WNBA Finals 2022 โ€“ Game 4 Live Updates

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

10:00 Q4: It could all come down to this. The Aces, up 53-49, are 10 minutes from their first WNBA title. But anyone who discounts Connecticut hasn’t seen this team play this season.

7:01 P4: By Wanna Bonner with a HUGE triple. Connecticut still trails, but only by three (60-57).

6:25 P4: And Briona Jones makes it a one point game. He’s three three off the ground this afternoon.

1:39 P4: Riquna Williams of the Aces with two huge triples, in a row. Las Vegas leads 73-71.

0:53: AND ANOTHER OF RIQUENA WILLIAMS (embedded video below). Williams, in his second season with the Aces, is making a big impact in the closing moments of this game. She averaged just 6.7 points per game during the regular season.

0:48 4Q: Oof. Connecticut’s chances became much more difficult as By Wanna Bonner turns the ball over on a serve. 2022 WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson he just grabs the ball out of the air and makes it look easy.

0:18: The Connecticut Sun, normally so balanced, looking very frantic in these final moments. You can feel his championship hopes fading.

0:00 Q4: THE VEGAS ACES ARE THE 2022 WNBA CHAMPIONS. Final score: 78-71.

While searching through the archives the other day, I found this headline from a March 1999 issue of the Denver Post. Maybe after all these years people will finally stop underestimating becky hammond.

Halftime:

A couple of key stats to keep in mind…

Second Quarter Highlights:

7:37 Q2: And the Aces don’t let the Sun pick up momentum. 2022 WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson ago 23-15.

6:50 Q2: And Sun’s double technical foul is sanctioned Natisha Hiedeman and the aces kelsey plum. Plum fouled Hiedeman, who responded with a shove.

Connecticut Sun vs. Las Vegas Aces: what they say:

Jonquel Jones on the Connecticut Sun’s mindset heading into Game 4 of the WNBA Finals:

โ€œThe mindset is to make sure we come out aggressive. We have to have the same energy, or even better than the last game. They (the aces) will give us their best chance. They don’t want him to go to five games, and we do. Both teams are going to play some very tough basketball, very tough basketball and we have to make sure we’re affecting the game the way we need to get to a win.”

Courtney Williams on what the Connecticut Sun needs to do to win Game 4:

โ€œContain Chelsea Gray and A’ja (Wilson). I think they are the head of the snake there and we have to do everything we can to try and contain them.”

Chelsea Gray on how the Aces are feeling heading into Game 4 of the WNBA Finals:

โ€œConfident in who we are. Knowing that we will do better this time going out, on both ends, make some adjustments and get to work. And compete and try to win a title.โ€

โ€œIt’s something you dream of as a child, something you work for your whole life and I’m excited for the opportunity. We have one more game to get the job done and it starts on the defensive end for us.โ€
