The Las Vegas Aces have won their second consecutive Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) championship.
Las Vegas defeated the New York Liberty 70-69 on the road in Game 4 of the best-of-five 2023 WNBA Championship 온라인카지노 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday (Feb. 19).
Las Vegas, which finished the championship series with a 3-1 record, was crowned champion for the second straight season.
This is only the third time in 21 years that Las Vegas has won back-to-back championships in the WNBA, which began in 1997, joining the Houston Comets, who won four in a row, and the LA Sparks, who won in 2001 and 2002.
The Lynx are the team that international center Park Ji-soo (KB) played for for three seasons: 2018, 2019, and 2021.
The Sparks led 70-64 with 1:15 left in the game before giving up five unanswered points and an offensive rebound with eight seconds left in regulation, but the defense held on for a one-point victory and the championship.
Las Vegas’ Eiza Wilson was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the championship game.
