Phoenix is an exciting team to watch as they get up and down the floor better than any WNBA team. That pace is reflected by the scoring column where they average 86.3 ppg. They have two very adept scorers in Cappie Pondexter (25.1 ppg) and Diana Turasi (24.4 ppg). They don't miss many opportunities from the charity stripe where they are connecting on 81.8%. The home tally has been even more impressive as they have scored 91.2 ppg. Chicago played their opener here and that game finished at 128 points scored, but now that these teams have their legs, the scoring and margin of victory should be much larger in this one. Chicago is a good shooting team at 43.3% and has had a favorable home schedule as this game is just their fourth on the road. Phoenix has blowout potential here in a high-scoring affair so we will also take the OVER.
