The Atlanta Dream and Las Vegas Aces face off in their second WNBA season on Wednesday at IMG Academy.
The Atlanta Dream had their first game of the season against the Dallas Wings, and they were quite impressive in those games. In that first game against the Wings, they scored at least 26 points and in the 4th quarter they scored 31 points. And that sealed the game. The Dream had five different players score at least 16 points. The star of the show for the Dream was Monique Billings who put up 30 points and 13 rebounds. As impressive as the offense was the defense really has to be a big issue after giving up 95 points. In that game they had two different players put up 19 points. The Dream like to play at a faster pace of game, but in this game, they need to try and focus a little more on the defense. The offense can make up for bad defense, but at some point their struggles on the defense could really hurt them.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Aces who were competitive in their first game against the Chicago Sky, In that game, the Aces put up 86 points, but they were outscored by six points in the 4th quarter and that led to a two point loss. The Aces got out to a fast start in that game, but that last quarter really let them down. The defense did struggle giving up 88 points and in this game, they need the defense to step up. The star of the show for the Aces in the first game was Angel McCoughtry who put up 25 points, eight rebounds, and two assists. A’ja Wilson was also strong for the team putting up 22 points and 11 rebounds.
The Sky were decent in the first game but their troubles on defense is going to let them down against the Dream. Look for Atlanta to run up the score and the Aces won’t have enough offense to keep it close. Back Atlanta to win the game and cover the spread.
