Before the NBA opens the 2021-22 season on Tuesday, the basketball world was locked in for the 2021 WNBA Finals.
With the Chicago Sky leading the championship series 2-1 over the Phoenix Mercury, Candace Parker, Kahleah Copper and Allie Quigley had a chance to secure the trophy with a win in game four on Sunday.
Despite trailing by nine points heading into the final frame, Quigley exploded late. The Chicago guard tallied a team-high 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field with five rebounds. She scored 11 points in the fourth quarter to help charge Chicago’s comeback and win the title, 80-74.
After the Sky landed the WNBA championship banner, a member of the Golden State Warriors chimed in on Twitter. Steph Curry took to Twitter to congratulate Parker and the Sky for winning the title.
