The Indiana Fever and Atlanta Dream face off in their 16th game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Tuesday.
The Indiana Fever have had a lot of issues inside the bubble and coming into this game they have lost three games in a row. In the last game against the Dallas Wings, they were competitive, but in the fourth quarter they were outscored by six points and that led to a four point loss. Kelsey Mitchell was the star of the show in the last game putting up 19 points, four rebounds, and two assists.
The Fever come into this game averaging 81 points per game while the defense is giving up 86.5 points per game. Kelsey Mitchell has been the best player all season for the Fever averaging 18..5 points while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. Her sister Tiffany Mitchell has also had success averaging 14 points while shooting 35.9 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Atlanta Dream who also haven’t had a lot of success this season and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. The Dream’s last game against the Los Angeles Sparks they were competitive, but some struggles in the second half really let them down. Chennedy Carter was the best player in the last game putting up 26 points, four rebounds, and one assist.
The Dream are averaging 80.1 points per game while they are shooting 44.5 percent from the field. On defense they are giving up 90.3 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 46.8 percent from the field. Carter has been banged up, but she has still found success averaging 16.5 points while shooting 46.5 percent from the field.
The Fever know to have success they need to keep the pace slow and they will find success doing that. Look for both teams to struggle to score in this game and that will keep this game under the total.
