The Dallas Wings and Los Angeles Sparks face off in their 13th game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Sunday.
The Dallas Wings come into this game having won two of the last three games with the one loss coming at the hands of the Minnesota Lynx. In that game they didn’t play terrible but they only managed 84 points while giving up 91. In the last game against the Washington Mystics it took overtime but the Wings came away with a 101-92 victory. Arike Ogunbowale was the best player for the Wings in the last game putting up 24 points and nine rebounds.
On the season the Wings are averaging 81.2 points per game while shooting 41.5 percent from the field. Their defense hasn’t been great giving up 84.7 points while letting opponents shoot 45.4 percent from the field. The best player for the Wings this season has been Ogunbowale and she is averaging 21.6 points while shooting 42.4 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Sparks who come into this game having won six games in a row. In the last game against the Atlanta Dream, it took overtime to get it done, but they were able to come away with a 93-85 victory. In that game, the best player for the Sparks was Chelsea Gray who has put up 20 points and five rebounds. In the last game, five players had at least ten points scored.
On the season the Sparks are averaging 86.5 points per game while shooting 47.4 percent from the field. On defense the Sparks are giving up 79 percent from the field while shooting 44.3 percent from the field.
This is going to be an intense basketball game but in the 4th quarter the Sparks are going to pull away late. Look for another big game from Gray and some of her supporting cast, and that will lead to the Sparks coming away with a victory and they will cover the spread.
