PHOENIX (AP) Odyssey Sims scored 10 of her 18 points in the third overtime, helping the Dallas Wings beat the Phoenix Mercury 117-111 Saturday night in the first game between Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson since their acrimonious divorce.

Skylar Diggins scored 19 points of her 27 points after halftime to lead Dallas back from a 17-point deficit.

DeWanna Bonner had 38 points and Penny Taylor added 21 for the Mercury, who were short-handed in the third overtime after four players fouled out.

Griner and Johnson were not much of a factor until late, when Johnson scored on a putback over Griner to tie the game with 10 seconds left in regulation. The two also got tangled in the third quarter, when Griner was called for a foul and Johnson was hit with a technical foul for pulling her down.


Griner finished with 11 points and nine rebounds before fouling out in the third overtime. Johnson had 15 points.
