WAS vs CON Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Washington Mystics vs Connecticut Sun

Share

WAS vs CON Dream11: We are on the deadline for the All-Star Voting scenario. And I have already taken my picks related to the Game as the deadline will close in a couple of days. The halfway mark of the WNBA is also here and this has been another fun season, which is one of the most intense windows as teams start to figure each other out. In this game, the Washington Mystics will host the Connecticut Sun.

The Mystics started on a terrific rhythm but have lost their way lately. They have 10 wins and seven losses, with Elena Della-Donne playing in alternate games. They come into this contest after losing to the Liberty 65:77 despite a 17 points effort by Natasha Cloud. On the other hand, the Connecticut Sun has been unstoppable. They have won 12 out of their 16 games, in the second position next to the Aces. They defeated the Storm 82:71 in the last game as DeWanna Bonner took over the game in the last quarter and popped in 20 points. Can the Mystics tackle the high-scoring Sun?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Mystics need Elena Della-Donne

Elena has played in alternate games as stated above and when she plays, the Mystics have won seven out of their 10 games, whereas they have lost four and won three without her, clearly indicating her worth. The offense looks better with the astounding scorer whereas the team is yet to acquire a cohesive offensive rhythm. Their defense has been brilliant and they will hope that Natasha Cloud and Ariel Atkins get it going soon. Can the Mystics develop a more sustainable rhythm?

Sun is developing into a championship squad
The Sun has become a better offensive team than the last season and having Alyssa Thomas in the lineup helps them push up the pace as she can perform multiple jobs. Courtney Williams despite her offensive struggles helps push the pace whereas DeWanna Bonner has been spectacular. Meanwhile, Brionna Jones has been a big factor off the bench, and overall, the Sun has both knockdown shooters and tough low-post players.
