BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — A'ja Wilson and Dearica Hamby each scored 23 points and the Las Vegas Aces secured the top seed to the playoffs seed with an 86-84 win over the Seattle Storm.

Each team finished at 18-4 but the Aces won both regular season contests against the Storm. 

Both squads entered Sunday's season finale having secured double-byes into the semifinals. 

Seattle played without forward Breanna Stewart and point guard Sue Bird who were held out due to injury.
