Dallas Wings doesn’t manage to deliver some remarkable performances during the games. Dallas managed to clinch six victories in the first 11 games that assured their playoff spot. However, things made a quick turnaround when they won only 3 matches in their next 10 outings. They have found themselves back in the drawing-room after losing to Sparks on Saturday for the third straight time.
The Connecticut Sun are allowed to stand comfortably because of the gap they have created in the Eastern Conference’s points standings. But if they want to unseat the champions, who have been in dominant form, they still have a lot of work to do. While they have a winning percentage of 66.7 percent, the Giants are favored due to their 6-4 road record. The Sun barely prevailed in a hard-fought contest that required overtime to decide the winner.
Head to head:
Both teams have played 39 head-to-head matches so far. Connecticut Sun was stronger in 29 matches: however, Dallas Wings only managed to win 10 matches. The match is going to be stressful as both sides are all set to display a challenging game.
Players to watch:
Isabelle has dominated the opponent every time with at least ten points per game with an impressive field goal percentage of 43.8.
Arike Ogunbowale put on a valiant performance despite a loss, scoring 23 points, and pulling down a rebound against the Sparks. Allisha Gray, the point guard, has contributed to the team with 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks, but she still needs to work on her attacking skills.
Courtney Williams, being a shooting guard has averaged 12.5 points in each game and has to dominate in the upcoming game to surprise the opponent.
It goes without saying that Sun, despite being the visiting team, holds all the cards coming into this match. The matchup between the Wings and Sun means a squad that is trying to climb out of trouble against a group that has thrived this season by playing an attacking style of basketball. The visitors have higher chances of clinching the victory than the Wings, who still have work to do.
The matchup is scheduled on 6th July at 5:00 sharp.
