Elena Delle Donne has finally returned for her team after a thumb injury and has played in several games including the first round playoff win. Delle Donne shot 8-for-18 in that game and finished with 25 points along with 11 rebounds to lead the way. Now she'll try to make it two in a row and grab a major upset on Sunday.
