    WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    A mouth-watering prospect

    There are a ton of interesting match-ups here but perhaps none is more lucrative than the Power Forward battle between A’ja Wilson and Breanna Stewart. Both are 20+ points scorers, elite rebounders, and incredible defenders. But describing this match-up alone doesn’t do justice. Consider this, the backcourt match-up between Storm’s Loyd and Bird versus Aces’ Plum and Gray is no less exciting.

    While Jackie Young gives the Aces another all-around scoring option, Gabby Williams provides hustle and defense that was crucial during the match-up versus the Mystics. Gabby is questionable for the game and her absence can hurt the Storm against a fast-paced Aces.In terms of the bench, both teams appear thin but there is no doubt that the Storm has the edge there with Talbot and Magbebor being impressive against Washington. The Aces seem loaded but the experience of the Storm will not easy to deal with.

    Highest rebounder: A’ja Wilson: 12
    Top assists maker: Sue Bird: 8
    Score Prediction: Aces: 80    Storm: 75
