UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Elena Delle Donne didn't care about her free throw streak ending or her lack of points, she was just happy her team came away with a victory.
Allie Quigley scored 19 points, including the go-ahead free throws with 15.4 seconds left, to lift the Chicago Sky to a 77-74 win over the Connecticut Sun on Thursday night.
The Sun (7-3) held Delle Donne, who leads the WNBA in scoring averaging 28.7 points, to a season-low 12 points. She also saw her streak of 58 straight free throws made come to an end in the first quarter.
"Oh well. Work on the next set of streaks or something," Delle Donne said laughing. "I'm thrilled we got a win, that's the most important thing."
Trailing by 11 points in the third quarter the Sky (6-5) rallied behind Quigley. Her 3-pointer with 2:14 left made it 73-72. After two free throws by Alyssa Thomas restored a one-point lead for the Sun with 1:58 left in the game, neither could score until Quigley's free throws.
"She was ridiculous, got ice going through her veins," Delle Donne said of Quigley. "She was so clutch."
After Alex Bentley's floater in the lane missed, Delle Donne hit two free throws with 3 seconds left to seal the victory. Bentley's wild 3 at the buzzer missed.
She finished with a career-high 25 points to lead Connecticut.
