The Connecticut Sun need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 75.1 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 76.9 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Kelsey Bone is averaging 14.7 points and 6.2 rebounds while Jasmine Thomas is averaging 8.3 points and 3.8 rebounds. Camille Little is grabbing 3.7 rebounds and Chelsea Gray is dishing 2.3 assists. The Connecticut Sun have scored under 70 points in four of their last seven games and just have to be happy the season is finally ending. Injuries have really killed the Sun in the second half of the season. The Sun are 7-9 SU on their home court and have lost four straight.
The Sky are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games following a ATS win. The Sun are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The Sky are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
I'm not sure how seriously the SKy are going to take this game given that the second seed is wrapped up. Meanwhile, the Sun would like to end their home losing skid and head into the offseason with a positive. I like the home team and the points here.
