The Connecticut Sun could easily sit players as they have nothing to play for, locked into the third seed, but this line suggests they're going to ply their key players. The Chicago Sky have had issues playing up their level of competition, and they've lost all 3 games against the Sun this season, 2 of those games decided by double digits. Knowing that, it's lay the chalk with the Sun or pass for me.
