Game Preview

The Washington Mystics (10-7, 6-5 Eastern Conference) will face off against the Connecticut Sun (13-5, 6-3 Eastern Conference) on Sunday at 3 p.m. EDT in Uncasville, Connecticut. The Mystics will be looking to put an end to their three-game road skid as they take on the Sun, who have been performing well this season.

 

Offense and Defense

Let's start by analyzing the offensive and defensive capabilities of both teams. The Connecticut Sun have displayed a strong performance against Eastern Conference teams, boasting a 6-3 record. They have also shown their ability to win close games, going 1-0 in one-possession games.

On the other side, the Washington Mystics have a 6-5 record in Eastern Conference action. Their offense has been averaging 80.5 points per game, ranking them fifth in the Eastern Conference. However, their shooting percentage stands at 41.9%, indicating room for improvement in their efficiency.

 

Key Players

Brionna Jones has been a standout player for the Connecticut Sun, averaging 15.9 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game. DeWanna Bonner has also been in impressive form, averaging 20.0 points over the last 10 games for the Sun.

For the Washington Mystics, Tianna Hawkins has contributed with an average of 5.7 points per game. However, keep an eye on Ariel Atkins, who has been performing well with an average of 15.0 points over the last 10 games for the Mystics.

 

Injury Updates

While the Connecticut Sun will be without Brionna Jones for the remainder of the season due to an Achilles injury, the Washington Mystics have an encouraging update. Elena Delle Donne, the best player on the team, has been upgraded to probable for this game and is likely to play. Her presence on the court will undoubtedly boost the Mystics' chances.

 

Prediction

Considering all the factors, including the Mystics' recent road skid and the Sun's strong performance this season, the game is expected to be closely contested. However, the Mystics have several factors working in their favor. Elena Delle Donne's probable return will significantly strengthen their offense and overall gameplay.

Furthermore, the +3 point spread indicates that the game is expected to be decided by a close margin. The Mystics have been losing by an average of only 3 points this season, making them well-equipped to cover the spread. With their key players stepping up and the potential return of Delle Donne, the Mystics have a strong chance of not only covering the spread but potentially securing an outright victory.

In conclusion, our prediction for the game between the Washington Mystics and the Connecticut Sun is that the Mystics will cover the +3 point spread. With the potential return of Elena Delle Donne and their ability to keep games close, the Mystics are well-positioned to perform strongly in this matchup.
