Wings vs Sun Game 2 Info
2022 WNBA Playoffs — Round 1 Game 2 (CONN Leads 1-0)
Dallas Wings (18-18, 10-8 Away) vs. Connecticut Sun (25-11, 13-5 Home)
Date: Sunday, Aug. 21, 2021
Time: 12 p.m. ET
Venue: Mohegan Sun Arena — Uncasville, CT
The Connecticut Sun are the higher seed here and made sure that the Dallas Wings realized that with a dominant 93-68 victory in Game 1. The Sun outscored the Wings in all four quarters, helped by Alyssa Thomas pacing the game in both rebounds (10) and assists (7) on top of her 15 points.
The Wings' loss was due to multiple reasons, including the fact that they only shot 25% from the three-point line while also committing 17 turnovers. That sort of sloppy play won't help them win a WNBA Championship, so they must prove that they can be better on Sunday.

Wings vs Sun Prediction & Pick
All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.
Prediction: Connecticut Sun win (87%)
FiveThirtyEight strongly leans towards the Sun here. It's hard to disagree with that mindset after Connecticut's dominant performance on Thursday. The Sun outplayed the Wings in just about every facet of the game, even managing to steal the ball 10 times.
While the Wings beat the Sun twice in the regular season, Connecticut is on another level after going 12-3 in their last 15 outings. Regardless of what happened earlier this year, the Sun look like the better team now and going up 2-0 seems like the most likely scenario.
Final Score Prediction: Sun: 89 | Wings: 76
