With the New York Liberty’s loss to the Phoenix Mercury on Wednesday night, the Las Vegas Aces are officially in the playoffs.

The team currently is second in the WNBA standings at 17-7 after a loss to the Sun on Tuesday.

The Aces, averaging a league-leading 89.3 points per game, are making their third-straight playoff appearance. Last year, they went all the way to the WNBA Finals, where they were swept by the Seattle Storm in three games.

The Aces next play the Atlanta Dream on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
