aja wilson

A’ja Wilson had a game-high 31 points and added six rebounds to lead the visiting Las Vegas Aces to a 95-83 win over the Chicago Sky on Thursday.

Wilson, who finished 10-for-19 from the floor, scored at least 30 points for the fifth time this season for Las Vegas, which has won four of five.

The Sky were paced by forward Marina Mabrey, who scored a team-high 21 points. Chennedy Carter added 20 points and star rookie Angel Reese finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds, posting her ninth straight double-double. Lindsay Allen added 10 points and five assists.

Wilson scored 15 points in the first quarter on 6-of-10 shooting, but the Sky led 25-21 heading into the second quarter thanks to 13 points from Mabrey.

The Aces (9-6) led 46-39 at the half, but the Sky (6-10) briefly took a 51-50 lead on Kamilla Cardoso’s hook shot with 6:42 left in the third quarter. The Aces answered with a 22-10 run to take control of the game over the next six minutes. Jackie Young had 12 points during that run, including a pair of 3-pointers to begin the rally.

Young finished with 22 points, shooting 7-for-13 from the floor. Kelsey Plum scored 16 of her 21 points in the fourth quarter to help the Aces stretch their lead. Plum’s 3-pointer with 6:50 to play increased Las Vegas’ cushion to 85-67, the largest lead of the night. Chicago never got closer than 10 points the rest of the way.

The Aces connected on 50 percent (33-for-66) of their shots, and hit 20 of 27 free-throw attempts. Chicago shot just 43.6 percent (34-for-78) from the floor but had only six turnovers for the game.
