A’ja Wilson Has A Historic Night Against The Dallas Wings

ARLINGTON, Texas -- A'ja Wilson had 36 points, 12 rebounds and 6 steals to help the Las Vegas Aces beat the Dallas Wings 95-81 on Wednesday night.

Wilson became the first player in WNBA history to have at least 35 points, 10 rebounds and 5 steals in a game. She also is the first with at least 35 points and 5 steals in multiple games.

Wednesday's outing was her 10th career game with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds, and she became the seventh WNBA player with 10 or more such games, joining Tina Charles, Breanna Stewart, Lauren Jackson, Candace Parker, Lisa Leslie and Brittney Griner.

Wilson's performance came in a physical game that left her face bloodied when she was hit multiple times while driving to the hoop, and that drew frustrations from the Aces, with coach Becky Hammon receiving a technical.

"I just take what the defense gives me and just the flow of the game," Wilson said. "My teammates really just kept me afloat."
