Seattle Storm: An Overview
Led by Jewell Loyd, who's averaging 24.3 points per game, the Storm exhibits a potent threat from beyond the arc, with a commendable 35.2% shooting accuracy. Their 3-pointer game, with an average of 8.9 makes per match, ranks third in the league.
Their defense, however, has been a concern with opponents averaging 82.3 points per game in the last 10 matches. This area needs bolstering if they hope to balance the scales against the Wings.
Luckily for the Storm, there are no reported injuries which gives them full squad availability and greater rotation flexibility.
Dallas Wings: An Overview
Arike Ogunbowale leads the Wings’ offense, averaging 21.6 points and 4.6 assists per game. The team’s performance has been impressive, averaging 89.5 points and 22.6 assists over their last 10 games, significantly higher than the Storm's.
Defensively, the Wings have done well, keeping their opponents to an average of 80.8 points in the last 10 matches. However, with the Storm's strong 3-point game, the Wings' perimeter defense will be tested.
Unfortunately, the Wings will miss Lou Lopez Senechal and Diamond DeShields due to knee injuries, potentially hampering their on-court dynamics.
Given their previous record against the Wings and considering their strong 3-point game, we predict the Storm will cover the +6 points spread in this game. Despite their lower standing, the Storm have proved capable of challenging stronger opponents, only losing to the Wings by 4 points in their previous encounter. With the absence of key players for the Wings due to injuries, and the full squad availability for the Storm, this matchup looks promising for Seattle.
