The Connecticut Sun and Dallas Wings meet Thursday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Connecticut Sun are getting desperate for a win after a brutal 0-5 WNBA start. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 75.4 points on 38.9 percent shooting and allowing 83.4 points on 45 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 23 points and 3.8 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15.2 points and 11.4 rebounds. Brionna Jones is the third double-digit scorer and Jasmine Thomas is dishing 3.4 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 28.7 percent from beyond the arc and 69.4 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.8 rebounds per game.
The Dallas Wings look for a feel good win here to get back to a .500 record. The Dallas Wings are averaging 82.6 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 83.8 points on 44.4 percent shooting.

The Sun are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Wings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 4-0 in Sun last 4 Thursday games. The under is 5-2 in Wings last 7 overall. The Sun are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Dallas.
The Connecticut Sun have been the most disappointing team in the league up to this point and that offense isn't doing anybody favors. However, the Sun are better than what they've shown up to this point and it's only a matter of time before they get their act together. The Dallas Wings have struggles of their own. In a battle between two struggling teams, I expect the Sun to figure things out first.
