The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun will face off in a rematch of the 2021 WNBA semifinals Friday. The meeting marks the first between the teams this season.
Chicago took last year’s series 3-1 on their way to a WNBA championship, shocking the No. 1 seed Sun.
This year, both sides are off to strong starts. Connecticut is sitting second in the league with a 9-3 record after a three-game winning streak. Chicago sits behind the Sun in third with a 7-3 record and also is on a three-game winning streak.
The Sun have been dominant to start their 2022 campaign, topping the league in 3-point percentage at 37.1 and recoding a 46.4 field goal percentage, the second-best in the WNBA.
In the team’s 93-86 victory Sunday over the Seattle Storm, Jonquel Jones and DeWanna Bonner combined for a staggering 46 points.
The Chicago Sky’s offense hasn’t been too shabby either, with the team registering a league-leading 22.5 assists per game while averaging 81.7 points per matchup, the fourth-best in the WNBA.
The Sky downed the Washington Mystics 91-82 on Sunday as four players finished in the double figures.

The Storm will have a busy week, playing Atlanta on Tuesday followed by Dallas on Friday and Sunday. Seattle has been bogged down by COVID-19 protocols, losing Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird and Ezi Magbegor at various points this season.
With most of the squad back on the court, the Storm will look to improve upon their 5-5 record. Sitting on a two-game losing streak, Seattle will be eager to get back in the win column.
The Storm’s first matchup of the week will come against a Dream side fresh off a win Sunday over the Fever. Atlanta rookie Rhyne Howard is averaging 16.2 points per game across 11 appearances on the season.
