WAS vs DAL Dream11: The WNBA is in full flow and we have already seen some riveting battles. Anyway, let us cut to the chase, and jump in this battle between the Washington Mystics and the Dallas Wings. The Mystics have won their first three games while the Wings lost their first game against the Dream.
The Mystics have shown amazing two-way balance so far while the Wings saw the recurring offensive troubles in Game 1 as once again they whittled. Will the Wings figure out their offense in a tough game versus Washington?
Host: Washington Mystics
Visitors: Dallas Wings
Match Timing: 14 May, @ 04:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Entertainment & Sports Arena
Mystics look formidable, Wings need more
The Mystics look a different team when Elena Della-Donne is active, if things are not working on the offensive end, they can bank on her ability to unsettle the opposition’s defense. Myisha Hines-Allen has looked in terrific touch while the bench of the team also looks promising. Will the team be able to make a Postseason run?
The Wings’ offense has been troubled and Arike Ogunbowale for all her offensive gifts can be susceptible to tough shooting nights. Marina Mabrey is a tremendous offensive player and this can be a breakout season for her meanwhile Allisha Grey, Kayla Thoronton, and Isabelle Harrison will need to do more. Can rookie Veronica Burton help out the Wings this season, although her offense is still not at the WNBA level.

NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Elena has one of the best footwork in the league and she can be a huge factor on the offensive end. I expect her to be in 17-26 points and 5-7 rebounds range. She can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-35
Arike is a tremendous iso scorer but can have recurring shooting troubles as she had in the last game, when she shot 3/14 from the last game. I believe she will be in 15-21 points range
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-32
Myisha Hines-Allen (WAS)
Myisha is an effective slasher who can also act as a rebounder and dished some lovely dimes after getting lanes in the paint. I believe she will be in 13-18 points, 6-8 rebounds, and 3-5 assists range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 30-42
Guard Mabrey shot 8/16 in the last game and she has been doing a great job as a scorer off the bench. I believe she will be in 15-21 points range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 20-31
Guard Ariel has a brilliant jumpshot and can also take it to the rack off-the-dribble. I believe she will be in 12-17 points and 1-3 steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 24-34
Allisha shot just 3/12 in the last game but she can be an electric two-way presence through her all-around prowess. I believe she will be in 12-16 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 steals/blocks range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-40
