The Aces (7-0): A’ja Wilson scored 23 and Jackie Young added 22 points during the first meeting between the 2022 WNBA finalists Tuesday as the Aces won 90-84. They are the only undefeated team left in the league. The Aces can tie the longest winning streak in franchise history Thursday, having won their past 11 regular-season games dating back to the 2022 campaign. The franchise record is 12 consecutive wins set by the San Antonio Silver Stars during the 2012 season.

The Sun (6-2): Reserve guard Rebecca Allen led the Sun in scoring Tuesday with 22 points. She scored 14 in the fourth quarter and made more 3s by herself (6) than the entire Aces team (4). Reigning sixth player of the year Brionna Jones added 15 points, and 2022 second-team All-WNBA forward Alyssa Thomas had 14. But the Aces held Connecticut’s leading scorer DeWanna Bonner to just five points.
