The Seattle Storm on the season is averaging 89.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 82 points per game. Breanna Stewart has been the best player for Seattle averaging 21.2 points while shooting 44.1 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from behind the three-point line. Jewell Lloyd has also been really good this season averaging 20.4 points while shooting 48.5 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Connecticut Sun who sit with an 8-2 record overall which puts them in 1st place inside the Eastern Conference. The Sun have won two games in a row including the last game over the New York Liberty by 21 points. Connecticut is averaging 81.4 points while their defense is giving up 72.5 points per game. One big problem for the Sun in this game is they will be without Jonquel Jones who is averaging 21.6 points and shooting 56.7 percent from the field. The best player the Sun will have is DeWanna Bonner who is averaging 16.6 points while shooting 39.7 percent from the field.
Not having Jones for the Sun is going to be a big issue, and Seattle is going to take advantage. Connecticut’s offense is going to struggle to score and Seattle is going to come away with the cover of the spread.
