The Seattle Storm look to stay hot while building on their seven-game winning streak.

Breanna Stewart is averaging 18.9 points and 7.8 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 13.9 points and 2.6 rebounds.

The Connecticut Sun look for a statement win after winning four of their last five games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 80.1 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 80.7 points on 45.1 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 18.7 points and 3.3 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15.5 points and 9.7 rebounds.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Seattle Storm already beat the Connecticut Sun by 13 points in the bubble, a game in which they covered the 10 point spread, shot 48 percent from the field and 52 percent from deep. The Storm are the hottest team in the league by far and are covering while they're piling up these outright victories. The Connecticut Sun just can't find any consistency and a lot of that comes down to an offense that's ranked ninth in points per game and field goal percentage, while the three point percentage is good for 10th in the league. Right now it's Bonner and everybody else.
I'm not trying to step in front of the Storm right now. I'll lay whatever the chalk ends up being in this Sunday afternoon game.
