Jonquel Jones certainly is thriving in June.
Jones helped the Sun beat the Los Angeles Sparks last Thursday, scoring 18 points and grabbing eight rebounds in the 89-77 win. She followed that shining performance with a 17-point, 13-rebound, five-block outing Sunday in the Sun’s 65-59 victory over the Atlanta Dream.
The Sun currently enjoy a WNBA-best 6-1 record, and Jones’ contributions to that fast start have made her an early favorite for the WNBA’s Most Valuable Player award.
The WNBA named Phoenix Mercury star DeWanna Bonner the Western Conference Player of the Week.
