Sky Runs Storm Out of The Building, 74-58

+

From reading this box score and recap of a game that wasn't available on LiveAccess, nor ESPN, nor NBA TV, four Sky players scored in double digits, led by Sylvia Fowles' 16 points and 15 boards including 7 on the offensive glass. The only bad stats I saw were that Courtney only made 1 of 9 shots, Swin was 2 for 10, and Epiphanny Prince only scored 17 points. But when the Sky scored 20 points against the Storm's 8 in the fourth quarter, all's well that ends well. For the Storm, only two players, Ann Wauters and Tina Thompson, both post players who are out of their prime scored in double digits with 12 and 13 points respectively. Sue Bird did get 10 dimes but this dollar wasn't worth it when she was 0-3 in three point shots, and only managed to score 8 points overall, along with this loss. Victoria Dunlap added 38 minutes of bench time. Sounds familiar like last year... The Sky goes to 7-1 but it will face a tough road trip now starting this Saturday against the Fever and next Saturday against the Lynx. For the Storm, it goes to 1-7 and like a team out East, going old didn't help them one bit. Fortunately, Sue's old crew will play five of their next six games or the rest of their June games against teams with losing records. Four of these games will be against teams with a sub .400 record, and three of these games will be against the Shock or Mystics. In fact, the Storm has a back to back against the Mystics. If the Storm can't win most (if not all) of these competitive games (can't call them cupcakes anymore unfortunately), it won't make the playoffs to say the very least.
