The Scouting Report
For the first five games of the 2014 season, the Tulsa Shock couldn’t catch a break; they lost four of those games by four points or fewer, struggling to close opponents out down the stretch. Then, suddenly, the squad seemed to turn their luck around, winning four games in a row and notching an 105–99 overtime win against the Chicago Sky on June 22. During that victory, second-year player Skylar Diggins scored a career-high 33 points and recorded six steals, reaffirming her place as one of the league’s rising superstars. The Shock have a chance to continue to make up ground with their July 12 matchup against the Washington Mystics.
The Tulsa Shock traces its roots back to 1998, when they entered the second WNBA season as the Detroit Shock. In the following decade, the Shock established itself as one of the league's premier franchises, winning titles in 2003, 2006, and 2008. The team took its championship pedigree to Tulsa in 2010, where it fills a basketball-sized void in a city without an NBA team or at least a mayor capable of dunking.
