It was a rather underwhelming night from the Chicago Sky before a last-minute comeback fell short at the buzzer as Seattle handed Chicago their second loss of the season as they snuck past the Sky 74-71.

Do not let the score fool you. Chicago’s best basketball came in the last minute and a half of the game, as they cut the deficit to three before falling short of the tie.

Chicago’s defense was nonexistent on Wednesday. The Storm were able to get to the glass and shoot across the perimeter with ease. They had no answers for Seattle big Ezi Magbegor, who led all scorers tying her career-high 21 points. She also picked up six rebounds and blocked two shots along the way.

As a team, they looked gassed early. They struggled to keep up with Seattle’s pace and could not stop them in transition. On top of that, their ball security was atrocious and they simply could not find any rhythm offensively until it was too late.

The one positive from tonight’s game has to be center Azurá Stevens. She had a terrific outing filling up the stat sheet in almost every category. She ended the night with a team-high 18 points, five rebounds, and one block.
