The Las Vegas Aces (LVA) will be facing the New York Liberty (NYL) for their upcoming WNBA regular-season game. The game is scheduled on Tuesday, June 15, 10:00 PM EST (Wednesday, June 16, 7:30 PM IST) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Paradise, Nevada. Here is a look at the LVA vs NYL Dream11 prediction and LVA vs NYL Dream11 team.
The Las Vegas Aces will face Liberty with possibly an advantage, currently ranked second in the league and the Western Conference with eight wins and three losses. With a 6-4 (win-loss) record of their own, New York are ranked fourth in the league and second in the Eastern Conference. The Liberty last beat Phoenix Mercury with a narrow 85-83 margin. Las Vegas, on their end, bagged a comfortable 85-78 victory over the Satou Sallaby-led Dallas Wings.
The New York Liberty vs. the Las Vegas Aces at 10 p.m. ET is the must-watch WNBA game tonight, even though it will be played without Sabrina Ionescu and Natasha Howard. The Liberty have proven to be entertaining even when some of their stars are out and a win against Vegas would put them at 7-4 and get them back in contender talks.
New York lost three in a row after starting 5-1, but bounced back with a two-point win over Phoenix on Sunday. Betnijah Laney had 23 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds and just one turnover as the Liberty found a way to best a Mercury team that received signature performances from its two superstars, Brittney Griner and Skylar Diggins-Smith.
There is so much excitement surrounding New York after that win as there was to begin the season. The Liberty know it was a big win because it came without Ionescu and Howard. When they get those two back, they will really be dangerous.
Of course, the Aces were the preseason favorites and stand at 8-3 for a reason. They have even more talent than the Mercury with their ability to throw A’ja Wilson, Liz Cambage, Chelsea Gray, Dearica Hamby, Jackie Young and Kelsey Plum at you. Ramifications aside (these are the third- and fourth-place teams in the league), the Aces are always worth the price of admission and may be the best show in the WNBA right now aside from maybe the Seattle Storm. A’ja Wilson earned her team a vote in that race with 28 points and 14 rebounds in Vegas’ Sunday win over Dallas.
Before the Liberty and Aces square off, the first-place Storm take on the last-place Fever at 7 p.m. ET and the Sky face the Lynx at 9 p.m. ET.
Seattle will be looking for its fourth win in a row, while Indiana will be looking to break a seven-game skid. The Sky are looking to get rolling now that Candace Parker has put up her first quality stat line since returning from an ankle injury, while the Lynx will look to win
