The game saw back-and-forth action, with both teams exchanging leads throughout. Las Vegas got off to a quick start, but New York fought back to take control of the game. Despite a strong showing from Plum in the second quarter, the Liberty managed to regain the lead before halftime. In the third quarter, Las Vegas made a run to take the lead, but New York responded with a 14-0 scoring run to regain control heading into the final period.

It’s worth noting that New York played without starting point guard Courtney Vandersloot for the fourth consecutive game due to personal reasons. Despite her absence, the Liberty displayed resilience and depth, securing a well-deserved victory over the Aces. The win not only extends New York’s impressive record but also solidifies their position as a strong contender in the WNBA.
