If they want to win a championship, the Las Vegas Aces will have to do the improbable…beat Seattle three games in a row. The Aces lost on Sunday 104-91 to Seattle and now trail 2-0 in the best three out of five WNBA championship finals. The Aces beat Seattle twice during the regular season but didn’t have to face the Storm’s legendary point guard Sue Bird who was injured. Bird has simply dominated the Aces in the finals. Not having Liz Cambage in the lineup has hurt Vegas as has the loss of Dearica Hamby to a knee injury. A’ja Wilson, who was named to the All-WNBA first team, has tried mightily to carry her team, but so far the Aces just can’t keep up with Seattle’s stars. Aces coach Bill Laimbeer says the team’s focus is to just win the next game. The do or die game three for Vegas is Tuesday at 4pm.
