As the Women’s NBA is coming to its end on the 15th, this August 12, 10 AM in Philippine Standard Time, Chicago Sky and the Las Vegas Aces are set to go head-to-head for their last matchup this season. Sky will be coming over to the Las Vegas Michelob ULTRA Arena to seal the deal with hopes of recovering from their 11-point deficit loss to the Seattle Storm. 

 

CHICAGO SKY 

Being in the most commanding position in the Eastern Conference and the WNBA as a whole, Chicago Sky won four of their last five games. Boasting a record of 25-9, 14-4 were obtained at home and 11-5 away. The Chicago team has an average of 86.2 points per game, 80.5 points against, and a field goal percentage of 48.1. Kahleah Copper leads the team’s points with 15.4 PPG, 47.7 FG%, and 76.3 FT% while Courtney Vandersloot leads assists with 6.6 APG, 2.6 TOPG, and 26.7 MPG. 

 

LAS VEGAS ACES 

So far in the season, the Las Vegas Aces stand in first place in the Western Conference, securing 24 wins and 10 losses, earning them a total of .706 points. In the last five games that they’ve played, they have been able to slightly tilt the games in their favor with three wins and two losses. There is no doubt the Aces play an impressive game with such a cohesive team and above-average players. Las Vegas Aces team leaders include Kelsey Plum who holds 19.9 points per game, Chelsey Gray with 6.1 assists per game, and A’ja Wilson with a 50.1 Field Goal Percentage. However, it is questionable on whether the impressive cohesion and players the Aces have in their pocket are enough to secure a win against the superstars that are the Chicago Sky. 

 

OUR VERDICT 

With the friction among these teams, there is reason for us to believe that the upcoming match between the two highly regarded teams will create a lot of heat. The two teams are in tip-top shape, and one is only performing slightly better than the other. However, as close as the match may come to be, this game seems to be in favor of Chicago Sky. 

 

Friday, 12 August 2022. Michelob ULTRA Arena, Las Vegas, NV.
