Dallas Wings/WNBA

There are two WNBA games on Wednesday evening. Let’s get to them.

Connecticut Sun (8-6) vs. Indiana Fever (1-13)

When: Wednesday June 27 at 7 p.m. EST

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | NBC Sports Boston (New England area)

Injury report: For the Sun, Alyssa Thomas (shoulder) is doubtful while Shenise Johnson (knee) is out for the Fever.

Storylines to follow

The Sun hope to get a second win against Indiana in three games - Connecticut has slumped considerably in their last six games. In fact, they lost four in a row before defeating Indiana 87-78 last Sunday. Tonight, the Sun hope to get a bad taste out of their mouths after suffering a 92-80 road loss to the Mystics on Tuesday night.

Indiana hopes to take advantage of Connecticut’s back to back - The Fever haven’t played since last Sunday’s loss to the Sun, so it will be fresh on their minds. Though this is a road game, the Fever have been quite competitive in most of their games this season. For a roster that is clearly rebuilding, that’s a bright spot.

Las Vegas Aces (5-10) vs. Dallas Wings (6-7)

When: Wednesday June 27 at 10 p.m. EST

Where: Mandalay Bay Center | TICKETS

How to watch: NBA TV (national TV) | AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain (Las Vegas area TV)

Injury report: For the Aces, Moriah Jefferson (knee) is questionable. For the Wings, Karima Christmas-Kelly (knee) and Theresa Plaisance (knee) are out.

Storylines to follow

Vegas looks to avenge on June 15 loss - This is the second meeting between the two Western Conference teams. On June 15, Dallas won at home, 77-67 but Vegas has the talent to even the series.

Dallas looks to gain consistency - The Wings have more talent than they have had in quite some time. Yet they are still around .500 toward the midpoint of the 2018 season and have lost three of their last four games. Two of the next three games on the Dallas schedule look much more winnable, facing off against the Fever and the Sky. But winning this game and their next contest against the Lynx would make the Wings feel much more confident about their playoff security.

Big battle of the posts - A’ja Wilson will face off against Liz Cambage in a match between two of the WNBA’s top five corers.
