The Connecticut Sun need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 76.2 points on 42.3 percent shooting and allowing 76.8 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Kelsey Bone is averaging 14 points and 6.2 rebounds while Shekinna Stricklen is averaging 8.4 points and 1.9 rebounds.

The Connecticut Sun are coming off a big win over the Chicago Sky and still have a shot at a playoff spot if they can win out.

The Sun are 6-8 SU on the road and have lost five of their last six.

The Indiana Fever look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 78.5 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 76.8 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Tamika Catchings is averaging 13.3 points and 6.9 rebounds while Shenise Johnson is averaging 11.8 points and five rebounds. Marissa Coleman is the third double-digit scorer and Lynetta Kizer is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Indiana Fever look to snap a three-game skid and avoid falling to the fourth seed in the East. The Fever haven’t lost four straight all season. The Fever are 9-6 SU on their home court and have won eight of their last 10. Briann January is questionable with a knee injury.
The Sun are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Fever are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Fever know they need to snap this losing skid they've started recently and can't afford to drop to the fourth seed in the playoff race. I look for Indiana to wake up and beat a Sun squad that is in a letdown spot after beating the Sky.
