Kelsey Plum hits 1,000 career points in Aces’ win over Dream


Kelsey Plum dazzled in the Aces’ franchise-high 118-95 win over the Atlanta Dream on Saturday night.

The Las Vegas guard came off the bench and dropped 23 points, surpassing the 1,000 career-points threshold. Plum shot a staggering 66.7 percent from the field and was five for eight from beyond the arc.

“I just feel super blessed, I feel super fortunate to be with a franchise that is about winning,” said Plum during her post-game interview.

Six Aces players put up double-digits against Atlanta, including Dearica Hamby, who recorded 18 points and ten rebounds, and Liz Cambage, who dropped 17 points and ten rebounds.

Odyssey Sims had a historic night for the Dream as well, setting a WNBA record for the most assists by a player who came off the bench with 13.

Next up: Atlanta will travel to Connecticut to take on the Sun on Friday. The Aces will next host the Mercury on Wednesday.
