After Candice Dupree and Skylar Diggins-Smith each represented their squads in Saturday’s All-Star game, the two will prepare to start the second half of the season in their final meeting of the year.
So far, the Dallas Wings (10-12) hold a 2-1 lead in the season series over the Indiana Fever (8-13) who have dropped six of their last seven games prior to the All-Star break. Their most recent victory over the Phoenix Mercury 84-77, was a huge one as Indiana looks to claw their way back in to the playoff picture. The Fever were led by Erica Wheeler and Candice Dupree who scored 20 and 17, respectively, in the win over the Mercury. Dupree also finished with 14 in Saturday’s All-Star game.
The Wings look to open the second half of the season with a win at home before hitting the road against Seattle and Los Angeles. Dallas who also had a rough ending before the break, lost four of their last six games. Their most recent win came in double-overtime against the Chicago Sky, where Diggins-Smith dropped 26, and rookie Kaela Davis added a career-high 23 points in the 112-106 victory. Diggins-Smith also contributed 8 points and 7 assists to the Wests’ All-Star victory on Saturday.
