Diggins, Shock edge Sky in OT

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Skylar Diggins scored a career-high 33 points, Glory Johnson had 22 and the Tulsa Shock beat the Chicago Sky 105-99 in overtime on Sunday in a nationally televised game that showcased the WNBA's pride campaign.

Odyssey Sims added 18 points for the Shock, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Jessica Breland scored a career-high 26 points and Epiphanny Prince added 24 for the Sky, who have lost six of seven.

Sky forward Elena Delle Donne, the 2013 WNBA rookie of the year, missed her fifth straight game due to a Lyme disease flare-up.

The Shock was 21 for 27 at the free throw line and 10 of 17 from beyond the arc.

In overtime, Jordan Hooper hit a 3 to give Tulsa a 102-99 lead with 59.7 seconds left. Courtney Paris blocked a Jamierra Faulkner shot and Diggins made a jumper for a 104-99 lead with 32.2 seconds left.

Breland fouled out with 3:21 left as Tulsa led 92-91.
