August 22

Aces 82, Storm 74

Las Vegas broke the game open in the second quarter while outscoring Seattle 26-11 and taking a 45-29 lead into halftime. The Aces stretched their lead to 21 points (56-35) midway in the third before the Storm rallied in the fourth to make it close at the end. Breanna Stewart tallied 29 points and 18 rebounds — both game highs — while A’ja Wilson finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds for Las Vegas.

September 13

Aces 86, Storm 84

Seattle led 79-74, but was outscored 12-5 in the final five minutes to lose the regular-season finale and the No. 1 seed. Sue Bird (knee) missed her second straight game against the Aces and Stewart sat out due to a foot injury. Jewell Loyd rebounded from a season-low three points in her last outing against Las Vegas and scored 30 points. However, the Aces received 23 points each from Wilson and backup guard Dearica Hamby.
