Washington Mystics vs Connecticut Sun. The WNBA pick for this game is the Washington Mystics.


The Indiana Fever showcased a commendable defensive performance in their season opener, emerging as the standout aspect of their team.


They effectively stifled the Connecticut Sun, limiting them to a meager 21 successful field goals out of 66 attempts, resulting in a dismal shooting percentage of just 31.8%.


Additionally, the Fever’s defense proved effective in guarding the three-point line, allowing the Sun to convert only 4 of their 17 attempts from beyond the arc.


However, replicating such an impressive defensive showing against the New York Liberty, a team boasting exceptional talent, will present a formidable challenge for the Fever.


In their season debut, the Washington Mystics demonstrated their defensive prowess by forcing 22 turnovers from the Liberty.


Despite the addition of superstar Breanna Stewart to their roster, the Liberty suffered a defeat at the hands of the Mystics on their home court.


This upcoming matchup between the Mystics and the Sun is intriguing, pitting the league’s top-ranked Sun defense against the second-ranked Mystics offense.


The Sun has been stingy, surrendering only 61 points per game, while the Washington offense has been potent, averaging 80 points per game.



Furthermore, the Mystics boast a significantly higher free-throw shooting percentage than the Sun.


On the other hand, the Sun committed 18 turnovers in their victory over the Fever and struggled with their shooting, posting a mere 31.8% field goal percentage.


As the Mystics remain undefeated this season, they are poised to secure their second win. My final score prediction is a victory for the Washington Mystics, who will also cover the spread, with a score of 74-68.
