DeWanna Bonner is averaging 17.7 points and 3.3 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15 points and 8.9 rebounds.

The Connecticut Sun are shooting 30.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.5 rebounds per game.

Aerial Powers is averaging 16.3 points and 2.5 assists while Myisha Hines-Allen is averaging 16 points and 8.2 rebounds.

The Sun are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The Mystics are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The over is 4-0 in Mystics last 4 Sunday games. The Sun are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Washington and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Washington Mystics continue to pile up the losses and failed covers, and at this point they're automatic fade material. The Connecticut Sun have played their best basketball over the last couple of weeks and the offense is starting to come along. These teams are heading in completely different directions. I'll lay the chalk with the Sun.
