The defending WNBA champions the Las Vegas Aces continue to roll—at the Chicago Sky's expense.

On Sept. 17, the Aces defeated the Sky 92-70 in Vegas to end Chicago's season and move into the WNBA semifinals. Las Vegas only lost one game at home during the regular season, during which they finished 34-6.

The Aces' A'ja Wilson set a playoff franchise record with 38 points in the game as the team swept the Sky in the best-of-three series, ESPN noted. She also had 16 rebounds. It was Wilson's third playoff game with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds, the most in WNBA history.

Kahleah Copper led the Sky with 25 points while Dana Evans added 22.

Chicago finished the regular season 18-22.
