Twenty-one years ago, the Los Angeles Sparks won their back-to-back championships, and the Houston Comets from 1997-2000 were the only WNBA teams to achieve consecutive championships.
Australian women’s basketball player Cayla George was able to score eleven points for the Las Vegas Aces. Cayla George made her debut due to starting point guard and center Chelsea Gray and Kiah Stokes being injured in the previous game.
The Las Vegas Aces women’s basketball team secured the win without their star starters, Chelsea Gray and Kiah Stokes. Gray and Stokes have both been currently sidelined due to injuries in the previous game.

Aces coach Becky Hammon previously shared Chelsea Gray’s injury update, stating that both Gray and Stokes will be out for the fourth game due to the severity of their injuries.
A’ja Wilson also significantly influenced the Las Vegas Aces’ historic win. Wilson shared, “It’s not easy, as you know. This is what it’s all about. Not a lot of people get to do it. To be short-handed and win is amazing. It makes the win that much better. It’s hard to get back to the Finals to win again.”
Becky Hammon herself has been breaking gender barriers in the NBA as an assistant coach before she got the role of Las Vegas Aces’ coach with a six-time WNBA All-Star title as a player.
Hammon continued, “This team has had a thousand opportunities to fall apart. You name it, we’ve gone through it this year. And all this team has done is dig in deeper with each other.” Hammon and the team are now celebrating their WNBA champion title.
