LAS VEGAS (September 9, 2023)—Las Vegas closes out the 2023 WNBA regular season, Sunday afternoon, with the number one seed in the playoffs still in its collective sights. The game against the Phoenix Mercury is being played at T-Mobile Arena, and more than 15,000 tickets have already been sold as of Saturday afternoon. That guarantees that the team will establish a Las Vegas-era, franchise record for single game attendance, and that the Aces will lead the WNBA in attendance for the first time in franchise history. Tip on ESPN2 is slated for 12 pm PT.
Tickets to the season finale may be purchased via AXS.com.
Las Vegas controls its own destiny tomorrow as a win over the Mercury (9-30) would improve the Aces’ record to 34-6. That would lock them into the top spot in the standings ahead of second place New York (32-7) regardless of the outcome of the Liberty’s game Sunday against the Washington Mystics which tips at 10 am PT on NBA TV. A New York loss would also clinch the top spot in the playoffs for Las Vegas.
Depending on where they finish, the Aces will host either the 7th or 8th seed in the First Round of the 2023 WNBA Playoffs beginning Wednesday, September 13 at 7 pm PT on ESPN2. The First Round is a best-two-out-of-three series which sees the higher seed host Games One and Two. Game One of the Aces series will be played at T-Mobile Arena. Game Two is slated for Sunday, September 17, at 12 pm PT on ABC, and will be played at Michelob ULTRA Arena.
