The Connecticut Sun is back in the series. Alyssa Thomas had the first triple-double in WNBA Finals history to lead the Sun to victory over the Las Vegas Aces. The Sun now looks to tie the best-of-five series in the hopes of battling back to win its first championship. 

Meanwhile, Kelsey Plum and the top-seeded Aces must try to put a lackluster Game 3 behind them as they look to clinch their first WNBA title on the road in Game 4. 

Game 4 of the WNBA Finals will air this afternoon at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT) on ESPN.

Best options for streaming without cable

The games in the 2022 WNBA Finals will air on ESPN, whereas some previous games in the playoffs aired on ABC and ESPN2 as well. To catch every second on the basketball action, cord-cutters will need to subscribe to a live TV streaming service. Here's how they break down.

You can catch the WNBA playoffs with a subscription to YouTube TV, our favorite live TV streaming service. ABC, ESPN and ESPN 2 are all included in the package, which means you'll have all the channels you need in order to watch every second of the action.

Hulu Plus Live TV is a little more expensive than YouTube TV, but it also offers all the channels you need to watch the WNBA playoffs. As an added bonus, Hulu Plus Live TV comes with the rest of the Disney Bundle, which includes a subscription to Disney Plus, as well as ESPN Plus. The WNBA playoffs don't air on ESPN Plus, but the service offers a ton of other content for die-hard sports fans.

Sling TV's $35 Orange plan might be a good choice for casual WNBA fans who don't need to watch every game. This plan is one of the cheapest ways to get access to ESPN and ESPN 2.
