The Connecticut Sun and Chicago Sky face off on Tuesday in Game 4 of their WNBA playoff series at Mohegan Sun Arena. The Sky currently has the 2-1 series lead and will move onto the WNBA Finals with a win in this game.
On Sunday, it was the Sky that were able to secure the 76-72 victory. At the end of the first period, they were down by three, but they fought their way back and twee able to win by four points. The Sky used a balanced attack with four different players putting up at least 12 points. The Sky were led by Candance Parker, who finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds. The Sun were led by DeWanna Bonner, who finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Jonquel Jones only finished with six points, and they need her to be better here.
The Sky are averaging 86.3 points, while their defense is giving up 81.3 points per game. The offense is ranked second in the league, while their defense is ranked 4th in the league. The Sky also plays the 5th fastest pace in the league. Kahleah Copper has been the top player for the Sky, averaging 15.7 points while shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from behind the three-point line.
The Sun are averaging 85.8 points, while their defense is giving up 77.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in the league, while their defense is ranked second. In this game, the defense is going to need to step up. The top offensive player has been Jonquel Jones, and she is averaging 14.6 points while shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 36.9 percent from behind the three-point line. Brionna Jones is also averaging 13.8 points while shooting 57.1 percent from the field.
Neither team reached over 76 points in the last game, and that is going to be the case again in this game. These are both good defensive teams, and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. It wouldn’t shock me if neither team scored 70 points here, and this game is going to go under the total. Back the under to cash.
