Thomas and Williams help Sun edge Aces 89-85

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Alyssa Thomas and the Connecticut Sun want to make sure they don't have to play in a single-elimination playoff game this year. They took a step in that direction with a gritty win over the Las Vegas Aces on Friday night.

Thomas scored 27 points and Courtney Williams added 24 to help the Sun rally to beat the third-place Aces 89-85. Connecticut moved into first place in the standings after Washington lost to Chicago.

"This game was huge for us, we don't want to fall past the two spot," Thomas said. "The one-and-dones aren't too good to us. It's super important for us to finish in the top two."
