Chicago Sky beats an injury hobbled Indiana Fever team, 71-61

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Sky (5-3) got back on the winning column by defeating the Indiana Fever (1-6) 71-61 on the road.

Epiphanny Prince led the way for Chicago by scoring 21 points and drained three three pointers to go with 6 rebounds. In addition, Elena Delle Donne and Sylvia Fowles added 13 and 11 points respectively. A 22-10 fourth quarter run proved to be the difference in the game, which was otherwise close and a winnable one for the Defending Champions.

For the Fever, Shavonte Zellous scored 17 points and was a bright point for the team but didn't appear to get much help from anyone else, and part of it comes from injuries to multiple key players - five to be exact. Jessica Davenport will sit the year out due to a stress fracture in her left tibia. Katie Douglas has a bulging disc in her lower back. Erin Phillips is nursing a torn meniscus. Jeannette Pohlen is rehabbing from a torn left ACL from last year. And today, Tamika Catchings sat out due to a back injury.
