    After winning their first two games (including one on the road), the Mercury are on a losing streak. Is it complacency? Whether or not, I expect Sandy can correct it.

    But with Brittney being inconsistent from game to game (depending on who is defending her), the backup Center role is apparently too much to put on rookie Marie Gülich.

    I am glad to see they wasted no time in signing 6'6" Angel Robinson as backup Center. That should make a big difference.

    It is a good example why our Mighty Mercury are three time League champions. They don't stare at problems for months. And they realize the importance of a balanced roster.

    Tonight's game (Friday June 1st) is being televised on ESPN2 (Cox channel 32) at 5:00 PM.

    I hope to see the Mercury come back to life.

    'Looks like I'll be missing the first half hour or so of the D-backs game at 6:30.

    At the half, it's Phoenix 52-50 Both the Mercury and Minnesota are 2-3 this season.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    And it's 75-70 Mercury at the end of the 3rd quarter. What a fun game!

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    The Mercury ends their 3-game losing streak (and a 13-game losing streak to Minnesota) to even their record at 3-3. A 10-point victory -- 95-85.

    DT, BG and DB the stars of the game for Phoenix.

    We have lost so many in a row to MN. We need this game! Turner with two 3s. Griner has been hot with those mid range jumpers.

    And the Mercury win another and are now 4-3. We beat Atlanta on the road.

    Our big three lead the way. Diana with 20 points & 8 assists; DeWanna with 20 points, 7 boards & 6 assists and Brittney with 17 points & 7 boards.

    DT and DB tied for our scoring lead with 20.
    BG and DB tied for our rebound lead with 7.
    DT led us with 8 assists, DB had 6 and January had 5.

    Atlanta's C and PF each had 10 rebounds.

    My fav, DeWanna Bonner, was right up there in all three categories. DT and BG are our stars. DB is the difference maker.

    Game was on Twitter this evening. We pulled out a win. It wasn’t pretty but we came back to take the lead and held on for a road win. 6 wins in a row!
