The Cleveland Rockers wasted no time time pushing aside the Charlotte Sting.

The Rockers shot 66 percent from the field in the first half en route to an 85-69 victory Sunday night in the WNBA."It's nice to finally play Charlotte and know that we can compete with the best in the division," said Cleveland coach Linda Hill-MacDonald, whose team led 50-26 at the half.

"Every game is critical, it doesn't matter who the opponent is. Every game is important if we want to make the playoffs."

The Rockers ended the Sting's five-game winning streak.
