Seattle Storm vs Los Angeles Sparks Prediction: Storm to Win

Seattle Storm vs Los Angeles Sparks Prediction: The Seattle Storm will start as favorites to win their upcoming game against the Los Angeles Sparks as per the latest predictions.

The mid-season fixtures are always important for teams to move ahead in the playoffs race. The Seattle Storm will aim for their third straight win when they take on the Los Angeles Sparks in their upcoming WNBA game tonight. The Storm is in a good position in the Western Conference and a win in the next game will move them closer to the Aces. Seattle is coming off a thumping victory against the Mystics in the last fixture.

With the win, Sue Bird has now tied the record for the most number of victories in a career. Bird has already announced that she would be retiring by the end of this season. Jewell Lloyd and Ezi Magbegor were the top performers in the last game as they added 42 points and 8 rebounds together. Breanna Stewart too continued her good form and secured 19 points with 9 rebounds and 7 assists.

The Los Angeles Sparks do not have much margin of error in the upcoming games if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The embarrassing defeat by a margin of 23 points in the last game against the Sky has put them into a very difficult position. They have no option but to bounce back against the might Storm at the Climate Pledge Arena tonight.

Nneka Ogwumike and Brittney Sykes were the only two double-digit scorers out of the 9 players who played the last game for Los Angeles. It will be a challenging night once again today against the Storm.
