NEW YORK (AP) — Tina Charles scored a season-high 28 points and Cappie Pondexter added 21 to help the New York Liberty beat the Tulsa Shock 90-74 on Tuesday night.

Charles, who also had 14 rebounds, had 20 points in the first half before Pondexter took over for New York (6-11).

Tulsa (6-10) trailed by 11 points at the half before Skylar Diggins rallied the Shock to 62-58 with 36.5 seconds in the third quarter.

The Liberty then scored the next 10 points to put the game away. Pondexter had an acrobatic three-point play where she flipped the ball over her head and was fouled. On the next possession Sugar Rodgers followed with her own three-point play that made it 72-58.

Tulsa could only get within 11 the rest of the way. Diggins finished with 23 points, including 20 in the second half.

New York has won three of its last four games.
