The Chicago Sky will take on the Indiana Fever on Wednesday, in a battle of two Midwest teams.

Both teams are coming off almost double digit losing streaks, in hopes to break them in this matchup.

The teams are even in the season series with Indiana winning the first matchup and Chicago taking the second.

Chicago has been without new star Candace Parker and recently just got key contributor Allie Quigley back from injury.

They recently dropped a game to the Los Angeles Sparks by five and the team shot under 40 percent from the field and the three point line.

Hopefully the Sky will take advantage of new addition and rookie Dana Evans along with better three point performances from Quigley.

In order for Indiana to win its third game of the season, they will need an all around better performance from the field and beyond the arc.

The team is taking shots but just not making them, sitting at No. 1 in field goal attempts according to Her Hoops Stats with 713 but only making 40 percent of them.

Sitting at dead last for the scoring per game, the team will need leaders like Tiffany Mitchell to help push the team forward.

The team recently lost to the Los Angeles Sparks as well by over 30 points due to again, a poor shooting performance.

In order for them to get a win they will need to become more efficient around the basket and behind the three point line.

You can catch the game on CBS Sports Network or the Fever website.
