The Sky won three of their past four games and are coming off a 91-88 victory over the Seattle Storm.Sky star Elena Delle Donne scored 35 points on 14-of-24 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds against Seattle. She scored the teams final nine points, including a game-winning 3-pointer with one second remaining.Phoenix and Chicago already faced each other twice this season, and they will meet for the second time in 10 days. The Mercury beat the Sky 86-80 on June 12 in Phoenix and took a 100-95 loss July 10 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.In the most recent meeting, Allie Quigley came off the bench to score 21 points, leading six players who scored in double figures for Chicago.

Both players left the team to represent Brazil in the Summer Olympics and will not return until after the WNBAs month-long break for the Summer Games. Devin Hester Jersey . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Mike Glennon Jersey .com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona. . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. The score might be 2-0 in Indias favour, but the hosts got there despite significant fitness issues in the lead-up to the third Test in Mohali. Apart from late injuries to wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha and opener KL Rahul, India also had to deal with the possibility of fast bowler Mohammed Shami missing the match. Shami had been dealing with a stiff leg, which explained the presence of five fast bowlers in a squad that did not have a back-up opener.A few days before the Mohali game, Indias selectors had picked the squad for the last three Tests against England. Gautam Gambhir was dropped, three matches after making a comeback, in favour of Rahul, whose young career has been injury ridden. Virat Kohlis team takes pride in covering every base, so the absence of a back-up opener did not go unnoticed.Shami was having some stiffness in his hamstring, I think, a BCCI official told ESPNcricinfo. The team management wanted to ensure there was fast-bowling cover if a traditional Mohali surface, with bounce and lateral movement, was prepared. In Kolkata [against New Zealand], we saw a good green top. We had the luxury of playing an extra seamer there and it really paid off as Bhuvi [Bhuvneshwar Kumar] took a crucial five-wicket haul. Thats what we wanted to be ready for here as well.But what about cover for the openers? Former India captain Sourav Ganguly had said on ESPNcricinfo Match Day that a third opener was a must in any series. According to the BCCI official, however, Parthiv Patel, the wicketkeeper called into the squad to replace Saha, allowed the squad to go without a third specialist opener. The problem with that approach was, had Saha been fit, Parthiv wouldnt have made it to the squad, and Cheteshwar Pujara might have had to open after Rahul was injured. Under Kohlis captaincy, India have been keen on tactical flexibility, though, andd probably would have dealth with such a problem. Matt Barkley Jersey. . As it turned out, Parthiv, playing his first Test in eight years, made 42 and an unbeaten 67 off 54 balls.Parthiv will remain in the squad for the Mumbai Test, which starts on December 8. According to the BCCI official, the availability of Saha, who has not recovered fully, and Rahul will be determined in the next few days. Should Rahul not recover in time, he said, the selectors will have to consider bringing in another opener, while hoping M Vijays back spasms dont act up.There will also be only three fast bowlers in the squad for the Mumbai Test. Hardik Pandya is injured, and Ishant Sharma was released from the squad for his wedding.Picking five for Mohali also seemed to be a way of managing workload. Shamis niggle first appeared during the Rajkot Test. He had discomfort - later attributed to muscular cramps - on the first day of the series and briefly went off the field. Even if he had been fully fit, Shami had still bowled 242 overs in international cricket between July 2016 and the second Test against England. His new-ball partner, Umesh Yadav, had bowled 206.5.Shami and Umesh are the only two bowlers consistently bowling 140-plus in tandem, the official said. Thats why we need have so many back-up options: to preserve them.Also, we have the luxury of playing at home, so you can accommodate an extra fast bowler and reduce their workload in the nets. After the amount of bowling they have bowled in the matches, you cant expect them to be bowling in the nets. And there are also many series overseas next season, so there is nothing wrong with young fast bowlers being with the squad, to help them understand how things work in the team and learn.
