The Connecticut Sun hav a history of blowing teams out at home this season, but they've had issues defensively lately, allowing 82.4 points on 47 percent shooting in their last five games. The Minnesota Lynx may be hit or miss in terms of results, but they grind games out and compete, and all six of their losses have been decided by seven or less points. The Lynx went toe-to-toe with the Sun in the previous meeting last month. I'll take a shot with the points.
