Candace Parker continued her great postseason, playing a huge part in her team's Game 3 victory. She led her team in scoring and rebounding and had an outstanding defensive performance. Her two steals and three blocks stood out, and now she's up to 1.3 steals and 2.8 blocks per game in the playoffs.

The Sun was frustrated all game on the offensive end, committing 17 turnovers as they failed to defend home court. After a Game 1 upset win, Connecticut hasn't looked as sharp, a credit to Chicago's improved offensive execution. Games 2 & 3 were pretty tight, though, so look for Connecticut to fight hard on Tuesday with their season on the line.
The Sky didn't have a particularly great shooting game, converting only 37.1% of their field goals and 24.0% of their three-pointers. They did, however, take care of the ball, committing only eight turnovers, which was ultimately the difference. In addition to Parker, four teammates chipped in with double-digit scoring, which will be necessary again for Chicago to close out the series.
"Sun fans-- bring the energy for Game 4." - ConnecticutSun
Connecticut's Alyssa Thomas has been excellent all season, but her scoring output has been subpar the last two games. Even though she's filling up the stat sheet elsewhere, she's scored just 13 points since Game 1. Compared to her season average of 13.4, this is slightly disappointing, and she'll be counted on to bounce back on Tuesday.

Connecticut Sun vs. Chicago Sky Betting Prediction
Just like their last series, the Sky dropped Game 1 but stormed back to take Games 2 & 3. They still have to win one more to advance to the Finals, so it won't be easy with the Sun desperate to keep their hopes alive.
All three games of the series have all gone under. Expect the game to tighten up again as every possession will be key. Back the under here as the Sky look to close out the series on the road.
