WNBA playoffs 2022: No. 3 Sun pull away from Wings, book fourth consecutive semifinal berth

Aug 25, 2022

Connecticut rediscovered its identity and is back in the WNBA semifinals for a fourth consecutive season. The No. 3-seeded Sun ousted the No. 6 Dallas Wings, 73-58, in the deciding Game 3 held at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday night.

The game was tied at halftime after Connecticut's DeWanna Bonner nailed a late 3-pointer and Dallas had a bucket waved off after a video review. The Sun kept the defensive pressure on the Wings in the second half, keeping them to 12 points in each frame, and made enough shots to get through. It was a season low for Dallas.

Bonner led all scorers with 21 points and added five rebounds and five assists. Also for the Sun, Jonquel Jones had an 11-point, 10-rebound double-double after early foul trouble. Jones, Alyssa Thomas, Brionna Jones and Odyssey Sims had two steals each. DiJonai Carrington came off the bench for four steals, equalling the entire Dallas roster. The Sun finished with 14 steals and had 20 points off of turnovers.
