Keep an eye on:
Elena Delle Donne: to find her rhythm offensively. Delle Donne shot an uncharacteristic 5-18 from the field and 1-5 from deep including a 2-10 start to the game. The Aces are allowing 46 percent shooting from the field and 52 percent from deep, needless to say, Delle Donne should do what she does with little resistance.
Rebounding: is key. The Aces rank third in the WNBA in total rebounding at 41 per game and third in offensive rebounding at 12 per game. Washington are 11th in the WNBA in rebounding at 27 per game. While Washington are clearly the more talented and deeper team, they could face trouble if the Aces control the boards and ugly up the game.
