BROOKLYN — A’ja Wilson had 30 points and 13 rebounds and the Las Vegas Aces used a late run to beat the New York Liberty 94-82.

The Aces led 80-79 with 3:59 left in the fourth quarter after New York had rallied from a 19-point first half deficit.

After a timeout, Las Vegas took over. Wilson hit a basket and then got to the line for two more points.

While she was on the foul line, Liz Cambage was called for a technical foul and New York converted the free throw.

That was the team’s only point until Betnijah Laney hit a jumper with 8.3 seconds left and the game well out of reach as Las Vegas had scored 14 of 15 to take command.
