The San Antonio Stars need a win after losing five of their last six games. The San Antonio Stars are averaging 70 points on 40.2 percent shooting and are allowing 77.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Sophia Young-Malcolm is averaging 12.4 points and five rebounds while Danielle Robinson is averaging 10.7 points and 5.3 assists. Dearica Hamby is grabbing 5.9 rebounds and Sydney Colson is dishing 2.6 assists. The San Antonio Stars have scored a combined 117 points in their last two games, and the lack of scoring is due to missing their top two players in Kayla McBride and Jia Perkins. The Stars have won three straight home games and are 3-3 SU overall.
The Shock are 18-5-3 ATS in their last 26 Friday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The Stars are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a S.U. loss and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Friday games. The Shock are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in San Antonio and 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Shock are still putting up boatloads of points without Diggins on the court, and they've owned the Stars ATS for quite some time now. In fact, Tulsa has also won four of the last five meetings SU. With the way the Stars are playing, this will be another loss.
