LA Sparks vs Connecticut Sun 9/17/20 - WNBA Picks & Predictions

The Sun made it to this point by beating up on the Sky in the opening game. The Sky were the team that had been playing quite  bit better, but the Sun were the team that wanted it quite a bit more by dominating the Sky. The Sun in the opening round of the playoffs ended up scoring a total of 94 points and only allowed the Sky to reply with 81 points.

DeWanna Bonner was the leading scorer for the Sun. Bonner ended up getting 33.3 minutes per game on averge, but shot at a decent 42.2% from the floor for a total of 19.7 points a game. Alyssa Thomas ended up getting 4.8 assist per game with 15.5 points  game, but only turned the ball 2.5 times per game on average. Thomas not only was able to pass the ball around nice, but also handles the rebounding nicely for the Sun with 9 boards per game.   

The Sparks managed to get the bye in the opening elimination game and now will be facing the TEAM name. That could really help the Sparks out who are definitely one of the better teams in the WNBA this year and finished the season at a 15-7 mark on the year.

Candace Parker was the leader for the Sparks when it came to the scoring front. Parker averaged 30 minutes a game, while shooting 51% from the floor and that converted to 14.7 points a game. The passing leader for the Sparks was Chelsea Gray with 5.3 assist per game, 14.1 points a game, and only 2.8 turnovers per game. When it came to cleaning up the missed shots the Sparks were able to get 9.7 boards per game from Parker.

The Sun have quite a few big names on the roster for the team to fail. The Sparks have done decent on the year and have a good record, but in playoff time it is quite a bit of pressure on the team and Los Angeles is not used to the pressure, which will lead to the Sparks having issues in this game. Look for the Sun to come into the game here and play quite a bit better here and handle the clutch plays better. Final Score Prediction, Connecticut Sun win 85-80.
