Bonner leads Mercury past Silver Stars

PHOENIX (AP) DeWanna Bonner had 22 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots to lead Phoenix past the San Antonio Silver Stars 94-90 on Saturday night, giving the Mercury back-to-back for the first time this season.

Diana Taurasi added 25 points and four assists for Phoenix (6-19), which moved out of last place Western Conference and handed the Silver Stars (17-9) their fourth loss in five games.

Danielle Robinson converted a three-point play with 37 seconds left to cut the Mercury's lead to 88-86, but Taurasi passed to Krystal Thomas in the lane for a basket with 19 seconds remaining to help secure the win.

San Antonio's Becky Hammon was called for traveling on the subsequent possession to end any threat.

Sophia Young had a career-high 32 points and added eight rebounds for San Antonio.
