The next WNBA game between the Atlanta Dream and the Connecticut Sun will be played at the Dream’s home venue, the Gateway Center, on Friday, 15 July. This season has been all over the place for the Dream. They are presently the #6 and if they don’t do well in the coming games, their position can further slip.
Atlanta lost badly to Chicago in their most recent match. Among the players that looked good were Cheyenne Parker and Tiffany Hayes. Parker collected 6 rebounds and scored 14 points. Hayes contributed an additional 12 points and 8 rebounds. To avoid losing at home, The Dream must put in a concerted team effort.
After defeating the Fever in their most recent match, the Connecticut Sun has picked up their game. Jonquel Jones had another outstanding performance, leading her team with 20 points and 14 rebounds. Moreover, with 19 points and 5 rebounds, DeWanna Bonner also displayed strong play. Connecticut needs to work on their shooting, too, as they only made 46.3 percent of their field goals against the bottom-ranked team on the list. Their prospects of reclaiming the top spot in the Eastern Conference from the Sky will increase if they win on Friday.
This season, the Atlanta Dream has struggled to deliver consistently high performance. They presently hold the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference with a record of 10-13. Atlanta has won two of the previous five games. They’ve kept up a 6-6 home record so far. The Dream will host the Connecticut Sun after losing to the Chicago Sky by a score of 75–90 in the previous match.
The season so far has been encouraging for the Connecticut Sun. They are currently in second place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 15-8. Connecticut has won three of its past five games. As of right now, they have a 7-5 record when playing away. The Sun defeated the Indiana Fever in their most recent match by a score of 89-81, and they will now face the Atlanta Dream.
Head to Heads:
These two teams have faced off 40 times in the WNBA so far. However, with 21 victories, the Dream leads the Sun, who prevailed in 19 of them. If we talk about the last five meetings, Atlanta has no chance because Connecticut won each one. On June 26, 2022, the most recent match of the current campaign took place. By a score of 72-61, the Connecticut Sun prevailed in that contest.
To get their season back on track, the Atlanta Dream must win this game urgently. They are now in trouble after two straight defeats. It will undoubtedly be difficult to overcome the powerful Sun. Connecticut won’t want to lose another game and squander their momentum. They have overpowered the hosts in recent games, and they intend to do so again on Friday. The Sun is expected to win this match, according to most predictions and betting sites.
