Aces 85 Wings 75: Las Vegas Aces completed a win-from-behind against the Wings courtesy of Kelsey Plum’s 26 points in the second half. The Wings jumped to a ten-point lead in the first quarter riding Arike Ogunbowale’s hot start and dominating on the offensive end. The Wings carried a nine point lead into the second half with Aces struggling to piece together substantial offensive sets.

However, in the second half, A’ja Wilson and Plum complemented their inside-outside game as Wilson made some lovely post moves while Plum sank long-range jumpers, mid-range shots, and made some tough layups. After a hot start, Ogunbowale went cold from the field and even though Allisha Gray made some inside shots, the Wings folded on both ends of the floor. Aces outscored Wings 25-12 and 24-18 in the third and quarter respectively.
