The Dallas Wings ousted the Indiana Fever tonight in an 89-62 rout. Coming off of a game that Head Coach Fred Williams said “builds a lot of character” the Wings really needed this one.
No one needed it more than veteran wing1 Karima Christmas-Kelly who posted a career-best 27 points. In the previous game against the Phoenix Mercury, Christmas-Kelly left with a shoulder injury and did not return.
Her toughness became a spark for the entire team as she sliced through the lane that was open more times than not. The young-Wings2 had some bright moments as well starting with #4 overall pick Alisha Gray. Gray scored 14 points, grabbed 9 rebounds, and led the team with a +26 plus/minus. The unsung hero was Kayla Thornton who accumulated 12 points, 7 boards, and every loose ball in sight. When asked about Thornton’s impact and try out Coach Williams said: “when [Thornton] slapped the glass on right and left handed layups, alright, that’s all I need to see.” Her athleticism, hustle, and wingspan mirror what Dorian Finney-Smith gave the Mavericks this season.
Defensively the Wings held the Fever to just 22 made field goals and only one player scored in double digits (Natalie Achonwa, 13). Overall the Dallas Wings improved to a 3-2 record and face the New York Liberty this Friday, June 2nd in Madison Square Garden.
