USA - Brunson inspires Monarchs

NEW YORK (WNBA) -
Brunson recorded six points and three boards in the opening stages for the Monarchs, who jumped out to a 15-1 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

New York pulled as close as 42-35 towards the end of the third quarter, but Sacramento's Scholanda Robinson scored all nine of her points during a 11-0 run over the next five minutes to expand the lead to 53-35 at the 6:21 mark in the final period.

Sacramento eventually held New York to 46 points, a season low for the Liberty and a season-best defensive effort for the Monarchs, who have won three straight and six of their last seven games.

Also on Tuesday, Tina Thompson scored all 17 of her points in the second half and Sancho Lyttle added 12 and eight rebounds as the Houston Comets swept to a 75-67 win over the San Antonio Silver Stars.

Hamchetou Maiga-Ba also netted 12 points for the Comets, who snapped a five-game losing streak against the Silver Stars.

Thompson shot just 4-of-12 from the field but got to the free-throw line with ease, nailing 9-of-16 foul shots for Houston, who outscored San Antonio 24-13 in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

Lauren Jackson scored 33 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the Seattle Storm recorded a 94-76 win over the Chicago Sky.

Jackson, who matched her career-high with 35 points against the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday, connected on 11-of-20 shots from the field and nine of 10 from the free throw line for her fifth 30-plus point game in 2007.

The 2003 WNBA MVP leads the league in scoring (23.4 points).

The Storm, who led by seven points after the first quarter, 14 at half-time and 19 entering the final period, shot 49 percent (31-of-63).

And Alana Beard scored 20 points to lift the Washington Mystics to a 91-75 victory over the slumping Connecticut Sun.

Beard outscored the Sun 11-2 in a span of just over two minutes in the third quarter to give Washington a commanding 61-45 lead.

Nikki Teasley also scored 12 for the Mystics, who shot seven of 15 from three-point range.
