In Game 1 of their opening-round series against the Atlanta Dream, the Dallas Wings faced a challenging 20-point deficit but displayed remarkable resilience. However, in Game 2 on Tuesday night, the Wings encountered no such adversity. After seizing control in the middle of the second quarter, they sailed to a convincing 101-74 victory, marking their most significant playoff win in franchise history, and securing a two-game series sweep.
This triumph represents the Wings’ first playoff series victory since 2009 when they were still based in Detroit. Over the past decade-plus, they made postseason appearances just five times and managed to secure only a solitary victory. Now, they are advancing to face the defending champions and the top-seeded Las Vegas Aces in the semifinals. The highly anticipated Game 1 of this showdown is scheduled for Sunday in the scorching desert.
