The Connecticut Sun and Dallas Wings face off in their sixth game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy.
To say the Connecticut Sun have struggled this season might be an understatement. Coming into this game the Sun haven’t won a game yet this season and they really haven’t been all that competitive this season. In the last game, the Sun’s offense wasn’t great against the Seattle Storm and their defense was even worse. Against the Storm, the Sun only scored 74 points, while giving up 87. The offense has been an issue all season for the Sun. Overall this season the Sun are averaging 75.4 points per game while their defense is giving up 83.4 points per game.
On offense the Sun’s best player is DeWanna Bonner who comes into this game averaging 23 points per game. Alyssa Thomas has also found a lot of success putting up 15.2 points per game while also 11.4 rebounds per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dallas Wings who have been up and down and currently sit with a 2-3 record.In the last game against the Chicago Sky, the Wings played pretty well but they lost by three points. On the season the Dallas Wings are averaging 82.6 points while giving up 83.8 points per game. In this game the defense is going to need to be a lot better if they want a chance to come away with the victory.
Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 20.0 points, 2.2 assists, and 1.6 rebounds per game. In this game if she can have a big game that is going to be very helpful for their chances to come away with a big victory in this one.
These are two teams who really haven’t been able to be trusted yet this season which makes this game one you should probably bet lightly. That being said there is no way we can trust the Sun who still don’t have a win yet on this season. Look for the Wings offense to step up and that will be enough to come away with a win.
