Chicago Sky Look to Set Single Season Win Mark

A Chicago win on Sunday will make franchise history. Friday’s 93-83 verdict over the Mystics was Chicago’s 24th of the season. That ties the club mark for wins in a single season, previously accomplished by the 2013 squad.

Chicago maintains a two-game lead over the Las Vegas Aces for the top seed in the WNBA playoffs. The Sky and Aces are scheduled to clash on Thursday.

Kayleah Copper paces the Chicago offense. He scored a team-high 19 points in Friday’s win. This is the third game in a row in which she was Sky’s top scorer. Copper scored 27 points in the recent win over Connecticut.

The win over the Mystics, however, was all about balance on offense. Allie Quigley added 18 points, Rebekah Gardner and Azura Stevens each added 11 points, Emma Meesseman and Courtney Vandersloot scored 10 points each, and Candace Parker contributed nine points. Stevens also pulled down six rebounds and made five blocks.

In the OT loss against Chicago on July 31, Courtney Williams missed a potential game-winning jump shot with 3.7 seconds left in regulation. The Sun scored 26 points off the Sky’s 20 turnovers and outscored the Sky 21-4 in second-chance points.

Prediction Sun vs Sky

Connecticut is 6-1 straight up in the last seven games. The only loss was to Chicago. The Sun have won four straight on the road since back-to-back losses to the Sky and Dallas Wings.

Connecticut still has a realistic shot at a top seed. There are still games against Chicago and Las Vegas both on the Sun’s slate for the remaining four games of the regular season.
