Dallas- The Dallas Wings look to impose their will on the Indiana Fever on Friday, but they have to stay committed with playing their game and not try to force the issue if they get down early in the game.
The Wings are trying to find themselves early in the season. They are off to an 0-2 start and it looks like the players are out of sync, as well as not playing to the level that fans are accustom of seeing.
Rookies Arike Ogunbowale and Brooke McCarty Williams had quite the WNBA debut and continue to be solid producers for the Wings. Ogunbowale has been the only starter to eclipse double-digit scoring figures in the Wings two games and she is the second highest scoring rookie in the league. McCarty-Williams is the League’s fourth-leading rookie scorer. Her 10 assists through two games are also the second most of any rookie. If they have any chance of beating the Fever, these key players needed to be asserted in the offense early, so that they could get a rhythm flowing.
Losing their key star Liz Cambage to trade with the Las Vegas Aces, they had some trouble with getting second-chance opportunities, as well as a big presence on the floor. However, with their youthful players, they can make the adjustments with outplaying the Fever with a small line-up. On paper, the Wings have a lot of fire power that can knock down threes in the open court. 28.1 The Wings from three-point land are fourth best in the league while its 22.5 attempts per game are the third most. Allisha Gray (66.7), Brooke McCarty-Williams (50.0) and Glory Johnson (50.0) all rank in the top-10 for three-point percentage during this young season.
If the Wings can box out the Fever, be aggressive, and hit key shots down the stretch, they may have a chance to get their first victory of the season.
