The curtains will fall on the basketball section of the Olympics with this game and what a fitting end will it be! In this game, the USA team will encounter the host Japan to settle the score for the gold medal. More about USA W vs JPN W Dream 11 will be given below
USA W vs JPN W Dream 11 Prediction
Japan has already achieved a lot considering the expectations that were placed upon them. They have beaten Japan twice, ousted Belgium, and played a great game against the USA earlier in the group stage. Well, in this game, they are facing a team that is on a 54 game winning streak in the Olympics, what more one can say! A Frontline of Stewart, Griner, and Wilson has absolutely overwhelmed the oppositions and there is just too much talent there. Although Rui Machida has been having a historical time out there making assists, Japan has little to no chance against this Forward-Center heavy USA team that keeps on piling the pain on both sides of the floor. Can Japan win here? Highly unlikely. Have they won the hearts of many people? Surely, they will get at least a silver medal, and although the USA has an overwhelming advantage if the Japanese win then this will perhaps be treated as one of the biggest miracles in the Olympics history for many reasons.

USA W vs JPN W Top Picks
*Points, rebounds, and assists from last game*
1. Breanna Stewart
PPG: 15.2 RPG: 9.2 APG: 4.6
Breanna has one of the best foot movements in the world and she can take over games on both sides of the floor. She has an array of offensive moves in her bag, but what makes her more impressive is her feel for the game. Her defense, rebounding, and playmaking all are top-notch and Stewart makes her team win games, as simple as that. Stewart’s talent makes her a candidate for Super Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Rui Machida
PPG: 7.0 APG: 13.8
Machida has already established her name in the Olympics cannons no matter what happens in this contest. Her excellent playmaking has been on another level as she has delivered a whopping 69 assists in just 5 games, this is an incredible achievement in itself. She has shown Japan the way to the Finals as a floor general and she deserves all the praise in the world. The playmaker can be picked as the Pro-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball setting.
3. Brittney Griner
PPG: 13.8 RPG: 7.6
Griner is a dominating player on both ends of the floor and is too much for the opposing Centers to handle. She can finish inside using her long frame but also has a more than decent face-up jumper and mid-range game. She is also a high-quality rebounder and complements Wilson and Stewart perfectly in the Front Court.
4. Yuki Miyazawa
PPG: 13.2 RPG: 4.2
Yuki is a high-class Power Forward and has enabled Japan to make it so far. Her shooting touch gives Japan an additional option at the perimeter and her presence makes it easier for them to run their offense. Miyazawa has contributed in multiple areas and will play a huge role against the big frontline of the USA.
5. A’Ja Wilson
PPG: 16.0 RPG: 7.4
Wilson edges Breanna by a whisker when it comes to the highest PPG for the USA in Tokyo 2020 Olympics so far. And that has also been the case between these two in the WNBA in terms of fighting for the MVP award. Like Stewart, Wilson gives a lot of options in one player. She uses her athletic body to get inside openings, shoots from mid-range, while hoarding rebounds, and playing elite defense.
6. Maki Takada
PPG: 13.4 RPG: 4.2
Takada is undersized at the Center spot, especially against the USA but makes up for it with her calm manner of play. She can shoot and drive to the rim, but chooses her shots carefully, thus making her a great team player. Maki also hustles on the defensive side and makes up for her lack of size in a variety of ways.
7. Chelsea Gray
8. Saki Hayashi
9. Tina Charles
10. Himawari Akaho
11. Moeko Nagaoka
