Just three teams remain and after this game, just two teams will compete in the title game. In this particular match, Las Vegas Aces will take on Phoenix Mercury in a “win or go home” scenario. More information about the LVA vs PHO Dream11 scenario will be imparted here.
Aces bounced back in the last game after a blowout win against the Mercury. Mercury and Aces have engaged in blowout games throughout the series, indicating what happens when one of the squad clicks at a high rate.
Aces received terrific contributions from guards Plum, Gray, and Williams. The three players combined 59 points whereas Gray and Plum combined for 12 assists. A’ja Wilson also bounced with a points-rebounds double-double. The team shot 48.1% compared to 41.3% by Mercury.
For the Mercury, Brittney Griner finally cooled down with a 6/19 game. Skylar Diggins-Smith was cold with a 6/17 shooting night while Taurasi shot a 5/15. Shay Peddy has been incredible this season. Turner didn’t score many points in the last game but the second All-Defensive player did get her hands on three blocks?
Phoenix and Aces need to win this game at all costs. However, it is unclear who has the advantage, maybe playing home in a decisive game will help the Aces? Fans should also look at Diana Taurasi who is dangerous in these situations.

*stats from last game*
A’ja Wilson (LVA)
A’ja bounced back in the last game after a poor 2/14 shooting game in the second match. She also led her team in boards and was active on both ends throughout the game. Wilson is known for her crispy post moves and has one of the most imposing post-games in the league. Can the Forward will her team to the Finals?
Brittney Griner (PHX)
The Aces defense held Brittney well in the last game after she came in the game as the most in-form offensive player. She shot 6/19 in the game and looked a little tired in the second half. Griner led her team in rebounds during the last game. How will she respond in Game 5?
Chelsea Gray (LVA)
Gray led her team in points during the last game. She was on fire and hit four of her seven threes, shooting 9/17 overall. The guard hit tough inside lay-ups and also made threes over defenders. Will Chelsea replicate her Game 4 heroics?
Skylar Diggins-Smith (PHX)
Diggins-Smith has been a tad inconsistent in the Playoffs but she is a vital piece for the team. In the last game, she struggled big time, shooting 6/17 and committing 5 turnovers. At any rate, she will be huge in this game.
Kelsey Plum (LVA)
Plum has been an explosive scorer so far and has scored 20 or more points in nine of the ten games. She was on fire in the last game and shot 6/11 in the last game, including 3/5 from the three-point line. Can Plum score 20 or more again?
Brianna Turner (PHX)
Turner has been phenomenal all season long but didn’t attempt many shots in the last game. She led the team in blocks and did her part on the rebounds. However, she will need to be more assertive in this must-win game.
