LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kayla McBride scored 28 points and the Las Vegas Aces pulled ahead of the Chicago Sky in the WNBA standings with an 84-80 win on Thursday night.

McBride's driving layup with 2:14 left made it 80-77, and the Aces (7-12) made 4 of 6 free throws down the stretch. A'ja Wilson was fouled on a putback and made 1 of 2 free throws to make it a two-possession game with 31.2 seconds left.

Las Vegas led for most of the second half and took the lead for good late in the third quarter at 69-67 on Wilson's jumper. Wilson finished with 24 points.

The Sky (6-12) went scoreless for the final 3:52 of the game. Allie Quigley had 13 points, Diamond DeShields scored 11 and Cheyenne Parker finished with 10 for Chicago.

The loss was the Sky's third in a row following a three-game winning streak.
