Delle Donne, Lynx down Sky in OT
Rosemont, IL – Elena Delle Donne forced overtime with a late 3-pointer and scored 32 points in the Chicago Sky's 94-86 win over the Minnesota Lynx.
Sylvia Fowles had six of her 31 points in the extra session for Chicago, which has won eight of its last 11 games.
Fowles sunk all 11 of her free throws and Delle Donne was 10-of-10 from the charity stripe for the Sky, who were 31-of-33 from the line.
Seimone Augustus netted 26 points for the Lynx, who have dropped back-to-back tilts on the heels of a 10-game winning streak.
Delle Donne nailed her triple with 4.5 ticks remaining in regulation to deadlock the contest at 79-all and a Fowles layup preceded a Delle Donne layin and two made free throws to put the Sky in front, 85-79, with 3:07 in overtime.
An Augustus jumper got Minnesota within 85-83 with 1:35 left, but four straight pounts by Fowles put the game away.
Minnesota had a slim 41-40 edge at the break.
