The Connecticut Sun got their 2020 season off to a funky start, to say the least.
After going 0-5 to start the season, the Sun won the five of their next seven games to improve to 5-7. And despite not having Jonquel Jones at center this season, Connecticut has managed to do some impressive stuff in the first 12 games.
Here’s more from her analysis:
At this point in the season, we?ve seen two versions of the Sun: the team that played the first quarter of the regular season and went 0-5, and the one that played the second quarter of the season and went 5-2. The improvements in the second part of this season can be traced to a few areas ? a more consistent offense that turns the ball over less (they?ve accounted for three fewer turnovers per game during their 5-2 stretch). So, it seems a playoff spot will be determined on which version of the Sun show up. If the team that went 5-2 shows up, it can make up the ground it lost with its 0-5 start. But if the early-season Sun show up, it?s going to be a long offseason for Connecticut as they wait for 2019 All-Star center Jonquel Jones to return.
The Sun have 10 more games left on their schedule before the postseason begins in mid-September. And hopefully, the second half of their season goes smoother than the first.
