Storm vs Aces Game 3 Prediction: The Seattle Storm is expected to win this game against the Las Vegas Aces as per the latest prediction.

It’s the month of the final showdown in the WNBA as the battle between 4 teams will be intense in the Semifinals to qualify for the Finals and keep their title hopes alive. On Sunday, 4 September, the Seattle Storm will host the Las Vegas Aces for Game 3 of the Semifinal Round. After an exciting first two games, the series stands tied at 1-1. It was a thrilling battle between the two sides in both games. 

The Storm couldn’t extend their lead and lost the last game to the Aces. Seattle missed a complete team effort as Breanna Stewart and Tina Charles were the only two players to score in double digits. Both of them added 49 points, 16 rebounds, and 4 assists. The Storm will look to take the lead again at the Climate Pledge Arena on Sunday.

It was a brilliant comeback from the Las Vega Aces after a disappointing end to Game 1. A’ja Wilson, who looked dejected after the first game did everything to help her side level the series. Wilson secured 33 points with 13 rebounds. Kelsey Plum also gave a valuable contribution of 18 points and 3 rebounds. The Aces will look to capitalize on the momentum and secure another win to put the opposition on the back foot.
