Chelsea Gray lifts Aces over Storm in OT thriller


Sunday’s game between the Seattle Storm and Las Vegas Aces was everything fans hoped it would be.

The highly anticipated matchup between the top two teams in the league came down to the wire, with the Aces able to squeeze out the 95-92 win in overtime.

Chelsea Gray came up clutch for Las Vegas down the stretch, draining a jumper to put the Aces ahead with 10 seconds left on the clock. The veteran guard finished the game with 21 points and seven assists on 61.5 percent shooting from the field.

A’ja Wilson led the Aces in scoring, recording a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds.

Las Vegas was able to hold off the Storm despite Breanna Stewart dropping 35 points and 11 rebounds. The Aces forced 16 Seattle turnovers.

Sunday night’s game was the final regular-season matchup between the two teams, with the Aces winning the in-season series 2-1. The game could very well have served as a WNBA Finals preview, one year after the Storm swept the Aces to win the 2020 championship.
