Jonquel Jones has been the best player for the Sun averaging 19.9 points while shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from behind the three-point line.

This Sparks team is finally getting healthy and that is good news because injuries have really hurt this team.

The Sun are the better team and the Sparks are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for Connecticut to find a way to win this game big. The Sun will come away with a win and a cover of the spread.
