Success - Article sent! close


Chicago Sky (4-2) at Tulsa Shock (1-7)

When:11:30 a.m., Thursday, at BOK Center

TV:None; available on (LiveAccess)

Last time:On Sunday, the Sky lost to the host Atlanta Dream, 88-74. The Shock lost to the visiting Phoenix Mercury, 108-103, in overtime.

Skinny:The Sky looks to get back on the right side of the tracks against the worst team in the WNBA. The Shock boasts rookie point guard and former Notre Dame standout Skylar Diggins but is hurting without 6-foot-8 center Liz Cambage in the lineup. She's out with an ankle injury and missed the first game in this series, a 92-71 Sky win on June 2. … Sky rookie Elena Delle Donne is coming off a career-high 25-point game on Sunday, and reserve guard Allie Quigley chipped in with 14 points at Atlanta, but it is clear that the loss of sharpshooter Epiphanny Prince (out due to contractual obligations in Russia and an ankle sprain) has taken a toll. The Sky is 1-2 without Prince. The good news is that Prince is healthy now and back from Russia early and could rejoin the Sky lineup any day.

Next: Sky at Indiana Fever, 6 p.m. Saturday
