SEA vs PHO Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 27 September


The WNBA Playoffs have arrived and right now are cooking up the elimination round. In this game, Seattle Storm takes on Phoenix Mercury in a must-win scenario. More information about the SEA vs PHO Dream11 scenario will be given here.

SEA vs PHO Dream11 Prediction

Storm has to now win without Breanna Stewart but they still have high hopes as Jewell Loyd can pull in a number of points. Seattle runs a sound offense but without Breanna, the ball movement is going to take a hit. However, Ezi Magbebor and Mercedes Russell have now shown the will to finish plays inside. Katie Lou Samuelson will need to seep in more production now against a deep Mercury team.

Phoenix runs a slow-paced offense and Mercury can execute using Griner inside the paint while Diggins-Smith-Nurse-Cunningham-Peddy can rise for jumpers. Mercury has a ton of talent at all fronts and plays hard on the defensive end. Phoenix is also able to get hard on boards with Turner and Griner gobbling up rebounds at an elite rate. This is a must-win game for both teams if they are to advance further so the room error is low. Mercury has struggled to close out games without Taurasi and Seattle is missing Breanna as well, level-playing field indeed.

SEA vs PHO Top Picks

*stats from last game*

Jewell Loyd
Points Per Game: 17.9
Rebounds Per Game: 4.0
Assists Per Game: 3.8
Steals Per Game: 1.5
Loyd is an engine when it comes to offense. She can be a terror in an open court situation and can either pull up in transition and also lay it in. Jewell is a terrific dribbler and can also find open teammates. She has an array of moves such as fadeaways, pull-ups, turnaround jumpers, runners, floaters, jab-steps, etc.

Brittney Griner
Points: 16
Rebounds: 10
Assists: 06
Blocks: 03
Brittney is one of the tallest players in the WNBA, however, her skill set is more than about her size. Griner can hit fadeaways in face-up situations, make mid-range jumpers but her specialty is going on low-block. She also has hooks, change-of-hands layups, and scoop layups as well. Her rebounding and defense add to her versatile arsenal.

Sue Bird
Points Per Game: 10.0
Assists Per Game: 5.3
Sue is a guard with a lot of talent and has been active in the league for around two decades now. Bird has a devastating pull-up jumper, can also hit fadeaways, take it to the hoop, and also off the catch jumpshots. Sue is one of the best passing guards to play the game of basketball and plays tough defense. 

Skylar Diggins-Smith
Points: 22
Rebounds: 04
Assists: 05
Blocks: 01
Skylar is a lefty guard with a lot of hangtime and an incredible loopy jumper. Diggins-Smith plays with a lot of gusto and has a lot of scoring moves. Skylar is also an amazing passer and her clutch game makes her a terrific player. She made four of ten threes in the last match.

Mercedes Russell
Points Per Game: 7.3
Rebounds Per Game: 6.1
Russell is exclusively a paint player and has a power game around the rim. Her role has increased in the wake of an injury to Breanna Stewart. Mercedes is also a superb rebounder and plays tough on both ends of the floor.

Brianna Turner
Points: 12
Rebounds: 09
Assists: 05
Blocks: 01
Breanna’s game has a lot of similarities with Mercedes and both perform similar roles for their respective teams. Turner is one of the best rebounders in the league and can also put up a ton of points on offensive rebounding. She made the game-winning free throw in the game versus Liberty.

Katie Lou Samuelson
Points Per Game: 7.0
Rebounds Per Game: 3.5

Shey Peddy
Points: 04
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 01
Steals: 03

Ezi Magbebor
