CHICAGO (AP) — DeWanna Bonner scored 19 points, DiJonai Carrington and Brionna Jones each scored 16 and the Connecticut Sun beat the Chicago Sky 86-82 on Saturday night.

Tyasha Harris scored 15 points for the Sun (5-0) who remain the only unbeaten team in the WNBA.

Connecticut’s Alyssa Thomas was ejected for a flagrant foul after appearing to wrap at least one hand around the neck of Chicago rookie Angel Reese on a play in the third quarter. Reese made the two foul shots with 3:41 left in the period to give Chicago a 60-59 lead. Carrington countered with a driving layup 38 seconds later.

Bonner’s 3-pointer with 7:03 remaining made it 78-71 before Chicago went on an 8-0 run and Dana Evans’ 3-pointer with 5:03 left gave the Sky their last lead at 79-78.

Bonner followed with a three-point play and a mid-range jumper and Connecticut led the rest of the way.

Marina Mabrey scored 23 points for Chicago (2-2) while Evans and Reese had 13 points each.
