The Los Angeles Sparks have a new coach and will be without one of their top players in Parker. While there's championship DNA on this roster, it could take time for the Sparks to get going to their full potential.The Las Vegas Aces are loaded with young talent and depth, and there should be a packed house in Vegas with the increased expectations of Cambage now on the squad. I'll lay the bucket with Las Vegas, even if I don't love it withoutCambage on the court. However, it looks like Cambage won't play in this game due to injury. Still, this is kind of a statement game for the Acesand a chance to solidify why many view them as the team to beat.

The Las Vegas Aces went from dark horse title contenders to favorites to win the title overnight with the trade for Liz Cambage. And while that gets most of the attention, we also cant forget talented guards Kayla McBride, Kelsey Plum and rookie Jackie Young, who all have the ability to take their game to new heights with more talent around them. Arguably the best post scorer in the league, the Aces added experience and an elite talent to an already very intriguing roster. Cambage and A'ja Wilson now form the best front court in the league and a tandem good enough to bring the hardware to Sin City. The Las Vegas Aces still have experience questions and were the worst three-point shooting team in the league last year with just 3.9 made per game. Still, Las Vegas has something to be excited for outside of the Golden Knights.
