UNCASVILLE, Connecticut — Alex Bentley scored 25 points, Kelsey Bone added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and the Connecticut Sun beat Tulsa 80-74 on Wednesday night to extend the Shock's losing streak to 10 games.

It's Tulsa's longest losing streak since a WNBA-record 20-game skid in 2011.

All five starters for Tulsa (10-14) scored in double figures. Odyssey Sims and Karima Christmas scored 15 points apiece, and Riquna Williams added 14.

Sims scored 10 first-quarter points as Tulsa built a 29-23 lead. The Shock's lead hit double digits on Jordan Hooper's deep 3-pointer early in the second quarter.
