The GIST: The Las Vegas Aces are just one win away from locking in a WNBA Finals position, while the other best-of-five semi is all tied up at one game apiece after last night’s Game 2s. Ball or fall, baby.

No. 2 NY Liberty takes Game 2 against No. 3 Connecticut Sun: Betnijah Laney steadied the Big Apple ship last night, leading her team to an 84–77 win over the Sun with a 20-point performance, as the recently-crowned MVP Stewart contributed a solid 11-point, 11-rebound double-double.

  • The dub evens up the series as the Northeast showdown heads to Connecticut for Friday’s Game 3.

No. 1 Las Vegas Aces take 2-0 series lead over No. 4 Dallas Wings: Though the Wings put up a fight, their grit was no match for the aforementioned Wilson last night. The Defensive Player of the Year put on an offensive clinic in the Aces’ 91–84 win, becoming the first player in league history to score 30 or more points in three straight playoff games.

  • Up next, walking bucket Wilson and her Vegas squad are back in action on Friday, brooms packed, as Dallas does their best to avoid the sweep at home.
