Somebody has to win this game, right? The league’s two worst teams, with a combined 1-15 record, square off and I don’t know how much analysis is going to help here, but we will try nevertheless. The Sky have battled admirably, losing to both L.A. and Phoenix by single digits their last two games, but at times look a mess. Tuesday’s loss to the Sparks showed a balanced attack offensively with Cheyenne Parker (13 points), Allie Quigley (12) and Stefanie Dolson (10) leading the way, while several other players chipped in points here and there.

It is tough to win games, however, when your leading scorer has 13 points. Cappie Pondexter went 2-for-11, bringing her shooting percentage for the season down to 33%, by far the worst of her long career. With the season already getting away from them, you have to wonder if Kahleah Copper, the second year player that was a part of the Elena Delle Donne trade this summer, should get more burn so that the Sky can figure out moving forward what they have there.

However great the struggles are for Chicago, at least they have picked up a win. With each passing game, the question of “when” gets bigger and bigger for San Antonio. Their most recent loss, an 85-76 final at the hands of Seattle, was one made to look closer thanks to a fourth quarter push from the Stars. Kayla McBride had her second straight game of scoring 20+ as she looks to have broken out of a small two game slump, while Moriah Jefferson and Kelsey Plum both still appear to be on a minutes limit of some sort, logging just 22 and 25 minutes, respectively. This season was also going to be a struggle for the Stars, and it appears another number one pick is in their future.

This is a toss up for me as well, with both teams desperate for a win. I’m usually against picking something before I’ve seen it actually happen, but I’ll take a chance and go for the Stars and the under.
