BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- A'ja Wilson scored 19 points with eight rebounds and the Las Vegas Aces beat the Los Angeles Sparks 84-70 on Saturday to clinch a top-two finish and a double-bye into the playoff semifinals that comes with it.
The Aces (17-4) take on first-place Seattle (18-3) in a regular-season finale on Sunday to try and secure the No. 1 seed. The Sparks (15-7) finish third.
A 12-2 run to end the third quarter got the Sparks within four but they didn't get any closer. A McBride 3-pointer made it a 10-point game with 1:25 to go and the lead remained in double figures.
Wilson's jumper gave the Sparks the lead for good about six minutes into the first quarter. It was 43-35 at the half behind 12 points from Wilson and 10 by McBride.
