San Antonio Blows Out Shock

Posted: Updated:
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -

Jia Perkins scored 21 points and Danielle Adams added 18 to lead the Silver Stars to a 91-71 victory over the Tulsa Shock on Saturday night.

Sophia Young added 15 points and Becky Hammon 13 for San Antonio (17-6).

Riquna Williams led Tulsa (4-19) with 17 points and Ivory Latta added 15. They were the only two players in double figures.

Two days after having their 12-game winning streak snapped by the Sparks in Los Angeles, San Antonio extended its home winning streak to nine. The Silver Stars only loss at home came in their opener May 30 against Chicago.

San Antonio outscored Tulsa 47-25 in the second and third quarters in securing its ninth straight victory over the Shock.

Tulsa took its largest lead at 15-12 in the first on Latta's free throw to complete a four-point play. Latta was fouled on a 3-pointer by Robinson, although replays showed no contact.

Williams scored seven of Tulsa's final 10 points in the first quarter after entering with 4 minutes left. She hit a 3-pointer and sprinted for two layups, including one with 4 seconds left to pull within 27-25 after the first quarter.

The Silver Stars turned the tables to open the second quarter, using their speed to sprint by and around the Shock for an 11-2 run.

Perkins' free throw completed a three-point play after she was fouled on a layup. The play gave San Antonio a 36-27 lead and prompted a timeout by Shock coach Gary Kloppenburg.

The break did little to slow San Antonio. Adams scored San Antonio's next eight points following the timeout.

The Silver Stars extended their lead to as many as 23 points in the third quarter. They made four 3-pointers and outrebounded Tulsa 20-7 in the third.

Perkins' 3-pointer gave San Antonio a 70-50 lead with 2 minutes left in the third.
