The WNBA Finals typically give the two best teams in the league a chance to show why they made it to the series. After two games in the books, the Las Vegas Aces have held up their end of the bargain by blowing out the New York Liberty in both games.
The Aces’ stellar play has left their coach in awe.
“They don’t leave me speechless very often, but they executed defensively, offensively shared it,” Aces coach Becky Hammon said. “Everything we’ve been asking them to do … they’re the real deal. Their competitiveness and their fight for each other, they’re a real team.”
The next contest occurs on Sunday, Oct. 15 in New York at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center for Game 3 at 3 p.m. ET.
