CT Sun Vs. Sky Preview: Connecticut Looking For Eighth Straight Win

The Sun just cannot stop winning.

Connecticut has won each of its last seven games, and is trying to stretch its run to eight on the road against the Chicago Sky on Sunday at Wintrust Arena.

With their strong start, the Sun have built a little bit of a cushion in the Eastern Conference standings, leading by two games over the Washington Mystics and a win on the road would give the franchise its longest winning streak since a 12-game run in 2006.
