The Aces had eight turnovers, which turned into 10 fast break points for the Dream. Luckily, the Aces had a couple defensive stops, which stopped a potential Dream comeback.
Jackie Young had an outstanding game, as she got into rhythm very fast. Coming off of curl plays, she was hitting her mid-range shots, as well as hit a couple of deep threes. Young finished the game with 18 points, 3 assists, and 4 rebounds. One of the key factors that got the Aces the victory was their shooting. Collectively, the team shot 52.4% from the field and had five players in double figures.
With the regular season winding down and the Aces sitting in the third seed in the Western Conference being a game and a half back from Seattle, it will be interesting to see if they have enough in their tank to pull a couple more wins out and hope that Seattle drops two games to fight for the first seed.
