Sun vs Wings Game 3 Info

2022 WNBA Playoffs — Round 1 Game 3 (Series Tied 1-1)
Connecticut Sun (25-11, 12-6 Away) vs. Dallas Wings (18-18, 8-10 Home)
Date: Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2021
Time: 9 p.m. ET
Venue: College Park Center — Arlington, TX
Coverage: ESPN

After being embarrassed in Game 1, the Dallas Wings stormed back with an impressive 89-79 victory over the Connecticut Sun in Game 2. The Wings' win was quite the effort, highlighted by Kayla Thornton's team-high 20 points, as well as Teaira McCowan's 17-point, 11-rebound double-double off the bench.

Meanwhile, the Sun came away as losers due to a slow start, getting outscored 22-7 in the first quarter. Outside of Jonquel Jones and Brionna Jones each scoring 20 points apiece, there wasn't much to like from Connecticut's performance. A stronger showing is needed on the road this Wednesday.

Sun vs Wings Prediction & Pick

All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.
Prediction: Connecticut Sun win (56%)

FiveThirtyEight projects the Sun to bounce back with a Game 3 victory here. While Sunday's effort was hardly impressive, Connecticut did outscore Dallas, 72-67 in the final three frames. In fact, the Sun's 32-point fourth-quarter performance is exactly what they need right out of the gate on Wednesday.

I think that the Sun underestimated the Wings in Game 2 and that's something that won't happen again. If Connecticut can shoot better from three-point range and take advantage of their opponent's discipline issues (Wings had 20 fouls on Sunday), the Sun's chances of victory will increase.

As great as the Wings are feeling after their upset win, I expect the Sun to put them in their place.

Final Score Prediction: Sun: 88 | Wings: 79
