The Dallas Wings battled against the Chicago Sky for a second half comeback that allowed them to overcome a 24-point trail, but still came up short 92-91.
Liz Cambage opened up the scoring with a driving layup, yet the tone in the first half was not set in the Wings’ favor. The Chicago Sky rocketed down the court each play and looked significantly faster than the Wings, more noticeably in the first quarter.
The Wings were down by as many as 24 points in the first half behind Allie Quigley’s 11 points. The Sky led the game 55-36 going into halftime before Dallas returned to the game looking completely re-energized.
The Dallas Wings absolutely dominated the second half and looked exactly like the explosive, young team that should be feared in this league. They scored 36 points alone in the third quarter while limiting the Sky to 17 points.
Rise Together? The Wings are familiar.

Cambage managed to rally the Wings back to life before getting her seventh technical of the season, creating the opportunity for the Chicago Sky to take the lead and win the game.
Allie Quigley, who earned her second All Star 3PT contest title this weekend, led the with Sky 22 points, 12 of which were three-pointers.
Cambage ended the night with 33 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks. Prior to the game, the Wings held a short pre-game ceremony in recognition of Liz Cambage’s most scored points (53) in a single game in WNBA history. Cambage was presented with her nifty framed jersey detailing her record-setting performance against the NY Liberty.
The Wings hit the road to take on the Indiana Fever this Thursday possibly without Cambage as they head into muggy waters for playoff contention. After tonight’s loss, the Wings (14-12) are tied with the Connecticut Sun for eighth place .
“I won’t know until we hear from the league office and the GM,” said Coach Fred Williams regarding Liz’s potential suspension. “But for us, we have to plan accordingly. If things were to happen we’ll have either Kayla George step into that role or [Azurá] Stevens.”
