The Las Vegas Aces are set to face the Seattle Storm in the WNBA Finals as they look to win their first championship in franchise history. While they were the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs, the Aces had to fight until the very last play of their semifinal series with the No. 7 Connecticut Sun.

Here are the performances that defined the series:

 

GAME 1: JASMINE THOMAS GOES OFF FOR A CAREER-HIGH 31 POINTS IN ONLY 3 QUARTERS AS THE SUN GO UP 1-0

 

GAME 2: A’JA WILSON SHOWS WHY SHE’S THE MVP, DROPPING 29 AS THE ACES TIE THE SERIES 1-1

 

GAME 3: ALYSSA THOMAS DROPS A DOUBLE-DOUBLE TO PUT CONNECTICUT UP 2-1, SCORING 9 POINTS IN THE FINAL 3 MINUTES TO SEAL THE WIN.

 

GAME 4: ANGEL MCCOUGHTRY STUFFS THE STAT SHEET AND DANIELLE ROBINSON DROPS A PLAYOFF CAREER HIGH 16 POINTS AS THE ACES FORCE A GAME 5

 

GAME 5: ANGEL MCCOUGHTRY AND A’JA WILSON COMBINE FOR 43 POINTS TO LEAD THE ACES IN A GAME 5 NAIL-BITER

 

BUT IT’S A DEFENSIVE STAND THAT SEALS THE WIN AND SENDS LAS VEGAS TO THE WNBA FINALS.

GAME 1 BETWEEN THE STORM AND THE ACES IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2ND AT 7:00PM ET ON ESPN2
