Storm vs Sky predictions

As the Seattle Storm prepares to take on the Chicago Sky, fans can expect a thrilling matchup between two dynamic teams. On the Storm's side, I think Nneka Ogwumike will continue her dominant play, dropping at least 20 points and snagging around 7 rebounds. Her athleticism and savvy on the court will be a handful for the Sky's defense. Meanwhile, Skylar Diggins-Smith is due for a breakout game, and I expect her to dish out 7-8 assists while chipping in around 15 points of her own. If these two stars can get going, the Storm will be tough to beat.

On the other side, the Chicago Sky has their own firepower, led by Marina Mabrey, who's fresh off a 23-point outing. I think she'll follow that up with another strong performance, scoring around 18 points and adding 4-5 assists. Angel Reese has been a beast on the boards, and I expect her to pull down at least 8 rebounds, giving the Sky crucial second-chance opportunities. If the Sky can capitalize on those chances, they'll be in great shape.

So, who's going to come out on top in this one? Based on their recent form and talent, I think the Chicago Sky has the edge. They've got the momentum after Mabrey's big game, and their defense has shown flashes of brilliance. The Storm, on the other hand, has struggled on the road. While Nneka Ogwumike will surely give it her all, I think the Sky's balanced attack and home-court advantage will give them the win. What do you think, Sky fans? Are you ready to take down the Storm?
