“Messiness” was the Connecticut Sun’s paraphrased game plan revealed by head coach Curt Miller post-game on Wednesday. Sunday’s matinee Game 3 matchup between the Sun and Chicago Sky contained a mess that was perhaps outside the scope of Miller’s definition. The Sky overcame the Sun by a score of 76-72 – however, both teams played some rather discombobulated ball. The Sun committed 17 turnovers which would imply the Sky would have plenty of opportunities to widen the lead. That did not happen. “Free-flowing, back-cutting, a lot of cutting – it’s very pretty when they get it going. They imposed their will…We did not make it messy enough,” Miller said on the Sky’s gameplay during a post-game conference after Game 2.…

The Chicago Sky got a historic playoff performance from Candace Parker, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Connecticut Sun’s lockdown defense in Game 1 of the WNBA semifinal series. What will James Wade and his staff need to adjust in this best-of-five matchup? Janice Scurio and Subria Whitaker discuss on today’s CHGO Sky Podcast.

The Connecticut Sun overcame the Chicago Sky in Game 1 of the WNBA Semifinals on Sunday night. The Sky swept the Sun in the 2022 regular season. However, all games were victories with single-digit margins, this game included. This low-scoring affair saw the Sky looking rather unprepared for Connecticut’s defense. Plenty of defensive stops forced shot clock violations, robbing the Sky of valuable possessions.  The Sky’s 63 points were the fewest scored in the 2022 season. The Sky’s 35.3% field goal shooting was Chicago’s lowest percentage in a playoff game since 2014. With shots not falling, there was also a lack of offensive boards for the Sky (7), and in response, there were nearly twice as many for the Sun…

We never really had a doubt, did we, Skytown? In an exhilarating winner-take-all Game 3, the Chicago Sky abruptly ended the New York Liberty’s 2022 season by a score of 90-72. This high-scoring affair included six Sky players scoring in double figures. One of the keys to this game was to take the sold-out crowd at Barclays Center in Brooklyn out of the game early, and strike first. The Sky outscored the Liberty in the paint during the first quarter by 14-6, and followed with 29 points in the second quarter. Courtney Vandersloot was the first to reach double-digits in scoring, and led all scorers with 12 first half points. “The more experienced team won tonight,” Liberty head coach Sandy…

Kahleah Copper

Truth, justice, and the fourth quarter. These are ideals the Sky try to uphold almost every day, but virtue is easier to describe than execute. In the first-ever postseason matchup between these two clubs, the Chicago Sky fell to the New York Liberty, 98-91. “This is playoff basketball,” Liberty head coach Sandy Brondello told reporters after the game. “We found a way to win.” Basketball is truly a game of runs; the Sky thought their six point lead would be safe with 3:23 left in the fourth quarter. However, the Sky missed 10 out of their last 11 shots that would have helped keep the game out of reach. Meanwhile, the Liberty went on a 13-0 run to end the…

The Chicago Sky found themselves waterlogged on Tuesday night in a tempestuous battle with the Seattle Storm, losing 111-100. This high-scoring affair came dangerously close to the highest scoring WNBA game in the league’s 26-year history; an Aces win over the Liberty, 116-107 on July 14 of this year. “You could tell the team we were playing were desperate, and they were playing for something,” Coach James Wade told reporters in a conference after the game. “We didn’t do a good enough job of guarding them,” Courtney Vandersloot affirmed in the same conference moments after. The Storm found themselves in the eye of a blustery 38 points scored in the first quarter, along with etching some WNBA history. They set…
