[ad_1]

Aces guard Riquna Williams hit two late three pointers to thwart a late comeback attempt and seal the win.

Las Vegas guard Chelsea Gray scored 20 points and six assists, while newly crowned WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson added 11 points and 14 rebounds in the game as the Aces rebounded from a 29-point loss on Thursday.

Gray was named WNBA Finals MVP. She averaged 18.3 points per game on 58% shooting in the series.

A'ja Wilson celebrates her team's win.

Sun forward Alyssa Thomas, who notched the first triple-double in WNBA Finals history in Game 3, finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists to become the first player in the league’s history to achieve the feat twice.

Becky Hammon, who was hired as the Aces head coach before the season, became the first person in WNBA history to reach the finals as a player and coach and is now the first coach to win the championship in their debut season since the league’s inaugural season in 1997.

The championship is the first for a major professional sports franchise in Las Vegas.
