The Los Angeles Sparks and Dallas Wings meet Friday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.

The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 84.8 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 78.3 points on 47.7 percent shooting.

Chelsea Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Alana Beard is dishing 2.2 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 41.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.6 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 38.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.8 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Sparks have lost seven of their last 11 road games.
The Dallas Wings need a nice home win here that would snap a three-game losing streak. The Dallas Wings are averaging 83.2 points on 41.9 percent shooting and allowing 85.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 15.8 points and 5.5 assists while Karima Christmas-Kelly is averaging 12.5 points and 4.5 rebounds. Allisha Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Glory Johnson is grabbing 8.8 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 27.9 percent from beyond the arc and 82.3 percent from the free throw line.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Dallas Wings don't have a great record, but they've hung around in most of their games with three of their five losses coming by single digits. The Sparks are winning games and have been consistent, but they've have their struggles on the road dating back to last season and are still shaky on the defensive side. This is one of those games where I can see the Wings hanging around at home. I'll take my points.
