Led by Becky Hammon in her first year as a Head Coach with the WNBA, the Las Vegas Aces fought a valiant battle in the final games of the WNBA Finals against the Connecticut Sun. The team left Las Vegas earlier this week after defeating the Sun in game 2 and headed to play out the series in Connecticut at the Mohegan Sun Arena. After a stunning loss to the Sun in game 3 with a final score of 105-76, the Aces regrouped and focused their effort on Game 4 and clinching the title before having to come back to Vegas to possibly play a game five on Tuesday in their home arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
