Kelsey Mitchell responded with a layup, but Chennedy Carter tied it again with a running floater. Reese then scored inside to give the Sky a two-point lead, and Carter and Camilla Cardoso each hit 1 of 2 free throws to make it 88-84 with 27 seconds left.

Aliyah Boston hit a contested three-pointer with 19 seconds left, but Marina Mabrey missed two free throws. Clark secured the loose-ball rebound, but the Fever missed two shots in the closing seconds, sealing the Sky’s win.
