LA Sparks vs Atlanta Dream: Key matchups

Rhyne Howard vs Kia Nurse

Howard and Nurse were the two best performers for their respective teams in the first game between the two teams. While Nurse has cooled down a bit and averaged 9.6 points and 1.8 assists on the season, Howard has continued to flourish with averages of 16.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 steals.

Cameron Brink vs Cheyenne Parker-Tyus

The No. 2 pick in this year’s WNBA draft hasn’t gotten off to the best possible start. After a lackluster performance against the Minnesota Lynx where she failed to score any points, Brink should be up for a better game Sunday. The task of guarding Brink will fall on Cheyenne Parker-Tyus. The Atlanta forward averaged 11.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 0.9 steals in 11 games so far.
