WNBA Leading Las Vegas Ace spent a long four days thinking about the historic collapse to Chicago Sky before hosting Washington Mystics on Saturday to get a chance to redeem. ..
Las Vegas led 28 with a 104-95 defeat to Chicago, making it the biggest comeback defeat in WNBA history. Ace dropped 41 points on the franchise record in the first quarter and shot 63% off the field in the opening frame.
But when Sky took the lead with a 59-25 run in the second half of the third quarter, everything collapsed and they didn't give up. Current league champion Chicago ran 18-0 in the third quarter to boost the comeback.
Ace (13-3) leads the Western Conference in 2 1/2 games, but these types of losses can change the team's entire season. There is sex.
Las Vegas Head Coach Becky Hamon is convinced that intolerable losses will have a positive impact on the advancement of the league's major teams.
"This should hurt," Hamon said. "They (players) should lose sleep on it. I know they lose sleep with it. But in the end, these things happen ... good results for us in the long run.
The next schedule is Washington (11-9), where I lost two and three of the last four. Since the start of Season 5-1 Mystics has lost 8 out of 14 and is trying to turn the ship around again.
In the last time-out, Washington suffered an 85-71 defeat to Storm and was dominated by Seattle. Mystics dragged only two points in the fourth quarter, but Seattle ended the game with a 16-4 run to ensure a win.
Elena Delle Donne scored the team's best 20 points in 29 minutes at Mystics. She leads the team with an average score of 15.3 this season.
