When the Indiana Fever and Chicago Sky square off tonight at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, it is anticipated to be a one-sided contest. This season’s matchup features two clubs that have entirely different backstories. The Fever will have a tough task ahead of them if they want to avoid suffering their sixth straight loss. The Chicago Sky, on the other hand, will try to beat the Fever for the sixth time in a row when they play each other today.
Indiana’s most recent contest concluded in a humiliating 22-point loss against the Storm. The opposition outplayed the Fever in every area. The only players who looked decent and combined for 35 points and 7 rebounds were Kelsey Mitchell and NaLyssa Smith. If the Fever wants to avoid another loss tonight, they have a lot of things to improve.
The Chicago Sky is fresh off a decisive victory over the Mercury in the previous match. The performance by Allie Quigley and Candace Parker was outstanding. Quigley led her team with 19 points and 5 rebounds. Parker tacked on 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists. The Sky won’t want to blow a simple opportunity to defeat the slumping Fever tonight.
Head to Head:
These two WNBA clubs have played each other 46 times. The Chicago Sky has slightly outperformed the Indiana Fever with 24 victories to 22, giving them the tiny advantage. In the most recent five matchups, the Sky won four and the Fever just one.
Team Form & Prediction:
The Indiana Fever’s performance this season is not very noteworthy. They are currently in last place in the Eastern Conference with a 5-18 record. If we look at the most recent games, Indiana has a five-game losing run. Only three of their first 11 home games have been victories. After losing to the Seattle Storm by a score of 73-95 in their previous match, the Fever will host the Chicago Sky.
The Chicago Sky is currently having a fantastic season. Moreover, with a record of 15-5, they are in first place in the Eastern Conference and appear to be very strong. The current victory streak for Chicago is 5. Up till this point, they had a 7-3 record in away games. The Sky defeated the Phoenix Mercury in their most recent match, 91-75, and will now take on the Indiana Fever.
Given the recent stats and form, we can expect this game to go in the Sky’s favor and by a big margin. However, the under dogs can create an upset, but that looks highly unlikely.
