The Dream only scored 35 points in the second half and that led to the loss. The Dream come into this game averaging 80.2 points per game while the defense is giving up 88.4 points per game.
On offense the best player for the Dream has been Betnijah Laney who is averaging 16.5 points while shooting 47.6 percent from the field. In this game Atlanta needs their defense to step up.
On the other side of this matchup is the Chicago Sky who have found some success inside the bubble but coming into this game they have lost three games in a row. In the last game the Sky only scored 18 points in the second quarter and 10th points in the 4th quarter, and that led to the loss.

The Sky’s best player has been Allie Quigley who comes into this game averaging 15.9 points while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. Kahleah Cooper has also found success averaging 14.9 points while shooting 49.8 percent from the field.
