The Las Vegas Aces and Connecticut Sun face off in their 16th game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Thursday
The Las Vegas Aces have been strong this season and coming into this game they have won four of the last five games. The one loss for the Aces was in their last game against the Phoenix Mercury, a game they gave up 92 points in. This has been a defense that hasn’t been elite, but most of the time the Aces offense has made up for it. On the season the Aces are averaging 87.8 points per game while the defense is giving up 79.8 points per game.
A’Ja Wilson has been the best player for the Aces averaging 20.1 points while shooting 46.4 percent from the field. Angel McCoughtry comes into this game averaging 14.3 points while shooting 52.4 percent from the field.
The Connecticut Sun come into this game having won two games in a row, but this is a team that has been very up and down. In the Sun’s last game against the New York Liberty, they actually weren’t all that impressive but they were able to come away with a 70-65 victory. The Suns best player in the last game was DeWanna Bonner who put up 27 points and 12rebounds.
Coming into this game the Sun are averaging 78.8 points per game while shooting 42.5 percent from the field. Connecticut is letting opponents average 78.6 points per game while the defense is letting opponents shoot 44.7 percent from the field. The best player this season for the Sun has been Bonner who is averaging 18.4 points while shooting 40.9 percent from the field. Even with the success, Bonner is only shooting 25 percent from the field.
The Aces are the better team and the offense that the sun had in the last game is concerning to me. Look for Connecticut to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to Las Vegas having success in this game.
