The Indiana Fever and Chicago Sky face off in their 14th game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Saturday.
The Indiana Fever have had plenty of struggles this season but they are coming off their biggest win of the season. In the last game the Fever faced off with the Seattle Storm and the offense was strong putting up 90 points, which was enough to come away with a six point victory. Kennedy Burke was the star of the show for the Fever in the last game putting up 23 points and three rebounds. On the season the Fever are averaging 82.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 87.2 points per game.
Kelsey Mitchell has been the star of the show for the Fever averaging 19 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. Mitchell is also a sharpshooter from deep shooting 43.2 percent from the field. In this game the Fever need the offense to get going.
On the other side of this matchup is the Chicago Sky who have been playing some really good basketball coming into this game having won three games in a row. In the Sky’s last game they took on a really bad New York Liberty team and the Sky had no issue coming away with a 101-85 victory. In the last game the Sky had five players who scored at least 11 points. Azura Stevens was the best player for the Sky averaging 25 points and seven rebounds.
On the season the Sky are averaging 87.1 points while giving up 82.5 points per game. The best player for the Sky has been Allie Quigley who comes into this game averaging 14.3 points while shooting 47.7 percent from the field.
The Sky are the better team and they are going to have no issue coming away with another big victory in this game. Look for the Sky’s defense to slow down a Fever team who’s offense hasn’t been elite this season. Back the Sky to get the job done.
