As Ive said before, the Chicago Sky are always attractive in the underdog role, as there's not a game they can't win. However, I've also said countless times that the Connecticut Sun are probably the most talented team in the league from top to bottom, and I don't believe they're going to let their season come to an end without a fight. Game 3 came down to the wire and could have gone either way. This has been a back and forth series, and these things usually go the distance. It should be another tight game that comes down to the last few minutes, but I'll ride with the Sun to force a deciding game 5.
