WNBA Preview: Connecticut Sun (4-1) at Minnesota Lynx (0-5)

Subsequent to watching the Minnesota Lynx allow 90, 94 and 94 points, separately, in their last three games, things need to change for the team.

That is reflected in Minnesota’s WNBA-worst record of 0-5, and they will probably finish 0-6 unless they tighten up against the Connecticut Sun, one of the best WNBA teams, on Thursday night in Minneapolis.

After overcoming an early 22-8 deficit and scoring 52 first-half points, the Lynx suffered a 94-89 defeat in Dallas on Tuesday night. Minnesota shot better from the field, but it hurt itself by making 15 mistakes and only forcing 9 of them.

Some good individual performances, like Jessica Shepard’s excellent effort and Kayla McBride’s team-high 18 points, were wasted. She played the full 40 minutes, scoring 15 focuses, getting 10 bounce back and doling out five helps.

While the Lynx continue losing, Connecticut (4-1) continues to win. Tuesday night’s 81-78 triumph over Indiana permitted it to return from its most memorable loss of the time in New York on Saturday. The Sun defeated the Indiana Fever with a 45-37 rebounding advantage and four players in double figures, despite shooting 40.3% from the field.

For Connecticut, Tiffany Hayes had a game-high 22 points and a pair of double-doubles. Alyssa Thomas dominated the stat sheet with 13 points, 17 rebounds, and seven assists, while Brionna Jones added 19 points and 11 rebounds.

After the Sun’s loss in New York, where they had only 13 assists on 22 made buckets, their ball movement improved significantly. They scored 29 field goals against Indiana and had 22 assists.

Over the past two years, this series has been one-sided. The Sun have defeated the Lynx five times in a row, including the season finale.
