Dallas Wings have a 5-8 record so far this season and currently sit on the second to last place of the West and in the third to last of the whole league. In their last game they snapped a three game losing streak by winning on the road against the Washington Mystics with a 83-87 score, but they are still 2-4 in their last six. Skylar Diggins-Smith leads the team in scoring with 16.9 ppg, adding a team high 5.6 assists per game. She is followed by Glory Johnson with 13.4 ppg and a team high 8.8 rebounds per game, while Alisha Gray adds 12.5 ppg and 5.1 rpg.
San Antonio Stats have a league-worse record of 0-11 so far this season and are the only winless team of the WNBA so far. In their last game on Monday they lost on the road against the Seattle Storm with a 75-57 score. Kayla McBride leads the team in scoring with 15.2 ppg and 5 rpg, followed by Isabelle Harrison with 11.1 ppg and 4.8 rpg, while Monique Currie adds 11.5 ppg and 4.8 rpg.
In their previous matchup earlier this season, Dallas won on the road with a 94-82 score. Dallas have a 2-4 home record so far this season, while San Antonio are 0-6 on the road. San Antonio are the worst offensive team with 72.2 ppg to Dallas’ 84.8, while Dallas are the worst defensive team, allowing 88.2 ppg to San Antonio’s 81.9. Dallas have better percentages both in field goals, with 42% to San Antonio’s second-worse of 40.3%, and in 3-pointers with 29.8% to San Antonio’s second-worse of 29.6%. San Antonio are only slightly better in rebounding, grabbing 34 to Dallas’ 33.5. Even with a negative home record, Dallas can overcome San Antonio’s resistance quite easily today by more than 7 points.
