Game Update: Sun down Liberty, 89-84

Tamika Whitmore and Asjha Jones combined for 34 points and the Connecticut Sun withstood another late-game charge by the New York Liberty to capture an 89-84 win Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Playing on a sore Achilles' tendon, Lindsay Whalen added 15 points for Connecticut (4-1), and back-up Jamie Carey had 11. The Liberty (1-3) cut the Sun's lead to two points late in the third quarter and four with a minute to play in the fourth, but they couldn't avoid their second defeat to the Sun this season despite putting five players in double figures, including rookie Essence Carson (15 points).

Matt, what about Coach Thibault's comment about the Sun making "dumbass turnovers" against the Liberty?
