Minnesota is 9-1 O/U. Sacramento is 1-8 straight up, but 5-4 O/U because they concede the worst field goal percentage in the league.
Minnesota has won three in a row behind Candice Wiggins’ emergence as the team’s big scorer since losing Seimone Augustus. Wiggins has 75 points in three games.
In five losses, Sacramento gave up 17 to Jia Perkins (17.3 ppg), 18 to Shavonte Zellous (12.3 ppg), 26 to Becky Hammon (19.8 ppg), 12 to Vanessa Hayden (6.8 ppg), 30 to Seimone Augustus (21.0 ppg).
Monarchs coach Jenny Boucek sounds like someone on a hot seat. For the first five games, she said she didn’t have a full roster. For the last four games, the excuse has been they’re still learning to play with each other. Sacramento is last in field goal shooting, and last in shooting allowed. Last in assists, 11th in assists allowed. They allow a points differential of -6.78; San Antonio is 12th at -3.57.
