The Dallas Wings and Connecticut Sun face off in their ninth game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Wednesday
The Dallas Wings have struggled this season and coming into this game they have won only three games inside the bubble. One of the big issues for the Dallas Wings this season, when they have struggled, has been with their offense. In their last game the Wings scored only 79 points and the loss before that the offense only scored 68 points. On the season the Wings are averaging 80.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 84.5 points per game. Going forward the defense is going to need to be better if they want a chance to come away with a victory.
On other side of this matchup is the Connecticut Sun who lost their first five games of the season but they do come into this game having won two of their last three games. In the last game the offense was strong for the Sun putting up 93 points and that led to the victory. The previous win for the Suns they put up 93 points. As good as the offense has been as of late, the defense struggled giving up 100 points to the Chicago Sky. In the Sun’s last game it was Alyssa Thomas who was the star of the show putting up 21 points and seven rebounds.
The Sun come into this game averaging 81.8 points while giving up 83.4 points per game. DeWanna Bonner comes into this game averaging 18.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Thomas is also averaging 15.4 points and 10 rebounds per game.
The Wings are playing better basketball as of late and they are going to get the job done in this game. Look for the Sun to run up the score and that will be the difference in this game. Back Dallas to cover the spread in this game.
