WNBA Finals Evened Up At Two Games Apiece Following Sun Win

Jonathan Grant | October 9th, 2019

The Connecticut Sun came into Tuesday night’s match up with the Washington Mystics with their backs against the wall. 2-1 down in the series, they knew they had to win to keep up their hopes of hoisting the title. On their home floor, they made sure to stay in it, relying upon a near triple-double from Alyssa Thomas to get them a 90-86 win that sees the series squared up.

Thomas put up 17 points, had 11 assists, and grabbed eight rebounds in a dominant performance that was almost the first of its kind in the WNBA Finals. She also got a lot of help from Jonquel Jones, who added 18 points of her own to lead all scorers. Aerial Powers put up 15 to lead the Mystics in the losing effort. The title-deciding Game 5 will be on Thursday night in Washington.
