WNBA

Forward Eva Nemcova was 5 of 6 from the field and scored 18 points Tuesday night to lead the Cleveland Rockers to their sixth straight WNBA victory, a 73-64 win over the Houston Comets.

Center Isabelle Fijalkowski added 12 points for Cleveland (9-8), while guard Rushia Brown scored all of her 15 points in the second half.

Tina Thompson had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead the Comets (10-6), who were hampered by turnovers and a dismal 23 percent effort (6 of 26) from 3-point range.
