WHAT A GAME!!
Washington Mystics crush the Connecticut Sun, 102-59, at home in blowout fashion! This makes five in a row for the Mystics.
Washington had six players in double figures; three starters and three from the bench mob. From the starters, Elena Delle Donne had a game-high 19 points and 10 rebounds, followed by Ariel Atkins 15 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals. Kristi Toliver added 14 points, five assists and one steal. That’s 48 points in total.
The bench combined for 41 points: Tianna Hawkins with 12 points, Aerial Powers had 13 with four steals and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough with 11 points and six rebounds.
Here’s one of Powers’ steals with the score.
Washington cruised through their four-game road trip and came home to do damage to the Sun. Connecticut had beaten Washington twice before, but the Mystics got the last laugh with a 42-point win and take the number one spot in the league at 9-3.
The Mystics get some time off before heading back to the west coast to visit the Las Vegas Aces. In the last meeting, the Mystics won 95-72 as part of the previous four-game road trip.
