One thing isn’t looking like the other

The second half of the season isn’t resembling the first half too much so far.Tonight’s results:

The Sun smashed the Stars, 82-51. Connecticut’s victory gave coach Anne Donovan her 200th win – the first female coach in the league to reach the mark. Danielle Adams was back for San Antonio after suspension, but didn’t play. The Stars haven’t won on the road this season.

The Sky crushed the Fever, 106-82.

The Sparks routed the Lynx, 83-61. Candace Parker lead LA with 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Jantel Lavender’s 14 points and 13 boards make her the league double-double leader, with 11. Astoundingly, the Sparks held Lynx all-star Maya Moore to 2 points in the second quarter and scoreless for the entirety of the second half. LA had 54 points in the paint to Minnesota’s 22.

The Mercury prevailed in overtime thanks to a last-second trey by DeWanna Bonner, beating the Shock 87-84.
