Connecticut Sun vs Chicago Sky key matchups

Kamilla Cardoso vs Alyssa Thomas

Kamilla Cardoso was recovering from a shoulder injury in the first encounter between the Sun and the Sky. The 6-foot-7 Brazilian has returned and will anchor Chicago on both ends of the floor on Wednesday. Alyssa Thomas, who gives up five inches, will have her hands full against the former South Carolina star.

Sending help defense to Cardoso in the post could mean Angel Reese will have some wiggle room to cause chaos.

DeWanna Bonner vs Angel Reese

DeWanna Bonner and Angel Reese went toe-to-toe in the first game between the two teams. The veteran had arguably won their head-to-head duels but the rookie also had her moments. If Reese can give Bonner a tough time scoring the ball, Chicago might be able to pull off an upset.

DiJonai Carrington vs Marina Mabrey

Marina Mabrey is the driver that makes Chicago’s offense hum. She will go up against DiJonai Carrington, one of the best perimeter defenders in the WNBA. The Sky offense could stutter if Carrington does her job on the defensive end.
