Phoenix Mercury VS Connecticut Sun  Livescore | Match Preview | Match Statistics
-------------------------------------------
The Connecticut Sun look to keep rolling after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 87.1 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 81.5 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 15.8 points and 12 rebounds while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 14.9 points and 4.7 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Courtney Williams is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.8 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won five of their last seven road games.
 
The Phoenix Mercury could use a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Phoenix Mercury are averaging 81.7 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 82.8 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Brittney Griner is averaging 21.2 points and 7.7 rebounds while Diana Taurasi is averaging 18.3 points and 2.7 assists. Leilani Mitchell is dishing 3.6 assists and Camille Little is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Phoenix Mercury are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Mercury are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.9 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Mercury have lost four of their last five home games.
 
The Sun are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Mercury are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The Sun are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Phoenix, 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings in Phoenix.
 
I know the Sun have been the better team by far this season and has covered a ton on the road dating back to last year. However, the home team has won the alst five meetings between the Sun and Mercury, and this is a must-win for Phoenix if it hopes to avoid the Sparks or Lynx in the first round of the playoffs. I look for the Mercury to step up big offensively and edge out a victory.
