The Chicago sky were out coached and outplayed the entire series as they fell to the Phoenix Mercury 87-82, surrendering a WNBA Finals sweep. They played well and had a chance to take the game with a 9-0 run late in the third. The Mercury were too much to handle as both Diana Taurasi and Candice Dupree scored 24 points for Phoenix and Taurasi with a 3 point play to go up three with just under 15 seconds left. Elena Delle Donne Finished with 23, Sylvia Fowles scored 20 and Allie Quigley finished with 19. This was the Chicago Sky’s first appearance in the WNBA Finals and hopefully will not be their last.

The Chicago Sky were never in the game on Sunday as they opened the WNBA Finals against Phoenix. They were down 15 – 8 after the first and it was downhill from there. Despite contributions from Fowles and Quigley , Elena Delle Donne only had 2 points in 10 minutes of action and sat out the entire second half due to back pain. The Chicago Sky scored 28 in the 4th quarter and tried to make a run but it was too late the damage was done. They were not playing good basketball and could not get into a good rhythm anytime in the first half. This series could be over if Elena Dell Donne heal up and stay out on the court to help out her team. The Chicago Sky will play game 2 of the WNBA Finals on Tuesday at 8:00 CST on ESPN.
