NYL vs PHO Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 28 August


How the tables have turned. New York Liberty were aiming for the highest point in the Eastern Conference, but reasons such as their topsy-turvy form and never-ending injury issues, have halted their progress. Phoenix Mercury, on the other hand, have turned their form around and are one of the hottest teams in the WNBA on current form. This game could be a spectacle as Liberty, at home, will look to get the win over Mercury at Barclays Center on early Saturday morning (IST). Here is everything you want to know about NYL vs PHO Dream 11 Match Prediction.

NYL vs PHO Dream 11 Prediction

New York Liberty have won just once in the last six games, and only three times in the last 10 encounters. That return has pushed them 8.5 games behind current Eastern Conference leader Connecticut Sun (19-6). Phoenix Mercury are fourth in the Western Conference, but they carry a five-game winning run, which makes them hot favourites in this particular encounter.
