Chi Sky clinch playoff berth

The Sky hung on to edge the Dream, 98-96, which clinched a playoff berth for Chicago. They did it without Elena Delle Donne, who sat out with a foot injury.

In the evening’s other match up, the Liberty handed the Sun their seventh straight loss, 80-66.

Tomorrow’s games:

Fever at Shock

Stars at Sparks

Sun at Sky

Mercury at Lynx

Mystics at Storm

Lynx:

Excellent analysis of the Lynx’s struggles of late.

Coach Cheryl Reeve, who counts this as her most difficult stretch since taking over the head job in 2010, says the team will “break out of this, and soon.”

Take note, all managers and coaches: a team of All-Stars isn’t enough…..you must have team chemistry to go far. And to get that, the core of the team needs to be kept intact for a long time. Constant restructuring is a detriment to a team.

Mystics:

The Mystics are out West chasing a playoff spot.

Sparks:

A full day of events are on tap tomorrow for “We Are Women” day at the Stars at Sparks game. I will be among the media who will interview Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Laila Ali and WNBA president Laurel Richie before the game. (Woot!)
