Last games: On Tuesday, the Sky lost to the visiting Connecticut Sun 77-66 and the Shock lost to the visiting Atlanta Dream 76-68.

Skinny: By beating Tulsa on Tuesday, Atlanta won its fourth game in a row and is tied with the Sky for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, 3 games out of first. The Sky needs to take advantage of some favorable scheduling this week. Tulsa and the Los Angeles Sparks, who will be at Allstate Arena on Saturday, both have losing records. Tulsa has the worst record in the league. The Shock has won only one game, a 77-59 victory over the Washington Mystics on June 18. Since then, Tulsa has lost 10 straight. Center Liz Cambage, a 6-foot-8 rookie out of Australia, is an intriguing matchup for Sky center Sylvia Fowles. She had 16 points in the Shock's loss to Atlanta. Veteran forward Sheryl Swoopes, who is in her 12th year in the league and has been hampered by various injuries this season, is starting to gain some footing. She had 12 points in 34 minutes against Atlanta. The Sky fumbled away a golden opportunity to beat one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference on Tuesday, turning the ball over 20 times against Connecticut. Guard Epiphanny Prince scored a team-high 16 points, while Fowles added 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Next: Los Angeles Sparks at Sky, 7 p.m. Saturday
