Chicago’s Courtney Vandersloot drained a 3-pointer with 38 seconds left on the clock to help seal the Sky’s 82-78 victory over the Minnesota Lynx on Saturday night.

The veteran guard notched 16 points and 11 assists, leading the Sky past the Lynx down the stretch.

Four other Sky players finished in double figures, with Emma Meesseman recording a team-high 17 points on 3-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc.

Nikolina Milic, whom the Lynx signed to a hardship contract on Friday, scored a game-high 18 points on 60 percent shooting from the field. Minnesota center Sylvia Fowles contributed 16 points and 11 rebounds in the loss.

The Sky defense was locked in, forcing 15 Minnesota turnovers and committing only five as a team.

The Sky improved to 2-1 with the win, while the Lynx fell to 0-4, matching their start from last season.
