Los Angeles Sparks at Chicago Sky 5/28/21 - WNBA Picks & Predictions

The Los Angeles Sparks look for their first victory of the season when visiting the Chicago Sky on Friday. Los Angeles is 0-2 following losses of 94-71 to the Dallas Wings and 97-69 to the Las Vegas Aces in its first two games of the regular season. Los Angeles received disappointing news as rookie Jasmine Walker, who was the seventh overall pick in April’s WNBA draft, was lost for the season due to a torn ACL.

Nneka Ogwumike is leading Los Angeles in scoring and rebounding with averages of 18.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, close behind is sister Cheny Ogwumike with averages of 11.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. The leader in assists is Kristi Toliver with an average of 4.0 assists per game. Los Angeles has only three players averaging double-figures in scoring.

Chicago looks to snap a two-game losing streak when hosting the Los Angeles on Friday. The Sky is 2-2 following a 90-83 loss to the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday. Chicago shot 39.3% overall, but hit 27 of their 28 shots from the free-throw line. Kahleah Copper was the leading scorer for Chicago with 21 points, while Diamond DeShields scored 17.

Kahleah Copper is leading Chicago in scoring with an average of 18.0 points per game, while Candace Parker is the second leading scorer and leading rebounder with averages of 16.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. Astou Ndour is the second leading rebounder with an average of 7.8 rebounds per game. Courtney Vandersloot is the leader in assists with an average of 8.5 per game.

Los Angeles has started the season poorly with two consecutive losses and has struggled without Candace Parker, who left during the offseason to play for the Chicago Sky. The Sparks also lost their No. 1 draft pick Jasmine Walker to an ACL tear. Los Angeles has failed to cover the number in five of the last six overall. Although Candace Parker has missed the last two games for the Sky due to an ankle injury, the veteran is expected to play on Friday against her former Los Angeles teammates. Final Score Prediction, Chicago Sky wins and cover ATS 91-77.
