Sun vs Wings Prediction: Can Dallas register a historic win by crushing Connecticut?

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

It’s now or never for the Connecticut Sun and the Dallas Wings as they are set to face off for the decider game of the first round of the playoffs tonight. The Sun has made the path challenging for themselves after losing at home in Game 2. Very few expected them to get dominated after comfortably winning the first matchup.

It was a disappointing night for most of the starters except Jonquel Jones. Jones secured 20 points with 9 rebounds. The late surge from Brionna Jones with 20 points and 4 rebounds reduced the gap between the two sides but victory was out of reach for Connecticut. The Sun will aim to bring back its ruthless form for the all-important game tonight.

The Dallas Wings have made the first round very interesting by their dominating performance in Game 2 and forcing the decider in their home arena of the College Park Center. Kayla Thornton and Allisha Gray turned out to be the star performers as they added 35 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds together. Teaira McCowan also played well and finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds. The Wings will look to repeat the same performance against the Sun and qualify for the next round with a historic win.
