WASHINGTON (AP) Krystal Thomas had 20 points and 14 rebounds as the Washington Mystics beat the Indiana Fever 100-80 on Saturday in a WNBA game that was delayed 48 minutes to start the second half because of water on the court.
The Mystics (16-10) were up by 13 at the half when the game was delayed because of a leak in the Verizon Center roof. The teams entertained themselves and the fans during part of the delay by having a dance contest.
Candice Dupree led Indiana with 26 points. The Fever (9-19) were missing guards Briann January and Tiffany Mitchell, who were both out with knee injuries.
Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd scored 20 points apiece as the Seattle Storm beat the Phoenix Mercury 98-89 in their first game since Gary Kloppenburg took over as interim coach.
Crystal Langhorne had 19 points, six rebounds and a career high-tying five assists, helping Seattle (11-16) end a four game losing streak.
Diana Taurasi led Phoenix (14-13) with 20 points while Brittney Griner, who had missed the last eight games with knee and ankle injuries, scored 19.
Isabelle Harrison scored 23 points as the San Antonio Stars beat Atlanta, handing the Dream their seventh straight loss.
Kayla McBride and Moriah Jefferson added 14 points apiece and Kelsey Plum had 10 as the Stars (7-22) won for the fourth time in five games after starting the season 0-14.
Alyssa Thomas had 21 points and a career-high 13 rebounds while Jonquel Jones added 19 points, 16 boards and five blocked shots to help the Connecticut Sun beat the Dallas Wings 96-88.
Courtney Williams also scored 19 points for Connecticut (17-9), which will be headed to the playoffs for the first time since 2012 after Atlanta's loss to the Stars.
