Commissioner’s Cup Final

Both Chicago and Las Vegas went 9-1 in these games to earn the right to battle in Tuesday’s Commissioner’s Cup final.

More than bragging rights are up for grabs. Each member of the winning team pockets $30,000. Players on the losing side go home with an extra $10,000. As well, the game MVP picks up another $5,000.

The Sky Is the Limit

A year ago when they entered postseason play with a 16-16 regular-season mark, no one was touting the Sky as WNBA title contenders. Yet at the end of the playoffs, Chicago was the team holding the championship trophy aloft.

Fast forward a year and almost everyone is touting the Sky as the team to beat in the WNBA. Four Chicago players – Candace Parker, Courtney Vandersloot, Kahleah Copper and Emma Meesseman – were selected to play in the midseason WNBA All-Star Game.

Chicago has already clinched a playoff spot. The Sky list three players among their starting five – Copper (2021), Meesseman (2019) and Parker (2016) – who’ve been named WNBA Finals MVP.

Aces Can Score the Basketball

Las Vegas is the most productive team in the WNBA. The Aces top the league in both points per game (90.4) and offensive rating (108.3).

Three Las Vegas players – Kelsey Plum (20.1 points per game), A’jaWilson (19.4) and Jackie Young (16.3) – are all ranking in the top 10 in WNBA scoring.

Depth Is Chicago’s Ace

Chicago is the #2 scoring offense in the league at 85.6 PPG. Seven Sky players are averaging between 14.8 and 9.0 PPG. Parker has recorded two triple-doubles this season.

We’re beginning to run out of adjectives to describe just how truly historic @Candace_Parker is 🤷🏾‍♂️

Moving up on All-Time lists is just simply light work for her at this rate. pic.twitter.com/uPIvikSb5O

— Chicago Sky (@chicagosky) July 25, 2022

It’s that depth of scoring which tends to be the difference maker for Chicago. The last six games saw the Sky going 5-1 even though all-star guard Vandersloot (concussion) was missing the past four games. She practiced Monday but her status for Tuesday remains uncertain.

Chicago is the WNBA’s #5 team in defensive rating (98.0), just ahead of the #6 Aces (101.3).

Aces vs Sky Prediction

Las Vegas was 13-2 on the season when the Aces blew a 28-point lead in that June 21 home-court loss to Chicago. That was the biggest comeback in WNBA history.

After that game, the Aces went 2-5 up to the all-star break. Like the Sky, they’re 5-1 over the past six games.

Chicago is the deeper team and the better defensive squad. And the Sky are at home. Take Chicago and lay the two points.

Pick: Chicago Sky -2 (-110)
