Home court and rest were a winning combination for the Aces this season. They suffered just one loss at the Michelob ULTRA Arena, and five of their six total losses came after only one day of rest. Las Vegas finished the regular season with a league-best 19-1 home record while their backcourt had some significant shooting splits. Chelsea Gray shot 36.4% from three on the road and that number jumped to a team-high 46.5% at home. Kelsey Plum, who led the team with 2.4 made threes per game this season, was 37.0% from beyond the arc on the road and 41.0% at home. The Liberty's 17-3 road record was the best league-wide, so the home-court dominance of the Aces will be put to the test.
