WNBA: Chicago Sky Are Comeback Queens

The Las Vegas Aces and the Chicago Sky probably didn’t need to add any storylines to their Commissioners Cup preview on Tuesday night, but fans got a whole new chapter in the growing rivalry.

More Details

The Sky completed a 28-point comeback, the largest in WNBA history, to win the game 104-95.
In the first quarter, it was all Las Vegas.

The Aces broke their franchise record for points in a single quarter to start the game, jumping all over the Sky 41-18.

Las Vegas shot 63.6 percent in the first ten minutes, and was 7 of 11 from behind the arc, including rookie guard Aisha Sheppard’s buzzer-beater from the right-wing.


However, as Aces head coach Becky Hammon put it after the game, “That first quarter was one of the most brilliant quarters I’ve ever seen. And after that, they kicked our a—-s.”

Chicago went on to outscore Las Vegas 86-54 in the next three quarters and overtook the lead before making its first free throw attempt.

Five Chicago players finished the game with over 13 points, led by Courtney Vandersloot with 25 points and eight assists.

As a team, the Sky ended the game with 34 assists, just one off the WNBA record.


Championships aren’t won in June, but this particular matchup is one of the best in the league.
