With two games to play before taking a monthlong break for the Summer Olympics, the Connecticut Sun and the Dallas Wings square off in a Wednesday matinee with a few things in common. Niklas Hjalmarsson Blackhawks Jersey Authentic .They both struggled the past four games. They both had a chance at notching upset wins Sunday. They both lost, and both now must try to rebound and close out the first part of the season on a positive note.That next step comes at Wednesday at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.How the Wings respond coming off a crushing overtime loss to the Minnesota Lynx will say a lot about the mental toughness of the team. Dallas (9-14) fought back from a 13-point, fourth-quarter deficit only to lose 98-87 in overtime to the team with the second-best record in the WNBA.On Sunday against the New York Liberty, the Sun fell behind early, then scored 19 of 22 points in the second period to take a seven-point, third-quarter lead. Connecticut (6-16) led midway through the fourth until running out of steam and falling 83-76.Even though the Sun have lost three of four, they have shown signs of life. Before they were unable to close out the Liberty, they took a 16-point lead in the third quarter Friday against the Los Angeles Sparks, the team with the best WNBA mark, before succumbing.Alex Bentley continues to lead the Sun in scoring at 14 points a game. Three others of her teammates also are in double figures: Alyssa Thomas (11.1), Chiney Ogwumike (10.2) and Jasmine Thomas (10.0).The Wings have lost four straight. However, throw out a 37-point loss to the Lynx, and they dropped the other three games by a total of eight points.Dallas has plenty of firepower, as six players, led by Odyssey Sims (14.7), Karima Christmas (13.5) and Glory Johnson (13.2), are scoring in double figures.The Wings added some much needed experience on Monday when they signed guard Tiffany Bias and waived Brinna Kiesel.Tiffany brings energy, speed and tenacity to our roster, Dallas general manager Greg Bibb said. She has playoff experience and has won a WNBA Championship. We are excited to have her join our team and help us improve.The Sun travel to Chicago to take on the Sky on Friday, while the Wings head to Atlanta to take on the Dream the same day.Play will resume following the Olympics on Aug. 26.

Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off.Malky Mackay says he wants to speak to Celtic about succeeding Ronny Deila as manager. Mackay, 44, was sacked by Wigan a year ago and has put himself forward after it was announced this week that Deila would be leaving Celtic Park in the summer.Former Everton, Manchester United and Real Sociedad boss David Moyes is the Sky Bet favourite to take over and both he and former Celtic manager Neil Lennon told Sky Sports this week that they were interested in the role. But former Celtic defender Mackay told Sky Sports News HQ on Friday: If Celtic wanted to talk to me, Id certainly be keen to do that.I think the next five-year period at Celtic is a crucial one. I think a record 10 titles in a row is achievable and a strong focus should be there.But for that to happen, I think there is a detailed and strategic plan needed going forward. I think I could help with that and bring a fresh approach. Moyes says he will wait until the summer to make a decision on the Celtic job Ive got an understanding of the club and an ability for that to happen.
