The Las Vegas Aces and Atlanta Dream meet Saturday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Las Vegas Aces look to stay hot after winning 12 of their last 14 games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 87.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 79 points on 42.9 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 20.3 points and 8.7 rebounds while Angel McCoughtry is averaging 14.7 points and 5.2 rebounds. Dearica Hamby is the third double-digit scorer and Kayla McBride is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81.5 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 30.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.6 rebounds per game.
The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 80.1 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 90.3 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Chennedy Carter is averaging 16.5 points and 2.3 rebounds while Betnijah Laney is averaging 16.4 points and 4.4 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.
The Aces are 17-7 ATS in the last 24 meetings. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Atlanta and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
When the Las Vegas Aces and Dream met back in late July, the Aces won by 30 points while shooting 54 percent from the field and 67 percent from deep. We can't expect a similar performance this time around, but there's no doubt the Aces are the better and hotter team, and the Dream continue to come up short straight up and against the spread. The Atlanta Dream just nearly lost to the Liberty due to a lack of scoring, and now they're going up against one of the top offenses in the league. This isn't a good spot to be in.
The Aces should roll here.
