The Las Vegas Aces and Indiana Fever face off on Saturday in a WNBA basketball showdown at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. These two teams faced off twice earlier this season and it was the Aces that were able to win each of the two games.
The Las Vegas Aces come into this game with an 18-7 record overall which puts them in 1st place in the Western Conference. The Las Vegas Aces have found a lot of success this season and they are coming off a victory in their last game against the Atlanta Dream. The offense was strong in the last game scoring 78 points and that led to the victory. The Las Vegas Aces on the season are averaging 88.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 80.4 points per game. A’Ja Wilson has been the best player for Las Vegas averaging 18.8 points while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 89.6 percent from the free throw line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Indiana Fever who sit with a 5-18 record overall which gives them the worst record in the WNBA. The Fever have had plenty of issues this season, but they are coming off a victory in their last game. Against the Dallas Wings the offense was able to score 83 points and that led to the two-point victory. For most of the season the Fever’s offense has been an issue. On the season the Indiana Fever are averaging 75.2 points per game while their defense is giving up 84.3 points per game. Kelsey Mitchell has been the best player for the Fever averaging 16.3 points while shooting 40.5 percent from the field and 32 percent from deep.
I think the Fever’s offense is going to be strong again in this game, and that is going to lead to this game being high scoring. The Fever’s offense at times has struggled but they have scored at least 80 points in each of the last two games. The Fever’s defense hasn’t been good, and the Aces will have no issue keeping the pace high. Look for this game to be a shootout and for the over to cash.
