The Connecticut Sun should be favored as they're playing their best ball of the season, they're arguably the most talented team in the league, and they're fighting for that second seed in the playoffs. The Los Angeles Sparks have been terrible over these last two weeks, and it's hard to find confidence to back them. With all that said, the Sparks still have a chance at a playoff spot and this is a must win game if they're going to stay in the race. The Sparks just beat a good Washington team on the road, and they end the year with 3 straight home games. The path is there for the Sparks. I expect a motivated performance. Give me the points.
