The Sun just cannot stop winning.
Connecticut has won each of its last six games, and is trying to stretch its run to seven when it hosts the Atlanta Dream on Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.
With their strong start, the Sun have built a little bit of a cushion in the Eastern Conference standings, leading by two games over the Chicago Sky. A win against a lowly Dream side will help them create a little bit more much-needed separation.
This will be the second meeting between these two teams this season, the Sun beat the Dream 65-59 on June 9th at McCamish Pavilion.
Players to watch
Sun forward Jonquel Jones has earned WNBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors each of the last three weeks. She’s averaging 17.2 points, 12.0 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game this season.
