On Saturday afternoon, two teams sitting at the .500 mark met up in WNBA action as the Indiana Fever hosted the Connecticut Sun. Both teams were coming off recent wins, but only one could move past that .500 mark in the standings. The Sun was that team, as they captured a six-point victory behind a double-double from Jonquel Jones. Here's a look at how Connecticut was able to defeat Indiana 91-85 on their home court Saturday afternoon.

Game recap

Connecticut's Jonquel Jones was the star today for the Sun. Jones recorded an impressive double-double with a career-high of 29 points to go with 15 rebounds to lead the way.

Jones hit 11-of-13 field goals and snatched a total 10 defensive rebounds in the effort. Her teammate Jasmine Thomas finished 22 points which included going 4-for-7 from downtown. Alyssa Thomas also contributed 15 points, eight assists, and seven boards for the Connecticut win.

With just over 47 seconds left, Jasmine Thomas nailed a three-pointer to give the Sun a lead by three. However, the Fever missed three shot attempts on their next possession down the court. After several fouls down the stretch, and made free throws, the Sun were able to escape with the six-point win.

For the losing side, the Indiana Fever got 22 points from Shenise Johnson on 7-for-11 shooting to go with her six rebounds.

Candice Dupree finished with a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Erica Wheeler finished with 16 points.

The Fever shot 39.2 percent for the game and had only nine turnovers in the game, but Connecticut's first quarter and their play down the stretch was enough to get the Sun the win.
