CHICAGO (AP) - Elena Delle Donne scored a career-high 26 points and Sylvia Fowles added her fifth double-double of the season as the Chicago Sky rallied from an early deficit on the way to a 87-74 WNBA victory Wednesday afternoon.

Fowles had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Chicago (6-3), Epiphanny Prince had 14 points and Shay Murphy added 13.

``Our defense allows us to run in transition,'' Delle Donne said. ``We have to get stops in order to get out and run ... And my shot felt good today, I got some extra adrenaline because the last game it was poor. It's nice to see hard work pay off.''

Cappie Pondexter scored 21 points while Leilani Mitchell added 12 for New York (4-4).

Leading 62-61 to open the fourth, the Sky took command with eight straight points and hit their largest lead to that point 75-64 on a Prince's free throw on a technical foul with 4:46 remaining.

``We went back to the ways we had in the first part of the season - turning the ball over and we're not good enough to turn the ball over like we did in spurts,'' he said. ``That's what got them going in the second quarter.''

The Liberty climbed to within five points with 2:42 to play. Delle Donne pushed the lead back to nine at 83-74 with 94 seconds remaining with a driving layup, drew a foul and hit the shot.

``We don't know yet,'' Laimbeer said. ``We'll have to wait and see what the doctors have to say.''
