The Phoenix Mercury and Atlanta Dream face off in their fifth WNBA game Monday inside the WNBA bubble at the IMG Academy.

The Phoenix Mercury got out to a slow start inside the bubble losing the first two games, but since that point they have played better winning two games in a row. The defense really struggled in the first two games and the Mercury’s offense couldn’t make up for it. In the third game the Mercury’s offense made up for it, and in the fourth game their defense stepped up in a big way against the New York Liberty giving up only 67 points.

In the last two games, the Mercury’s offense is averaging 99 points per game. The star of the Mercury is Bria Hartley who is averaging 19.8 points per game and 4.5 rebounds per game. Brittney Griner is averaging 16.3 points and seven rebounds per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Atlanta Dream who also comes into this game with a 2-2 record. To start off the season the Dream’s offense was elite putting up 105 points and that led to a ten-point victory. Outside of the Dream’s first game, they haven’t been an elite offensive team and they need the offense to be better. In the last game the Dream took on the Indiana Fever and in that game they lost 93-77. 

So far this season the Dream are led by Betnijah Laney who is averaging 17.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. Elizabeth Williams has also been strong for this team hitting 15.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Kennedy Carter has also been strong for this team hitting 15.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. In this game if they want to win this game, 

The Dream’s defense has let them down and that is going to let them down in this game. The Mercury’s offense is going to find success running up the score and that will lead to this game going over the total and Phoenix will win and cover the spread. These two plays could be parlayed together.
