PHO vs CON Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 12 September

Share

The WNBA Regular Season has entered a crucial phase as teams fight for Playoffs seedings and make sure they finish the season in a great rhythm. In this match-up, two red-hot teams in Phoenix Mercury and Connecticut Sun face each other in a cross-conference affair. More information about the PHO vs CON Dream11 scenario will be imparted here.

PHO vs CON Dream11 Prediction

Two of the most slow-paced team in the league are going to square off in this game. Both teams like to play a half-court style of game and both teams have terrific post players and finishers at the rim. Both teams also play tough defense and while Mercury allows just 41.3% of the field goals, Connecticut is the best defensive team in all metrics, holding teams to just 70.2 PPG! Mercury is the second-best rebounding team with 36.6 RPG while Sun is in third place grabbing 36.3 RPG, which means these two are not far apart in this department. Such is the closeness of the competition, there is one huge contrast, while Mercury does get most of their production from Griner, guards Diana, Nurse, and Skylar form a guard-centric offense too, whereas, Sun has a dominating frontline in Bonner-Jonquel-Brionna that can score inside and create problems for the defense. This can be a mouth-watering contest considering Sun is entering on an eleven while Mercury is on a ten-game winning streak, which means finally one of these will see an end to the streak.

Rebounds: 14
Assists: 02
Steals: 03
PPG: 19.9    RPG: 11.0      SPG: 1.4      BPG: 1.2
Jones has played an MVP all season long and leads the league in rebounds per game. She is an all-around offensive threat, who can hit the perimeter jumper, put it on the floor, and create driving opportunities while also being a terrific low-post scorer. Her defense makes her one of the best two-way players to ever play the game of basketball.

Brittney Griner
Points: 21
Rebounds: 10
Assists: 02
PPG: 20.7     RPG: 9.4      BPG: 2.0
Griner is the tallest player at the Center position and of course, her size allows her to dominate on both ends. She has an excellent game sense and is more than about her size. Brittney can secure terrific low-post positions, finishing over defenders, using hook shots, drop-steps, switch hand layups, among an array of moves. She has terrific shooting balance and plays elite defense.

Brionna Jones
Points: 15
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 00
Blocks: 01
PPG: 14.9     RPG: 7.2       SPG: 1.4
Jones plays with fire in her belly and has one of the best inside games in the league. Brionna moves terrifically without the ball and uses her power to finish over big defenders while making tough drives. She shoots 57.6% from the floor and can also gobble up rebounds.

Skylar Diggins-Smith
Points: 13
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 05
Steals: 03
PPG: 18.3       APG: 5.2     RPG: 3.3       SPG: 1.1
The left-handed guard is one of the best scorers in the league and has the capacity to go for big nights. Skylar has a high-arcing jump shot while she can also use hesitation and combo moves to get right in the teeth of defense where she employs a terrific hangtime to finish with either hand. She can also act as a playmaker and has a superb court vision.

DeWanna Bonner
Points: 11
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 05
PPG: 15.5   RPG: 6.8    APG: 3.6    SPG: 1.3
Defenses are left to scratch their head against DeWanna who forms an imposing frontline with Jonquel and Brionna. She uses her lanky frame and shifty cuts to get inside and finish while also having a decent shooting game. Bonner works hard on defense and can also clamp on boards.

Brianna Turner
Points: 08
Rebounds: 15
Assists: 03
Steals: 01
PPG: 7.9    RPG: 9.6     
Brianna’s main job is to box out and stack up rebounds on both ends. She is a physical player who can pose defensive challenges to inside players while also having a tendency to get in the paint and create easy shot opportunities.
