The Connecticut Sun beat Las Vegas in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals

UNCASVILLE – Natisha Hideman catches a pass from Alyssa Thomas over the arc. She paused and pumped a little fake before launching the ball.

It swiped through the net, giving the Connecticut Sun a 12-point lead over the top-ranked Las Vegas Aces.

Heidman turned to face the crowd at Mohegan Sun Arena. He folded his hands in prayer and brought them to his face before nodding ‘Goodnight’ in Las Vegas. Sun fans came back in support, waving their white rally flags in the air.

Third-seeded Connecticut beat top-seeded Las Vegas 105-76 on Thursday night to avoid extending the WNBA Finals into Game 4.

The teams will meet in Mohegan on Sunday at 4 p.m. (ESPN) and eliminations are still pending for the Suns, who are now 2-1 down to the Aces in a best-of-five series. If Game 5 is needed, the two will go back to Vegas to play Tuesday night at 9 p.m.

Playing under pressure is not new to Suraj. Connecticut thrives with its back against the wall and has gone 4–0 in elimination games so far this post season, beating Dallas 2–1 in the first round and Chicago 3–2 in the semifinals. .
