Las Vegas Ace aims to repeat the results on Friday when he visits Minnesota Links for the second time in three days on Sunday.
Friday's game was also played in Minneapolis, where Las Vegas won 91-85, resulting in a double-digit five ace score. Chelsea Gray led the ace with 21 points as Las Vegas defeated Lynx for the third time this season.
Las Vegas (15-5) is at the top of the Western Conference standings and is tied to Chicago Sky to set the highest WNBA record. Minnesota (6-15) won three of the four games before falling to Ace on Friday.
Minnesota must be sharper to prevent his fourth defeat to Ace this season.
"We weren't tough enough and in the last five minutes we were able to defend at the required level," Cheryl Reeve said after the match on Friday. "Obviously, it's a really good team. I couldn't find a way to keep them away from 90. One more crack on Sunday."
One of Friday's ace prominent ones It was Dearica Hamby who recorded 16 points and 6 rebounds. Hanby was recently nominated for an All-Star Reserve and agreed to extend a multi-year contract with Ace on Wednesday.
"She has been an important member of our core group for the last few years and her energy and hustle and bustle will be irreplaceable for our future success," Ace said. General Manager Natalie Williams said in a statement.
Both teams will head to the match on Sunday without injury. There are some glitz and situations before the game as Lynx retires Rebecca Branson's jersey. After helping Lynx win the four WNBA Championships, she retired in February 2020 and is now on the team as an assistant coach.
She became the third member of Lynx, retired from the jersey and joined Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen.
