You're half right.
If the original poster would have gotten a third ace he would have had AAAJ8 (Three of a kind)
However a 2nd ace on the board means that his opponent would improve to a full house: 7s full of Aces. (777AA > AAAJ8) Full house > 3 of a kind
Thus drawing dead when opponent hits a set on the turn.
