A day after celebrating Independence Day and watching fireworks, the 7-9 Chicago Sky are in town and will be looking to get string some wins together as they’ve dropped five of their last seven games.
After walking away with the victory on Saturday evening, Minnesota will also be looking to put together a winning streak on Tuesday night as they lost three games in-a-row before their last matchup.
These two teams haven’t seen one another in nearly two months and any time Elena Delle Donne and Maya Moore are on the same court, it’s bound to be a must-watch game.
Before tuning in to the action tonight, be sure to keep these interesting match facts in mind:
– Minnesota currently sits second in the WNBA in points allowed, only giving up 76.6 per game. Chicago meanwhile has proven that they have the ability to score the pumpkin, ranking sixth in the league, averaging 84.5 points a game.
– Delle Donne is having an extremely productive season, averaging 20.3 points on 47 percent shooting and seven boards per matchup.
– Lynx forward Natasha Howard is having herself one heck of a season. The newcomer from the Indiana Fever is coming off of arguably her best performance of the year, tallying 21 points, four rebounds and three blocks in only 23 minutes of action.
– One player for Minnesota who has quietly been really productive for the Lynx all season has been center Sylvia Fowles. The 6’6 blocking machine is averaging 13.7 points, and 8.2 boards while putting in nearly 60 percent of her shots!
