LOSS

Las Vegas had a grind-it-out victory in Game 1 of the WNBA finals on Sunday, winning 67-64 while shooting 39.7 percent. Those are the fewest points the Aces have scored this season and the shooting percentage is their second-worst in a victory. Connecticut shot only 37.8 percent and scored one more point than its season low. Dearica Hamby, who hasn't played much the last few weeks due to a bruised knee came in and gave the Aces a spark in the third quarter and finished with two points, three rebounds, a steal and two assists. The Sun covered the spread for the third game in a row and expect to shoot much better in this game as they shot nearly 52 percent in their previous two games against Chicago. Alyssa Thomas led four scorers in double figures with 19 points and Connecticut has covered five of the past seven meetings and the Sun are 10-1 ATS their last 11 road games and 17-5 ATS their last 22 games overall. The Aces now are 0-7 ATS their past seven Finals games. Play the Sun.
