On Thursday night, just one WNBA game arrives from the schedule as the Los Angeles Sparks host the Connecticut Sun. This latest battle features the league's hottest Winning Streak as the Sun have now won their last five games in a row. It also features an undefeated home team, the Los Angeles Sparks, who are among the top two teams in the league right now. Here's the latest WNBA game preview including matchup odds, as well as how to watch the Sun vs. Sparks live streaming online or on television Thursday evening.

Game preview

The Connecticut Sun played just last night and was able to defeat the Seattle Storm in a close battle, 83-79.

The Sun team currently features two of the Eastern Conference starters for the upcoming WNBA All-Star Game in Jonquel Jones and Jasmine Thomas. Jones recorded a double-double in Wednesday night's fifth-straight win by the Sun, which has them on top of the Eastern Conference standings. Other wins during their latest streak have included a 96-92 victory over Elena Delle Donne and the Mystics, as well as a 91-85 win over the Indiana Fever.

The Los Angeles Sparks are, of course, the reigning WNBA Champions. Led by the reigning WNBA MVP Nneka Ogwumike, the team has gone a perfect 7-0 on their home court so far this season. They're also 8-2 over their last 10 games, and trailing the best team in the league, the Minnesota Lynx, by two games. Of the players, Candace Parker was recently named as the only Western Conference starter, although Ogwumike is likely to be voted onto the reserves.
