The Connecticut Sun are really good at home and are winning games despite not shooting their best from the field yet. With that said, the Washington Mystics are arguably the most explosive offensive team in the league and has been beating teams over the head since the return of Elena Delle Donne. This is going to be a high scoring game and you can argue the Mystics are the better team anyway. I'll take my free points.
