The Washington Mystics’ and Las Vegas Aces’ suspended game on July 5 will continue on Monday, August 5 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, home of the Vegas Golden Knights NHL team.

Washington will inbound the ball to start the third quarter and all stats for players will be retained from July 5 including fouls. Game time will recommence at 10 p.m. ET.

Washington was leading 51-36 at halftime before the game was stopped due to safety concerns of an earthquake that hit Southern California and was felt in Las Vegas, Nevada. The game was previously halted before halftime, but after finishing out the half it was best to postpone the game until further notice.

There was word that the continuation of the game would happen in the first week of August, but the league needed to decide on a definite date based on both teams’ schedules. Monday Aug. 5 seems to work for Aces, but it is a tight fit for the Mystics, who will be already on the road.

The Aces have an away game against the Dallas Wings on Saturday, Aug. 3 but will host four consecutive games starting with the Mystics at home. As for Washington, they’ll be on the road starting with the Seattle Storm on Friday, Aug. 2, followed by the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday Aug. 4 and now the Aces the following day.

The WNBA typically doesn’t have games on Mondays, so this outcome is not particularly surprising.
