Big things still poppin’

Today’s results:

The Sun took care of the Fever, 84-62, on the strength of DeWanna Bonner’s 28 points.

The Sky held on to edge the Aces, 84-82, in another down-to-the-wire classic. Love it when those two teams go at it.

The Storm rolled past the Liberty, 105-64, for their ninth straight win. The box score shows what a complete team effort looks like: 53 percent shooting, 39 rebounds, 27 assists, 18 steals, everyone contributed and half of the team scored in double figures. That’s deep!

Tomorrow’s game schedule:

Dream vs. Mystics

Wings vs. Lynx
