This week we are once again about to see some action from the WNBA in the United States.On Wednesday Connecticut Sun is hosting Los Angeles Sparks. At this moment Connecticut Sun are third in the Eastern Conference, having a perfectly balanced record of 6 wins and 6 losses. In their last game they lost against Dallas Wings, but before that, they were enjoying a solid run of four consecutive wins.Before losing to Dallas Wings, Connecticut Sun enjoyed consecutive wins against New York Liberty (twice), Minnesota Lynx and Atlanta Dream.Meanwhile Los Angeles Sparks are second in the Western Conference. Their record is much better than Connecticut Sun’s. They have won nine of their twelve games so far and they have lost just three. Right now they are also enjoying a great run of five consecutive wins in the WNBA, which proves that they are one of the best teams in the league at this moment. And one of the strongest contenders for the championship.Right now LA Sparks are enjoying consecutive wins against Indiana Fever, Phoenix Mercury (twice), San Antonio Stars and Dallas Wings.Meanwhile Chicago Sky hosts Indiana Fever at home.Chicago Sky is currently on the last 6th place in the Eastern Conference. They have lost three of their last five games – by Washington Mystics, Indiana Fever, and Phoenix Mercury, but managed to snatch a win against San Antonio Stars and Atlanta Dream.There’s just one team with worst stats than Chicago Sky in the WNBA this season – San Antonio Stars. Chicago Sky won just three of their 13 games in the league so far and lost 10 of them. With this type of performance, we could hardly think that they could qualify for the WNBA playoffs. This could happen only if they find a way of suddenly improving their performance.
