No team has been hotter for longer this season than the Connecticut Sun. They are are a team that has played together better than anyone else so far, gets everyone involved, moves the ball as well as they score and has fun doing it. The team has now gone an entire month without losing, putting together an eight-game winning streak since their Opening Day loss.

The Sun have a potential All-Star at every position this season, but one of the primary reasons for their success this season is offensive catalyst and second year point guard Lindsay Whalen.

In a 20-point road win against the Sparks on Monday, Whalen had 16 points, six assists and a team-high seven rebounds. Just one game earlier, Whalen recorded a career-high nine rebounds in Saturday's 73-63 win over the Shock. She also scored 10 points on 8-8 from the free throw line and had another six assists.

Whalen currently ranks second in the WNBA with 6.1 assists per game as well as second with total assists (55) despite playing fewer games than most other teams.
