The San Antonio Stars and Seattle Storm meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Key Arena on NBATV.
The San Antonio Stars are still looking for their first win after a brutal 0-10 start to the WNBA season. The San Antonio Stars are averaging 73.7 points on 41.4 percent shooting and allowing 82.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Kayla McBride is averaging 15.8 points and 2.4 assists while Isabelle Harrison is averaging 11.9 points and five rebounds. Monique Currie is the third double-digit scorer and Moriah Jefferson is dishing four assists. The San Antonio Stars are shooting 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 77.5 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Stars are allowing 28.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Stars haven't won a road game since September 13.
The Seattle Storm need a victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The Seattle Storm are averaging 83.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 82.6 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Jewell Loyd is averaging 19.8 points and 3.3 assists while Breanna Stewart is averaging 16.8 points and eight rebounds. Crystal Langhorne is the third double-digit scorer and Sue Bird is dishing 7.6 assists. The Seattle Storm are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 85.4 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.7 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won four of their last six home games.
Will update with trends once/if they're released.
The Seattle Storm have cooled off a bit the last week, but they're playing the worst team in the league, and they've blown the doors off the Stars in each of the last three meetings. San Antonio is averaging less than 70 points per game on the road, and that's not good when playing a Storm squad that can fill it up, especially at home where they shoot 47.6 percent from the field. This is a game where the Seattle Storm should look more like the Seattle Storm and get a double-digit victory.
