Led by three players with double-doubles, the Las Vegas Aces erased a 13-point halftime deficit to defeat the Chicago Sky 94-87 Thursday night for their record-setting 30th victory of the season.

The Aces' 30 wins are the most in a season in WNBA history, surpassing the previous mark of 29 by the 2014 Phoenix Mercury. The Aces secured their 30th win in their 34th game, which is the number of games played by the Mercury in 2014. The Aces have six games left in the regular season.  


Jackie Young had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Chelsea Gray had 19 points and 10 assists and A'ja Wilson, who tied the WNBA record with 53 points in her previous game, had 18 points and 10 rebounds. Young surpassed 2,000 points in her career.
