Mystics swept in home-and-home series with Sun
Question of the Day
Kara Lawson had 19 points, four assists and a game-high three steals for Connecticut (14-4).
Crystal Langhorne had 19 points and six rebounds for Washington (3-14) and Michelle Snow added 12 points and seven rebounds.
Jones scored her team’s first six points and shot 10-of-21 from the floor.
“I was feeling pretty good in warm-ups,” Jones said. “One of the first couple of plays we ran was for me to get the ball inside. I made the first shot, and then just kept trying to be aggressive from there.”
Jones missed eight of 12 shots in Tuesday’s 77-70 win at Washington.
“At our place, I thought we did a pretty good job on her,” Mystics coach Trudi Lacey said. “(Tonight showed) why she’s an Olympian. She really elevated her game and is tough to stop.”
Charles made seven of her 14 field goals.
“With the two of them, it makes it really tough,” Lacey said. “We went to try to slow Charles down and Asjha gets going. We try to slow Asjha down and Charles gets going. I really think that was the difference in the game.”
The Sun close the first-half of the season at the Chicago Sky on Friday.
The Mystics play at the New York Liberty that same day.
Washington trailed by 14 points early in the second half when Monique Currie got her team going. She scored five straight points to start a run, and Natalie Novosel ended it with a 3-pointer to cut the Mystics deficit to 53-49 with less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter.
Tan White came off the bench and instantly gave the Sun a spark with a 3-pointer. She added a layup to push Connecticut ahead, 62-49, with less than a minute left in the quarter.
