According to: SARAH TROTTO CHICAGO (AP) via the WNBA.
“MVP Elena Delle Donne had a rare quiet night. Her Chicago Sky teammates picked her up. Allie Quigley scored 20 points to help the Sky beat the Indiana Fever 77-72 Thursday night in the opener of the Eastern Conference semifinals.”
The Fever started out with a quick 4-0 lead. By deciding to take outside jumpers while the Sky attacked the cup; the Fever had a 9pt deficit by end of the 1qt. The newly crowned MVP didn’t have a great shooting night. She did finish with 11 boards and 100% from the line.
If the Sky wants to get out of the east they will have to figure out how to not let teams back into games. The last thing they want to do is, let the Fever think they have a chance. If this thing becomes a battle, the winner might be gassed in the next round. If you are going to face who I believe will be the Liberty, then they will need to wrap this series up quickly.
While we wait to see who emerges as the winner, check out Courtney Vandersloot Score 17 Points for the Sky.
