The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun meet Thursday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Chicago Sky could use a win after splitting their last six games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 85.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting and are allowing 82.1 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 28.7 points and 9.9 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 17.1 points and 3.6 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 5.4 assists and Betnijah Laney is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Chicago Sky have topped 80 points in five of their last seven games. The problem is that the Sky are allowing teams to shoot 38.3 percent from deep and are giving those points up at the other end. Four of the Sky’s five losses this season have come on the road.

The Connecticut Sun look to remain hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 77.9 points on 42 percent shooting and are allowing 71.6 points on 40.8 percent shooting. Alex Bentley is averaging 16.2 points and 2.7 rebounds while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 10.7 points and 6.1 rebounds. Jasmine Thomas is dishing 3.3 assists and Camille Little is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun remain one of the more balanced teams in the league but are coming off a loss to the Fever in which they allowed 55.4 percent shooting. Both of the Sun's losses this season have come on their home court. Kelsey Bone is questionable with a possible suspension.
The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The Sun are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Sky are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Sun's showed some weakness in their last game and will now likely be without one of their top scorers for this contest. I look for the Sky to bounce back here.
