A'ja Wilson ties WNBA record with 53 points in Aces' win

A'ja Wilson matched the single-game WNBA scoring record of 53 points to fuel the visiting Las Vegas Aces to a 112-100 victory over the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday night.

Wilson became the third player in WNBA history to eclipse 50 points in a single game, joining Liz Cambage (53, 2018) and Riquna Williams (51, 2013).

Wilson, who also had 7 rebounds and 4 blocks, made 16 of 23 shots from the floor and 20 of 21 from the foul line. The two-time WNBA MVP eclipsed her previous career high of 40 points, set during Las Vegas' 113-89 win over the Washington Mystics on Aug.
