Chicago Sky Las Vegas Aces Preview How to Watch TV

It is finally time for the WNBA Commissioner’s Cup! The second annual matchup features the beloved reigning Eastern Conference champion Chicago Sky and the Las Vegas Aces from the West.

In the inaugural Commissioner’s Cup last season, the Seattle Storm defeated the Connecticut Sun, 79-57.

Tuesday’s matchup marks the third meeting between the Sky and Aces this season. The first contest took place on May 28 when the Aces took down the Sky in Chicago 83-76. The second was the infamous 28-point comeback win for the Sky on June 21.

Chicago is coming off a loss on Saturday against the New York Liberty. A rough morning of travel was most likely the cause of the Sky’s struggles against a subpar Liberty squad. Less than 24 hours before Saturday’s tip-off, the Sky defeated the Dallas Wings at home.

On the bright side, Sky guard Courtney Vandersloot is off the injured list and has recovered from the concussion that she endured on July 14 against the Sparks. During the All-Star’s four-game absence, Chicago went 3-1. The Sky beat Dallas twice and Seattle once during that stretch.

As for the Aces, they have won four of their last five games. Their only loss came against the Atlanta Dream on July 19. The Dream had their way that evening and outscored Vegas 92-76.

Tuesday night’s matchup should be nothing less than sheer entertainment as the two top teams in the WNBA face off. A healthy Sky team led by Candace Parker will face A’ja Wilson and the Las Vegas Aces. The game should feature a Finals-esque atmosphere down in South Loop.
