The Las Vegas Aces are hoping to repeat as WNBA Champions and the quest for back-to-back titles begins at home tonight against the Chicago Sky in a battle of the past two league champions.

Games 1 and 2 in the best of three series are in Las Vegas.

The Aces set the WNBA record for wins this season with 34. They have been dominant during this season's run and they have scored 100 points or more 11 times as well 25 double digit victories.

The Aces could be on a collision course with second-seed New York. Fans are hoping to see a battle between what most see as the two superteams.

The Aces A'ja Wilson could be on a mission after rival Breanna Stewart of the Liberty won the AP Player of the Year by a narrow margin - one vote - over last season's MVP. Wilson just won her 16th career Western Conference Player of the Week honors. She averaged 33 points, 9 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 blocks last week. She averages 23 points per game.

The biggest concern for the Aces is its lack of depth. They have struggled when they have had to go to their bench. Las Vegas really suffered when Candace Parker went down with a broken foot at the midway point of the season.

The Chicago Sky are a team that closed out the season well winning five of their last six games. They made it into the playoffs, with the late-season push, as the #8 seed. Kahleah Copper is the only starter remaining from the 2021 Sky championship squad.

The Aces-Sky game tips off tonight at 7pm at T-Mobile Arena.
