Despite Angel Reese’s remarkable achievement of tying Candace Parker’s WNBA record with her ninth-straight double-double, the Sky struggled to contain the Aces’ potent offense. Reese’s 18 points and 11 rebounds were a testament to her skill and dedication, but couldn’t secure the win for Chicago.

The Aces’ victory was a true team effort, with Chelsea Gray contributing eight points, six rebounds, and five assists in her third game back from injury. Kiah Stokes also made a serious impact, blocking six shots as part of the Aces’ stifling defense.

Las Vegas’ superior shooting and rebounding abilities finally decided the game, with the team hitting five more 3-pointers and making nine more free throws than Chicago.

Marina Mabrey led the Sky with 21 points, but her efforts were overshadowed by the Aces’ impressive performance. Chennedy Carter added 20 points for Chicago, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Aces’ dominance.

As the Aces continue to build momentum, it’s clear that they’re a force to be reckoned with in the WNBA. With their strong team dynamic and exceptional talent, they’re poised for a successful season.
