Chicago Sky Schedule
The Chicago Sky are ready to reach for new heights this season as they hit the court to take
on some of the best teams in the Women's National Basketball Association. The Sky have a lot of talent on the roster this
season, and they're hoping to climb to the top of the standings. The Sky are coming off the best season in franchise history,
as the team was able to win 24 games and take home the top seed in the Eastern Conference. They did not fare well in the playoffs,
so this team is back in 2014 and hungry for victories. The Sky have some tough matchups coming their way at home this season,
and they'll need a great crowd behind them to push them over the top for some key victories.
The Sky will definitely
be looking forward to their August 10th matchup with the Atlanta Dream. The Dream have a good group of players that are always
looking to lay it all out on the floor in the hope of a victory. If the Sky can take them down, it will be a big win for this
squad. Another tough team will come into Allstate Arena when the Washington Mystics arrive. The Mystics will look to play
some trickery on the Sky when they hit the court, and Chicago will have to play disciplined basketball to get the job done.
Make sure you check out the remainder of the schedule to see what else is on tap.
Chicago Sky History
Chicago Sky was formed in 2005, and played their first game in the 2006 season. The city of Chicago was awarded their WNBA
franchise during 2005, and in May of that year, Coach Dave Cowens, who is a former NBA player and coach, signed on to be the
head coach and general manager of the new team. The Chicago Sky was originally called WNBA Chicago, but was later changed
to reflect the beauty of the city's skyline. The team's colors also reflect the skyline with their yellow and light blue hues
that are reminiscent of a sunny day in Chicago. There may be plenty of things to do around the Windy City, it being one of
the most famous cities in the world and all, but it still doesn't get any better than watching a big-time Chicago Sky game
alongside thousands of your fellow fans.
WNBA Fan Experience
There's nothing quite like seeing your favorite
WNBA team take the court right before your eyes in a game that is sure to have plenty of twists, turns and bench-gripping
moments. Though there are lots of ways to experience sports these days, there is still only one way to get the full experience,
and it definitely isn't sitting at home cranking up your stereo system and your flatscreen. When the game is on the line and
the Sky are digging in looking to knock down a clutch bucket to help seal the deal against a conference rival, you can count
on there being an atmosphere that you'll be talking about a long time after the final whistle. The WNBA is always absolutely
filled with great matchups, and the Sky tend to be battling it out in some of the very best games of the season.
What is the furthest that the Chicago Sky have reached in the WNBA Playoffs?
The answer is the Conference
Semifinals, which the team reached in 2013. They ended up falling to Indiana in that series, but the team was happy to make
its first playoff appearance in franchise history. The Sky are looking to build on that and make a run at the WNBA title as
soon as this season.
Chicago Sky Fans
Come and watch some of the best athletes in the country run for
rebounds, scramble for loose balls and drive the ball to the basket. Listening to the team on the radio or watching them on
TV is great, but there's nothing like seeing the Chicago Sky in person. This is a sport that really springs to life when you
get a chance to see the drama unfold before your very eyes, as the buzz of the crowd helps make WNBA games a completely different
level of spectator sports experience. As soon as you're there in the middle of a game that is still up in the air, with the
fans digging in and waiting for an epic finale, you'll definitely be glad that you're not still sitting at home wondering
what the atmosphere of the big game is like. These ladies can do a little bit of everything, guaranteeing an exciting style
of basketball that always has fans jumping out of their seat on a regular basis throughout the regular season and into the
playoffs. At Allstate Arena in Chicago, you'll have the perfect place for all the biggest moments in another Chicago Sky season.
