I have no idea how to proceed with this particular game. I’m Team Candace Parker forever and I believe she should coach the Bulls later on if she wants. But, I also love the fight in NY. That is wild.

Im old in basketball years – Candace Parker in the postgame to the Holly Rowe. Well, experience *dominatedtonight. Sky roll to the semis.

Parker’s performance outshined Liberty star Sabrina Ionescu, who also had 14 points but shot 2-of-7 from three-point range and had five turnovers.

Along with Parker’s big night, Kahleah Copper and Allie Quigley had 15 points apiece for Chicago. Courtney Vandersloot had 14 points and 10 assists, Emma Meesseman had 12 points and Azura Stevens also had 12 points off the bench.

Chicago advanced to the WNBA semifinals for the fourth amount of time in franchise history and awaits the winner of the Dallas Wings vs. the Connecticut Sun. The Sky are trying to end up being the first team to repeat as champion because the LA Sparks in 2001 and 2002.
