The Chicago Sky is within a shot of a WNBA playoff spot, all thanks to Courtney Vandersloot’s recent stellar play.
Vandersloot led the way with 26 points and 10 assists to make it four consecutive games with at least 10+ points and 10+ assists — which is a WNBA record.
Allie Quigley had 15 points, six assists and three blocks and Cappie Pondexter scored 12 points for Chicago (10-16).
Quigley hit a 3-pointer, then had a steal and a layup to spark a 9-0 run that gave the Sky an 84-80 lead – its first since midway through the first quarter – with 2:25 to play. After Tamera Young made two free throws, Dolson converted a 3-point play to make it 87-82 about a minute later and Chicago made 4 of 4 free throws from there to seal it.
Brittney Sykes and Tiffany Hayes scored 13 points apiece for Atlanta (10-15). Elizabeth Williams had 11 points, 12 rebounds, and three blocks. The Dream has lost four in a row.
