    Mystics ease by Storm, 100-70
    June 27, 2017



    WASHINGTON (AP) Elena Delle Donne scored 25 points, Kristi Toliver made three of Washington's 10 3-pointers, and the Mystics beat the Seattle Storm 100-70 on Tuesday.


    Delle Donne was 7 of 10 from the field and hit nine straight free throws as Washington was 26 of 29 at the line.


    Washington made five 3-pointers in the first quarter and closed on a 9-0 run for a 29-12 lead. Seattle started the game making just 3 of 14 shots and the Mystics extended their lead to 56-31 at halftime.


    Toliver finished with 14 points for Washington (9-5). Tayler Hill added 14, Tierra Ruffin-Pratt had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Ivory Latta was ejected in the third quarter for two technical fouls following an offensive foul.


    Crystal Langhorne scored 15 points for Seattle (6-7) and Breanna Stewart added 11. Seattle made four of 21 3-pointers and had 23 turnovers.

    Ogwumike helps Sparks win sixth straight, beat Sun 87-79
    June 27, 2017



    UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) The Los Angeles Sparks have been playing a lot better over the last few weeks and their defense has been a big reason why.


    Nneka Ogwumike scored 17 of her 21 points in the first half to help the Sparks beat the Connecticut Sun 87-79 on Tuesday night.


    ''We're getting better defensively,'' Los Angeles coach Brian Agler said. ''At the start of the season we were one of the bottom two teams. I'm not sure where we are now, but we're better than that.''


    Candace Parker added 14 points, seven rebounds and five blocks for the Sparks (10-3), who have won six straight.


    ''There are some things we got to tidy up, putting teams away,'' Parker said. ''That's been our Achilles' heel this year. To beat a good Connecticut team on the road is huge.''


    Parker didn't want to compare the success that the Sparks had last season, winning the title to what they've done this year. She'd rather focus on just getting better every game.


    ''It's completely different years. Last year was historical. It's hard to match that,'' she said. ''We're just trying to stay in this game and figure out what works this year.''


    Los Angeles led by six at the half thanks to Ogwumike, who made her first eight shots. The Sparks scored 16 of the first 20 points in the second half to open up a double-digit lead. Riquna Williams, who is filling in for injured guard Essence Carson, spearheaded that burst and finished the game with 13 points.


    The Sun (6-7) were down by 19 and got to 68-61 early in the fourth, but could get no closer as Los Angeles scored the next eight points.


    Jasmine Thomas led Connecticut with 19 points. Jonquel Jones added 13 points and 17 rebounds.


    Ogwumike scored 13 points in the first quarter as Los Angeles jumped out to a 10-point lead. The Sun trimmed their deficit to six behind the strong play of Thomas and Courtney Williams, who combined for 16 points in the opening half.


    ''We talked as a staff about how important the first quarter was going to be,'' Connecticut coach Curt Miller said. ''It was that way for confidence, but also for a little momentum, to feel good about playing them. We had a difficult first quarter. We can't get that one back.''


    RED CARPET


    Parker took part in the inaugural NBA Awards show on Monday night in New York. She presented an award for best teammate.


    ''It was amazing,'' Parker said. ''I had a great time surrounded by greatness inspired me to come back and work. Russell Westbrook, what he did was unbelievable. He was an inspiration to everybody.''


    TIP-INS


    Sparks: Ogwumike set the WNBA record when she went 12 for 12 last season from the field in a game against Dallas. She finished 9 for 13 against the Sun. ... Carson injured her groin against Phoenix and may join the team in Atlanta according to coach Brian Agler.


    Sun: F Lynetta Kizer suited up for the first time since injuring her back in practice in early June. Kizer missed five games. She played 3 minutes and had two points.


    UP NEXT:


    Sparks: Finish off a three-game road trip by visiting Atlanta on Friday.


    Sun: Host Seattle on Thursday.

    Fever looks for repeat at Sky


    The Indiana Fever return to the site of their only road win of the season on Wednesday.


    They'll look to make it two straight victories away from home over the Chicago Sky in an 11:30 a.m. CT matchup at Allstate Arena.


    The Fever's first win -- a 91-79 decision over the Sky on June 18 -- came as Tiffany Mitchell and Candice Dupree combined for 30 second-half points. Dupree closed with a team-high 18.


    "Just a nice effort, especially in the second half when I felt like Chicago was comfortable," Fever coach Pokey Chatman said. "It was nice after halftime to regroup. We kept going to the huddle and knew we were getting good shots. We made them a little bit uncomfortable."


    Indiana (6-7) is coming off an 84-73 home loss to the Los Angeles Sparks on a night when the team honored retired star Tamika Catchings by retiring her number.


    Dupree topped the Fever with 14 points and four players scored in double figures. But Indiana couldn't contain Los Angeles' production in the second and third quarters that put the Sparks in control.


    Indiana has won three of its last five. Chicago (3-10) has lost eight of its last 10 and remains winless in six games at home.


    The Sky are coming off a 97-63 loss to Washington during which the host Mystics used a 31-7 second quarter to take a commanding lead and never looked back.


    Three Chicago players scored in double figures in that game, led by Allie Quigley's 18 points. Quigley tops the team with 16.6 points per game and has scored in double figures each time out.


    Sky coach Amber Stock still remains optimistic about Chicago's prospects as the rest of the season unfolds.


    "Our man defensive principles are solid, we just need better execution," Stock said after the Washington loss. "Our offensive principles are solid, we just need more consistent execution. So big picture, if you look at the overall output of the hard work that these ladies are putting in, I feel really good about the games that lie ahead."


    Chicago travels to winless San Antonio on Friday and then is idle until a July 8 home date with Minnesota.


    Indiana is at Connecticut on Saturday and then is off until July 7 at Atlanta.
