The first thing you notice about this game is that it is a low scoring game. Chicago either had an off scoring game or Tulsa gave them a run for their money. Watch the game, and you decide which you think. It was a combination of both of these. Chicago could have done more, but Tulsa wasn’t gonna roll over and die.
Sylvia Fowles and Michelle Snow both rebounded like crazy in this game offer extra possessions to the Chicago Sky’s final possession count. Together they rebounded 21 boards which was over half of the team rebounding count. They both did awesome work on the defensive and offensive end as far as rebounding is concerned. Big Syl edged Michelle out in the scoring category. Michelle finished the game with 4 while Sylvia ended the game with 14.
Courtney Vandersloot was right there with Sylvia in the scoring section. She took it to the hole and shot some jumpers and collected a total of 12 points in this game. She was hot when they needed it but passed the ball when she knew should couldn’t make the play. She favored Becky Hammon. If she wasn’t scoring, she was making a way for someone else to score. She dished out 4 assists and grabbed 5 defensive rebounds.
Ivory Latta took this game into her hands but she didn’t have enough support from her team. No one else on the team scored in double digits besides her and theirs no excuse for that. I don’t care how hot a player is in a game, you still need to look to score for yourself and to help contribute. No one had that attitude on the court. Amber Holt was the second leading scorer and she scored 8. Ivory wanted this win, but she couldn’t say the same for her team.
