The Connecticut Sun have kind of fallen apart over these last two weeks, as they've lost four straight and are losing their last five games by an average of 11 points while shooting just 40 percent from the field. The problem is the Atlanta Dream haven't been much better at all this season and are losing at home by an average of nine points while shooting 35.8 percent from the field. If there was a game for the Sun to bounce back, it's probably here.
