WNBA Playoffs: Aces sweep series vs Mercury

Chelsea Gray had 27 points and eight assists and the Las Vegas Aces beat the Phoenix Mercury 117-80 to sweep the first-round playoff series (2-0). Gray hit a career high seven threes and the Aces registered a WNBA record 23 for the game.

Las Vegas, which never trailed, also set WNBA playoff marks for consecutive field goals made to open a game (10) and most 3-pointers in a half (11, in the first). The top-seeded Aces beat Phoenix 79-63 on Wednesday.

Las Vegas will play the fourth-seeded Seattle Storm or the fifth-seeded Washington Mystics in the best-of-five semifinals. Kelsey Plum added 22 points for Las Vegas, while Kaela Davis led short-handed Phoenix with 23 points.

Phoenix was without Diana Taurasi, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Brittney Griner. Taurasi was out with a quadriceps strain, Diggins-Smith stepped away last week for personal reasons, and Griner is being detained in Russia.
