Plum, Young lift Aces over Mercury 84-83


PHOENIX (AP) — Kelsey Plum scored 23 points, Jackie Young scored on a putback with 4.3 seconds left and  Ji-Su Park blocked a final shot as the Las Vegas Aces defeated the Phoenix Mercury 84-83 in a regular-season finale. Plum scored 13 straight Las Vegas points, and the last seven in the game to pull the Aces within 83-82 with just less than a minute to play. After a Phoenix miss, Plum missed a shot for the lead but Destiny Slocum hustled the offensive rebound. Plum drove again and her shot rimmed out, leaving a wide-open Young to put in the winner. Skylar Diggins-Smith led the way with 17 points.
