Another day, another second-half collapse turned into an ugly win for the Chicago Sky. The Sky defeated the Atlanta Dream 73-65.
It was all Chicago in the first half, getting to the basket with urgency. At one point, the Sky were up by 20 points in the first quarter. The team seemed like they were going to run away with this game early.
However, in typical Sky fashion, the Dream slowly crept back into the game. By the second half, the Dream cut the lead to single digits, forced some turnovers, and at one point took the lead. Shockingly enough, there were only two lead changes in the entire game. In the end, the Sky held their ground and came out on top.
Kahleah Copper owned the game from start to finish. Getting to the basket and snagging rebounds, she did it all tonight for Chicago in Atlanta. Copper ended with a game-high 21 points going 3-4 from behind the arc, while picking up eight rebounds.
The biggest concern at the moment for Chicago is what is going on with Allie Quigley?
Tonight, the veteran guard went 0-4 from the field, 0-2 from three, and ending the night with three points, all coming at the stripe. Quigley played zero minutes in the fourth as 31-year-old rookie Rebekah Gardner took her place on the court.
“Keep shooting. We only missed the last one,” said head coach James Wade on the shooting struggles.
