Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Betnijah Laney is grabbing three rebounds. The Chicago Sky are coming off a Friday loss to the Atlanta Dream in which they allowed 42.3 percent shooting. The Sky are getting more than enough production from their offense, but their defense has to be more consistent if they’re going to snap out of this slow start.

The San Antonio Stars are still looking for their first win after a brutal 0-5 start. The San Antonio Stars are averaging 64.4 points on 36.4 percent shooting and are allowing 76.6 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Jia Perkins is averaging 14.6 points and 2.6 rebounds while Kayla McBride is averaging 12.6 points and 1.8 assists. Dearica Hamby is the third double-digit scorer and Sophia Young-Malcolm is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The San Antonio Stars are coming off a Friday loss to the Minnesota Lynx in which they allowed 55.4 percent shooting and 74 points. The Stars just can’t catch a break on either side of the ball and remain just the second team without a win.
The Sky are 6-20 ATS in their last 26 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The Stars are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Sky are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Stars are just unbackable right now, as they're not doing much of anything right on either side of the ball. The Sky can shoot you out of the gym, and I expect that here.
