NEW YORK (AP) Satou and Nyara Sabally were never competitive with each other growing up in Germany. Their mom made sure of that.

The sisters, two years apart in age, will play against each other for the first time when Dallas visits New York on Sunday in a nationally televised WNBA game on ABC.

You know, our mom, she always used the Klitschko brothers as an example. She said, yeah, their mom never wanted them to fight against each other. And I think that has something that it kind of carried over to us, said Satou, who is two years older than Nyara. So we will never have a rivalry or a fight against each other. We want to uplift each other. And yeah, like I said, were going to shine individually, but each in their own way. But were never ... we will never battle like that.

Nyara agreed there's no sibling rivalry at all between them.

Maybe we might have played a game of horse at some point, but no, we wouldn't play 1-on-1 because it really just wasn't a thing, she said. Were both excited to share the floor, whether its with each other or against each other, because we havent done that before."
