Aces sweep Wings and will head to their second consecutive WNBA Finals
The quest of returning to the WNBA Finas were very near and the Las Vegas Aces could smell it. All they had to do was pull out a victory against the Wings and send them home with a dustpan and the wooden broom of a sweep.
Aja Wilson, Chelsea Gray, and Kelsey Plum have been playing lights out all season long and that was something we did not see in Game 3. Las Vegas had a shaky start to begin the game but started to rally late in the third quarter. Wilson had a very tough not but was very active defensively. Each time, the Wings looked like they were going to take control the game, Wilson would do something to spark her team offensively. Dallas made the game ugly and took Las Vegas out their comfort zone. Going into the fourth quarter the Aces' offense looked a bit tired and had 16 turnovers, which was not like the Aces.
With only a handful of minutes left in regulation, Jackie Young hit a dazzling three to cut the Wing's lead to three. Wilson followed it up a pair of free throws. Back and forth both these teams went until the Aces did what they needed to do defensively and got stops at the end of the game to sweep the Wings 64-61
