Our Las Vegas Aces opened a three game home stand with a 92-76 loss to Atlanta on Tuesday night at Michelob Ultra Arena.

The Aces may have been a little road weary from their recently completed and successful three game road trip on which they won all three. Vegas came out a little flat in the first quarter and let Atlanta jump out to a 35-18 first quarter lead from which the Aces never really recovered.

A’ja Wilson led the Aces with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Jackie Young scored 18 points and Kelsey Plum, who just signed a two year contract extension, tallied 17.

Vegas continues its’ homestand with a game on Thursday at 7pm at Michelob Ultra Arena vs the Fever.
