In the last game took on a very bad Indiana Fever team but the Storm’s defense struggled giving up 90 points and that led to the loss. In the last game Jewell Lloyd was the star of the show putting up 35 points, but with the way their defense let them down it wasn’t enough to come away with a loss. On the season the Storm are averaging 87.6 points while shooting 47.8 percent from the field.
On defense, the Storm are giving up 73.8 points while letting opponents shoot 38.7 percent from the field. Breanna Stewart has been the best player for the Storm averaging 18.5 points while shooting 49.4 percent from the field. The Storm are a three point team shooting team first, but when they go cold, there is usually struggles.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Aces who have been playing really well coming into this game having won eight of the last nine games. The only loss during that stretch was a few games ago against the Connecticut Sun a game they only lost by two points. In the last game the Las Vegas Aces was strong putting up 99 points while giving up 78 points against the Connecticut Sun.
