Chicago Sky scouting report

Success - Article sent! close

Chicago Sky (9-15) at Indiana Fever (16-8), 6 p.m. today, Bankers Life Fieldhouse

TV: Comcast CN100

Last time: On Tuesday, the host Sky lost to the Connecticut Sun, 83-72; on Thursday the visiting Fever defeated the New York Liberty, 76-63.

Skinny: The Fever has certainly had the Sky's number over the years, and this year is no exception. The Fever is already 4-0 against the Sky in 2012 and is aiming for the series sweep. Over the last three years, the Fever is 12-1 against the Sky, which hasn't won a game in Indianapolis since Aug. 13, 2006.

The Fever is a particularly tough draw right now, having won four games in a row and six of its last seven. The last time these two teams met (July 7), the Fever narrowly escaped with an 88-86 overtime win, thanks in part to 18 points from former Stevenson star Tamika Catchings.

A big question for the Sky will be whether or not Olympic center Sylvia Fowles will play. She's missed the last two games, with team officials citing personal reasons. Reserve Carolyn Swords has filled in admirably, totaling 24 points and 13 rebounds in two games against the Connecticut Sun, the first-place team in the Eastern Conference.

Next: Los Angeles Sparks at Sky, 5 p.m. Sunday
