The dynamic duo of Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart proved to be too much to handle for the Las Vegas Aces.  

 

The two All-Stars were major contributors, who helped the Seattle Storm complete their sweep of the Las Vegas Aces in the WNBA Finals.

 

The Storm beat the   92-59 to win their fourth WNBA Championship in three years.

 

Stewart sat the bench most of the first half due to foul trouble but still was able to produce an impressive second half finishing with 26 points and four rebounds for the Storm.

 

The 33 point victory for the Storm was the largest margin of victory for a team in WNBA Finals history.

 

The Aces came out focused, scoring the first seven points of the game, but the Storm went on an 11-2 run to end the first quarter leading 23-21. Seattle scored the first six points to begin the second quarter and built a 43-34 halftime lead. 

 

The Aces continued to bury themselves by turnovers, as they began the second half with back-to-back turnovers by McBride and Wilson.The Aces had 18 total turnovers for the game. The Storm pulled away in the quarter outscoring the Aces 32-14.

 

League MVP A’ja Wilson tried to keep the Aces in the battle. She finished with 18 points, six rebounds, four assists and several key blocks. Jackie Young added 11 points for the Aces.

 

Overall, the Aces had an amazing season despite missing Liz Cambage and Kelsey Plum. The Aces finished with the best record in the regular season and, with the return of Wilson, McCoughtry, Cambage and Plum they could possibly be the top team in the league next year also.

 

Although it wasn’t the outcome Aces players and fans wanted, the city of Las Vegas is very proud of the Aces and their outstanding efforts this season.

 

Go Aces!
