The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Elena Delle Donne re­turned from a one-game ab­sence to score 25 points and lead the Wash­ing­ton Mys­tics to an 88-70 vic­tory over the In­di­ana Fever on Sun­day.

Delle Donne sat out the Mys­tics’ game on Fri­day with a groin in­jury when Wash­ing­ton suf­fered a 98-73 home loss to the Min­nesota Lynx to snap a four-game win­ning streak.

The vic­tory left the Mys­tics (7-3) a half-game ahead of the New York Lib­erty in the East­ern Con­fer­ence. Delle Donne was 9-of-15 shoot­ing, mak­ing 4 of 6 from 3-point range. Krys­tal Thomas had 14 points and 14 re­bounds with Wash­ing­ton hold­ing a 43-23 re­bound­ing edge.

Erica Wheeler, mak­ing her sec­ond start in place of in­jured Bri­ann Jan­uary (Achilles ten­don strain), scored 15 points for the Fever (4-6).
