It will be difficult for Las Vegas to duplicate the defensive effort it gave in Game 1 when it held Chicago to 33.3 percent shooting overall and 22.7 percent from the 3-point line while the Sky scored only 23 points in the second half. The Aces didn't shoot particularly well themselves with a .432 field goal percentage and .318 from 3-point range and both were way below their season averages. Chicago is getting huge points again even though it has covered the spread in seven of its past nine games, including a 102-91 overtime win against Connecticut in the regular season finale. Las Vegas is only 2-7 ATS its past nine games and 1-3 ATS its past four meetings with the Sky, who are 17-5 ATS against the Western Conference and the Aces are 5-11 ATS playing with at least three days rest. Grab the big points with the Sky.
