The Mercury are not that great of a team, but definitely have some players who could make the difference. The main issue is the Mercury players are not at the same level and while the star players are doing great, they are not getting the support that is needed from the bench and other players on the court, which is what led to the Mercury’s opening loss. The Aces, though, have been able to get a great game in the opening of the season and that will definitely help the Aces out in this game as they are not relying on any single player to lead the team. Final Score, Los Vegas Aces win 82-71.
