Sparks vs Sun Prediction

The Los Angeles Sparks (4-10) face off against the Connecticut Sun (12-1) at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The Sparks are struggling, having lost three straight games, including a recent defeat to the Minnesota Lynx. Connecticut, on the other hand, rides a wave of success, with the latest win over the Dallas Wings extending a current winning streak to three games. Take the WNBA by storm with our WNBA picks.

The Sparks have had a tough season so far, particularly on the road with a 1-6 record away from home. The offense, averaging 77.6 points per game, is led by Dearica Hamby, who is scoring 19 points per game while shooting 51.8% from the field. However, Los Angeles' defense has been porous, allowing 84.0 points per game, and they struggle to keep opponents from scoring, which is evident from recent performances. 

The Sparks’ field goal percentage sits at 41.6%, and they pull down 34.3 rebounds per game, slightly higher than the Sun. The absence of Azura Stevens due to injury further complicates the Sparks’ defensive woes.

Connecticut has been dominant this season, especially at home with a 7-1 record. The Sun are not only second in the Eastern Conference but also boast one of the league’s best defenses, allowing just 70.8 points per game. The offense, averaging 81.1 points per game, is led by DeWanna Bonner, who averages 17.6 points and shoots 44.0% from the field. 

The Sun excel in team play, with 19.6 assists per game, and the defensive strength is highlighted by the ability to limit opponents to 42.1% shooting. Despite a slight injury concern with Moriah Jefferson, the Sun's depth and consistency make them a formidable opponent.
