Krystal Thomas added 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting, and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt had 11 rebounds to pass the 550 mark for her career.

Washington started fast in the first half to put the Fever away early. Krystal Thomas made a layup for the first points of the game, then hit a 3-pointer to cap a 13-4 opening run. Washington led 26-11 after one and 50-28 at the half.

Briann January scored 15 points to lead the Fever (7-11). They have lost four straight overall and four in a row at home.
