The Seattle Storm need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 70.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 77.8 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Crystal Langhorne is averaging 11.3 points and 5.9 rebounds while Sue Bird is averaging 10.3 points and 5.6 assists. Jenna O'Hea is dishing 2.5 assists and Jewell Loyd is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Seattle Storm continue to struggle on the offensive end as they’ve scored 69 or less points in four straight games. The Storm have lost eight of their last 10 games when scoring under 70 points. The Storm are 7-8 SU on their home court and have split their last six.
The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. The Lynx are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Seattle.
The Lynx have beaten the Storm in six straight meetings, but the most recent contest was fairly close. Also, the Lynx have been in cruise control lately and likely aren't going to take this game serious either. I think the Storm show up for the home crowd and play hard to end their losing streak to the Lynx.
