The Chicago Sky went into the fourth quarter of the deciding game against the Atlanta Dream trailing by 16. In fact, I don’t believe they ever had the lead. In the final seconds, future Mrs. Fro Dog, Elena Delle Donne, hit a shot to put the Sky ahead by one and was ultimately, the difference. Angel McCoughtry of the Dream put up a shot as time expired but the ball bounced several times around the basket before falling off the rim. Delle Donne had 34 points. This was the first playoff series win in franchise history.
The Sky take on the team that eliminated them from last year’s playoffs in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Indiana Fever on Saturday.
