Connecticut Sun vs. Atlanta Dream Preview (tip-off 11:00 a.m. EST)
Coming off of four straight losses, the Connecticut Sun are looking to bounce back. Sitting at second in the Eastern Conference behind the Washington Mystics, the Sun need to find a way to win. With starters Jonquel Jones and Courtney Williams going through a slump, the Sun are looking for all their players to show up and help them get a win.
The Atlanta Dream are coming off an impressive two point loss over the Phoenix Mercury and are looking to continue to take steps in the right direction. With a 3-10 record and sitting last in the Eastern Conference losing to the Mercury by only two was a suprise to many. With guard Brittany Skyes coming off an impressive 29 point performance, the Dream will look to Skyes to continue to perform well and help them secure a win.

Phoenix Mercury vs. Washington Mystics Preview (tip-off 11:30 p.m. EST)
The Phoenix Mercury are coming off a close win over the Atlanta Dream. The Mercury are second to last in the Western Conference standings and are 6-6. The Mercury are led by Britney Griner, who averages 19 points and is over 50 percent from the field. DeWanna Bonner adds 18 points and 7 rebounds for the Mercury. This is the first matchup between the Mercury and the Mystics.
The Washington Mystics recently lost against the Los Angeles Sparks and are looking to stay in first in the league with a win against the Mercury. The Mystics are led by All-Star forward Elena Delle Donne, who averages 15 points and 8 rebounds a game. Even though Delle Donne is the leading scorer for the Mystics, she is questionable for the game due to a nose fracture. Emma Meesseman adds 13 points and four rebounds for the Mystics and can fill in the gap for the injured Delle Donne.
