Wings vs Sun Prediction: Connecticut to dominate Dallas again?

Sun vs Wings Prediction: The Connecticut Sun will start as favorites to win the upcoming game against the Dallas Wings as per the latest prediction.

It has been an exciting start to the postseason with the top 8 teams battling hard to keep their title hopes alive. The Dallas Wings have a do-or-die clash ahead when they meet the Connecticut Sun in the second game of Round 1 of the playoffs today.

The Wings have a lot of things to correct after facing a one-sided defeat in the first game 2 days ago. Almost everything didn’t seem to work for Dallas as they lost the fixture by a margin of 25 points. Allisha Gray was the top performer for the Wings with 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. It will be another tough challenge for the Wings to avoid elimination by not losing today.

The Connecticut Sun started the playoffs with the same form as the regular season and gave no chance to the Wings in Game 1. It was a stellar performance from Jonquel Jones as she scored 19 points with 8 rebounds. Alyssa Thomas also played well and finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. The Sun will surely look to wrap up the first round by dominating the Wings at the Mohegan Sun Arena once again in the upcoming game.
