This looks like an easy one for the Shock, but we don't see it that way. You have to go to school on the emotional significance of this game for the Shock, who are coming off of two highly-emotional games back-to-back with the Sun and a third coming shortly. All you have to do is look what happened last night. Off the same two emotional games the Shock were a no-show at home last night against the winless Dream, needing OT to put them away. Well here are the Shock facing the same emotional letdown situation, and they aren't in front of the home-town fans either, making it an even more challenging game. The Sky has played Connecticut, LA, and Minnesota to within six points at home and this is a great spot for them to steal one.
