The 2023 WNBA playoffs continued on Friday night with a semifinals doubleheader. In the first game, the visiting New York Liberty finally looked like themselves in a 92-81 win over the Connecticut Sun. Breanna Stewart led the way with 25 points and 11 rebounds as the Liberty regained homecourt advantage and took a 2-1 series lead. 

In the second game, the defending champion Las Vegas Aces secured their ticket back to the WNBA Finals by completing a sweep of the Dallas Wings with a 64-61 win on the road. It was an ugly, low-scoring affair, and the Aces trailed by eight in the fourth quarter, but they were able to come back thanks to their defense, which held the Wings scoreless for the final five minutes

The WNBA Finals will also be best-of-five series with a 2-2-1 format. Las Vegas will host Games 1 and 2 and, if necessary, Game 5
