Chicago Sky take down Kevin Durant and his world record


The Chicago Sky went head-to-head with Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant Sunday afternoon and won.

Chicago's WNBA team took over Soldier Field to co-host a free basketball clinic with the University of Chicago Medicine with one goal in mind -- beat 1,150.
