That 2022 WNBA Playoffs Begin on Wednesday, August 17th and begin a frantic run through mid-September when a champion will finally be crowned.
The top seeds are the Las Vegas Aces who dramatically revised their offensive this season after hiring new coach Becky Hammon and moving in Liz Cambage and an attempt to play a Twin Towers approach with her and A’ja Wilson. You are done First in the league by a wide margin in offensive efficiency, with Kelsey Plum, Wilson and Jackie Young all finishing in the top 12 individually.
Defending champions Chicago Sky hold the No. 2 seed, play strong defense and have incredible balance on offense. Candace Parker is still the face of this team, but they have six different players who averaged double-digit points and six who averaged at least 2.0 assists per game.
These teams aren’t the only potential contenders – 538 gives the Connecticut Sun, who topped the skies in last year’s Finals, a 31 percent chance of winning it all this season. The Seattle Storm also has a 12 percent chance of winning in Sue Bird’s final season.
