Sun vs Sky Game 2 Prediction: Connecticut to dominate Chicago again?

Sun vs Sky Game 2 Prediction: The Chicago Sky is expected to bounce back and win the upcoming Game 2 of the WNBA Semifinals against the Connecticut Sun as per the latest prediction.

The excitement in the postseason of the WNBA is reaching new heights with the top sides locking horns to qualify for the Finals. The Connecticut Sun will be meeting the Chicago Sky in Game 2 of the Semifinals on Wednesday, 31 August. It was a fantastic performance from Curt Miller’s squad in Game 1 as they handed a defeat to the Sky and put the defending champions on the back foot. It was a complete team effort from the Sun led by DeWanna Bonner 15 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Alyssa Thomas and Jonquel Jones performed well too and added 24 points, 19 rebounds, and 7 assists together.

The Chicago Sky would have been surely very disappointed by their performance in Game 1. It’s a do-or-die contest now and the Sky will aim to give a crushing loss to the Sun at the Wintrust Arena and force the decider. Candace Parker was the top performer for Chicago from the last game as she finished with 19 points and 18 rebounds.
