Delle Donne's First Bucket

PHOENIX (AP) -- Elena Della Donne outplayed double-dunking Brittney Griner and had the third-best rookie debut in WNBA history, scoring 22 points to lead the Chicago Sky to a 102-80 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Monday.

The No. 2 overall pick behind Griner in this year's draft, Delle Donne had 16 points by halftime as the Sky raced out to a 24-point lead. She added eight rebounds and finished only behind Candace Parker's 34-point debut for Los Angeles in 2008 and the 25 Cynthia Cooper scored for Houston in 1997.

Griner became the third WNBA player to dunk and first to do it twice in one game. She had 17 points and eight rebounds, but was limited to two points in nine minutes because of fouls as Chicago built its big first-half lead.
