No thunderstorms in the Sky as they defeated the Mercury 86-50

Chicago- The Sky are one game away from winning their fist WNBA Championship.

The once wounded and undervalued Chicago team is only one game away from bringing their first championship trophy to the organization. On Friday, the Sky sent a message to the Phoenix Mercury that they will never forget. The message was pretty simple, our guards will scrap, fight, and will out work any of Phoenix's players.

Chicago's young and talented star Kahleah Copper went off. Phoenix had trouble stopping her mid-range shot and was scratching their heads trying to get in front of her in the open court. Copper has displayed a lot of emotion and heart in this series and has been one of the key factors with helping the Sky pile up victories in their quest for a championship. Candace Parker had a solid 13 points and four rebounds to cap off the night. Copper finished with 22 points.

The game itself was out of reach in the third quarter as Chicago jumped to a 28 point lead. It got to the point where the Mercury surrender the white flag at the start of the fourth and put in their reserves. Chicago went on to jump-rope to another shocking victory over the Mercury.
