  • NYL vs CHI Dream11

    NYL vs CHI Dream11: The Las Vegas Aces and the Seattle Storm have made it to the Second Round without a scratch and now just two series remain in first round. We are yet to see which team among the Connecticut Sun and the Dallas Wings will qualify. And the same goes for the New York Liberty which will meet the Chicago Sky here.

    The Sky avenged their Game 1 loss in a brutal fashion, winning with a superb scoreline of 100-62 behind a 20 points effort by Kaleah Copper. This came after Liberty’s seven-point win earlier and no doubt, they must have been woken up by this affair.

    In the strange best of three scenario, the game will shift to the home floor of the Liberty to conclude the series. Will the Sky triumph again?

    Host: New York Liberty
    Visitors: Chicago Sky

    Match Timing: 24 August, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
    Venue: Barclays Center

    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Sky knows how to respond

    The Sky seemed to completely ignore the Game 1 drubbing and came in Game 2 with much more intensity right from the opening tip. They didn’t allow any Liberty starter to even kiss the 10-point mark and jumped out to a strong 31-10 first-quarter advantage. Then they only worsened things matters in the third quarter, when they almost scored twice as much as Liberty, shutting them down below 20 in each quarter and scoring 31 points in two of the four quarters.

    The Liberty shot merely 33% from the field whereas Sky shot 50%+ but like last game, were in sub-20 percentage-wise from the three-point line. Sky outrebounded the Liberty once again and had an overwhelming 45-28 edge on the rebounding end. They forced 19 turnovers while committing just 10 themselves, pricing out a big advantage in that regard. It was a highly impressive effort from the Sky overall. Can the Liberty avoid an early onslaught on their home floor? Or will the Sky advance to the next round as was expected before the series?

    Performance Predictions

    Highest scorer: Sabrina Ionescu: 24
    Highest rebounder: Candace Parker: 12
    Top assists maker: Courtney Vandersloot: 8
    Score Prediction: Sky: 84   Liberty: 80

    Verdict: I see the Liberty come with a strong effort early on but then I see the Sky’s experience and defense bailing them out. This can be a thriller.

    *Last Game numbers*
    Candace Parker(CHI)
    Points: 12
    Rebounds: 12
    Assists: 04
    Blocks: 02
    Parker doesn’t need to score a ton of points to make an impact and is an elite rebounder, above-average passer, and a top defender. I believe she will be in 12-16 points, 8-12 rebounds, 4-6 assists, and 1-3 steals/blocks range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 WNBA Prediction scenario.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 33-44

    Sabrina Ionescu(NYL)
    Points: 07
    Rebounds: 05
    Assists: 03
    While Ionescu is an impressive 11/17 from the field in the first two games, she will need to do heavy lifting if the Liberty wants to advance. I believe she will be in 16+ points, 6-9 assists, and 5-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 38-51

    Courtney Vandersloot(CHI)
    Points: 16
    Assists: 09
    Rebounds: 04
    Steals: 03
    Sloot is one of the best passers to play and her high-quality scoring and sturdy leadership make the Sky a dominating team. I believe she will be in 12-18 points, 7-11 assists, and 1-3 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-44
    NYL vs CHI Dream11

    Natasha Howard(NYL)
    Points: 08
    Rebounds: 02
    Assists: 00
    Steals: 01
    Natasha was 3/9 from the field in the last game and many times her contributions have been synonymous with Liberty wins. I believe she will be in 14-20 points and 5-8 rebounds range here.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-35

    Kahleah Copper(CHI)
    Points: 20
    Rebounds: 03

    Assists: 01
    Steals: 03
    Guard Kahleah is one of the most athletic presence who is strong both off-the-dribble and off-the-ball on offense. I believe she will be in 16-22 points, 3-5 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 25-36

    Betnijah Laney(NYL)
    Points: 02
    Rebounds: 02
    Assists: 03
    Steals: 01
    After a remarkable 17 points game, Laney was cooled down by the strict Sky defense but this is the game where she will have to get it done. I believe she will be in 11-16 points range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33

    NYL vs CHI DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

    • Emma Messeman(CHI) 
      Emma had 8 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal in the last game. While she is not posting big numbers, Emma brings veteran skills and can be an all-around threat. I believe she will be in 6-12 points, 6-9 rebounds, and 3-6 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-33
    • Allie Quigley (CHI)
      Quigley had 8 points, 8 assists, 1 rebounds, 2 steals. Guard Quigley has had some highly impressive passing games this season and can knock down tough shots. I believe she will be in 6-10 points and 3-5 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-30
    • Marine Johannes(NYL)
      Johannes had 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal in the last game. Guard Marine had virtually no impact on the proceedings but her sharpshooting and playmaking are vital. I believe she will be in 7-11 points and 4-7 assists range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-27
    • Azure Stevens(CHI)
      Azure had 14 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block in the last game. Stevens is one of the best bench players in the league whose offense keeps on stacking up big numbers. I believe she will be in 8-12 points and 4-6 rebounds range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 19-29
    • Stefanie Dolson(NYL)
      Dolson had 2 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block in the last game. Stefanie was also kept quiet in the last game and she is needed as a physical presence. I believe she will be in 6-10 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-24
    • Rebekah Gardner(CHI)
      Gardner had 11 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Gardner’s maiden WNBA season has earned her well-deserved praise as she has been a sparkplug off the bench.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 10-20
    • Crystal Dangerfield(NYL)
      Dangerfield had 4 points in the last game. Crystal can handle the ball quite a bit but her prediction has been off-the-ball at times with Sabrina running the show.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 6-12
    • Rebecca Allen(NYL)
      Rebecca had 5 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal in the last game. Rebecca has had a rather off-color season
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 4-9
    • Xu Han(NYL)
      Rebecca had 10 points, 5 rebounds, 1 block in the last game. Xu’s size enables her to finish over defenders but her lack of speed and springiness can affect the defensive pressure.
      Expected Fantasy Points Range: 4-9
