Battle of former MVP's: Sylvia Fowles and Breanna Stewart will have a LOT to say in who wins tonight's contest. Fowles dominated the paint with 17 points and 18 rebounds in a win over the Sun while Stewie showed she was back fully with an impressive all around impact of 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals. While both have different types of games, Fowles they are equally as impactful. Whichever player imposes their will the most will pretty much decide the outcome of the game.
