Stephen Nover's WNBA Game of the Week
(WNBA) Indiana vs. Connecticut, 05/20/2022 7:00 PM, Score: 85 - 94
Point Spread: 14.00 | -105.00 Indiana (Away)
Result: Win
Until getting buried, 101-79, by the Dream this past Tuesday, Indiana had not lost a game by more than 14 points in any of its six games.

Fever coach Marianne Stanley ripped her team following that loss questioning the Fever's effort and intensity among other things.

So the Fever should be primed for a big effort here.

Connecticut is fat and happy off a 92-65 victory against New York this past Tuesday. The Sun forced 32 turnovers in that win.

Indiana turned the ball over only 12 times in its loss to the Dream. The Fever also held a rebound edge. Atlanta, though, was hot making 54 percent from the floor, including 10-of-22 3-pointers. It was a combination of poor defense by Indiana and excellent shooting by Atlanta.

The Fever are 9-3 ATS following a loss. The Sun has played just three games. Indiana has played twice as many games. The teams meet again Sunday in Indianapolis. So the Sun won't likely want to run up a score knowing there would be a rapid revenge factor. This could leave the backdoor open in case Connecticut does build up a big advantage.
