The 2020 WNBA playoffs have arrived at the semifinal stage, and after things hit a bit of a snag on Sunday due to inconclusive COVID-19 tests for Seattle Storm players, the action resumed in full on Tuesday night. And it did not disappoint. The Las Vegas Aces evened up their series with the Connecticut Sun at 1-1 with some late heroics from MVP A'ja Wilson, while the Seattle Storm jumped out to a 1-0 lead over the Minnesota Lynx thanks to a buzzer beater by Alysha Clark. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there were all sorts of necessary changes, and this has been by far the most unique season in league history. Play didn't get started until late July, and the regular season had to be shortened to 22 games. All of those games have been played on the campus of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where the league has set up its bubble environment. So far, everyone has stayed healthy, which is great news, but there's certainly been some interesting results, and it will be interesting to see if that continues in the postseason.
