Aces & Sun Make Early Statements With 30-Point Blowouts to Tip Off WNBA Playoffs
Message, received. The WNBA Playoffs are underway as of last night, and two teams wasted no team making Game 1 statements on their playoff readiness. The Connecticut Sun laid the hammer on the Minnesota Lynx thanks to DeWanna Bonner’s 17-15-6 performance. The Sun shot better than 50 percent from deep (16-for-30) in an absolute sharp-shooting display. In the nightcap, the loaded Las Vegas Aces — who set the WNBA regular season record for wins (34) — blew past the Chicago Sky with five scorers in double figures.
In a 12-team league where the best players collaborate and join forces, the WNBA’s elite aren’t messing around.
