The Chicago Sky and New York Liberty meet head-to-head in Game 3 of an exciting WNBA playoff series on Tuesday night. The Sky bounced back after a disappointing Game 1 loss with a 100-62 win on Saturday. Kahleah Cooper led the way with 20 points as five players scored in double digits.

Meanwhile, New York gets to play in front of its home crowd with a chance to grab the series lead once again. The Liberty have been hot, winning four straight games prior to their Game 2 loss. They'll need another star performance from Sabrina Ionescu (22 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists in Game 1).

Sky vs Liberty Prediction & Pick

All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.
Prediction: Chicago Sky win (56%)

FiveThirtyEight barely leans toward the Sky here. While New York may only be 9-9 at home this season, it is 5-0 in its last five games at the Barclays Center. Playing at home is clearly an advantage, but the Sky's impressive road record (12-6) showcases how tough they are to beat.

This one will come down to Chicago's defense. The Sky allowed the Liberty to shoot 49.3% from the floor and 44.3% from beyond the arc in Game 1. Those percentages dropped to 33.3% and 15.0% in Game 2. Whatever adjustments were made obviously worked and that gives the Sky the edge here.

Final Score Prediction: Sky: 86 | Liberty: 74
