CHICAGO – WNBA legend Sylvia Fowles stole the show in the first half of the 2022 All-Star Game when she took a split opportunity, to the delight of the overcrowded Winterst Arena crowd.
The Fowles – who began his career at the Chicago Sky before joining the Minnesota Lynx in 2015, with whom he won two championships – were embraced by his teammates over Tim Wilson, who led Tim Stewart 59-39.
Falls has now won the first and last All-Star Games of his career. The last time was in 2009.
Falls and Teammate were co-captains and newcomers to the soon-to-be-retired Sue Bird, as they made their eighth and 13th All-Star appearances, respectively, and were honored in midgame for their contributions to the game.
Four-time defensive player and 2017 league MVP, Falls scored the first point of the game by scoring with a 3-pointer. Fowles, WNBA’s all-time leading rebounder, made just 3 attempts in his WNBA career when he entered the game.
He added 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 stills and 1 block in the first 11 minutes.
