The Connecticut Sun and Seattle Storm play late Tuesday night at the Key Arena.
The Connecticut Sun look to build on their three-game winning streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 73 points on 41.8 percent shooting and are allowing 68 points on 37.5 percent shooting. Alex Bentley is averaging 14.5 points and two assists while Kelsey Bone is averaging 14.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. Jasmine Thomas is dishing 3.8 assists and Alyssa Thomas is grabbing five rebounds. The Connecticut Sun have been the biggest surprise early, and it starts with an offense that has four double-digit scorers and is shooting 35.8 percent from downtown. The Sun are also getting it done on the defensive end, allowing a combined 129 points in their last two games. This is the Sun’s second road game of the season.

The Seattle Storm look to get a game above a .500 record. The Seattle Storm are averaging 65.2 points on 38.1 percent shooting and are allowing 69.2 points on 40.7 percent shooting. Renee Montgomery is averaging 10.8 points and 3.3 assists while Crystal Langhorne is averaging 9.3 points and 6.8 rebounds. Sue Bird is dishing 4.8 assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Seattle Storm aren’t getting it done offensively, as they’ve scored 60 or less points in two of their last three games and have just one double-digit scorer. The Storm need to find another consistent scorer to help shoulder the load. This is just the Storm’s second home game of the season.
The Sun are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Seattle.
The Storm usually play well on their home court and this is a long, long way for the Sun to travel. I look for the Storm to get a victory here and cover the small number.
