Allie Quigley came off the bench to score a team-high 23 points Tuesday night as the Chicago Sky used a fast start to dump the turnover-prone Minnesota Lynx 105-89 in Minneapolis.
Quigley was 8 of 12 from the field and 3 of 3 from the 3-point line as Chicago (5-7) won its third straight game. The Sky carved up Minnesota's defense, canning 57.1 percent from the field and sinking 12 of 26 on 3-point attempts.
Chicago also got 17 points from Stefanie Dolson, 16 each from Diamond DeShields and Kahleah Copper, and 12 from Candace Parker. Courtney Vandersloot added 10 points and 13 assists for the Sky, which drew 32 assists on 40 made buckets and also forced 20 turnovers.
Napheesa Collier tied a career high by pumping in 27 points for the Lynx (4-6) and Sylvia Fowles scored 14, but it wasn't nearly enough for them to keep up with an opponent they couldn't stop.
Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve pulled Fowles and most of her starting lineup early in the fourth quarter after Quigley drained a 3-pointer to make it 87-63.
Chicago wasted no time setting the tone. It scored on eight of its first nine possessions, opening up a 20-11 lead on Dolson's layup less than 4 1/2 minutes into the first quarter. Dana Evans canned a 3-pointer with 3.0 seconds remaining to make it 39-23 Sky after 10 minutes.
Minnesota fought back in the second quarter, closing within 47-45 when Collier tipped in her miss to give her 23 points in the half. But Chicago regained control with an 11-4 run to close the half, upping the margin to nine at intermission.
Any hopes the Lynx had to rally in the second half were extinguished when the Sky pulled away midway through the third quarter. Quigley sank consecutive 3-pointers to help them open up an 82-63 advantage going to the fourth period.
