Brittney Griner got the dunks in her pro debut, becoming the first WNBA player to do it twice in one game.
Elena Delle Donne had the better game and got the rout against the only player drafted ahead of her.
Della Donne outplayed No. 1 overall pick Griner and had one of the best rookie debuts in WNBA history, scoring 22 points to lead the Chicago Sky over the Phoenix Mercury 102-80 Monday.
"Today was absolutely amazing," said Delle Donne, whose debut was sixth-best in league history. "We came here to get a win, and that's what we're leaving with."
Griner threw down a one-handed dunk early in the fourth quarter and a two-handed dunk in the closing minutes. She joined Candace Parker (twice) and Lisa Leslie as the only WNBA players to dunk in a regular-season game.
But the dunks turned out to be little more than a sideshow to the Sky's dominating performance.
"I wish it was in a win, but whenever I can dunk, the crowd got into it," said Griner, who had 17 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.
Led by Delle Donne's 16 points, Chicago took advantage of Griner's early foul trouble and took a 56-32 halftime lead. After picking up her third foul with 2 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter, Griner sat out the rest of the half.
