Sun snap Los Angeles’ win streak with big effort from Alyssa Thomas

The Connecticut Sun snapped the Los Angeles Sparks’ six-game win streak in an 83-69 win on Sunday. The Sun’s leading scorer was none other than Alyssa Thomas, who finished with her 25th double-double of the year with 17 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and two steals.

Thomas now has 282 assists this season and is 18 assists away from the single-season assist record held by Courtney Vandersloot, who had 300 in 2019. She wasn’t the only player to make some highlights in the win as DeWanna Bonner moved into sixth place all-time in scoring in WNBA history with her 12 points. She now has 6,815 points in her career.

Los Angeles was led by Azura Stevens, who tallied 17 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.

The Sun’s next game is against the Phoenix Mercury on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Mohegan Sun Arena.
