The Sun topped the Mystics, 86-76, on a ridiculous statistical night for several players.

Jonquel Jones had 14 points and 22 rebounds to become only the second player (after Tina Charles) to grab 20 rebounds in three games in one season.

Alyssa Thomas had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Elena Delle Donne had 24 points and 16 rebounds.

Standings are tight.
