Another WNBA early bird special is in the cards on Wednesday. After a two-game road trip, the Chicago Sky host the Seattle Storm on Wednesday at 11 PM CT.
Seattle has been scorching hot, winning eight of their last 10 games. The hot streak has everything to do with the acquisition of seven-time All-Star center Tina Charles. The Storm are 6-1 since Charles joined the team. She has been highly productive, averaging 10.3 PPG and shooting 50% from the floor while picking up 5.9 RPG.
Seattle's leader of the pack is four-time All-Star Breanna Stewart, who is currently averaging 21.0 PPG and knocking down 45.0% of her shots. The 2018 MVP is also averaging 7.2 RPG to go with 1.8 SPG.
Though the Chicago Sky are arguably the favorite to win it all again this season, the Storm are one of the few teams that could stand in their way.
Wednesday will mark the second-to-last regular-season game in Chicago for WNBA legend Sue Bird. Her final visit to the Windy City will be on August 9.
As for the Sky, they are looking to extend their four-game winning streak. During that stretch, WNBA Finals MVP Kahleah Copper has been on a tear. In her last five games, Copper is averaging 16.0 PPG and hitting 57.8% of her shots from the floor. The All-Star is also coming down with 7.0 RPG and 1.8 APG.
Courtney Vandersloot will miss her second straight game for the Sky. The point god has been dealing with a concussion since she took a tough fall against the Sparks on July 14.
