Last night, the Tulsa Shock dealt the Atlanta Dream one of the WNBA season’s biggest upsets so far with a 90-63 victory. Tulsa, who are second-to-last in the Western Conference, continued to improve their record and extended their win streak to three straight. On the flip side, the Dream have now lost four in a row, but were able to maintain their slot at second in the East with a record of 10-5.
The Shock were lead by huge offensive showings from center Elizabeth Cambage and forward Glory Jonhson. Cambage had an all-around amazing night with 23 points on 8-10 shooting, 15 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks for a double-double. Johnson was equally helpful with a double-double of her own, dropping 24 points and grabbing 10 boards.
Tulsa’s head coach, Gary Kloppenburg, spoke on both ladies after the game: “Glory and Liz were tremendous. Both are power players offensively and are great at getting rebounds, particularly offensive boards.” But the best reaction may have come from Cambage herself, who Tweeted, “YO WE ON A 3 GAME WINNING STREAK!! HYPED X 47885321.”
Cambage wore the Nike Kobe 8 System, which is somewhat of a surprising choice for a center due to its low cut design. However, with a breathable engineered mesh upper, a full-length Lunarlon midsole insert, and tons of traction, the Kobe 8 System is certainly suitable for players of all sizes and levels.
