On Sunday, the Aces shot 40.9% from beyond the arc en route to a series-opening win. New York had a lead going into halftime, but Las Vegas outscored them by 20 points over the final two quarters. The Liberty must get Sabrina Ionescu more involved after she scored seven points on seven attempts, marking the only time this season that she attempted seven or fewer shots while playing at least 30 minutes. Chelsea Gray, Jackie Young, and Kelsey Plum will need to keep being assertive on the offensive end after combining for 72 of the Aces' 99 points in Game 1.
