The Seattle Storm and Chicago Sky meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Wintrust Arena.
The Seattle Storm look for a big road win to build on their 3-2 start to the season. The Seattle Storm are averaging 76.6 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 73.2 points on 44.4 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 18.2 points and 10 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 15.2 points and 3.2 assists. Alysha Clark is the third double-digit scorer and Jordin Canada is dishing six assists. The Seattle Storm are shooting 28.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.2 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.4 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won six of their last nine road games.
The Chicago Sky look for another home win to get back to a .500 record. The Chicago Sky are averaging 79.7 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 90.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 15 points and 3.7 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 11.7 points and 2.7 assists. Jantel Lavender is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing six rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 29.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 30.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have split their last six home games.
The Storm are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 road games, 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Sky are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up loss, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and the over is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Storm last 5 overall.
The Chicago Sky had their chances to beat the Storm last week and probably should have considering they shot 51.4 percent from the field. Clean up the 19 turnovers, and the Sky win that contest. The Seattle Storm have taken a step back offensively and aren't nearly as good on the road as they are at home. The Chicago Sky still have to improve defensively and be better with the silly mistakes, but this is a game they have to win against a team they outplayed already this season. I'll lay the bucket with the Sky.
