positions to finish. Her rebounding and her defense make her a prototypical Center and the Lynx struggle without her to hold the fort. Fowles is averaging 16.6 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 1.8 SPG, and 1.8 BPG, leading her team in all those categories.

Ariel Atkins
Points: 16
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 00
Atkins is a terrific shooter and uses an array of dribble moves to set herself free against tough defenses. However, her shot selection has been iffy at times, and her shooting percentage is 40.2% right now but it is more so because defenses have crowded on her in absence of Ellena and Charles. Atkins is averaging 15.5 PPG.

Napheesa Collier
Points: 05
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 04
Napheesa is the future of this league and has shown a lot of promise in her young career. She fights hard on the boards, uses her silky-smooth footwork to carve space on low-post, and also has the ability to ring it from deep-range. She is averaging 16.0 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 3.0 APG this season along with 1.3 BPG and 1.25 SPG.

Myisha Hines-Allen
Points: 16
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 05
Myisha has had 15+ points outings four times in a row and it is majorly due to Charles and Ellena missing in action. The lefty big uses her frame well to generate inside production, and uses an array of fakes to get defenders off the feet and can also shoot over them. Myisha is averaging 13.8 PPG and 7.3 RPG for the season.

Kayla McBride
Points: 17
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 02
It is a pleasure to witness the left-handed Kayla McBride as she uses a number of moves to generate her offense. She can put it on the floor and use her signature floaters and runners knowing when to release the ball over bigger players and also has a lovely shooting touch. Her ability to get in the teeth of defense also enables her to stack free throws. She is averaging 14.2 PPG and 3.7 RPG.

Natasha Cloud
Points: 05
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 12
Cloud is an excellent dribbler, using behind-the-back moves, crossovers, and dribble fakes. She is primarily a playmaker in this team but her ability to shoot pull-ups, fadeaways, and side-step jumpers also make her a viable scorer. The guard is averaging 7.5 PPG and 6.7 APG along with 1.1 SPG.

Rachel Banham
Points: 08
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 00

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough
Points: 17
Rebounds: 01
Assists: 01

Ariel Powers
Points: 13
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 02

Leilani Mitchell
Points: 07
Rebounds: 00
Assists: 01

Note: Tina Charles is averaging 25.4 PPG and 9.7 RPG but is questionable for the game.
