Mystics blow 14-point lead but beat Silver Stars 83-73

Crystal Langhorne scored 14 points and the Washington Mystics recovered after blowing a 14-point lead to beat the San Antonio Silver Stars 83-73 on Friday night.

Ivory Latta had 12 points, Matee Ajavon added 11 and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt scored 10 for Washington (7-7), which has won three of four.

Jia Perkins scored 22 points, Shenise Johnson added 15 and Danielle Adams 14 for San Antonio (4-9). The Silver Stars have lost four of five and eight of 10.

Already without Sophia Young (knee), San Antonio was playing its first home game since losing Becky Hammon for the season to a torn left ACL and it was apparent her scoring was missed.

The Mystics' bench outscored the Silver Stars' reserves 31-22.
