WNBA FINALS: Liberty come up short to Aces
Yo Yo Yo. ThePenguinAZ aka The Answerbacks Fan is here for a short clip on some WNBA Action.
Flipping channels between The H Town Asterix’s vs Texas Rangers game and some WNBA Championship Action. Womens (No Basketball Allowed) championship game was Doin’ It Live. Of course The Oregon Ducks women’s basketball finest and one of my many Instagram follows #20 aka Sabrina Ionescu of the NY Liberty and #30 Breanna Stewart just could not overcome the Vegas (Vegas Baby Vegas) Aces making their run for a 2nd straight WNBA championship.
The Liberty fall short and are left with every losing team motto “Maybe Next Year”. Mind you my favorite sport might be Basketball and The Fakers oh wait… The Lakers are soon starting the season, so look out for Lakers Action on the one and only Bleacher Brothers Sports Network, For Fans, By Fans.
The first game came with a win by the Las Vegas Aces ending with a score of 99-82. Now the 2nd game the New York Liberty would lose again to the tune of 104-76. Onto game 3 where it was a stay alive game for the Liberty and they would emerge with a win with a score of 87-73 to play for another day. Sabrina would be consistent in the 4 games playing plus or minus 30 mins a game, scoring under 15 points a game, averaging under 5 rebounds and 8 assists thru “FOUR” games.
For the NY Liberty, this is a heartbreaking end to such an exciting season. They had countless chances to run with this last game, but missed open shot after open shot, including half a dozen layups. B.Stewart finished a shockingly poor postseason by shooting 3-of-17 from the field. As a team, they shot 36.1% and turned the ball over 13 times.
Needless to say, The Las Vegas Aces are WNBA champions, again. Despite missing star point guard #12 Chelsea Gray and starting center #41 Kiah Stokes, the Aces fought tooth and nail on their way to a thrilling title-clinching 70-69 victory in Game 4 on Wednesday (Hump Day) night. With a 2nd time WNBA Championship, they are the first team since the 2001-2002 Los Angeles Sparks to go back-to-back. On another note, how about those LA Lakers and #23 or #6 Lebron James fair out? Stay tuned ThePenguinAZ will keep you up to the latest news on the L. James coached Lakers. Go Answerbacks Go!!!!
