Diana Taurasi and Phoenix Mercury set up a shooting clinic as they scored the most points in a regulatory playoff game played over the 25-year history of the tournament on Thursday night in Las Vegas. Eight months after his torn operation on the Achilles heel, Alyssa Thomas gave Connecticut Sun a spark to win against Chicago Sky.

Both series stand with a 1-1 draw and the game will move to Chicago and Phoenix for the next Sunday’s series.

“We brought a different way of thinking, aggression into the game,” said Taurasi, who scored 37 points in the playoffs during the 117-91 victory. “These games follow. In Game 1, they were the aggressors. They played more physically. We did this today and we maintained it for a long time. “

Taurasi barely missed it despite suffering an ankle injury that forced him to stand out in the final four games of the regular season and the overture to the playoffs against New York. He hit 10 of his 13 shots and achieved an eight-point score over the course of his career.

His performance came shortly after Thomas scored 15 points, 11 rebounds and six assists and gave Sun a defensive strength for his series with Chicago. Thomas ’play was even more remarkable as he returned two weeks earlier from the Achilles tendon injury he suffered in January. The 79-68 win over Chicago was only the fourth game.

“You know, it’s probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced,” Thomas said of the injury he suffered in January while playing abroad. “There are many difficult days. I’m a perfectionist, and I’m just so used to cutting back on things. I was disappointed by the days that weren’t good and I couldn’t go after it or force myself.

“You’re really starting from scratch, just to learn to walk again. It was a slow, difficult process. But you just have to celebrate the little things. “

For Connecticut to keep up the momentum, the Sun must try and prevent the powerful Sky crime again. When Chicago scored less than 80 points this season, the team only won twice. In the opening, double-length thriller, Sky won 101-95 as Courtney Vandersloot had her second triple-double in WNBA playoff history.

TRAVEL ADVENTURES:

While Mercury and the Aces had no trouble getting flights to Phoenix, Sky and Sun had a harder time. Connecticut coach Curt Miller said at a post-match press conference that his team will be split into two flights from two different airports to get to Chicago. Sky had to get up at 3:30 in the morning and divide it into three different airports to get home on Friday.

Miller said he has the weird travel arrangements so his tall players don’t have to sit in the middle seats and are more comfortable on the flights.

“I want you to hear that,” he said. “He’s going through this tournament. This is what these amazing women experience who are the best in the world at what they do. “

TIP-INS:

The WNBA changed the format of the playoffs in 2016, only the second time there will be no semi-finals at least once in the semi-finals. . … Mercury’s 68 points in the first half of Game 2 was a record for the WNBA playoffs. … The WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year Kelsey Plum scored an average of 25 points in the first two matches of the series.

“ROAD” HOME GAME

Game 3 of the Mercury-Aces series is played in Arizona because Phoenix’s normal home is used by Disney on Ice. Arenas booked events in advance and it was not known that Mercury will be hosting a playoff match on Sunday. Mercury will also have to play away from his usual home in Match 4, as the Phoenix Suns will host the Los Angeles Lakers in an exhibition match on Wednesday night.
