SIOUX FALLS — The Skyforce are a win away from the NBA G-League championship series, and they'll go for that win on their home floor.

Fifth-seeded Sioux Falls has opened the playoffs with wins over 4th-seeded Salt Lake and top-seeded Stockton, extending their winning streak to eight games. By virtue of Rio Grande Valley's win over Memphis on Friday afternoon, the Vipers will now travel to Sioux Falls for the 1-game Western Conference finals. Tip-off is set for Sunday night at 9 p.m. at the Sanford Pentagon. The game will be televised on ESPNU.

Long Island will host Delaware in the Eastern finals, at 7 p.m. on ESPNU. The winners will then square off in a best-of-three series for the G-League title.

Sioux Falls is appearing in the playoffs for the first time since 2016. They won the league championship that season.
