Chicago Sky (9-4) at Connecticut Sun (3-8)

When: 6 p.m., Mohegan Sun Arena

Web: (LiveAccess)

Last time: On Wednesday, the Sky defeated the visiting Washington Mystics 89-85; on Saturday, the Sun lost to the host Indiana Fever 78-66.

Skinny: Sky center Sylvia Fowles is coming off one of her best games of the season, a 26-point, 18-rebound outburst against the Mystics. Can she put together a similar performance against one of her biggest adversaries, Sun center Tina Charles? Charles was ejected from the Sun's loss to the Fever when she got her second technical foul for disputing an official's call. The Sun already was down three key players. Starting point guard Kara Lawson was out with a knee injury, guard Renee Montgomery was out with an ankle injury and guard Tan White did not play because of a broken finger. This will be the last game the Sky will play before all-star voting ends Sunday at 11 p.m. Sky rookie forward Elena Delle Donne is leading all vote-getters. If she would finish in that position, she would be the first rookie in league history to do so. To participate in the all-star voting, visit

Next: Sky at New York Liberty, 10 a.m. Thursday
