A dominant Liz Cambage has kept her Las Vegas Aces alive in the WNBA playoffs and then mocked rivals on the top-seeded Washington Mystics.

The Aces beat the Mystics 92-75 in Las Vegas on Sunday with Cambage scoring a season-tying high 28 points.

The Mystics were unable to guard the Australian All-Star who connected on 12 of 15 field-goal attempts.

The Mystics lead the best-of-five series 2-1 and can wrap it up with a win in game four in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

In a post-game interview, the outspoken Cambage let loose on Mystics players LaToya Sanders, Ariel Atkins and Ella Delle Donne.

“They’ve got small forwards guarding me,” Cambage said.

If they can’t handle it get in the weight room or get out of the post.

“That’s what I’m doing. I’m doing my thing inside.”

Cambage also collected six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in a dominant performance.

A game five, if necessary, will be in Washington DC.

Cambage is confident the Aces can win the next two to move on to the WNBA Finals.

“We have another two games to go,” Cambage said. “I think we can do this.

“We have to come out and win another and then take it back to Washington.”

The Mystics were led by two-time WNBA MVP Delle Donne’s 22 points.
