Brionna Jones Shines Bright for Connecticut Sun with Career Night

Connecticut Sun forward Brionna Jones has stormed into this season with a vengeance, leading her team to a 12-5 record, and a comfortable third-place ranking in the league standings.

Last night’s 86-80 win over the Indiana Fever saw Jones put on yet another dominant display as she a career-high 34 points on 14-19 shooting from the field, while adding seven boards and three steals.

Jones, who exploded for 22 first half points over the Indiana Fever (currently 1-16), previously notched her career-high nine nights ago with 26-point outing in a win over the Dallas Wings.

2021 has been a breakout year for the former eighth overall pick.

Now in her fifth season, Jones is averaging career-highs in points (15.5), rebounds (6.7) and minutes played (31.4) in her second season as the Suns’ starting center.

This season’s undeniable display of dominance over the Eastern Conference also allowed Jones to earn her first career All-Star nod earlier this week. Jones, one of the main forces behind the Sun’s current four-game winning streak, has averaged 23.4 points and 7.6 rebounds on 66.2 percent shooting from the field over the last five games.
