Fever could not hold off Chicago's fourth quarter comeback as their winning streak was snapped

After defeating the Chicago twice this season, Indiana wanted to send a message to the world that they were coming. They are now on a three-game winning streak and looked to be an up-tempo team. Caitlain Clark is getting better with finding her shot, as well as putting her teammates in position to be successful. Just like the previous two matchups, the first half of the game was a grit and battle type of game. Clark and Kelsey Mitchell got their team jump started with scoring off of transitional baskets in the first half. However, things went south fast, as Chicago went on a 12-6 run at the half to cut the Fever's lead to one.


One of the key factors that the Fever wanted to do in the second half was to play smart and not turn the ball over. Welp, turnovers played a huge part in the Fever's second half collapse. With under five minutes left in regulation and up by seven, the Fever's sickness of turning the ball over was making their coach ill. They had four crucial turnovers, which helped the Sky to come-back in win the game, despite Clark being Sue Birdish and breaking records, 88-87.
