SEA vs WAS Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 8 September


WNBA has some of the best athletes in the world who come in the league after rigorous work put in during school, college, and now professional setup. Here, the defending champions Seattle Storm are going to battle it out against a struggling Washington Mystics. More about SEA vs WAS Dream11 will be provided here.

SEA vs WAS Dream11 Prediction

Storm: Seattle ranks second in PPG with 84.9 and it is not surprising for a team that has talents like Sue Bird, Breanna Stewart, and Jewell Lloyd who can kill defenses in multiple ways. Seattle has been more inconsistent than expected but they still are the title contenders considering their depth and the weapons they have in the starting lineup and off the bench.

Mystics: Tina Charles has returned from injury but the Mystics have not figured out this season how they’re going to counter powerhouses like Seattle. They are not terrible either offensively or defensively but inconsistency and injuries to Tina Charles and Elena Delle Donne have hurt the front-line of the team even though Hines-Allen has done her best to hold the fort. Ariel Atkins and Cloud have played some brilliant basketball lately so Seattle would have to fight one out here.

SEA vs WAS Top Picks

*stats from the last match*
Breanna Stewart
Points: 33
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 05
PPG: 20.7   RPG: 9.8    BPG: 1.8    SPG: 1.1
Stewart is a complete player on both ends of the floor. She can remind one of Storm’s championship-winning Lauren Jackson, who is going to be Hall of Fame soon. Breanna is a wonderful shooter, can put it on the floor and drive while having a wonderful low-post game. Stewart doesn’t care if you double-team her and can finish in traffic. She can also play elite defense and rebound terrifically.

Ariel Atkins
Points: 25
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 00
PPG: 15.8     SPG: 1.7
Ariel is one of the best scorers in the league and can heat up real quick. Atkins has a lot of weapons, from shooting to driving to the length of the rim but she sometimes takes a ton of defensive pressure because of Mystics’ lack of scoring at the guard-SF position relegating her to a shooting % of 40.3.

Jewell Lloyd
Points: 08
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 04
PPG: 17.6    RPG: 4.1    APG: 3.7     SPG: 1.5
Lloyd is a bonafide scorer at the two-guard position and has an array of moves in her bag. She can shoot from outside while she also changes direction well and gets inside to finish at the room. She can also hold down rebounds and set up her teammates for easy buckets making her a complete offensive machine.

Tina Charles
Points: 12
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 00
PPG: 24.8   RPG: 9.6    SPG: 1.1

Tina leads the WNBA in PPG and it is not surprising since she has such an imposing offensive game. She can get inside in the post and finish over defenders, while her shooting arsenal involves fadeaways, off-the-catch jumpers, and also an in-between game. She is also a relentless rebounder and without her Mystics falls apart on the offensive side.

Sue Bird
Points: 07
Rebounds: 02
Assists: 03
PPG: 10.3   APG: 5.4   SPG: 1.0
Sue has been a stellar player for around two decades now, yes around 20 years! She is the primary ball-handler and acts as a floor general while she can make pull-ups in open court situations and also possesses fadeaways, drives, and a plethora of other moves.

Natasha Cloud
Points: 12
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 06
PPG: 7.7   RPG: 3.6    APG: 6.6   SPG: 1.2

Cloud is a highly talented guard who has played some inspirational basketball lately. She is the designated dribbler for the Mystics at the perimeter and her superb vision allows her to complete passes on tough angles. Natasha also displays a great shooting game and can also make shots with a hand in her face.

Mercedes Russell
Points: 14
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 01
PPG: 7.0   RPG: 6.1

Shatori Walker-Kimbrough
Points: 06
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 05
PPG: 6.5

Katie Lou Samuelson
Points: 09
Rebounds: 06
Assists: 03
PPG: 6.8   RPG: 3.5

Megan Gustafson
Points: 07
Rebounds: 07
Assists: 00
PPG: 3.6   RPG: 3.6
