The Chicago Sky and Atlanta Dream meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the State Farm Arena.

Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.8 points and 5.9 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 14.1 points and 2.6 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 82.2 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.9 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have split their last six road games.
The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap an 11-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 70.7 points on 36.9 percent shooting and allowing 79.3 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.9 points and 3.1 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.8 points and 2.6 assists. Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.3 rebounds and Renee Montgomery is dishing 2.7 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 28.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost their last four home games.
The Sky are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Dream are 6-18 ATS in their last 24 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The over is 13-6-1 in the last 20 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Dream last 5 overall. The over is 12-3-1 in Sky last 16 overall.
The Atlanta Dream are not only riding an 11-game losing streak, but they lose at home by an average of 7.5 points while shooting 35.8 percent from the field, and they're losing their last five games overall by an average of 9.2 points. The Chicago Sky aren't the same team on the road as they are at home, but they're dangerous offensively and could mop the floor with the Dream if those outside shots are falling. The Dream can't score and are simply counting the days until the offseason. The Sky should cruise in this contest.
