The Las Vegas Aces visit the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday for the final game of the WNBA regular season for both. Vegas is 23-8 following a 103-70 victory over Chicago Sky on Friday. Las Vegas has won three straight and the Aces clinched the Western Conference regular season title and have clinched the No.2 seed in the playoff seedings behind No. 1 seed Connecticut.

A’ja Wilson is the leading scorer and rebounder for Las Vegas with averages of 18.7 points and 9.4 rebounds per game, while Liz Cambage is the second leading scorer and second-leading rebounder with averages of 14.7 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. Chelsea Gray is the leader in assists for Las Vegas with an average of 6.1 per game. Las Vegas has seven players averaging double-figures in scoring. 

Phoenix dropped to 19-12 following a 94-85 loss to the Seattle Storm on Friday. The leading scorer for Phoenix in the loss was Brittney Griner with 26 points. However, with the loss, Phoenix lost its opportunity to have a bye in the first round and is locked into the No. 5 seed of the postseason. After winning 10 straight, Phoenix has now lost two consecutive games.

Brittney Griner is the leading scorer and rebounder for Phoenix with averages of 20.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per game the second-leading scorer and leader in assists is Skylar Diggins-Smith with averages of 18.1 points and 5.2 assists per game. Diana Taurasi is the third leading scorer with an average of 15.2 points per game but set out Friday's loss to Seattle and is questionable for Sunday.

Following its loss on Friday, Phoenix is locked into the fifth spot and will not receive a bye in the first round of the postseason and therefore is likely to rest most of its stars. Diana Taurasi did not play in Friday's loss to Seattle due to a knee injury and will not play on Sunday. Las Vegas will also rest some of its players but the Aces have far more depth top to bottom than Phoenix and will pick up the victory on Sunday in the final game of the regular season for both. Final Score Prediction, Las Vegas Aces win and cover ATS 92-82
