The best player for the Sun in that game was Alyssa Thomas who had 25 points, five rebounds, and four assists. The Sun come into this game averaging 79.8 points per game while giving up 80.6 points per game. The best offensive player for the Sun has been DeWanna Bonner who comes into this game averaging 18 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Phoenix Mercury who currently sit in 5th place in the Western Conference and coming into this game they have lost three of the last four games. The one win during that stretch for the Mercury was in their last game against the Washington Mystics, a game they were able to win by only a point. In the last game the star of the show was Diana Taurasi who put up 34 points and four rebounds. 

The Mercury are averaging 86.3 points while giving up 86 points per game. They are shooting 46.2 percent from the field while letting their opponents shoot 44.3 percent from the field. .Taurasi has been the best player on the team averaging 18.1 points and 4.9 assists per game. One problem for the Mercury is they are without Brittney Griner who has left the bubble. Griner was the team’s second leading scorer. 

Losing Griner is a big loss and that will be the difference as they struggle to find success in this game. Look for the Sun to find enough offensive success to cover the spread.
