The Las Vegas Aces and Phoenix Mercury face off in their third WNBA game on Friday night inside the WNBA bubble at the IMG Academy. 

The Las Vegas Aces have looked good in the first two games of the season but they have only won a game. In the first game of this tournament the Las Vegas Aces was against the Chicago Sky and they were competitive, and that led to an 88-86 loss. In the second game of the tournament, the offense was good again for the Las Vegas Aces putting up 100 points, and the defense was good giving up 70 points.

In that last game, the Aces had five players put up at least 10 points and two players have scored at least 20 points. The Aces are led by A’ja Wilson who comes into this game averaging 21.5 points and 11 rebounds per game. Angel McCoughtry comes into this game averaging 18.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Phoenix Mercury who currently sit with an 0-2 record and they don’t want to fall to 0-3. In the first game of the season the Mercury lost to the Los Angeles Sparks 99-76. In the second game of the season the defense was once again an issue giving up 106 points to the Indiana Fever and that led to a six point loss. 

The Mercury are led by Bria Hartley who is averaging 18.5 points, five assists, and four rebounds per game. Brittney Griner and Skylar Diggins-Smith are also players who are going to be leaned on heavily this season. Coming into this season Griner is averaging 15.5 points, eight rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.  

The Mercury’s defense is going to let them down and that is going to be the issue again in this game. The Las Vegas Aces are going to run up the score against him and that will be the difference in this game. The Aces are too good of an offensive team and they will win this game and cover the spread.
