ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Elena Delle Donne made a 10-foot jump shot as time expired to give the Chicago Sky a 70-68 victory over the Phoenix Mercury on Wednesday night.

Delle Donne's shot capped a Sky rally from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit for their second consecutive victory.

Epiphanny Prince scored 21 points to pace Chicago (23-9). Delle Donne had 18 while Sylvia Fowles added 13 points and 12 rebounds.

The Phoenix (18-14) had a four-game winning streak snapped despite 15 points from Candice Dupree and 12 apiece from DeWanna Bonner and Briana Gilbreath.

The Mercury were missing star Diana Taurasi, who was suspended one game for an accumulation of technical fouls. She picked up her ninth technical of the season in the third quarter against New York on Tuesday night.

Under WNBA rules, a player or coach is automatically suspended without pay for one game after receiving seven technical fouls during the regular season. For every two additional technicals that regular season, they will be automatically suspended for another game.

Taurasi, who is averaging nearly 21 points and 6 assists, sat out a game against Minnesota in July after getting her seventh technical.

Prince tied the game at 66 with a driving layup with 2:11 left in regulation and gave Chicago a 67-66 lead with a free throw with 33 seconds showing. Courtney Vandersloot hit another with 14 seconds remaining for a 68-66 advantage.

Jasmine James then ended the Mercury's stretch of nine straight misses with a jumper to force a 68-all deadlock with 5.8 seconds left in regulation.

Chicago hosts Atlanta on Friday and closes the regular season on Saturday at Western Conference-leading Minnesota. Phoenix entertains San Antonio on Friday and is at Los Angeles on Sunday.
