Dallas Wings vs Las Vegas Aces: Recent Form
The Dallas Wings have done enough to make it to the postseason but a couple of victories from here will be a big boost to their confidence. They are positioned well in the table with a win percentage of 46.7 and a peculiar positive record on the road. On the flip side, their home record has taken a blow with just 5 victories in 14 games. Victories against Sky and Dream in the last two appearances have given them the much-needed momentum to go big against Aces.
The Las Vegas Aces have been in a league of their own, given their sheer dominance and current form. Despite suffering a shock defeat against Mystics by an 83-73 margin, they have a winning percentage of 71 and are far ahead in the race with an exceptional away record of 12-4. In the last five appearances, they achieved four triumphs on a trot against Sparks, Sky, Fever, and Lynx but surprisingly bowed down against Mystics.
