PHOENIX (AP) - Candice Dupree scored 15 of her 19 points in the first half as the Phoenix Mercury lengthened their franchise-best winning streak to 10 games with a 90-61 victory Sunday over the San Antonio Stars.
The Mercury (16-3) used a second quarter run to take a 20-point lead at the break and led by as much as 31 in the second half in winning their 12th game in the last 13 and have the best record in the league by 1.5 games with the All-Star break coming at the end of the week.
Diana Taurasi had nine points, eight rebounds and eight assists in 24 minutes while Brittney Griner recorded 10 points, six rebounds and a blocked shot. She has 75 blocks on the season, more than twice as many as any other player in the league.
Danielle Robinson had eight points and Jayne Appel added six points and seven rebounds for San Antonio (11-11), which has lost two straight after winning four of five.
